Hello! My name is Ulrike Schade and I consider myself privileged to live in a small rural hamlet on the beautiful Island of Anglesey. A traumatic breakdown brought me to this quiet place, where I rediscovered Yoga which was so instrumental in my road back to health.
My healing process has been encouraged by adding raw and living foods such as daily fresh pressed juices and sprouted pulses to my vegetarian diet. I can now again embrace life with joy and it is my wish that by teaching Yoga I may lead others under mental and physical stress on a holistic journey towards health, happiness and well-being.
A large part of my Yoga practice encompasses not only awareness of mind and body but mindfulness of the delicate Earth we live on and the need to tread lightly on the gift Mother Nature has given us. It is easy to lose our way in the stressful, technological world that we in the West inhabit, and to forget the origin of our roots.
Yoga provides me with the tools to ground myself, to stop and take stock of my surroundings, and to enjoy what Nature provides, be it a breathtaking sunrise over Snowdonia, the wind whispering in the trees, the birds on my feeders or the snowdrops beginning to peep out of the frozen ground, heralding a not so far off Spring. I breathe all this into my inner soul and rest in the knowledge that all the best things in life really are free.
