About Me

Hi, my name is Richenda but people call me Roo.

I live on the coast of North Devon, in a cosy little flat with a stunning (often stormy) sea view.  I share this wonderful space with my beautiful daughter, my fiancé, a tatty terrier dog and a very fluffy cat.

I’m a trained Holistic Therapist with 8 years experience working for a wonderful Wellness Spa, nestled on the fringes of Exmoor. My approach to my practice and life, are characterised by a belief that our physical, emotional, social and eating habits, are all intimately interconnected to form the whole. I have always been on some kind of quest to understand the human race, often with a need to restore balance and peace within myself.

I am not sure how many yoga classes I attended before I realised that Yoga, was in fact a deeply spiritual practice. Perhaps my love of India, has been silently guiding me to find the space to reconnect to myself. Through repetition and showing up to meet my mat, I have experienced a sense of grounding, mental clarity and acceptance of the continuing changes within oneself. I am delighted to have had the opportunity to train and complete my 200 hour YTTC Teacher Training. I hold a lot of gratitude and space for this spiritual practice and I am so happy to be able to share this with you. 

I also have a real passion or should I say appetite, for creating and sharing nourishing food. I unquestionably love to eat and the bonding of people over a meal – while subtly making a community, holds something of magic for me. There’s nothing I like more than sitting down with a wholesome bit of cake and a nice cuppa.  I’m pretty sure it nourishes the soul!

My notion is to travel on the exploration of holistic health together. From my own experience, I can share with you, that to INVEST IN YOURSELF, will be the best decision ever made. Please follow the links in my menu for more information on recipes, on-line yoga classes and complementary therapies, that I offer in the beautiful countryside of Devon. I hope by the practice of kindness, that together we can pour love into our hearts and open the minds of the people that surround us. Creating a healing ripple effect, that reaches far and wide.

Namaste
