I am Tracey Fletcher, a fully insured teacher registered with the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) and a qualified and experienced Equine Reiki Practitioner.
I was born and brought up in rural Yorkshire surrounded by a menagerie of animals – horses, sheep, pigs, dogs and cats – and everything that goes along with them.
As a child, I was a bit of a paradox: on the one hand having all the instincts of a tomboy, while at the same time being irresistibly drawn to stereotypically girly accessories – I wouldn’t think twice about climbing a tree in my best skirt or mucking out horses with pink toenails!
When my two sons came on the scene, having previously followed a career in finance and accounting I decided to take some time out to be Mummy. We all share a love of animals and I am once more surrounded by cats, dogs, rabbits and a tortoise.
My belief in the power of complementary therapies began at an early age as a teenager having had first-hand experience of their benefits on the health and wellbeing of myself and my close family. I continued to discover and positively use holistic therapies in the course of both my pregnancies and throughout my children’s early years, right up to the present day.
Following a suggestion from an existing practitioner, I began to train as a Reiki therapist, qualifying in 2008. Since that time, I have retained my regular clients who come to me with a wide range of issues, the symptoms of which can be greatly reduced by Reiki treatments.
Given my love of animals, the next logical progression was to extend my Reiki training to cover equine Reiki therapy which I completed in 2016.
As someone who has attended several different yoga classes and experienced different teachers over the years, my yoga adventure really started when I came across a truly inspirational teacher. I was encouraged to begin my training with The British Wheel of Yoga to enable me (I hope) to pass on that same inspiration to others. So, in 2016 I began a 500 hour Level 4 Yoga Teaching Training Diploma course with the British Wheel of Yoga. The BWY is the National Governing Body for yoga and the largest yoga membership organisation in the UK. It has a well-established teacher training programme with a network of over 4,000 qualified teachers. It is committed to promoting a greater understanding of yoga and its safe practice. This course is not to be taken lightly, but it was very rewarding, and I am now a fully qualified practicing Teacher of Hatha Yoga.
Practicing reiki, yoga and meditation daily has a strong grounding effect and has brought me mindful calmness and clarity.
I feel passionate about sharing all the benefits of these wonderful therapies, all of which have had a huge positive impact on my life.
One of the main lessons I have learned when studying complementary therapies is that the holistic approach – the union of mind, body and spirit – can contribute hugely to a sense of overall wellbeing.
