FRIENDS OF FINDRA
Yoga teacher & mountain bike guide
I’m a Yoga teacher based in the green heart of Wales, when I’m not on my yoga mat inspiring others to practice yoga, I can be found mountain biking in and around the Cambrian Mountains.
Having grown up riding ponies in the Brecon Beacons, I was happy to discover that a bike gave me the same sense of freedom and fun.
I went on to train as a Mountain Bike Leader, first with CTC (now Cycling UK) then more recently becoming a British Cycling Level 2 Mountain Bike Guide. I love guiding both mixed and women-specific groups, and especially enjoy encouraging and building confidence in new riders to the sport, which is why I now run my own guiding company called Mountain Yoga Breaks. It’s never too late to start something new.
For me, riding is all about getting out into nature, discovering new places or routes, pedalling away from our busy day-to-day lifestyles and taking time to unwind and reflect. I favour multi-day adventures in the UK, riding straight from home, carrying what I need, taking friends with me to share the experience and more importantly to just enjoy the ride.
