Vicky Fox 

Vicky Fox is a yoga teacher and trainer and author of ‘Yoga for Cancer' and 'Time to Repair'. Vicky began teaching yoga in 2008 and since 2013 she has specialised in helping those affected by cancer to manage the side effects of their diagnosis and treatment through yoga.

 Her classes empower students to become present in the most challenging times, release scar tissue and tension in their body and build strength which may be lost. Her second book “ A time to Repair” focuses on how we can use yoga as a tool for healing with short sequences that are easy to fit into your day.

Favourite Props

I am a huge fan of yogamatter yoga props and think they are such an essential part of making a yoga class accessible to everyone. Yoga bricks and chairs elevate the floor making poses like forward folds safe and achievable. I love a yoga strap to help lengthen my arms or to use as a prop to give feedback on a pose for example looping a strap around the base of the ribs to “feel” breath moving front, side and back of the rib cage as you breathe into the strap. Bolsters are great to allow us to let go and release areas of the body that are being held tight. Often we hold tension at the front of the body so its great to drape yourself over a bolster, breathe and allow the body to let go of tension.
