My name is Sis (short for Sidsel) McKeith, and I have been working as a yoga teacher and therapist in the Newcastle area for the last 10 years. With a background in nursing, project management and marketing, I fell in love with yoga after my own experience of rehabilitating an injured knee following surgery, intensive physiotherapy and finally yoga. Having experienced the calming and healing benefits of yoga, I decided I wanted to train to be a teacher in order to share those learnings safely with others. Once on that path, I found I was drawn more strongly to the therapeutic aspects of yoga. I continued my training to qualify as a yoga therapist and have been honoured to be able to share these teachings with both individuals and small groups ever since.

At Urban Angel therapy centre, I work on a one to one basis with people who come to me with physical and/or emotional pain, or who simply feel they would prefer to have a yoga practice modified and tailored to their individual need rather than practise in a group. No prior experience is needed.

What to expect from a yoga therapy session with me:

After an initial free, no-commitment phone consultation, I may ask you to complete a health information form and to share with me some of your history including energy levels, sleep patterns and other lifestyle factors.

The information you provide me with will form the basis for our first session, where we will explore how yoga therapy might support you and a goal or goals for the work we do together. During the first session together, we will also look at posture, movements, breathing and other practices that may support you, with the aim of developing a practice or practices that you can take away with you to do at home.

Yoga therapy may be used to:

  • reduce symptoms of illness or injury
  • establish more functional breath and movement patterns
  • reduce physical and mental suffering
  • improve quality of life

By practicing connecting to your body through sensation and breath, yoga therapy can powerfully help you become more present with the deeper parts of you and learn to become more aware of habitual patterns of being. With greater awareness, positive change may become more possible.

Benefits might include:

  • greater connection to your physical body
  • enhanced awareness of how breathing impacts your physiology and emotional health
  • greater access to your own internal healing resources
  • a “tool kit” of practices you can do at home in your own time to support your wellbeing

    Conditions Treated
    I welcome clients with a variety of health conditions with the intention of working together to find ways to reduce physical and emotional suffering.

    Using a combination of movement, breath work, personalised yoga practices and somatic counselling skills.

    I have worked with people presenting with a variety of conditions including back, neck, shoulder, pelvis and knee pain and other persistent pain conditions; arthritis, chronic fatigue, anxiety, depression, stress related conditions and cancers.

    Yoga therapy can promote positive health in people of all ages who would like to cultivate greater physical or emotional balance in their lives.
