Lotus Petal Healing is owned by Yoga Teacher and Reiki Practitioner Rimpy Batta.
I have practiced Hatha Yoga since 2005 and completed the British Wheel of Yoga Teachers Diploma Course. This is recognised as REPs Level 3 (Register of Exercise Professionals). I have previously been a member of REPs. I am currently a CIMSPA member. I have been teaching since 2011 and qualified in 2012. I have a gentle style, encouraging students to move within and beyond their limitations. The class styles include Hatha, Vinyasa and Yin. My main interests which are reflected in the yoga sessions are posture practice, breath work, correct alignment, encouraging a sense of health and well being, and of course, relaxation.
I am also planning yoga retreats in the future. Watch this space!!
My interest in chakras and how these can be rebalanced and cleansed for health and well being, led to an interest in Reiki. In 2010, I trained for the Level 1/Foundation degree in Usui Reiki. In late 2011, I trained as a Reiki Level 2 practitioner. I am a UK Reiki Federation Member.
I regularly attend Continuing Professional Development workshops for both Yoga and Reiki to ensure my practice is current.
I have a career background in Psychology and have worked in Mental Health and Substance Misuse in the NHS and Third Sector and have held a variety of posts as a clinician, team manager, Strategy Lead and Commissioner. I have also worked at a regional level as an Assistant Director. Since the COVID – 19 pandemic started in March 2020, I resumed my career at Board level as a non executive director/trustee. I served a year at a local charity enabling recovery from addictions. I currently serve on two local charity boards as trustee. One as Safeguarding lead and the other as LINK trustee for Primary and Secondary Care User Engagement and also Mental Health for an organisation which ensures people can access health and social care services.
I am keen on health promotion, especially in the workplace and offer Yoga sessions for organizations who would like to realise the benefits as part of a broader health and well being strategy. Recognising the need for and benefit of looking after one self holistically – including at a psychological, physical, emotional and mental level the yoga and reiki sessions respond to these needs. The sessions will challenge you and leave you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
I have also taught yoga to young people with severe profound multiple physical and learning disabilities at a specialist school during term time.
