Sally Parkes began her journey in the health and fitness industry in 1998 after qualifying as a personal trainer and gaining a bachelor in Sport Science in the year 2001. Soon after, she experienced a deep calling to explore a more holistic approach to movement and breath, which led to Sally certifying as a yoga and pranayama teacher, training with Paul Dallaghan and Sri Tiwari at Centered Yoga in Thailand, in addition to studying at The K Pattabhi Jois Ashtanga Yoga Institute in Mysore, India.
From teaching her female students however, Sally could see that if yoga asana and pranayama was applied in a more bespoke manner with regards to the natural womb cycles that most women experience on a regular basis, the application of yoga could be even more profound. This led her to studying for several years in earnest with leader and pioneer in this field; Uma Dinsmore-Tuli, with whom she gained qualifications in Pregnancy and Postnatal Yoga and a Well Woman Yoga Therapy Diploma.
Since then, Sally has gone on to train as a Doula and a Pilates teacher and has established her own yoga teacher training school The Sally Parkes Yoga Academy in 2010, training over 1500 yoga teachers to date. Now specializing solely in women’s wellness, Sally’s academy offers yoga that honours the cycles of menstruation, fertility, pregnancy, postnatal and menopause.
Sally is also the author of three books, including bestseller The Manual of Yoga Anatomy, as well as Modern Essential Guide to Yoga: Discover the Best Postures, Meditations, and Breathing Exercises for Complete Physical and Spiritual Well-Being, and The Yoga Healing Handbook. She also writes anatomy- and physiology-based articles for several publications including Om Yoga & Lifestyle Magazine and UltraFit Magazine to name a few. She is also a teacher for Movement for Modern Life and often writes for their blog.
Sally now lives in West Sussex, UK, with her two young daughters, and teaches yoga and Pilates internationally as well as from home.
We are so excited to welcome Sally, who is also our founder Michelle El Khoury's teacher and fellow Yoga Gives Back ambassador!
