You know so well what you want, and you are always looking for ways to get it, to move forward and progress in your life.
At times you are angry at yourself and towards others. Making you feel lonely and misunderstood.
You are tired of the extremes you live your life, either extremely happy or extremely sad, either feeling powerful and confident or feeling embarrassed and scared.
You know you are a beautiful, attractive woman but you are feeling lonely and frustrated for things not going well with your relationships.
You know how to look after yourself but with the high pressures from work and frustrated with your lack of progress you binge on food, alcohol, or take drugs to numb yourself.
You have a lot of energy, but inside you are exhausted from all the conflicts in your head and the emotional roller coaster you live in.
I know this because I was once YOU and I have transformed my life.
I am here to tell you CAN too.

I want to share my story with you and why I am so passionate about what I do.
Here's a sample of a master class I delivered recently online for free.
It will give you an idea of the work I do.
You might be asking to yourself if you can afford to pay the programme?
I am pretty sure you can.
I made sure the cost of the programme is very affordable.
What is more important to me, is that this is the right programme for you.
That it is the right time in your life to do this programme.
I have many different ways to help my students, this one is not the only one.
I prefer that we have a call and discover what is the best for you.
Want to know more? I answered the most common questions here.
1 - How long have you been doing what you do and how did you get to be a a Yoga teacher, Body & Mind Coach?
To answer this question is probably best of I share with you “my story” that brought me to where I am today, coaching people like you to fall in love with themselves and with their life.
A defining moment in my life was when I wanted help to get out of the deep depression I was in and no one could help me. I then said to myself: “I looks like no one wants to help me, so I am going to have to find a way to help myself!”
I had been in what I call a denial depression for about 5 years, but one day at work, with the pressures of work and tensions running high, I had an argument with my manager, started crying and couldn’t stop. I remember being in his office, leaning against the wall, facing him and tears started to come out, I didn’t want to cry because I always felt that I was crying meant I was a weak person, but I do cry very easily for any reason.
But there I was…. leaning with my back against the wall, my manager upset with the way I burst into his office, complaining that the whole world was against me. I remember him saying “Bene I can not do more for you!” and I just started crumbling down the wall, seating on my heels, hands on my face, crying and crying and crying, I could not stop, I could not speak.
Bernard was saying “don’t cry Benedita, please don’t cry”, but I couldn’t stop. I was all red in my face, sweaty, massive headache and the next thing I remember was coming out of the GP surgery calling Bernard, crying again, telling him the doctor told me I had a deep depression and could not go back to work for at least a month!!
I had a hard time to accept this but by that time the depression was stronger than me and hold me onto my room for 3 months.
Different people have different depression episodes, for me was that I did not want to be seen, I was so ashamed of myself that even when I went to spend a month with my mum, the times she took me out for a walk I would get into panic wanting to hide under her arm, conflicted that there was people around and they could see me.
When I think back I feel so sorry that I have put my mum through this and that she had to go through this with a daughter that was already 34 years old.
My mother love gave me the mental strength to come back to London and to go back to work. Unfortunately it didn’t go very well, the smallest think would trigger me and would make me want to hurt myself and disappear from this world.
This was when I went to different places asking for help, but I wasn’t bad enough to go to psychiatric hospital and wasn’t good enough to go to work.
I had to find a way to heal myself, by myself, for myself. I remember thinking “you can’t live like this!”
Today I understand that because I made that decision, the universe started to deliver everything I needed. I came across cognitive behaviour therapy, I attended anger management courses, I was back at practicing yoga, meditation almost every day and then I met my partner Ian.
Since then through the consistent practice of yoga, I started to notice more my actions and thoughts. I remember one day being in the canteen at work, looking at the buffet and wanting to stuff myself with every food there, but then I thought “I don’t need to eat all of that, you just want to do comfort eating, no I don’t want to do comfort eating, its crap!!” And I stoped myself!
It’s been over 6 years since this happen and since then I have been in a quest of learning what makes us stop loving ourselves and wanting to give up life. I have been learning the science behind the thinking mind, moving body and how the conditioned worl we live in affects our life.
Through consistent practice of yoga, meditation, healthy eating I have re-discovered the little girl inside me, that with the years was buried underneath the thick layer of life disappointments, frustrations, sadness, anger and resentment. I have become an unstoppable, courageous and inspiring human being that wants to share this gift that my life gave me.
Thank you Universe!
Through my years of teaching yoga in London and in Southampton I realised that I connect with the students in a unique way, at heart level and many connect back with me to help them.
Friends, work colleagues and fellow yoga teachers come to me for guidance and to help them finding the answers to their struggles and conflicts.
Since I gave up my corporate job I have made the commitment to follow my passion for yoga and help people to find love and peace.
2 - Who are your students exactly?
I work with student just like you.
Intelligent and driven beings that have been successful in many areas but something or some area is not going well. Students are feeling frustrated with their lack of progress and feeling trapped. They just need to be told exactly what to do to release them from the emotional roller coaster they are in.
3 - How are you different from other “yoga teachers/body & mind coaches“?
I only teach what I have experienced for myself. I have mastered the language of the brain and the language of the body. This means that I can help the students when they are trapped in their heads, in over-thinking and help them to connect to their bodies, to the truth.
The transformational work we do is deep and intense. I hear beyond the words the students speak, with compassion I go to the root of what is causing suffering and talk directly to their hearts, carving out the space to bring light and love. As a result students transform their life in many levels, feel freer, empowered and excited about life.
4 - What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?
The work I do is for students that have decided not to waste more of their life with “tomorrow will be better” and “I am fine”, put it under the carpet type of thing.
The programmes that I have created are for students who are absolutely excited and deadly serious about transforming their life.
I am an action person, so expect to take serious and consistent action. No excuses anymore, just a very different way of thinking and full support while you peel off the layers that don’t serve you anymore and restore your confidence and believe in your worth.
5 - For what type of student is the program NOT going to work for?
Please know I’m very selective in who I work with and I cherry-pick my students, choosing to (gently) turn away people who aren’t suited for the transformational work and won’t get the results for which they would have signed up for. (It wouldn’t be fair to them.)
The work I do is NOT for students that have no time to FOCUS on themselves, that want a quick fix with short lasting results, that are not prepared to invest time and energy in transforming their life and that are not open to change.
If you fall within this category, it’s absolutely OK. We’ve all been in times when other things take priority. Do yourself (3) favours:
1) Carve space out of your life so you can start taking little steps to have some quiet time, reading time, yoga time or meditation time, almost every day.
2) Take steps to create a routine that will keep you focus on what is important for YOU not for other people.
3) Stay in touch with me, receive my emails, listen to my FB lives, join the FB group “Southampton Yoga People” to help you to learn how to connect with yourself.
Doing these 3 things will really help you get primed for our work. When you’re ready, call me and we’ll get started. (I’m in no rush and will be here when you need me.)
6 - What does your programme include?
The programme includes yoga practice, meditation there will be food education, mindset coaching, accountability, group coaching, personal coaching and sustainable healthy living guidance.
7 - Does this really work?
Yes! The result of our work is an approach to life that, over time and with your dedication, works consistently to thrive through life, to have a balanced life and feel in peace with yourself.
8 - What results can I expect?
You can expect to:
Feel more energised, lighter, healthier, fitter and stronger.
Feel calmer, appeased, have more clarity and focus.
Feel in peace and content.
Feel your life shifting and flowing effortlessly.
9 - How quickly can I expect results?
Obviously, this depends on how much you dedicate to the programme and following the programme that I give you. That said, it is impossible not to feel some changes in yourself and notice some changes in your body within the first 2 weeks, however maintaining consistency is key to the success of the programme and to take in as much as possible.
Understand that it’s not a “quick fix,” it’s not magic and it takes up to 3 months for you to plant all the seeds and for those seeds to start growing. All my students who have diligently applied every step have successfully transform their life and have maintain their transformation after the programme.
10 - How do we get started?
Great! Did you know that one of the more prominent characteristic of people with fulfilled lives, healthier and happier is that they take a decision.
Any decision is better than no decision!
They take educated risks, are decisive, and they move forward towards what they want and get what they want as a result of this. It’s a well-known fact that these people make decisions based on their gut instinct. So, that being said, since this feels right for you, then go for it.
