About

Firm Feet Open Movement

CHARLIE BOYD

I am keen to use my knowledge and experiences as a way of helping others. I started to understand myself better with the learning of Traditional Chinese medicine healing system, movement and self expression through creativity. After years of chronic regular migraines, eating distress and amenorrhoea, I began to enquire deeper into nature. I experimented with alternative practices, herbal and plant medicines. With an overall practice of eating in season and according to my body’s needs, I became more in tune with myself and environment. I started listening to my body, expressing myself more with music, meditation and dance. My body became more balanced, my mind calmer and my physical issues began to shift and change and slowly disperse.

I am a singer and songwriter and work and train in Organic Horticulture and gardening. I have worked in various community and environmental projects in and around London. I am furthering my studies and experiences within the mental health sector with an interest in therapeutic gardening. I co-run yoga, dance and whole food nutrition retreats in various locations around the world. I offer one to one consultations and group sessions on nutritional and emotional balance.
