Freda Summerfield (aka Dr Razvi)

Yoga Practitioner

Freda Summerfield (aka Dr Razvi) is a qualified medical practitioner, presently undergoing training as a yoga teacher.

She undertook medical speciality training in Diabetes and Endocrinology and general medicine. This was followed by a working gap year with the family in New Zealand. More recently she has been working alongside GPs in the vaccination programme and also works with Newcastle and Sunderland medical schools.

Her yoga journey started as a junior doctor to help with the stress of the job and has continued since. In more recent years she became more active with yoga and finally took the plunge and started yoga teacher training at the start of 2021. This is due to be completed by December 2021.

Freda is a fell runner and triathlete, also hoping to combine paddleboarding with yoga to incorporate her love of open water swimming.

Her yoga style is Vinyasa yoga. It involves a flowing yoga style with lots of hip and chest opening, core strengthening and strong stances as well as gentle yin style yoga with breathing exercises and mindfulness.
