I’m David manos venus

Yoga Teacher & Massage Therapist

Reclaim your breath, reclaim your peace of mind.

Massage Therapy

When someone says ‘massage’, we tend to think ‘stiff muscles’ or ‘sore back’.

But a good massage is so much more than that. 

It’s hard to put into words, but have you ever been stopped in your tracks by a  beautiful sunset…that moment where everything disappears including a sense of yourself?

That’s my gift to you…

A moment to not be a parent, or a business owner, or a friend or a partner…to be free from questions and expectations. 

A moment simply to be. 

I offer hot and cold stone therapy and myo-facial release.

Movement Therapy

I used to move like a brick…

In fact, I was so stiff, the massage therapist I had at the time called me ‘Mr Mahogany‘ 

Today, I wouldn’t say I was “graceful”, but at 44 years old, I move with a whole lot more ease and grace than I ever did.

And of course, I now understand the link between mind and body. 

My thoughts and feelings used to create my vision of the world.  Tense and ready to react at a moment’s notice!

I restored my movement and my breath connection, and in return this restored my ability to fall in love with the world again.


Helping You, Help Yourself

Unlock Your Full Heart Space. Say Hello to YOUR WISER SELF

In the background you’ll see the view from my beautiful home studio. 

There isn’t always a rainbow but there is always a calming view.

On a clear day you can see out to Coquet Island, home of the Puffin. 



Anxiety, general tension, chronic fatigue…


People, just like you, come here to relax & rejuvenate.


We can have a quick chat about what’s got you so stressed and I’ll suggest a few tools to pop in your self-nourishment tool-box or you can just lie down and I’ll guide you into a deeply relaxing space.


Whether it’s just a massage or whether its a massage and a chat.  These sessions are rare opportunities to be fully seen and listened to.

Goal Setting

Clearer goals means you’re more focused on the things that matter and less likely to get distracted by the things that don’t!  I offer ways to get specific about what you need and why and practical solutions about how you can suceed. 


Crossroads time?  Stay in your unfulfilling job…or is it time to make a leap into an extraordinary version of you!  I’ve helped many different clients over the years from Royal Marines to people with chronic health conditions.   I will make space for you exactly where you’re at. 

Stress Management

Stress, anxiety, burn out, chronic fatigue, general ill-health that doesn’t seem to make sense….

As we get older we worry about health more and my holistic approach will help you move you worries into a places of empowerment. 


Long Term Support

 Ever thought you would make a great healer but don’t know where to start?  I offer year long programmes called ‘Phoenix Rising’ to take you further into your health and  wellbeing potential.  

What Is Beach Yoga?
Who is Outdoor Yoga For?

Yoga in the outdoors is an incredible experience.  And whilst we don’t always have unbroken sunshine here in Northumberland, we do always have Mother Nature’s listening ear.  Come and sit in the dunes and let the sound of the waves wash your cares away.  

Forrest Yoga

Forrest Yoga is known for long static poses.  We hold each pose long enough to really get a feel for the therapeutic effects to take shape.

Stretch Therapy

Stretch Therapy (ST) is a comprehensive system that includes stretching, fascial remodelling, strengthening, neural re-patterning, and relaxation. The goals are grace and ease, and this is experienced as enhanced awareness and elegance in movement.

Find someone who will listen

We all have things that trouble us from time-to-time.  Finding a good listener can be such a relief.  If we’re lucky, our partners and close friends make key ‘listeners’ but most of us don’t want to overburden partners who also have their own stresses and problems.  A professional ‘listener’ can be the perfect solution.


Bodywork looks and feels a lot like massage but the aim is really quite different.  Through touch and other senses we are deeply listening to the body in order bring about a natural state of stillness.  It’s about harmonising the body, spirit and mind. It’s also about accessing and releasing the bodies stored experience of trauma.


If you are called to do deeper soul work I have been initiated in the Munay Ki healers rites.  Soul retrieval and journeying for soul contracts are the most requested ceremonies I perform.  I have testimonials from clients if you would like to know more.

About Me

I’m honest.

At least that’s what my clients say when I ask for feedback!

I’ve also been compared to a Hobbit on more than one occasion!

I’d love to say ‘unfairly compared to a Hobbit’, but I wouldn’t feel out of place in The Shire.  I love green spaces, simple food, and have an aversion to technology that has any  than two working parts – a spade with it’s wooded shaft and metal blade is complicated enough!
