  • Gentle Yoga for strength and relaxation.

    Perfect for absolute beginners, students with injuries, students who want to learn the basics and enjoy a class that keeps the postures simple and accessible to everyone.

    Let's start at the very beginning.

    *Would you like to be
    strong, flexible, calm, relaxed, healthy, happy and confident?

    *Are you concerned yoga will be too difficult?

    *Enrol for the gentle yoga and relaxation class. The best place for every person new to yoga to start.

    *The class teaches you how to safely build a strong core, a flexible spine and how to use the breath to relax your body.
    Yoga terminology is introduced as well as Pranayama or breathing exercises.

    *No sitting postures, no kneeling, very gentle back bends.

    STRONG FOUNDATIONS ON WHICH TO BUILD.

    *This is a special class. I have been to many enjoyable and rewarding yoga classes but none start at the very beginning.

    Be ready after 10 weeks to join a regular class with confidence. Or continue in this class. Some of my most experienced students come along to this class regularly. All the postures can be adapted, Some students sit in a chair, everyone can practise.

    *You may begin the class anytime and pay as you go but this class is carefully structured to gradually introduce the important principles of yoga.

  • Morning & Evening Hatha Yoga Classes

    The General Class is suitable for beginners to experienced.

    All classes have a focus and as a guideline we practice 50 minutes Traditional Hatha Yoga. Which will increase your health, fitness, strength and flexibility. Followed by 10 minutes relaxation, learning to relax the body and the mind.

    Classes are casual and friendly and students have a wide range of experience

    BEGINNERS
    This class is suitable for beginners and I always demonstrate the gentle variation of each posture first. If you have an injury or are an absolute beginner you may want to start in the gentle yoga class. If you are unsure which class will suit you give me a call.

    STUDENTS WITH EXPERIENCE
    Are guided from the beginners posture into more advanced asana's as they continue to deepen their practice.

  • MIND YOGA-All classes

    "Yoga is the golden key which unlocks the door to peace, tranquility and joy"
    B.K.S. IYENGAR
    Yoga is a powerful learning tool to promote physical and mental well being.
    My classes teach yoga postures for the physical body but to create balance yoga should be much more than an exercise class. I am including something interesting, connected to Ayurveda and emotional well being in every class.
    I have spent many years studying and reading and I am bringing together all that I have learnt to create an enjoyable, interesting, relaxing and energising class.

    *Explore Pranayama & Meditation, Prana & Chi.

    *Explore essential oils and their effects on your mind.

    *Learn about the Chakras and how to use the philosophy behind them to change your life along positive lines.

    *Explore sound and music.

    *Learn Abhyanga - self massage of the face, neck and hands. Including the use of Marma points which are Ayurvedic massage and acupressure points in the body.

    *Learn how to adapt your practise to prevent depression and anxiety.

    *Learn how to adapt your practice as the seasons change. For example as the weather becomes hotter it is best not to practice lots of heating postures but cooling , calming postures.

I have just completed my 100 hour Yin Teacher Training.

I loved the course. It was very interesting and inspiring and has given me some wonderful ideas to bring into class, focusing on yoga and its benefits for the mind and emotional well being. I received a lovely email with my certificate.
" We are very happy and humbled to have been a part of your journey. You are an exceptional teacher and student and we know that you’ll continue to shine your light in the world with your wisdom and devotion to your Yoga path."
