Yoga Classes

"I've been to quite a number of classes over the years, both in Australia and here but I must tell you that you are by far the best and most engaging teacher I have come across!  Your way of teaching is extremely welcoming and inclusive and I think you have a rare talent." Tracy Christmas, Cambridge

As with so many teachers, rather than teaching under one specific school of yoga, I'm influenced by many (such as sivananda, iyengar, scaravelli).  These are styles of hatha yoga (sometimes called the yoga of postures) that different people have created over the years and it's great because each will appeal to different people.  My classes incorporate what I have learnt and am continually learning through my own practice and on-going training which means what I teach is in constant flux!  Which is a good lesson to learn - nothing ever stays the same, change is a given.

 

Fundamental to all yoga asana practice is connecting with the breath and finding a calm space to practice mindfully.  Some of my classes are stronger and more demanding than others so check the timetable carefully.

 

I always hope that the qualities you develop on the mat will naturally, effortlessly spill over into your every day life so that you can see the positive repercussions of your practice reverberate through your day!

Slow Flow Yoga

My Slow Flow Yoga class is suitable for beginners or those with physical restrictions to movement.  We flow slowly from pose to pose, helping you to find your own comfortable alignment whilst building strength and flexibility.  There is always time for relaxation at the end and we work with breath practices and meditations too.

 

All levels, especially beginners.

Yang-Yin Yoga

My Yang-Yin Yoga classes are most suited to advanced beginners and improvers. This is an evening class and so it starts strong (yang) and finishes very slow, stretchy and meditative (yin).  Expect to move relatively quickly, but steadily and with no sense of rushing, through a flow of poses for the first full half hour of the class.

 

The second half of the class moves into deep, long held floor-based poses (yin poses) which work at deeply affecting the more intransigent tissues of the body and soothing the mind. There is then plenty of time for a pre-bed savasana and often a meditation too.  And all in one hour!

Restorative Yin Yoga

 

Yin yoga is focuses on slow, passive aspect of floor-based postures. Restorative yoga looks to nourish and support the body towards deep relaxtaion.  Restorative Yin Yoga is a mix of both!  It's a superb partner to more yang movements such as active, strong, muscluar yoga or other activities such as running, weights and so on, and works deeply with the connective tissues of the body to improve your flexibility.

 

Postures are held for extended periods of time (3-6 minutes) with little or no muscular effort to work deep into the layers of connective tissues. We focus on interoception through the practice - how the body feels from the inside - and during the time of stillness have an opportunity to work deeper (conciously and unconciously) on our physical, energetic and mental states of being.

 

It is a stunning practice for calming the mind, relieving symptoms of stress and anxiety whilst working deeply to restore your body's natural mobility. You could look at it as an hour of meditation with added benefits!
 

This class is suitable for beginners and improvers.
