My name is Georgie Bassford and I've lived with my husband and three children in Bath since 2003 and
taught yoga here since 2004.
I don't teach a specific style of yoga, although over the years I've developed specialisms in pregnancy, postnatal yoga and women's health, as well as yin yoga. I bring to my classes whatever new ideas I'm learning, share my inspirations and try new things. And I am still learning. Of course!
"You teach best what you most need to learn" Richard Bach
It's very important to me honest and authentic, to keep studying the ancient wisdom as well as the latest understanding about the mind and body and to bring this to my classes. I particularly am inspired by the work of people Gary Carter of Natural Bodies, a world authority in the field of fascia and myofascial (muscle) within a yoga context and am always love anyything by Katy Bowman of Nutritious Movement. I also regularly attend in-person workshops and online trainings, which you can see below.
Yoga is not a religion. It's not a panacea. But it has the potential to be life changing, moving you in the direction of good health and happiness. Yoga can be fun or serious. fast-paced or slow, intense or relaxing, solitary or companiable, and much more besides. You know your mind and body better than anyone else and in my classes you're encouraged to be your own teacher, listening to your instincts so you get the most out of every class and leave feeling uplifted, happier and healthier than when you walked in!
