Whether you are a complete beginner or a regular yoga practitioner, practising yoga integrates breath, movement and mind, which is accessible and achievable for everyone. With the right ‘yogic’ tools, there can be a wonderful feeling of bringing a sense of wholeness and stillness to you in a not so still world that we live in.
During a class the body, breath and mind are sensitively integrated through fluid and rhythmic movements of steady vinyasa (sequence) flow, linking breathing exercises (pranayama), mudras (symbolic hand gestures), bandhas (energy locks), meditation and relaxation practices. There is an emphasis on the internal energetic system, to nourish and bring vitality to the organ and meridian (energy channel) systems, allowing the body, breath, mind and spirit to connect and restoring a sense of well being, balance and harmony. Experimenting with these “tools” of yoga will enhance our physical and mental health, whilst cultivating a deeper sense of awareness and inquiry.
Classes are taught in a relaxed, tranquil, warm and airy environment, with priority on safety and sensitivity. The classes are of mixed abilities and I accept students who have no experience of practising yoga. I provide a wide variety of props and equipment.
