Personalised and private - Yoga created for your body, your age, your needs.
All classes are geared, but not restricted to the mid-lifer, the Yoga novice and those with physical limitations or concerns, but suitable for yogis of all levels.
If you have difficulty moving, getting down to the floor (and up again) have restrictions caused by arthritis or injury, my classes could be the right Yoga for you.
I attend to the needs and limitations of the practioner, ensuring they approach asana safely; by adapting the practice to the individual.
No need to leave home! Create a welcoming place in your home where you can practice with instruction at a time that is best for you.
Option to practice via ZOOM
Classic Hatha Flow and Hold
A slow to moderately paced class of asanas (postures) that ‘flow’ from one pose to the next, in union with the breath.
This Classic Flow is slow, mindful movement with a focus on lengthening and strengthening, and engagement of the major and minor muscles.
Your individual Flow will be created just for you to help you acheive what you want and need.
Ideal for Yoga novices! Yin yoga is a floor based style of yoga where the posture is held for 2 to 5 minutes or more. Yin yoga works deep into the connective tissues to activate change at the deepest level. Focus is on the joints and tendons; opening, releasing and restoring.
Yin is a wonderful practice on its own, but also an excellent complementary practice to the more vigorous styles.
AND MORE YIN...
Go deeper, be quieter, feel complete release with this Yin and Myofascial Release (MFR) practice. This practice blends Yin yoga with MFR using balls and props to release the adhesions in the fascial body. These adhesions hold onto the tension, stress, and injury that cause stiffness and pain.
Move better, sleep better, feel better!
And then there is this...
Yoga Nidra - Ancient and beautiful
Yoga Nidra is a form of meditation. It is a unique combination of deep relaxation and alert awareness that rejuvenates and renews both the physical body and the mind.
As the body rests, you are guided through seven stages of relaxation. Your brain rhythms will drop into the alpha/theta state, where you ease into deep silence.
It is here that you simultaneously access the power of the logical left brain and the intuitive, insightful right brain.
Your sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems move into alignment to restore the body and mind to homeostasis.
This is a state of balance and oneness, where you can tap into creative powers beyond the ego-mind and have access to healing on a physical, mental and emotional plane.
