Weekly classes include the practice of physical postures (asana), breathing exercises (pranayama) and meditation techniques.  In class we explore the science of yoga through our practice; allowing us to strengthen our body and bring 'stillness' to the mind.

My aim is to support the student in undertaking an intelligent approach to yoga.    To begin with I ask all new students to complete a health screen questionnaire, detailing any injuries or medical conditions.  This gives me an indication of what is going on inside the body and I keep that information in mind as I teach the class.  Through verbal instructions I aim to support each student so that they may take their body to a place of healing.  

 

General Yoga Classes

Classes are sequenced in the tradition of Hatha Yoga, with the use of props to allow you to access the benefit of the postures regardless of your level of fitness and age.  

The classes incorporate breath work, a flow/vinyasa segment and then static postures are introduced.  Specific alignment cues are provided throughout the class in order for each student to tailor the practice to fit their needs, injuries or medical conditions.  

Students are encouraged to work within their own limits, and towards their individual aims.

 

Restorative / Yin

In this class Yin and Restorative yoga postures are combined as an opportunity for you to disconnect from the busyness of the week.  Suitable for all levels of experience, it targets the connective tissues of the body, improving flexibility as opposed to more dynamic practices. 

The postures are supported by props, allowing you to completely rest and relax. 

A slow moving class, focusing on the lower areas of the body such as the hips, pelvis, thighs and lower spine.  Postures are held for a period of between 3 to 5 minutes. 

Moving slowly through each posture, whilst incorporating deep breathing techniques, triggers the parasympathetic nervous system which is of great benefit in increasing your ability to consciously relax.  

 
Meditation Classes

Meditation is not meant to take you away from life but allows you the opportunity to be present to every moment, every breath.  

The monthly meditation classes will cover techniques that are easy to understand and apply to your everyday life.  

A 45 minute class commencing with breathing techniques to trigger the parasympathetic nervous system, followed by guided meditation practice/s.  

 

 

The effects of yoga take place through practice, practice and more practice.  It is recommended that each person works on their practice in their own space, and then attends classes regularly so that I am able to assist them in growing and expanding that practice.  

Mats, blocks, bolsters, straps and yoga blankets provided.
