My Classes

All abilities are welcomed, yoga doesn’t discriminate and the individual is always the priority. 

Every ‘body’ is different and has different needs, therefore, advice can be given on which class is best suited to you.

Beginners 

At beginner level is where the attention to detail aspect of yoga is the main focus.  This is where your journey starts and a good foundation must be laid. 

If the main principles of yoga are missed at this crucial level, chronic injuries can occur and the opportunity to receive the many benefits of a yoga practice may be lost.

Correct breathing is taught and encouraged throughout as well as the ‘5 points of core’ method to strengthen at the joints and prevent injury.  This is achieved by using certain muscular engagements around the body as well as building good postural habits and better breathing techniques.

Chair Yoga 

For those who struggle with a mat based session. Perhaps getting up and down off the floor is challenging? Then, chair yoga is a great choice.

Seated yoga is an excellent way of receiving all the benefits of yoga in a safe and accessible way. 

This particular style of yoga should not be underestimated though as it is still a dynamic practice that will build strength and confidence quite quickly. 

All the yoga postures can be adapted and modified to a chair and standing positions are achieved with the use of the chair to hold on to for support and balance.

Sports yoga

In Sports Yoga classes you can expect to learn tried and tested, proven to work techniques that target the specific areas required for the chosen sport and its range of movement. 

Quite often in sport, warms ups are too general and cool downs are overlooked. Both these aspects are essential for injury prevention and longevity of sporting careers. Techniques in class teach how to prepare the muscles for action and how to minimise the build up of lactic acid after training to help get the most out of your sport.

We explore the respiratory system to make full breathing more accessible. Correct breathing gives power to performance as well as being able to calm performance nerves when needed.   

Sports yoga blends the science of sport with yoga to give the athlete an all-round practice that adds value to their sport and can bring balance to a training programme

 Restorative Yoga

This type of yoga is deeply relaxing and healing to both body and mind. It is a passive style of yoga, practiced with the use of bolsters, blankets and other props. This enables the student to access each position in a supported and comfortable manner.

The positions are similar to those in a regular yoga class, including backbends, forward folds, twists and inversions. Then, are held for anything between 2 and 20 minutes so that full relaxation is achieved.

Restorative yoga invites us to slow down, learn patience and take time out of our busy lives whilst having a deep impact on our physical and psychological selves leaving us refreshed, open and revitalised.

This can be offered as a 1:2:1 session or organised for larger groups.
