STRETCH & RELAX

These classes are suitable for all levels of fitness.  No previous experience of yoga is necessary as postures and practices are demonstrated and the pace is fairly easy going.  There is scope for plenty of extension work for those more able and giving time to explain to those less experienced.  We warm up all parts of the body and work on stretching and strength asana (postures) – sometimes flowing and sometimes static.  In this class you will learn about your own body, strengthening any weak areas and opening stiff joints. We work on breathing exercises (pranayama) and end with a 15 minute relaxation session dissolving stress and anxiety.  Students leave clam yet invigorated.

YOGA & MEDITATION

These classes are suitable for all levels of fitness.  Previous experience of yoga in one of the 1 hour STRETCH & RELAX class is highly beneficial to gain the necessary understanding of yoga practice and to develop the strength and flexibility of your own body. The class includes asana work with the emphasis on physical and mental equilibrium.  The class incorporates pranayama for relaxation and to develop concentration where we sit still for 15 minutes. The practice of mudra, bandha, mantra and chanting are included where appropriate.  We end the class with a guided meditation and/or deep relaxation.

YOGA FIT

Suitable for all levels of fitness, the emphasis with these classes is to move the body through correctly aligned flowing posture work in unison with the breath. No previous experience of yoga is necessary – just an open mind and an open heart.  Following a warm up, postures are learned with key aspects highlighted and towards the end of the hour the ‘flow’ is practised all together. The class ends with a 5 minute breathing exercise.

My classes are based on 14 years personal practice of yoga and 4 years teaching gaining much valuable insight from my students.  My main teacher comes from a tradition of yoga called Satyananda.  This style of yoga has a strong element of discipline and takes a balanced approach to the posture, breathing and relaxation exercises.  That said, I adapt the classes to suit the level of the participants and also to suit the time of year and my own inclinations – I draw influences from other styles of yoga, adding a sprinkling of my own personality and fun elements as much as time allows.  Due to the nature of my classes, I don’t offer ‘drop ins’.

Please book by email beforehand as places are limited and arrive 10 minutes early to settle in. You will need to bring a mat, blocks and blanket.  Please allow extra time before your first class to find the hall and fill out a registration form.
