If you are interested in learning more about Yoga and my teaching style.
This is a mixed ability yoga class that combines elements of Ashtanga with traditional alignment based Hatha Yoga. Perfect for students who want to develop their own dynamic, invigorating Yoga practice that will nourish mind, body and soul. The classes are structured in a very similar way each week, and you will learn some basic meditation techniques, sun salutations, standing poses, strength building exercises, traditional seated postures and movements, and deep relaxation techniques. This class is open to students of all levels. You will be encouraged to find your own limits and pace within the practice, always honouring what your body is capable of. Through repetition you will quickly notice that your body is becoming more supple, stronger and your mind more equanimous. Sounds good huh? so why not come and join us every week as we safely cover the basics and learn how to build and develop your own yoga practice in a fun and engaging way
Be warned though, you might just surprise yourself at what you can achieve!
I keep the classes fun and it is my mission not only to guide you through your practice but also to take time to explain the reasons we do each specific movement or posture, and and what effects it can have on the body. My aim in doing this is to give you a practice that you feel confident doing on your own, anywhere, anytime and can be used to maintain optimal physical and mental health. Sounds good right? So what are you waiting for? Use the calendar below to reserve your space, and come along to learn how to breathe, balance, and stretch your way to a healthier, happier you.
Check out the video below, an advanced demonstration of some of the postures and movements that we will cover in class.
