Chair Yoga

Chair Yoga is for everyone but especially for those who find it difficult to: move up & down from the floor, to sit on the floor for movement & transition to & from yoga postures.

Yoga is inclusive & Chair yoga helps to support this, it is suitable for everybody from those new to yoga practice, those experiencing limitations in mobility or flexibility to those simply wishing to focus on a gentle, supported practice.

In this practice, postures are performed while seated and/or standing with the support of a chair.  The second part of the class is down lying on the floor fully supported.

Chair yoga has many benefits including: increased flexibility, muscle strength and tone & energy & vitality. It improves cardiovascular and circulatory health.

Breathing techniques focus the mind & bring the practice fully & presently into the moment.

The Joy of Yoga

A specialised class, suitable for those with previous yoga practice or a interest/curiosity to go deeper into the building blocks of Yoga: Asanas (postures), Pranayama (breath work), Mantra, meditation & into themselves!

This Asana part of the class is a mix of the postures on the first 2 levels of Iyengar Yoga exams, which includes active & restorative postures, along with mantra & pranayama/breath work practices.

I have put together this class to support & encourage confidence in self/home practice or to help to sow the seeds for home practice when the time feels right, doing so by learning yoga postures in a safe way & with confidence.

I have 15 years of practice followed by 8 years experience of teaching & continue to learn from inspiring & experienced teachers, teachers from around the world to add some spice to what I teach & learn. I spent 2 years teaching in a healing centre in the amazon jungle where I practiced with & learnt from a plethora of knowledgable openminded teachers from around the world wherein my teaching style expanding to include movement in dance, deep enquiry work, breath work & movement practices to with release trauma from the body, especially from childhood.

I am excited to share my love of the joy & art of yoga with you in this class, from my Iyengar beginnings to an explosion of intuitive learning.

Gentle/Therapeutic Yoga

This Gentle/Therapeutic class is a mix of gentle yoga postures, breath work & meditation. The depth of my Iyengar Yoga, Restorative Yoga & Yoga Therapy training gives me the knowledge & experience to go deeply into this gentle/therapeutic class practice.  The class also includes: gentle yoga postures, yin, somatics, breath work & mediation.  As an Acupuncturist I often use acupressure points & ear seed acupuncture points to solidify the practice.
This Yoga class is tailor made to suit the needs of the participants. Suitable for anyone who wishes to slow down their yoga practice or for those who have physical limitations.
Limited Class number to provide essential attention & adjustments.

Restorative Yoga & Deep Relaxation with Breath Work & Meditation

Restorative Yoga, pranayama/breathing, meditation techniques & visualisations.
Restorative Yoga is a regenerative healing method that reduces stress through the use of supported yoga postures, breathing and guided meditative & healing sounds. Learn to access deep relaxation and calm the nervous system, supporting overall health, mental and physical well-being.

In this session I bring together my extensive knowledge & experience of working with the body in Restorative Yoga Practice along with various Breath Work & meditation practices.  I began my study of meditation in South East Asia & Nepal with Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness Meditation, Vipassana Meditation & the Buddhist practices including: the of the mindfulness of breathing & loving kindness meditation.

This class involves just a handful of yoga postures done with the support of bolsters, blocks, blankets & pillows, all used to make the postures more comfortable & to help the body to stay comfortably in the postures for longer.

Acupuncture & Yoga Workshops

These workshops are themed, an example is: “Working into the hips to remove emotional blockages’
These Workshops are a blend of Acupuncture, Yoga postures, Breath work, sound & voice work to help us flow through life with more ease.
I have reduced the amount of people in these Workshops to provide more individual attention.

One-to-one Yoga Sessions

One-to-one sessions are suitable for anyone who prefers to practice alone with guidance or who wishes to learn yoga asanas in a safe & anatomical way.  One of the main advantages of training in the Iyengar method was in learning to teach in a way so that all postures are assessable through the use of supports such as; blocks, bricks, bolsters, belts & weights.
I often combines with Acupuncture needles as we wind-down the movement practice.
One-to-one classes allow the class to be tailor made for the individual.
