Yoga is for every body for all seasons of life.

WEEKLY and DAILY - YOGA WELLNESS COURSES


Commiting to a course of 75 minute long classes regularly and consitently builds results.  Group sessions are proven to be more effective than a solitary practice. 

Yoga is an ideal intervention if you have stiff joints, are feeling 'lack lustre'' sleeping poorly and your metablism is out of sorts.

Classes reinforce the foundations of careful and safe aligned movement and breathing. 

Students are signed posted to assess their current capability for themselves and work honestly within this range of movement.

Care is given to understanding how to bear weight correctly through the hands and feet.  Expect to see special 'foot treatment' used in every class.  We encourage responsive feet because this aids balance and nurtures healthy joints and and supportive spine.  By rolling each foot over a small physio ball for a mini myofascial self-massage in the warm-up we keep supple and strong.  Simple but satisfying standing and floor poses or 'asanas' such as twists, gentle forward, back and sidebends are mixed with short flowing sequences.  The yoga 'nidra' or relaxation at the close every of class is part of embedding the practice and leaves you feeling nicely supple, stretched and revived.

Micro retreats - Sunday Yoga


A more introspective and quiet session with an extended relaxation element.  Restorative yoga is an effective therapeutic remedy for those coping with dis-ease, sleep deprivation, anxiety or the stresses and strain of a modern life.  In other words suitable for everyone.  Restorative yoga soothes the body and carefully coaxes us towards stillness in order that we can appreciate how to become less hectic.  A class with few poses, but huge impact. Particular attention is paid to breathing and passive stretching.  You will be supported comfortably in each of the prone, supine or seated poses for aproximately 5-8 minutes.  There are few, if any standing poses in this class.  It is particularly recommended for asthma relief, insomnia, anxiety and low mood, IBS and other metabolic imbalances.

endure what cannot be cured' BKS Iyengar

YOGA FROM A CHAIR

Seated Yoga to strengthen your body and build robust mobility


75 minute classes in and around a chair !  This class is particulary dear to my heart addressing the impacts of time and gravity on the body in a fun and friendly atmosphere. Sitting down... and getting up again will never be the same again.


Discover how working with chairs is no easy option. Using a chair with a firm seat is an ideal place from which to explore movement, posture, breathing, balance and co-ordination. Work at your own pace to access simple yet hightly effective movement sequences.


Practical tips on why and where sedentary our posture.  Actionable steps you can take to include in the daily life : whilst crafting or at a workbench, in the car, in the garden, eating a meal, on the computer, in virtual classroom or while you watch TV!


This class uses mats, props (improvised or bought), chairs and a gentle sense of humour.
