I can help you to build a realistic programme of yoga and meditation into your life.
I teach Yoga Nidra deep relaxation, breathing practices, mindfulness meditation techniques and yoga postures. The yoga postures are sensible movements to encourage free and easy movement in daily life. My approach is to work mindfully and on a neurological level and so we focus on releasing and letting go rather than using effort or force.
You can come to any or all of my live online classes and / or use the audio and video recordings as well.
Online yoga has turned out to be surprisingly successful as a way of accessing yoga and meditation more easily. Many of us have come to really enjoy not needing to travel whilst still maintaining a connection by meeting and practising together online; and for this I am really grateful! (For any of you suffering from too much time online, please be assured that in my yoga classes you do not have to watch the screen all the time! I teach by detailed verbal instructions and only occasionally need to demonstrate. It is my job to watch you all and check you have understood. I simply reword the instructions until everyone seems clear what they are doing.)
The online classes also mean that people can join us from anywhere in the world (as long as the time works). Most of my students are in Sheffield but more people are joining us from across the UK and further afield.
There are classes for all levels of fitness and experience and there are also dedicated classes and workshops suitable for ME, Chronic Fatigue, fatigue related Long Covid, recovery after hip operations, chronic pain, bad backs, shoulders and knees, anxiety and stress, and to support those living with cancer or a chronic disease.
Have a look through this website for more information and please feel free to email, Whatsapp or call me to chat about what you are looking for. It is often easier to talk things through so please feel free to call.
About the yoga
Sensible postures to support functional movement in daily life.
Yoga not as an exercise but to: develop awareness; loose tension; tune in to the neuromuscular system and map better movement and breathing patterns on the brain.
Yoga for all levels: from complete beginners to those with years of experience; from people living with chronic pain to the extremely fit.
Breath awareness (pranayama), yoga nidra (deep relaxation) and classical Indian mindfulness
What students say about the online classes
“Just to let you know I have done the first lesson and enjoyed it – even the noisy rain! It was like soothing balm in the most bizarre of times.”
“Many thanks for the classes, they’re great.”
“Thank you so much for these on-line sessions – just about to do the second one now. I found it so useful last week . It’s a slightly strange experience doing it alone in my front room but still lovely.”
“Thank you again for the wonderful on line classes. Despite not being as busy as usual, it’s still such a boost to stop for a while and have a class.”
“Thank you for all the work you’ve put into recording the online lessons,
it is a great help and I would be very sorry to have to miss the classes
for several months until lockdown can be eased.”
“Thanks. It’s really great having all this.”
