I teach yoga postures which 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 of unnecessary tension rather than using effort or force. If we introduce tension into our postures then we are actually practicing being stressed and this is not something we usually need more of in our lives! The classes also include breathing practices to encourage healthy breathing in everyday life, Yoga Nidra deep relaxation and mindfulness meditation techniques.
At the moment, all classes are in small groups, live online and available as recordings with video demonstrations, so you can do them in your own time as well as or instead of live online with me.
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! You practice quietly in your own space whilst I am watching the screen, checking you have understood my verbal instructions. You only need to look at the screen for the occasional demonstration of a new practice.
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

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.”
