Weekly Yoga Classes

The classes are based on either a Vinyasa Flow Yoga, which is a style of Hatha Yoga, or Yin Yoga, which works on releasing deeper tension in the connective tissue. The different classes aim to give you a full body workout to improve flexibility, strength and release blockages in the body. Which ever class you attend, each posture will be guided in relaxed, informative way,  helping you re-connect the mind body and spirit and bring your awareness back into the body.

But we also focus on the alignment of the pose, not to create the ‘perfect’ posture, but to find the perfect posture for you at this moment, at the place you are today…….with any tightness, stiffness and chronic injuries and restrictions. This allows me to work with you from the foundations up, and help you build strength, flexibility and relieve chronic tightness and restrictions.

As a published author of Breaking the Attention to Pain and registered Yoga Elder with the International Independent Yoga Network, which represent the highest level attained in teaching yoga, achieved through extensive training and teaching experience, I bring you a wealth of knowledge and experience to help you on your Yoga and health journey.

What is Vinyasa Yoga?

Vinyasa yoga is a fast paced aerobic based yoga, that works not just your muscles but also your heart and lungs. We work through sequences of flowing postures, at times holding them for a few rounds of breath. We also incorporate breathing techniques referred to as Pranayama, to enhance our connection to our breath. 

Vinyasa Yoga is described as a 'Moving Meditation', as we work always in harmony with the breath.

As is the case with any physical activity, the risk of injury, even serious or disabling, is always present and cannot be entirely eliminated. Yoga is not a substitute for medical attention, examination, diagnosis or treatment. Yoga is not recommended and is not safe under certain medical conditions.
