Favourite Yoga pose:  Downward Facing Dog is such a great stretch for all problem areas: back, shoulders, neck and hamstrings.

Words of wisdom for clients:  Yoga isn’t about being a contortionist – you don’t even need to be flexible before you start. Also, don’t assume that Yoga will be a 'soft' option – it’s challenging but in a different way compared to other forms of exercise!

When I’m not doing Yoga:  You’ll find me drawing digital artworks on my ipad (the sketch book and pencil are so last century!) or pottering with the veg crops in my garden.

 

Want to feel more relaxed, whilst stretching your muscles, improving your balance and joint mobility? Then Hatha Yoga is for you. This wonderful traditional spiritual practice helps us to reduce stress, encourages mindfulness, and increases flexibility and strength.
All classes are gentle, suitable for beginners, and ideal for those that want to reconnect with their body. We will practice Asanas (the movements / postures) Pranayama (Yogic breathing) Meditation. We will cover some of the philosophy, Mantras (chants) and Mudras (energetic hand movements).
