Yoga

Why practice yoga?

Yoga is a great way to improve your strength and flexibility as well as being a great stress reliever that has numerous health benefits: 

  • boosting the immune system
  • preventing cartilage and joint breakdown
  • protecting your spine
  • improving circulation, balance and focus of attention
  • and it also makes you happier and feel more relaxed!

Hatha flow or vinyasa yoga is the combination of asanas (poses) with breath and movement.  It’s more dynamic than some yoga classes so it can feel more energetic and invigorating as well as giving the body a lovely stretch.  My yoga classes often include some mindfulness techniques and end with a short time of guided relaxation.

Yoga is a form of exercise suitable for most people but  if you have any specific conditions or injuries you’d like to discuss please get in touch and I can let you know if the class is suitable for you.

Teaching Style

My yoga classes are usually quite active whilst my teaching style is very down to earth and accepting of individual limitations.  I focus on helping students get the most out of the body they’ve got and how they are feeling on the day – improving strength, flexibility, coordination, balance as well as providing some space and time to unwind.  I love meeting new people and building friendships with students.  I am thrilled when students begin to see the different benefits yoga brings and feel very privileged to be able to share this with students.

Private Yoga

Tailored specifically to your needs and body, I offer private yoga classes, on request and subject to availability, either at your home or at my home in Walmer (see notes below).  This is perfect if you’re looking for immediate feedback on any alignment concerns, if you have  any physical limitations that make classes inaccessible or if you’re looking to work on something specific.   Please contact me if you would like to discuss this option.  This is also suitable for pre or post natal ladies.

Home visits: 75 minutes £50 (max 3 students and if space allows)

My home: 60 minutes £30 (max 4 students for Mum and Baby, 2 for vinyasa/flow yoga & 6 otherwise).
