At first, I started yoga as exercise and a new interest. It soon became something to never give up. It has been a part of my life for many years and I've learned so much about the different facets of yoga and experienced and explored a range of yoga styles.
I use a blended approach to my teaching. I blend the styles of yoga that contribute to a sense of strength and calm, a sense of exploring movement and feeling into body responses. This means that you will experience movement and postures, tailored to the class theme - drawn from the traditions of Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga and Somatic Yoga. Each class includes prompts, cues and demonstrations to help you.
Each style carries therapeutic benefits. You can focus into the transitions between postures in Hatha Yoga, the awareness of your breathing and finding strength in held postures. In Yin, you hold seated and lying down shapes that ease into your body's deeper tissues. In Somatic movement, you can draw your attention inwards to observe and respond to your body's needs and responses, slowly exploring the shapes made and the potential to deepen or draw away.
It's a privilege to share yoga, via in-studio classes, classes in community halls and via Zoom. I tailor classes to give each person a really positive experience and love sensing the relaxation and sense of completion as we close a class.
