Yoga is a system of holistic practices that includes performing sequences of physical postures (asana), meditation, breathing (pranayama) and many others. The system originates in India but has been widely adopted and tweaked around the globe. That's to sum it up.
Yoga is a fantastic complement to all other physical exercises which tend to target specific muscle groups and under-exercise the rest. It is also a fantastic complement for our modern (mainly sedentary, let's be honest!) lifestyle.
Yoga facilitates our ability to restore balance, in body, in mind and in the heart. Yoga can be fast or slow, dynamic or restorative, on and off the mat, there could be music... the possibilities are endless.
And best of all: yoga is for everyone! In its essence, yoga is flexible and democratic. The practice can be tailored to anyone, regardless of their age, experience, body shape, or beliefs.
WHAT CAN YOGA DO FOR YOU?
Yoga will help you release tension and relax. Yoga will help you get clarity of thought. In other words, yoga will make you feel great.
Yoga will make you stronger and leaner. It will will make you more flexible (you really don't need to be flexible before you begin!). In other words, yoga will make you look great.
In my teaching I like to combine a bit of flow, a bit of alignment and a lot of focus on healing and balancing the effects of modern lifestyle. But most importantly, I always tailor my classes to you, my client, and what your needs are at a time. I'm there to guide you and support you no matter what stage on your path you may be. I teach regular classes, offer private sessions and am generally very happy to chat or answer your questions, yoga-related or otherwise.
I am a registered RYT 200 yoga instructor with Yoga Alliance UK. I trained in the Anusara style with Bridget Woods Kramer, Ananda Leone and Carlos Pomeda, and most recently with the radiant Leila Sadeghee. I studied Pregnancy Yoga with Nadia Narain at Triyoga and Postnatal Yoga with Birthlight. I continue learning every single day: I learn from my teachers, I learn through my own practice, but most of all, I learn from my students. A big thank you to my teachers, all of you extremely inspirational beings!
