«Atha Yogānushāsanam», Yoga is NOW! (Patanjali, Yoga Sutra I.I)
Yoga is an ancient discipline originating from India. It sets out a group of practices destined to bring an improved level of global well-being. Today there are a multitude of styles and schools according to whose guidance yoga can be practised.
In the authentic ‘hatha’ based practice I offer, I will guide you according to the following directing principles.
- A universal philosophy to apply to all spheres of life.
- Postures or ‘asana’ destined to develop and maintain your physical health.
- Breathing techniques or ‘pranayama’ to develop the quality of your breath.
- Concentration exercises to develop self-awareness, mindfulness and the practice of meditation.
What’s in it for you?
In a practice which privileges the exploration of postures and breath, but which gives an equal importance to all the other ‘branches’ of yoga, you will experience, these and other benefits.
- Quality of breath
With a reflection of all that I have learnt and continue to learn on my own yogique journey, I work with dynamic sequences that synchronise the movements of the body and breath. Equally I place an accent on well-established forms and fluid transitions.
For a development of your capacity to relax and release, and the creation of a meditative state, I am trained in the delivery of Yoga Nidra.
By guiding each person who chooses to work with me in a practice appropriate to their individual needs, desires and capacity; my overarching goal is to accompany you on your individual path to balance, joy and peace.
From my eight weekly collective classes you can choose between a more dynamic or softer energy. In the knowledge that yoga adapts itself to the person who practises, I welcome participants with a range of levels and experience to each of my classes.
I equally offer classes to individuals on a 1-2-1 or small group basis, present focus-themed workshops and teach specifically-devised programmes to specialist groups. See Workshops, Partners and Inspirations or contact me for more information.
