What to expect...
In all of my classes I act as a guide and you take full control of what your body would like to do, it's your practice and your body, you know your body better than anyone else ever could. I focus on self-love and compassion towards ourselves, there is no judgement, no expectations, all I ask is that you find what feels good, follow your curiosity and above all have fun - we'll laugh, smile and not take ourselves too seriously.
I offer a playful variation of vinyasa starting with a mindful meditation to set an intention for our practise ahead. This gives us space to check in with how we feel in the current moment and respond to what the body and mind are in need of.
We then move gently, focusing on sensations in the body and begin to find a flow. This will allow us to become completely present moving as one with our breath and body, finding curiosity, support and laughter. We will end the class by slowing the movements back down, tapping into our nervous system and finding peace in stillness whilst inviting all our senses to the present moment and dropping into a state of bliss and gratitude.
The definition of restorative yoga is the use of props to create positions of ease and comfort that facilitate relaxation and health. In this class you can expect to get so comfortable that you might even have a snooze! We will hold a few well selected positions, remembering that this is about opening our body's not stretching. And end our session with a deep relaxation meditation. There is such a need for active rest in our high pressure world that's filled with constant stimulation, this will leave you feeling completely brand new, rejuvenated and ready for a good nights sleep.
We find a gentle Sunday morning wiggle, taking a bit longer to wake up the body before we get moving and flowing. We will focus on all areas of the body, to ring out any stress or tension so that you can float through the rest of your day!I will be heading to the beach after our class, so if you bring your swimming costume along and fancy a dip with me, it would be lovely to have some company!
This is a gentle form of yoga that can be done whilst sitting on a chair. We will start our session with a guided meditation, focusing on breath work to calm our nervous system. Once we feel calm and grounded we will then enjoy some gentle movements seated on the chair, beginning to mobilise our spine and hips. with the chair there it offers us great support as we find some standing postures, play with our balance and some delicious stretches. This type of yoga is great for anyone who don't feel comfortable sitting or moving around on the floor, has a desk job and wants to learn poses that they can do throughout there working day or people with injuries who need longer to recover but wish to find gentle wiggles on the chair.
This is designed for those who are completely new to yoga or if you used to practise yoga and want to ease yourself back in. Just like in all my other classes, you don't have to be able to touch your toes to join in, In this class we spend more time breaking down the postures and move slower with more intention to build strength and improve our flexibility over time with no expectations. By attending this class, over time you will gain confidence and an understanding of your body to be able to join in with the vinyasa classes with greater knowledge on the fundamentals. I hope that this class will inspire you to try different styles of yoga that i offer and start to dip your toes into meditation and breathwork and get excited to experience new wellness practices.
