LIVE ONLINE YOGA CLASSES

Unlike most online yoga, this class is not pre-recorded but live, which allows us all to be together in the moment  and offers you a way to be a part of something that is happening now from the comfort and safety of your home.


We will be using ‘Zoom’ to host our online classes, which is super easy and intuitive to use - my  mum even managed it! (sorry mum).  Please see below for simple guidance on getting set up with Zoom.

USER GUIDE & SETUP

Joining the Class

 

If you have booked onto a class, you will receive an email 15 minutes before the class starts, containing a link and a passcode to join the class. Please check your spam/junk folder if you do not see the email in your inbox.

When clicking the link, you will be prompted to open ZOOM on your device.

On ZOOM, you will then have the option to 'Join with Video' or ‘Join without Video’.  This is completely up to you.  You can choose to turn it on so that you can be seen by myself and others, or you can leave it off if you’d prefer to have privacy or if you do not have a webcam.

All participants will have their audio muted.  This allows everybody to play their own music at home, and minimises the chance of distracting noises and feedback being heard between devices.

Please ensure you can hear your device before the class starts.  It's recommended to test your speakers and check that your device is not on mute.

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.

Vinyasa-

 

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.

Rise and shine- 

Good morning sunshine! Taking a bit longer to wake up the body before we get moving and flowing, focusing on all areas of the body to ring out any stress or tension so that you can float through the rest of your day! Thinking about what we would like to give to the world today and what we would like to receive today.  In all of my classes I include breath work, meditation, time for slowing down and everyone's favourite, shavasana, at the end of class. There is a thread throughout all my classes of self love and acceptance in a supportive, light hearted space where you can be yourself.

Gentle start-

Life is all about balance and if you have had a busy week, this class is for you.  Sunday is our time to take it slow, to reconnect back to ourselves, to recharge our batteries and be ready to start the week with a spring in our step.  We will spend the whole class taking slower movements, fully appreciating our bodies and what they are capable of, releasing any events or thoughts from the week that are holding us back and welcoming in the new week.  Ending in shavasana with blankets and pillows and fluffy socks, fully nourished and cocooned in love.

CREATING YOUR YOGA SPACE

Take the time to set up for your online class, maybe light a few candles and some incense.

Find a quiet area in your home with plenty of space (welcome kids and pets if you prefer!)

Have everything around you that you will want to get completely comfortable ​and pop on your favourite music.

I have created some playlists below for you.

A few things that you might want nearby:

  • Blocks

  • Straps

  • Eye pillows

  • Blankets

  • Pillows

GIFT VOUCHERS

Gift vouchers are a great way to give your yoga-loving friend or relative a special present. 

Vouchers can be used on all of the Live Online Yoga Classes and public yoga classes as-well as events and retreats.

I had never tried yoga before. I always had the thought that you had to be experienced to join a class.

I joined Becky’s class during a very difficult emotional time for me and I’m so glad I did.

Becky put me at ease immediately, she is very calming and reassuring. The class was incredible, not just physically, but emotionally. It helped me balance all the negativity I had floating around and taught me to draw on the positives in my life.

It helped me to learn to be myself and to most importantly love myself.  Becky is incredible and I’m so glad I started my yoga journey with her.

Namaste
