Yoga

Breath, movement, relaxation - combined, creates strength and flexability of the body and mind. I am highly qualified to ensure you an enjoyable and safe jouney. 

Group classes are not always the most ideal way to be introduced to yoga. Understanding of your body and how yoga is best applied for you to see improvement is required first. The intent and correct alignment in a pose (asana) is very important and often a mystery to some after trying a group class. There is also a lot more to yoga than (asana) body shapes on the mat. Yoga goes beyond the muscles and bones focus.

The mind must be engaged in the process and an undertanding of the movement, breath and safe practice for your unique body!

There is always a smile on your face in yoga practice!

Yoga changed my whole body and perspective on life, giving me great motivation to stay with it. I have achieved for myself and many clients, a pain free body and a mind that copes with daily stresses with ease. 

Yoga is different to physical exercise. It is a journey that produces true health and vitality, that you experience for yourself and is difficult to describe.

The less flexability you have, the more benefit you will get from yoga!  Release conditions such as stress, muscle and joint pain, insomnia and indigestion - all with the right yoga for you.

Yoga means unity, conciousness and connecting to your highest self. In turn this allows us to manage our lives well and connect meaningfully with others.

I have studied in Nepal to complete a  500 hour diploma recognised by the World Yoga Alliance. 

I am able to challenge your current levels of strength, mental focus and flexability even if you have been immersed in yoga practice for a while.

I can surprise the stiffest person and the person with pain. Let me help you improve your mobility and quality of life overall with yoga therapy, tailor made for you.
