Yoga changed my life, my ability to cope with stress and my body! With remedial yoga I have become pain free and flexible.
This inspired me to become a qualified teacher, to share this gift with you.
The philosophy of yoga is to take into account our physical, mental and emotional aspects of ourselves.
Yoga will improve your balance and strength while providing flexibility and emotional wellbeing.
I offer you a blend of gentle poses right through to a vinyasa flow. Deeply invigorating and relaxing. Creating freedom of movement and fluid mobility.
I guide you to correct body alignment for safe practice and a clear understanding of the purpose of the pose. By focussing mentally on feeling the movement, we achieve powerful and safe results.
Becoming deeply aware of self through the practice and meditation will bring you to a very calm place where you have greater energy to cope with daily life with more ease.
As I guide you to breath well, you will have more oxygen flow in, and create better elimination of toxins. Most importantly, the breath allows you to move freely and powerfully in the yoga asanas (poses) and improve mental clarity.
