Welcome to my yoga site
Yoga changes your mind and body in amazing ways. When practiced regularly, it reduces stress, improves flexibility and balance and builds strength in all core muscle groups. Regular Yoga helps to fight off aches and pains, and keep you fit and healthy. It also calms the mind, enabling clearer thinking and better decision making.
Yoga is for everyone, no matter how inflexible you are or how old you are!
What to expect from my classes
All my current Yoga classes are based on Hatha Yoga, the umbrella by which all other strands of Yoga have descended. I also practise Forrest Yoga, a strong and healing type of Yoga developed by the amazing Ana Forrest. I am planning to complete teacher training to become a registered Forrest yoga teacher once COVID has been tackled. My classes are influenced by Forrest.
My classes follow a similar format, starting with some centering and breathing, or pranayama. It is really important to focus at the start of a class - to quieten the mind, slow down the heart rate and begin to feel more grounded. Classes then move through a warm up and into more active poses. Most classes include an element of Sun Salutations, although these can be quite short depending on the rest of the class content and class length. All classes finish with a relaxation, normally guided or with a visualisation.
You can expect my classes to contain a number of poses, often linked together to counteract the damage caused by modern life - to reduce stress and release tension in the neck, shoulders and hips. A perfect antidote to mobile phones, driving and sitting for long periods at a desk!
On my website, you can find out about MY CLASSES, where there is also a link to the booking system.
Currently we must add you to the booking system when you join up for the first time. Thereafter, via the mobile app or through a web browser you can see the classes and book classes up to several weeks ahead. All classes require credits, one credit per class. These can be purchased by contacting me directly. In the near future these will also be available through the booking system.
How do you get started?
All you need is a mat and the willingness to give it a go!
If you would like to have a chat about how Yoga could help you please do get in touch. I am also open to booking private one to one sessions, possibly as a starting point to build the confidence and so you feel prepared to come to a class. I can also assist with anyone with major medical or spinal injuries, where your doctor has advised Yoga as a treatment, or for any keen Yogis who want to deepen their practice.
I am just a regular guy, with over 30 years working in business who found Yoga relatively late in life, loved it and decided to become a teacher to share it. If I can do it, so can you.
