I have been interested in yoga and attending classes almost continuously for over twenty years.
After giving up work to bring up my two children, I was attracted to a British Wheel of Yoga Foundation course, which I thought would be something interesting to do for a few months, while I was deciding what I wanted to do next. I have never looked back! I went straight on to a BWY Diploma course and have been teaching and learning ever since.
After teaching adult classes for two years I trained in Family yoga and began running Mother and Baby yoga classes alongside my adult classes.
I teach a style of yoga which is slow and precise with attention to correct postural alignment and breathing. Classes are relatively small and each student receives personal attention to their needs. I believe that there is something in yoga for everyone and that all postures can be adapted to suit individual needs. Physical condition, age, body shape, previous experience, are no barriers to an effective yoga practice.
I hope that students will learn that Yoga is much more than a weekly exercise class and that the techniques and attitudes we learn on the mat can be applied to all aspects of our lives.
Mother and Baby yoga:
These classes are primarily a friendly, relaxed, supportive space in which mothers and babies can spend quality time together.
Mums will learn gentle but effective postnatal yoga exercises. They will find a relaxed way of being with their baby and have a chance to meet and talk with other mums.
For the babies there are rhymes and songs with gentle movements which can improve coordination and physical development, stimulate digestive processes and help with sleep problems.
Mums and babies will also learn fun exercises they can do together and every session ends with a guided relaxation to leave mums and babies feeling calm and re-energised.
