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 understanding of the movement, breath and safe practice for your unique body!

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

Yoga and the neuroscience connection, and the significance of slowing our practice down.

When we slow down, there is space to pay attention to the relationships between mind and body, breath and body, and breath and mind. This calms and balances the nervous system, which in turn improves the immune system response and gives you a deep sense of well-being.

I have a very deep understanding of what a stiff body feels like! After years of weight training my body was very inflexible. I have studied around the world, engaging the most experienced teachers to ensure I bring the very best to you, safely, pain free, results that ripple well beyond the mat!

You can double your flexibility in 30 days, by practicing some very specific poses for just 15 mins per day. The key is the breath ratio and relaxing fully into the pose in a very different way.

I show you how to get your mind and body working with you and for you.

Areas of the brain responsible for appropriate cognition are enhanced with slow yoga practice. Balance, strength and posture become amazing!

So our practice becomes a ritual where we don’t just strengthen our physical selves,….. through kindness to self in a focussed slow yoga, allowing time for the body and mind to engage the nervous system. We understand and experience the significance of mental and emotional clarity.

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.

If you have had joint replacements, fused spine, aching joints and general tension – I assure you I am qualified to teach you. With one on one tailored yoga to balance your body, you are guaranteed success.

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 flexibility 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, consciousness and connecting to your highest self. In turn this allows us to manage our lives well and connect meaningfully with others.

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

Qi gong

Meditation in motion. The art of effortless power.

Research shows that Qi Gong can lower blood pressure, release stress and all physical pain when practised daily.

Qi is the body’s life force energy. There is a saying in Qi Gong ‘Flowing water does not stagnate’….and the same is true for the body’s energy.

When we keep this internal life force energy circulating, inner balance and relaxation happen naturally. Stress contracts the energy system, which in turn constricts the blood vessels. When we relax the vessels dilate and the Qi flows.

Be you own best research, try it for yourself and witness the wonderful results of this ancient practice.
