Each student is taught to memorise the sequence which allows one to practice and progress at one's own pace. Beginners to advanced level practice together in the same room. Beginners will start with a 45--60 minute practise and build up to a 90-120 minute practise over time.
A fun and creative class where we break down certain aspects of yoga practice in an all inclusive way, focusing on the student's experience and how to practice in a way that better supports each individual.
A slow, accessible and kind to yourself style, with emphasis on postures and breathing to improve general functionality in your daily life. This is about being kind to yourself and creating a nourishing, energising and fun practice With a mindfulness focus, using the breath and pointers towards awareness and curiosity of the embodied experience.
This deeply restful style of yoga relieves stress and allows the body and mind to deeply relax and restore. It is an excellent balance to a dynamic yoga practice or for those with hectic lives or stress related issues. It teaches the body to relax fully, whilst remaining awake and alert, a skill which can be integrated into daily life. Surprisingly it leaves one feeling energised, as well as relaxed and refreshed. I regularly practice restorative in addition to my daily ashtanga practice, if my energy is low, if I feel run down, if I'm menstruating or if I need an energy boost. I love it! I teach in the style of Judith Hanson Lasater (Relax & Renew) and have a thorough knowledge of how to use props through my studies in Iyengar.
Over the years I have taught many different types of people privately. As well as adults of all different body types (super stiff to hypermobile), I've taught beginners, injured, and advanced yoga teachers, as well as children and special needs children. I teach one-to-one in the home of the client or at my home studio. It's a great way to learn because of the detailed attention. My clients tend to be yoga teachers who need to refine their alignment and technique or busy career people or mums who don't have time to attend classes. The beauty of private yoga is that there is the scope to design a practice to suit the client, and one builds a close teacher/student relationship. It's one of my favourite ways to teach.
As taught in Mysore, India, ashtanga is a dynamic style which builds tone, strength, flexibility, and facilitates a type of emotional containment that results in feeling at peace in the mind. One moves through the set vinyasa (synchronised movement/postures with breath) sequence, using breathing (ujjayi), energy locks (bandhas) and gazing points (drishti) to cultivate focus and inner reflection, and a state of meditation in movement (tristana).
