Yoga enables us to develop the relationship between the body and breath to create space for the mind to be still and centred. I teach a traditional form of yoga to integrate the mind, body and breath, creating a meditative practice. There is a focus on the relationship between the spine and the action of the breath. All abilities are welcome. If necessary, postures (āsana) can be adapted to enable you to experience the energy of the posture and develop the relationship between flexibility and strength.
Different yoga spaces for practice:
I am reviewing my class schedule. I will publish any changes by the end of August
Classes – Wednesday Yoga at Yanley and Early Bird Yoga: I currently teach three classes on Wednesdays and an early morning class on Friday (March – October; if there is the demand this may continue into the darker months). Classes are organised in terms where we work with a yoga related theme and a consistent practice. Classes are not differentiated; all levels of experience are welcome. Every class ends with some quiet reflection time. The longer the class, the more time there is to work with the breath and sit quietly.
Individual Yoga (Monday – Friday): Together, we work to create a home practice for you. A home practice is tailored for your own needs and can last from 20 to 40 minutes, depending on the time you have available and what you think is realistic. ‘Little and often’ is preferable to ‘a lot now and then’. Your practice will provide a consistent space in which you can build relationship with and develop your yoga. Sometimes two people book a joint lesson because they like practising together and can support each other to find a space to work in. If you are new to practice it may be that we meet every 2 – 3 weeks. If you have some experience, lessons can be more spread out, perhaps every 4, 6, or 8 weeks, for example.
These are being rested for the time being with a possible return in 2019: Morning Retreats at Yanley: A time to practice, reflect and connect. The morning is a place of sangha (community) and includes yoga practices, social time, group discussion and pranayama (seated breathing practice) & meditation. We have space to explore some yoga philosophy and how we can put it into practice.
Please contact me if you want a conversation to discuss any yoga practice spaces
