Classes & Workshops

I have been studying and attending my own yoga classes for years and I have just recently started teaching since I graduated with my 200 hour Yoga and Spiritual development teacher training in the study of classical Yoga Philosophy and traditional Hatha Yoga Practice certification this year 2019. I trained in Bristol and Italy with the Shanti Centre Training School taught by my main teacher Stephanie Shanti Bosanko. My training and experience is from an in depth study of traditional Sivananda yoga which is a more slower -paced style, really focusing on meditation, breathwork and spirituality. The style is based on the five branches of yoga philosophy ; Proper breath, proper relaxation/ meditation, proper diet, positive thinking and proper exercise. My training and experience also incorporates kundalini, restorative, integral and vinyasa yoga. I am currently also working towards my Yin Yoga Teacher Certificate. I love all that yoga has to offer us. Particularly the Yoga Philosophy and Spirituality elements that really are a key fundamental part of learning true yoga. I love to theme and weave the philosophy and teachings into my sessions, making it accessible yoga, using blocks, straps and props to enhance your experience in the moment.
I teach with a very humanist, open, warming and emphatic approach, allowing my intuition to guide me and read my students and their needs throughout the classes. My knowledge, experience and wisdom flows into my sessions and I like my students to allow themselves to self explore what feels right for them in the present moment, not forcing, not pushing but tuning in and listening to your body, this is a really important part of my teaching approach and that students can feel comfortable and at ease and able to be themselves.
My message of yoga is of union, connection and sharing the importance of self care. It is important that we take time to nourish our mind and body with mindfulness and conscious awareness and if there is any aim, its aim of alignment with living your best self.
Throughout my sessions we will explore yoga on and off the mat and what that means to you. My classes are a path of self discovery, self realization, journeying through you to find your inner purpose and true self, to bring mind and body balance.
Yoga gives the gift of a calm mind and peace, even in the midst of chaos, by teaching you to let go and bring awareness to every moment.
Mind-body integration means establishing a healthy dialogue between your thoughts and your cells. Yoga is a powerful practice that enhances your mind-body integration. Through conscious breathing, movement, and attention to the physical postures, you cultivate a state of body-centered restful awareness, bringing harmony to the physical, mental and emotional body.

Chakra Yin Yoga & Meditation

Mondays 6.00pm – 7.30pm- Finishes 9th December | The Flamingo Centre

There are thousands of chakras on your body and in your energy field, but most people are familiar with the 7 main chakras that stem from your sacrum to the top of your head.

The 7 Chakras are:

Root chakra (Muladhara)
Navel chakra (Swadhisthana)
Solar plexus chakra (Manipura)
Heart chakra (Anahata)
Throat chakra (Vishuddha)
Third eye chakra (Ajna)
Crown chakra (Sahasrara)

Each chakra is like a spinning wheel of energy that represents a different element of life and being. When all 7 chakras are in balance, you will feel vital, safe, inspired, and tuned in to your natural potential. If your chakras are out of balance, it can manifest in various ways depending on which energy center needs attention. Balancing and aligning your chakras should be a daily practice, as each day brings new challenges and opportunities for growth.

Working with the chakras can be very fun and relaxing, and it can bring a new sense of purpose to your goals, emotionally healing, relationships, visions, and dreams. One of the best ways to work with the chakras is through gentle yin yoga, meditation, and pranayama.
These classes are a longer 90 minute session to really nurture your mind body and soul with the bliss of yin yoga sequences tailored to help balance and align your chakras followed my meditation.

Drop in classes are £12 per session.
Or you can book a block of 6 (to use within 2 months) for £65

Yin & Restore Yoga

Every Wednesday 7.15-8.15pm- Finishes 4th December | Lincombe Barn

Yin yoga stretches and targets both the deep connective tissues between the muscles, and the fascia throughout the body. The aim is to increase circulation in the joints and improve flexibility as the poses stretch and exercise the bone and joint areas. It also helps us to regulate the body’s flow of energy

Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. … During the long holds of restorative yoga, however, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It’s a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body.

This is a mixed class of Yin Yoga and Restorative.
There are no standing postures, they are all floor poses.

I recommend doing both Hatha form for strengthening and tone which i run at 6-7pm and Yin/ Restore so your body receives the rejuvenating benefits out of both styles.

Drop in 8, or Book a block of 6 for £40
Limited to 6 Spaces Only.

To book on please contact me.

Hatha Yoga - Mens Class

Every Tuesday 8th October- Finishes 3rd December | Lyde Green Community Centre

If you’re a guy, it’s easy to find yoga intimidating. This feeling is understandable. As a gender, there’s a cultural push to make us work out hard, compete, and do sports that tighten us up instead of loosen us up.
I’m going to make your entrance into yoga and your body quick and transformative!

Developing flexibility is exactly the reason you go to yoga. It’s a practice that you build into. You didn’t start bench-pressing 300 pounds the first time you went to the gym, and I’m sure you didn’t start with the excuse, “I’m not strong enough.”

Yoga improves muscle length and endurance of muscle tissue, while increasing joint mobility.
Yoga gives you a chance to unplug and withdraw from the daily grind and endless flurry of texts, emails, phone calls, and obligations.
Yoga allows you a mental and physical detox by employing breathing (pranayama) techniques that are known for their relaxation effects.

Yoga also jumpstarts your metabolism and releases healthy hormones, while balancing out your cortisol levels and in turn helps to burn unwanted fat to be turned into energy. Think of it as being green for your body.

Yoga employs multiple postures that challenge single leg balance, arm balance, bending forward with a split leg stance. Yoga balances muscular connections in the body and allows for increase space and mobility in the body to create less joint compression and increased range of motion.

By utilizing activities such as yoga, we allow ourselves to move more intelligently, think more clearly, and live life to the fullest.

My classes are suited to beginners.

Limited to 10 Spaces only.
£8 per session or buy a block of 6 sessions for £40.

To book please contact me as well with any questions you may have.

An Evening of Self Care & Connection - Journeying through the chakras

Friday 14th November | 7.45-9.45pm –Page Park Community Centre

How often do you feel like you are being swept along by life and have no sense of grounding?

Do you sometimes feel like you lack the courage to put yourself first and weeks go by with no time for you.
You feel you’ve lost your connection to your true self and you feel yourself wanting more from life?

I invite you to take some time out of your busy, digitally focused world to reset the body, mind and spirit bringing you back to a place of peace, love and equilibrium.

This is a monthly event. Starting with the Root Chakra.

Chakra (sanskrit for ‘wheel’) is an energy centre connected to our spinal columns where they host individual intelligence centres. Each chakra is connected to our emotional, physical mental and spiritual spaces.
Similar to the rainbow spectrum our chakra system is linked to seven colour frequencies. With focused practice using yoga, meditation or energy healing, we can bring these energy systems back into balance. This is also known as ‘aligning our chakras’.

During each ‘Chakra Series’ we will explore each of the seven chakras and tie it into yogic, meditation and self care. For the first workshop we start at the base of the chakra system: the root chakra.

Root Chakra:

The root chakra is the foundation and is linked to the following:

The ability to ground our physical selves
Being patient
Having the courage to do something
Our survival instincts.

Blockages around the root can cause:

Feeling out of touch
Feelings of insecurity
Lack of patience
Losing our sense of direction or focus.

In this workshop we will focus on:

Re-connecting ourselves to our foundation.
Tapping into our root chakra through our bodies’ movement (yoga)

Guided meditation to bring our minds back into focus

Taking our meditative practice into our daily lives

Using breathing techniques to invigorate our practice

Time to share and connect with others.

Work on intention setting, journalling, self care techniques, time to reflect and an mini energy healing session from me.

What you’ll need :

A blanket, cushion and yoga mat.

I will provide a journal, unless you have your own.

Nibbles and a Root Chakra Tea will be provided.

The venue is situated inside at the Page Park Community Space with a short distance from nearby parking and bus routes.

Arrival for 7.00pm for a social introduction.
The Third eye chakra is the sixth chakra.
Located on the forehead, between the eyebrows, it is the center of intuition and foresight. The function of the third eye chakra is driven by the principle of openness and imagination.
Once the third eye chakra is in harmony with the rest of the chakras, it is said that a doorway towards spiritual enlightenment is opened.
When our third eye chakra is clean and balanced, we see life with clarity and possess strong intuition, insight, self-awareness, and emotional balance.
