I teach groups, couples and individuals. Classes are held in our beautiful little yoga shala, or on the jetty on the River Thames, near Chertsey, Surrey. It’s a fabulously peaceful setting, ideal for promoting well-being and relaxation.
I keep groups small, with a maximum of 8 people, so that there is plenty of time for me to really support each person. I also offer private sessions if people want me to travel to their own home.
There are also regular half and full-day workshops, when the wonderful world of yoga can be explored in more depth.
This is the amazing practice of ‘active relaxation’! We spend a lot of time in our modern busy and stressed lives in a state of hyper-vigilism, and can find it so hard to allow the body and mind to settle.
Restorative Yoga gives us the time and gentle space to re-connect and find balance, in a slow sequence of deeply nourishing and nurturing supported poses. There is no stretching or ‘pushing’ the body. Instead, the body is gently put in comfortable positions, with soft and supporting props like cushions, bolsters and blankets, and the attention is gently directed towards the breath. I know it’s right when I hear the ‘Aaaaaah’ as someone sinks into the pose! In this way, the body is able to ‘let go’ of physical tension, and release into the props. It is deeply relaxing, and truly restorative.
If you are wanting to explore how to nourish and nurture your body, mind and spirit, and to learn simple, accessible ways to incorporate this profound experience into your everyday life, then contact me for details about classes and workshops.
