Online Yoga Classes

March 20th 2020  

In light of the current situation that is affecting all of us and our ability to attend our regular yoga classes, whether as a teacher or a student, I have decided to offer online yoga tuition for the first time.  

Bookings/payments for classes are made via the app. Bookwhen. Please follow the link below to take advantage of 5 class passes and concessionary rates.

Also, vouchers are available for NHS frontline workers, and Care support assistants so please contact me if you fall into this category. You are entitled to a free class.

DISCLAIMER:

Due to the nature of these classes I will be unable to see you in the same way as I would in an actual studio class, if at all, so it is imperative that you take responsibility for your own safety whilst following along. I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOU, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELF, so if you have any doubts about your ability to join in safely, please refrain. If you have any underlying health issues, please check with your GP in advance of joining and get the all-clear.

GENERAL RULES: Er on the side of caution; if something feels too strong/intense for you…back off and take it easy. If you feel any pain, especially in your joints; come out of the pose and check that you’re doing it correctly, and if necessary skip the posture for now. No yoga pose is worth hurting yourself for. How do you know if you’re pushing yourself too hard? As a rough guide, you won’t be able to breathe correctly and as instructed.

 

ONLINE YOGA TIMETABLE:

Tuesday at 19.00 Shadow Yoga. For regular students. This class will centre on the first or second prelude. We will be refining the form by looking at both the details and the overall rhythm and flow of the movement. These sessions will also help and guide you towards the development of a self-practice.

Wednesday at 10.00 Yoga level 1-2. Less is More. A gentle session that goes into detail, rather than trying to cram as many poses as possible into the allotted time. Quality over quantity. The class focusses on hip mobility, stabilising the spine, and building leg strength, with a short mudra practice and ‘meditation’ at the end. This will infuse the rest of your day with calmness.

Wednesday at 18.00 Shadow Yoga Beginners course. Regular 4 week courses that lay the foundations of the shadow yoga system. Perfect for students new to this system, and also regular students wanting to work on the core basics of building strength and stability.

Thursday at 19.00 Shadow Yoga. For regular students. This class will centre on the first or second prelude. We will be refining the form by looking at both the details and the overall rhythm and flow of the movement. These sessions will also help and guide you towards the development of a self-practice.

Saturday at 11.00 Yoga Level 1-2  Energising Saturday afternoon yoga. This class will increase hip mobility, stabilise your spine, and build strength in your legs. As with all my classes, there is a strong focus on the quality, and direction of the flow of the breath. This strengthens the body’s store of vital essence and nurtures the energy of the ‘Kidneys’. Supporting the Kidneys is like recharging your batteries.

You will feel calm and centred, and better able to cope with day to day stress and anxiety.
