My vinyasa flow class is suited for beginners to intermediate. I like to keep my vinyasa playful and relaxed and give options to challenge yourself if you want to take it up a level. We start with a breath awareness exercise where we work on the foundations of the practice using mindfulness and grounding techniques followed by a gentle warm up leading into a flow sequence and ending with relaxation. I aim for my students to leave energised but with a calm and clear mind.
My Hatha class is suited for all levels, the flow is soft and gentle preparing the body for deeper relaxation. We work through a variety of yoga postures designed to lengthen the spine, strengthen the core, correct alignment throughout the body and most importantly to quiet the mind. We end the practice with the use of bolsters, blankets and eye pillows for the ultimate peaceful savasana. I aim for my students to leave this class feeling well-balanced, relaxed and calm.

Yoga Nidra deeply relaxes your body whilst feeling like you have fallen asleep but still being fully aware of what is happening around you. “Yoga” is to bring consciousness and awareness to all parts of your life making it whole. “Nidra” means sleep.
A gong bath is a sound immersion in which you are bathed in the sound of the gong. The gong has been used since antiquity as a powerful sound healer that permeates every cell of the body, deeply nourishes the parasympathetic nervous system and permits healing that is beyond the conscious mind of ego, thought and form. In a gong bath you simply lie down, warm and comfortable and let the sound waves wash over you for a profound unique experience.
No experience necessary. All welcome.
ASHTANGA VINYASA FLOW
This is a moving, morning flow, waking your body up gently stretching your way into Saturday. A gentle slow flow creating warmth in the body, then moving into deeper postures for a hold of 5 breaths, helping you explore the connection to your body, mind and mat.
MINDFUL HATHA YOGA
In each class we work with movements of the body and the breath with periods of relaxation at the beginning and the end.
We focus our minds on how we feel rather than how we look and become present and attentive to the physical sensations of the body and the breath and be guided by these sensations rather than our minds. When we take away the notion of achieving, we begin to release and soften. We undo what is in the way of natural movement of the body along with the breath. We begin to notice a sense of wholeness which works from deep within re-establishing our inner-balance of stability with ease.
This beautiful class is open to all levels of students.
