Hatha Yoga Classes for 2023 which offer you support in this fast paced, changing world we are living in.
I practice Yoga to help me move freely and with lightness, finding the effortlessness in the effort . Feeling the aliveness within me that connects the mind and body. This way of practicing is very grounding and liberating. It is useful for men and women over 45 who notice a change in their body, in that, they can no longer move with the same ease and effortlessness. The menopause can have a massive change on the body and mind for women. Likewise, men also experience hormonal changes at this stage of life.
As you move through the decades it becomes noticeable how flexibility and agility decrease in the body as we develop bad postural habits and ways of walking, sitting and standing. Going to the gym or running may not necessarily be beneficial for your body type as building more muscle on already tight and tense muscles will not improve your flexibility or ability to move with more ease and flow. It may even increase your risk of injury if you don’t include a practice like Yoga into your routine to create more muscle extension. With a regular Yoga practice you can improve your posture, balance, coordination and way of moving.
I am currently doing a Teacher Training with Peter Appel practicing movement that correlates with our ancestral heritage. How did we move from water to land and from short legs to long legs, from 4 legs to 2 legs? These interesting movements allow you to walk, run, stand, sit, walk up and down stairs and move during your everyday life with more ease and efficiency. As, after all, these patterns of movement are already embedded in our cells and memory so all we have to do is relearn them. Moving with ease and flow as you get older is what is most important, isn’t it?
Practicing for 25 years and teaching for nearly 20, I continually update my own practice so that I can bring the best and latest Hatha Yoga practices directly to you. I can offer you a wealth of experience. Many people come to Yoga because of bad health or injury I can offer you the professional guidance you need to practice safely as a qualified Yoga Therapist.
Offering you ‘a space’ in your life to practice selfcare, to strengthen, move, heal, and calm your body and mind. Yoga and Mindfulness give you the skills to cope with everyday living, that make your life easier, happier and more fulfilling on and off the mat. As a Mindfulness Coach and facilitator, I teach Yoga with a body/mind connect approach.
I don’t use a box of tools apart from a mat and blanket, I use what is already there thanks to my ancestors who can still teach me how to move effectively once I relearn that information, which is what I can offer you. It is fun, life changing, strength building, empowering and helps you see and appreciate your body from a different perspective.
