Creating the space within, physically, mentally and spiritually, that will give you a healthier and happier way of living!
Hatha Yoga classes for 2023, offering you support in this fast paced, changing world you 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 useful for men and women over 45 who notice that they no longer move with the same ease and effortlessness as they used to. The menopause can have a massive change on the body and mind in women and men who also experience hormonal changes at this age.
As you move through the decades it becomes noticeable how flexibility and agility decrease in the body as you 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, tense muscles will not improve your flexibility or the 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 muscle extension and flexibility. With a regular Yoga practice you can improve your posture, balance, coordination and ways of moving in daily life.
I am currently training (2022 – 2023) with Peter Appel practicing movements that derive from our ancestral heritage. How did we move from water to land and from short legs to long legs and 4 legs to 2 legs? I found practicing these movements allows me to walk, run, sit, walk up and down stairs and move around generally with less effort. These developmental patterns of movement that we practice in class 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 Yoga 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 since 2012.
Offering you “a space” in your life to strengthen, move, connect, 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 from a body/mind connect approach.
I don’t use a box of tools apart from a mat and blanket, I use what is already available to me. It is fun, life changing, strength building, empowering and helps you to be grateful and more thoughtful of your body now and in the future.
Come have fun and explore!!!
