Classes are gentle - don't expect to sweat ! Each term is normally 12 weeks long and follows a structured program of development. It is for this reason that I don't provide drop-in classes.
Each class begins with a short relaxation, followed by a pranayama practise (breathing practise) and a sequence of asana (postures), concluding with Yoga Nidra (a deep relaxation technique).
Class sizes are small.
The Beginners’ Program. This program is for those who are starting out on the path of Yoga or simply for those who prefer this level. We begin with learning to relax and to establish basic yogic practices and techniques. We discover very simple yogic techniques that can be used during our normal day. The Program is designed to discover a deeper understanding of the physical body and the breath, leading to a feeling of harmony, ease and inner well being across the head, heart and hands.
The Continuers’ Program. This program is for those who have followed the Beginners’ Program and have established the basic yogic practices. The program further guides the student gently along the yogic path. It is for those who feel ready to explore more about the workings of the head, heart and hands through slightly stronger asana and pranayama techniques. This program introduces other yogic practices and encourages practice at home and in our daily lives. In this program we are getting to know the self a little bit more, and we are building and refining the ability to be aware and to witness.
Both of these programs are gentle. At all times we are learning to be aware, to discover a sense of ease but also of exploration. Both programs are delivered to take account of any students’ ailments or weaknesses.
How to prepare for a class
Wear comfortable clothes.
Try to abstain from eating for about 2 hours before class so that you don't experience discomfort during class and you can devote your body to yoga rather than digestion.
It is important to inform your teacher of any specific needs or medical conditions so that the class can be tailored accordingly.
Mats & blankets are provided.
Feel free to bring a sleeping bag to keep extra warm !
What to bring to a class
Nothing but you and your breath ...
...and a sleeping bag if you want to be really cosy !
