In this Gentle Yoga class we work to carefully stretch, strengthen and relax the body with simple and beautiful asana (physical posture) sequences. We also work with the breath to calm the body and mind and always end with a long and delicious relaxation. These classes are for complete beginners or if you’re feeling a bit creaky and rusty and want a soothing practice.
I first encountered yoga when I was a stressed 15 year old and my grandmother showed me a sequence of asanas (physical postures) to help focus and calm my mind. I continued to practise on an off, and in the last 10 years began to take it more seriously, establishing a regular practice. In 2014 I took this further by completing a British Wheel Foundation Course in preparation for teacher training on the British Wheel Teaching Diploma. I am now qualified as a Yoga Teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga (accounting for 500 hours of training). Teaching students of all ages and levels of experience has transformed my own relationship to yoga and confirmed this is what I most love doing!
