  • What is yoga?
    Yoga is an ancient practice that can be traced back more than 5000 years ago to Northern India. It was traditionally geared towards enlightenment, transcendence or spiritual awakening. Today, more and more people are practicing yoga for its health & wellbeing benefits. It can help to calm the mind and relax the body from our ever increasing, busy stressful lives, through breathing exercises, meditation and movement.
  • What are the benefits of practicing yoga?
    Although scientific research into yoga’s benefits is still somewhat preliminary, much of the evidence so far supports what us practitioners have known for millennia: Yoga is incredibly beneficial to our overall physical and mental well- being. Not only can Yoga improve overall strength, flexibility and balance, regular practice can help lower our stress hormones, body inflammation, reduce anxiety, improve sleep, as well as contributing to a healthier heart. For me though Yoga is more than a series of movements; yoga is a way of life. A way of life emphasizing what is important; humility, grace, kindness, honouring my body, breath, hope, change, stillness; The movements are the vessels that carry this belief system through every inch of my body. Taking part in a yoga class can also allow you to meet new people and encourages friendships whilst working on healing the body and mind.
  • What should I wear to a yoga class?
    Loose comfortable clothing is recommended to allow yourself to be fully immersed in the yoga experience. You should be prepared to participate in bare feet as is this the traditional way and is safer to stop feet sliding about, but non-slip socks specific for yoga can be worn if preferred.
  • Do I need to be flexible to participate?
    No. My classes are designed with everyone in mind, regardless of age, ability, or fitness levels. For many years, I feel there's been a stigma surrounding yoga of toned bodies practicing widely unachievable poses. My classes are focused on the safe movement and relaxation of the body and mind.
  • What equipment do I need to bring?
    Yoga can be practiced without any equipment or props however a yoga mat provides essential grip and comfort from potentially hard, cold floors. If needed, I carry spare yoga mats, however bringing along your own mat is encouraged for current Covid hygiene recommendations. I provide blocks, bolsters and straps in all my classes to make yoga accessible to everyone.
