ABOUT THE CLASS
This class is a gentle and steady paced class suitable for absolute beginners, or anybody who wants to slow down, relax, and learn all about yoga!
We will focus on simple movement to encourage more body awareness and physical mobility, as well as look at the other fundamental aspects of yoga such as breath, meditation and philosophy. This class offers an inclusive, laid back and fun atmosphere that is perfect for complete newcomers to the practice, and will give students the tools to create and sustain a space for relaxation and serenity.
I came to yoga during university, originally giggling my way through a few wobbly classes at the gym, but eventually coming to realise how great I felt after each class. After years of daily self practice at home, I completed my Yoga Teacher Training in South India. My training was deeply grounded in the long lineage of Hatha Yoga in India, and provided me with invaluable teachings in this ancient practice. I have combined this interest in the traditional aspects of yoga with my desire to provide an accessible and relevant practice that suits the needs of the modern yoga practitioner.
I am passionate about the power of self practice, and wishes to instil within students the foundational structures they need to continue and grow their own practice. I believe that yoga has the power to bring strength and calm to our lives, both on and off the mat, and I aim to provide an inclusive and accessible space to explore our bodies and breath. My classes are upbeat, fun and designed to help you learn more about yourself and about the practice of yoga.
