Yoga

Yoga is a way to uncover and experience ourselves and our truth more deeply.

There are many definitions of the word yoga - ‘to yoke’ or ‘to unite’ or ‘to move into stillness’. Essentially, it is the practice of connecting the body, breath and mind to bring us back into an embodied state of being.

Why yoga?

Yoga brings together specific body, breath and mind practices to support us in deepening our awareness and living a more embodied and mindful life.  We come to our yoga mats to explore ourselves, our inner landscape of thoughts and emotions and all the parts of ourselves we may be hiding from. By bringing these pieces into the light we gain a deeper understanding of ourselves and our place in the world.  Through yoga and this place of embodied awareness we are better able to notice and be with the fluctuating nature of emotions and sensations which is immensely helpful when navigating challenging periods in life. It brings grace and presence into our daily lives.

Who is it for?

My mission is to create a safe and inspiring space for you to connect deeply with how magnificent you are. Wherever you are on your yoga journey I'm here to support you!

 

I’m interested in what moves you, your exploration of your inner landscape of sensations, so much more than the shapes you can make.

Empowering

I seek to offer an inclusive, empowering and nurturing environment where my guidance and offerings to you are always an invitation. Yoga is about listening and receiving the deep wisdom within and around us so my classes offer the freedom to feel into these ever shifting mental, physical and emotional states. I am always respectful of your capacity and I celebrate and honour your journey.
 

During practices I deeply encourage you to tune into your own body with curiosity and compassion to explore what YOU need, right in that moment, helping you build more autonomy, deeper understanding and trust in yourself. You learn how to create a sense of safety within yourself and trust the flow of life moving through you. Movement then becomes a moving meditation with explorative play, it becomes joyful and can take you into states of bliss.

What style do i teach?

I have a wonderful toolbox of practices and different styles of yoga to support you in restoring balance in your system. I have experience in teaching the following styles of yoga: hatha, vinyasa flow, pregnancy yoga, pre/post natal, womb yoga, restorative, yin, meditation, yoga nidra, pranayama. Vinyasa flow forms a large part of my weekly group asana (physical postures) classes. Vinyasa flow is a strong grounded flowing yoga style with synchronised breath to bring about a fluid and graceful yet dynamic practice. It promotes balance; a balance of strength and flexibility, lightness and heaviness, movement and stillness.

Focusing on whole body awareness this practice acts as a conduit for deeper self exploration

and expression. The integration of breath and movement sets your mind free and your practice then deepens into a meditation in action. It is profound and beautiful and encourages a greater sense of health, peace and expansiveness.

 

Whilst flowing sequences are very present in my teaching style, the softer more grounded  opening poses of yin and restorative yoga are also weaved in to encourage embodied presence, restoration and surrender. Meditation or Yoga Nidra also forms part of each yoga class.

“The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a
deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you

love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door.
If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.”
― Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Women Who Run With the Wolves
