Yoga

‘I’ve been training with Jen for 18 months. I went to her having been diagnosed with arthritis in my back and hips (I’m only 42) and was in daily pain. Jen targeted areas and has really built my strength. I have no hip pain whatsoever and my back is so much better than it was. She’s a joy to work with and I can’t recommend her enough. Do it now!’ – Isla

We need to move a lot of our bodies a little, instead we seem to move a little of our bodies a lot.

Good news, you don’t need a flexible body to do Yoga, you just need a flexible mind.

Yoga is a mat based class connecting body, mind and breath.

The style of Yoga I teach is about moving your body and exploring what it can do at a pace that feels right for you.

There are many impressive and beautiful images of a form of Yoga out there in social media world and I respect the people that can perform these moves with such grace but these gymnastic moves are not something I will be teaching in my classes.

If you spend a lot of your day sitting down then you need to find something that will let your body move in the way it was designed.

You will come to class with the intention to leave  feeling calmer, grounded, free of tension, softer, at ease with yourself and the world.

Yoga for me is not about working out, but working in.

Each class will start with a few minutes meditation, followed by movement, ending with Savasana meditation (sometimes known as ‘that bit you lie down at the end’)

I personally came to Yoga sporadically over the years but much more consistently in the last 4 years and since being diagnosed with Crohn’s in March 2017 have used the practices of Yoga to aid my healing process. I now live with my condition symptom and medication free. I believe that being able to really tune in to my body, listen and respond has helped me heal.
