Start at the ground ... Let go and settle into stillness. Move your awareness inside ... Come home to yourself ... From this restful place we begin to move, slowly, gently, building and increasing ... Always breathing and noticing ... surprising yourself in what your body can do ... How good it can feel, to reconnect and refine your awareness, your strength, your confidence. Because after all ... no matter what we are doing, how we are moving, what we are thinking ... it's all about awareness and making a connection with ourselves. I'm here to guide you there ....

Which Class suits?
Is an energising mix of flowing vinyasa sequences, strengthening core work and standing sequences, with a balance of some quieter yin and restorative postures, breath work and relaxation.
This is a popular mid-level class that suits most people, but you need to have a bit of yoga experience to feel comfortable and enjoy it.
10.30 - 12noon Drop in Slow Flow
1 - 1.45pm Drop in Filmed class.
Is a comfortably challenging class with slow-paced posture flows, strengthening core work and long held yin poses to improve flexibility. With lots of restoratives and relaxation each week.
This class is aimed at beginners, as the pace is slower and we regularly go over the basics.

This class is a donation only 45 minute lunch time session, thats suitable for all levels. Its similar to my Slow Flow Class.
The idea with this class is to film content for my website, so there are classes you can practice at home.
There will be a camera aimed at my mat and I will be wearing a head mic. There will be lots of space in the room to practice off camera.
If you would like to see these classes online. Go to my resources page and sign up there.

There are a few things you might want to know before coming to a class...
Its best to not eat just before you practice, giving yourself about an hour between a meal and bending is a good idea.
You don't need yoga clothes, just something comfortable that stretches, without a belt and not too thick and heavy as the room can get quite warm.
You don't need a yoga mat at first, I have lots of spares. Most regulars have their own mats, because its just nice to own your own one!
A lot of people feel nervous when first joining a class, that you will be obviously 'new' and look like you don't know what you are doing. This is not the case! The class is taught in such a way that everyone is so caught up in what they are doing that nobody will be watching you. Plus each week is very different, the classes are always changing, so a lot of things are new to even my most regulars. After the first couple of weeks you will recognise most of the main 'postures' and feel confident even if you don't feel very flexible.
Yoga is not for fit flexible people. Its for everyone...but it will make you more fit and flexible eventually. You just need to give yourself at least 6 classes to start noticing a difference.
The positive changes that you can expect to receive within the first few weeks are:
Improved sleep, concentration, digestion, breathing and mood. A small improvement in your flexibility (this takes months not weeks). Feeling stronger and fitter.
