1:1 TAILORED YOGA THERAPY & mEDITATION
Private classes can be offered on a once off basis or as a regular class. Offering those who do not have the ability to come to a group class or wish to embark on their Yoga discovery in a private way, an opportunity to do so and a number of classes can be arranged to suit individual needs and objectives.
As a qualified Yoga Therapist offering Yoga for therapeutic purposes I can tailor a programme for specific physical issues and/or support you as part of a general rehabilitation programme designed by your GP or physiotherapist. I am very knowledgeable about anatomy and movement principles . My expertise tends to be in the following areas:
- Personal Yoga for managing stress
- Personal Yoga for good health and posture alignment
- Personal Yoga for pregnancy, birth and postnatal (I have extensive post graduate training in Yoga for pregnancy birth and beyond)
Contentment is here and isn’t it great
Contentment is the sunshine when I awake
The fresh air, green grass, a beautiful lake
The laughter in a small child ‘s voice
Sportsmanship and collective groups as they rejoice
The smile on a loved ones face
The smile on anyone’s face – lighting up their eyes
The hugs and kisses of hello, the hugs and kisses of goodbyes
The ocean, the waves, the gulls on the breeze
My cat as she meows oh food, lots of love yes please
Yes please, more love always
Laughter and chocolate, movement with grace
Slowing down and down to a snail’s pace
Running around doing things hectic and fun
Being alive, in the rain, snow or sun
Enjoying now, reflecting the past
Opposites unite, bringing harmony at last
Loving and giving are good things to be
Show your compassion and you’ll be amazed to see
Just how the world will then reciprocate
Your life well lived, loved and fulfilled
Contentment is here and isn’t it great
Do I need to have done Yoga before?
The online classes are suitable for different levels of experience from beginner to more experienced but are not recommended for complete beginners, some knowledge of Yoga postures and breathing, however ‘rusty’ or little, is needed. If you have not practised with me before please get in touch prior to booking. If you have not done Yoga before please contact me and we can discuss the most suitable class or another teacher/class
Yoga Nidra classes and meditation is open to everyone
What to tell us
If you are booking a course you are required to fill out health/medical information when booking. However, if you are trying a class or are a drop-in student please inform your teacher if you suffer from very high blood pressure, heart disease, retinal problems, epilepsy, have a joint replacement or recently undergone any major surgery, it is always wise to consult your doctor prior to beginning a Yoga programme. If you are menstruating heavily it is recommended that you avoid inverted postures, please refer to your teacher.
What to bring- Yoga equipment and alternatives
A Yoga mat is a good starting point. We have compiled a list of alternatives to regular Yoga props, if you don’t have any, here.
For Yoga Nidra it is a good idea to have a bolster or bolster alternative, a blanket or another suitable covering, support for your head. For meditation please have something to sit on to remain comfortable and relaxed
What to wear?
Wear loose fitting, easy-to-move-and-stretch in clothes. Just like you would in a venue. Also something warm for relaxation time i.e. socks and a fleece. I recommend you wear “layers”!
When to eat?
Avoid a heavy meal prior to Yoga practice and do not eat anything for at least one to two hours prior to practice. If this is not practical (especially in the case of pregnant women) please try and eat only something light- only a small amount of food that is easily digestible
When to arrive?
Arrive in good time for your class, but no more than 10 minutes before the start. If you arrive more than 15 minutes late for your class, we may be unable to let you in as the waiting room function may be on
Listen to your own body-don’t force yourself into any of the postures or force your breath-relax and enjoy.
If you find that you cannot attend a class that you have booked, it is helpful if we know in advance that you are not coming so please let us know.
