Hi  Yogi!

Thank you for visiting my yoga pages.

I'm fiercely passionate about passing on the ancient gift of yoga, discovered in India over 5,000 years ago.

My 'yoga way' is not one you would see typically on Instagram, authentic  yoga is true yoga that flourishes with freedom, not perfection, rich informed content, not 'packaging', not how we 'look' but how we FEEL.

Yoga is a beautiful past time, in fact a way of nourishing your time, using asana yoga breathwork and strengthening to make nourishing and invigorating shapes with our body, and enabling ourselves to 'come back' to ourselves, on and off our mat.

Its strengthening,  purifying, invigorating, peaceful, incredible for mental health in a world that sometimes can lead us to rush around on 'auto pilot'. 

We find our ground, we tap in to the true essence of ourselves, finding authenticity and truth of body and mind.

If you want to improve body strength, move towards regulating the nervous system into rest and digest mode, find calm and peace, these are the classes for you.

The  Beginners classes are gentle and supportive, the vinyasa flow strenghtening classes ( up to advanced level) are energetic and get the blood flow going! I work our regularly and know the importance of strength work and balance in keeping our body supple, our muscles strong and our joints healthy.

*I am so passionate about breaking down barriers to yoga in Hitchin* and have just launched a new class (see class times page) for 'Pay what you can afford' this is completely confidential, life can throw awful situations at us we are not in control of, I have been through trauma and hardship myself and want to ensure no one  in Hitchin is stopped financially from having  the chance to practice yoga so please get in touch.... xx

Finally....I believe these classes offer fabulous opportunities to improve our physical and mental health, whatever you are coming to yoga for.....

I hope to hear from you, thanks for reading.

NAMASTE

My Yoga Mission....

Four classes a week at The Sun Hotel

 Beginner's sessions to Advanced level.

Lovely welcoming friendly environment. 

 

"YOGA IS FREEDOM, NOT PERFECTION"

 

....Not about how far you can fold, it's about how you feel at the end of Savasana! (the closing phase).

BENEFITS OF YOGA

Yoga stills the mind and can bring peace and clarity. It is a way of life, teaching us that even though something in our lives that we face may be very challenging, we can find peace in that space..on and off the mat. In our modern, sometimes hectic, day to day living, we can spend much of our time with our bodies tensed in auto pilot mode without even knowing it. When we come to stillness we often find for example that we are holding our shoulders hunched up, even if a little.

Yoga encourages us to think about our posture and how we 'hold our bodies', creates space within when we stretch or open up and releases tension. The gentle exercising and massaging of our joints and muscles, leaving us feeling centred and calm.

YOGA IS THE JOURNEY TO THE SELF, THROUGH THE SELF

For an hour we can let go and not think about anything else other than our breath and focus on what we are doing.

It is wonderful for self expression and also for helping to process difficult emotions if need be.

This synchronicity of mind focus, breath and body acts as a moving meditation, breathing life and oxygen into us, our whole body and mind are nourished. It is as though through yoga we can fully blossom.

WE CAN FIND OUR TRUTH...DEVELOP OUR INTUITION
OUR BODY ALWAYS KNOWS WHAT WE NEED.....

SHARING OVER 15 YEARS OF YOGA PRACTICE..

I trained as a Yoga Teacher with CamYoga where I achieved my YTT 200 Hrs Teacher Training, and currently I'm studying for my Advanced Teacher Training 500 Hours qualification, with SIDDHI YOGA in India.

 

I'm so excited to share this authentic practice with you!

 Now recognised by the NHS, yoga's benefits to mental and physical health are endless. Having practised now for over 15 years I also have achieved many training qualifications in Yoga for Anxiety, Yoga for Empaths, meditation, and also a  Diploma in Mindfulness.

 

With experience of a Post Traumatic Stress condition myself, classes are designed to bring the nervous system into a calm rest and digest mode, bringing peace and lightness to body and mind.

I also love teaching children and young people and have taught yoga to pupils in 'Feeling Good Week' at school and recently a group of 12 Spanish students aged 17 to 75.

My past education experience as a Secondary teacher enables me to adapt quickly to all needs of each student.

I practice karma yoga which is the act of teaching yoga purely to support others, if you have a low income or are in a vulnerable situation, please let me know.

Yoga mats, supporting blocks, straps provided.

 

 Also available for corporate or  1-1 yoga sessions, tailored to what you would like.

For every human being life has its inevitable duality of ups and downs. I have always experienced periods of generalised anxiety, had post natal anxiety, and post traumatic stress after the tragic sudden loss of my partner aged just 40. 

These life-changing experiences, painful and unforgettable, have shaped who I am; yoga was and is my solid support, so I wish to help pass on the gift of yoga to others.

I'm passionate about providing affordable, accessible (and non intimidating) yoga to people. Classes are really friendly, something so important in yoga, every body is unique and different, and it is a misconception that yoga is about flexibility. I have always suffered from lower back pain, I have had a frozen shoulder (well, two!) which really helped me to adapt yoga for certain injuries. I offer a holistic practice for new yogis or yogis with health conditions. Fundamentally though, yoga is far far more than a physical pose, it is a way of life. Bringing stillness to the mind, and huge opportunity for self expression and expansion, it is an offering to ourselves, a beautiful ritual steeped in Indian history almost 5,000 years old. In our modern world where things don't seem to stop, yoga offers us as human beings an ancient Indian philosophy that can bring us;

"evenness of mind, detachment from the dualities of pain and pleasure, success and failure....required if one is to act in freedom, rather than merely react to events compelled by conditioning".           The Bhagavad Gita, Eknath Easwaran

I can't wait to practice yoga with you, and hope to see you very soon!
