Move your body, Still your mind.
Whether its Yoga, Meditation, Yoga Nidra, Somatics or Barre workouts you're interested in, I would love to help you.
I teach mixed ability classes in the Hatha Yoga tradition in a warm bright studio in Richmond ... but with a little something extra -wonderful, slow yoga with somatic movements including restorative yoga postures and sometimes a yoga nidra session... at the end of the class. Somatic yoga movements are simple, slow and relaxing movements which help to release chronic muscle tension.
I also teach Yoga Nidra for insomnia, stress and anxiety. I've practised it for many years and still find it very helpful throughout the perimenopausal years. I am currently working on creating Yoga Nidra recordings -varying in length from ten minutes (for a quick pick-me-up) to longer one- hour sessions.
Then there is Barre - do you want to strengthen your body, tone your arms, lift your butt, flatten your abs and all whilst burning fat? Then why not join me for a Barre workout - a low-impact, high intensity workout designed to strengthen, tone and sculpt the whole body. It is a workout which is set to dance music and which combines the precision of Pilates, the alignment of Yoga and the Lotte Berk Method (which combines the elements of dance, yoga and orthopaedic back exercises). The muscles in each major muscle group are fatigues via small, targeted movements, high numbers of repetitions and light weight/resistance. In addition to building strength, the full body workout also develops balance, posture, agility, mobility and flexibility. Even if your primary focus is on getting ready for a race, Barre is a great and fun form of cross-training to maintain strength and all-round fitness. Personally, my running and cycling have improved since including Barre into my weekly routine.
If you have health conditions which you think may prevent you from practising yoga ( bad knees, a bad heart, a bad back, osteoporosis, arthritis, recovering from cancer are a few that come to mind) - please contact me. Many of my students thought so too. I can show you that there is a way for you to enjoy the benefits of yoga, meditation and pranayama (the practice of breath control).
If you are interested in coming along to a class, contact me so that I can give you directions to the class venue and let you know if there is a space. Insured By: Balens Ltd Specialist Insurance Brokers
