What: Strengthen and tone your body, improve focus and calm your mind.
Why: You can use yoga to help you on many different levels, but it is important to come to it with no ego, to ignore anyone else around you - time to focus on what you and your body is doing and focus on your individual strengths and weaknesses.
How: I teach Hatha, using poses in a flowing and stimulating way. Having recently completed another anatomy course, my understanding and passion for developing body work has increased and feeds into the classes through both stronger poses but also softer/more subtle work, using the breathing muscles and bandhas to create that intournal focus and strength. Working on an individual level yoga stretches and challenges, not only the body but also the mind.
I offer one to one classes which can be a really nice way to introduce yourself to yoga if you are new or to focus on a certain pose or body part you are suffering with.
I also offer Yoga in the Office - I can come and teach onsite, helping release stiff and stressed bodies and minds. All you need is a meeting room free for an hour!
What: my approach to massage stems from a holistic idea of working with the client to aid and relieve tension, be it physical or emotional. Whilst everyone's needs are different, I focus on specific areas of the body whilst bringing elements of the whole into the massage.
How: Creating a warm and comfortable atmosphere is very important to help the client to feel at ease. I like to see massage as a 50-50 approach, working together and communicating with each other about what each person needs for that day.
