JUNE: 'Get Yoga Balanced' Workshop

Balance in yoga practice is just as important as the strength and flexibility of the body and mind.  It helps approach and tackle the difficult poses in the same way we tackle difficult situations in our daily life.  In yoga, it is paramount to understand the demands of the pose on the specific muscle groups and joints  in the context of the body as a whole and the biomechanical movement required to access it. 


During this workshop we will explore a range of balancing poses from the Ashtanga Yoga Primary Series with some modifications to cater for a variety of abilities to make the poses accessible to all abilities.


Date: Saturday 1 June 2019, 10:00 - 12:00

Cost: tbc closer to the date

Venue: hopefully somewhere outside, to enjoy the natural light and fresh air, so location/venue will be confirmed closer to the date.

One-to-One & Private Group Classes

There are many benefits in learning yoga in a One-to-One environment. You will have the teacher's undivided attention and the lesson will be structured addressing your individual goals. The lesson will be arranged at a time and location convenient for you. 


One-to-One classes are suitable for complete beginners who would like to learn the  fundamentals of yoga at their own pace; those with injuries or illnesses who require personalised consideration of how to modify some poses so that the poses can be accessible to them; or to practising yogis who wish to deepen their practice  or revise their alignment or technique.
