This is a general session working on different aspects of the body each week and combines three styles of yoga; Kundalini, Hatha and Yin. Kundalini yoga uses breathwork and moving postures to stimulate organs, glands and chakras, while building stamina. Hatha yoga stretches and lengthens the body while Yin yoga deeply opens joints and releases tension. Each class has breathwork, postures, relaxation and a brief meditation. This yoga works well for people who need to de-stress, build some core strength and can be adapted for beginners or experienced yogis. Early bird classes offer the option of just 30min zing to set you up for the day with full kriya for those who wish to complete the full hour.

Intensive In Person Classes
Pussy Power – Yoga to create happy and healthy women (Booking is necessary!)
This class addresses the neural wiring in our pelvises and our brains to restore health and happiness. It is suitable for all ages and anyone who identifies as a woman. It is beneficial particularly for those who have depression/ongoing stress, an unhappy sexual history, hormonal imbalance, or pelvic floor issues. Those who have low libido or feel a bit bored with their sex lives, or just plain mystified with whatever goes on “down there”. In fact if you call this “down there” then you really need to come along! A deeply nourishing and supportive class sharing simple skills from the Kundalini, Daoist and Tantric yoga traditions so that you can learn to practice at home. Please book in for a module. Come along for the intro session and then sign up for the 4-6 week module. This creates a space of trust and depth of experience. Also look to the events page for ongoing Pussy Power workshops.

Perinatal Yoga (on request)
This class fosters a woman centred birth and pregnancy. I love active birth and each class works towards this with “birth circuit training” a series of gentle and simple things I’ve developed to keep your labour progressing even while resting. The class also works with breath, sound and stretches to help ease all those aches and pains.
You can also book in to have a session with your chosen birth partner present so they can be trained up to help you. They can be your voice, your advocate and set of muscles to hold you up in any position you feel helps. (They might need to do some strength training too!)
Mon-Fri on request
Private classes are a great way to begin or deepen your yoga experience. You might also want to consider this if you have any health concerns, are recovering from injuries or if you have any burning questions about any aspect of yoga. You might regularly attend group classes but require some help starting a home practice for yourself.
A private class with me may also use tools from my other healing modalities of homeopathy, flower essences or acupressure self care.
I offer individualised yogic prescriptions of postures, medical meditations and pranayama for physical/mental/spiritual health so that you can continue to nurture your well being as a part of your daily life.
