Community Classes

My community classes are a great way to bring a regular and consistent yoga practice into your life

and this is one of the best ways to reap the benefits of Yoga.

You will also have an opportunity to connect with like-minded people and make friends in a welcoming, supportive, and non-judgmental environment.

 

My classes are aimed at all levels of experience, whether you are a beginner or an advanced Yogi. I offer modifications so you can adapt the practice to your individual needs on any given day. 

Join me in any of the venues below to discover the transformative power of yoga.

I am here to guide you on your journey to physical and mental wellbeing (on and off the mat).

YOGA EVENTS
& WORKSHOPS

Short workshops , events and day retreats will offer you a chance to deepen your Yoga practice and to step out of your busy life for a while to slow down, rest and reconnect to your truer SELF .

Tips for your first yoga class:

This may be your first yoga class or you may be returning to yoga? That's great news and I am excited to have you joining my friendly class! I love yoga and the benefits (both physical and mental) that come with practising yoga and I am excited to share this with you.

However, you may be uncertain as to what to expect from the class which is natural of course when trying anything new!

So here is some useful information for your first class that will hopefully put your mind at ease:

What do I do?

• My typical class will incorporate a short period of breathing practice to settle the mind and prepare our mind, body and breath for the physical posture work.

 

• We will then move onto warming and mobilisation postures before moving onto stronger postures. Everyone will be included because I explain and demonstrate how each posture can be modified to benefit any student regardless of ability, experience, shape or size. A modified version or variation of a posture has exactly the same benefits as full expressions of the postures.

• Often there will be a theme to the class, and/or or one or two peak postures/ or short sequence of postures which we work towards during the class.

• The physical posture work will be followed by relaxation. There are many different relaxation techniques that can be used. Guided relaxation is an excellent method of helping us manage stress and calm the body and mind.

• All you need to bring is yourself! If you have a yoga mat then bring that along too, but if you need a mat I have some spare ones. However, for hygiene reasons it would be advisable to invest in one.

• For comfort you might want to bring something warm to wear and/or a blanket for the relaxation part of the practice but these are not essential. Although the room will be comfortably warm you may find that you feel cool as you relax as the breathing and heart rate become slower. Also, you might want to bring a cushion to sit on for the breathing practice but again this is not essential.

(Tip: a rolled-up blanket is also perfect for kneeling to protect the knees).

 

• Bring a bottle of water if you would like in case you get thirsty.

 

• Towel, yoga strap or any other props you may have. I have some spare blocks, bricks and straps if needed.

• Wear loose, comfortable clothing (generally not restricting movements).

•During the physical part of the practice, you will have to take your socks off. This is for the safety reasons (socks on yoga mats can be slippy!) but it will also allow you to feel more grounded during the practice by having our feet in contact with the mat.

If you have any more questions about what to expect from your first class please get in touch.

I look forward to welcoming you to my class
