The Yoga

This will be a creative, exploratory and fun week, offering varied, interesting and enquiring practices which will allow us to experience yoga or union in its fuller sense.

The elements form a huge part of who we are. They affect our experience of life in multiple ways. Everything in creation is made up of the 5 elements of earth, air, fire, water and ether. Learning how to tune into, and work with the elements brings a new vibrancy, depth of experience, enhanced awareness and a greater understanding to yoga practice…. and life in general.

As the body continously seeks to find balance in all of its complex layers, we can learn how to commune with the elements, their qualities and associations within the body to help find that elusive state of being.

Working with curiosity and the ‘beginners mind’ always, we will journey through the elements to help restore natural order, inspire the creativity of our best self and promote wellness.

The week will incorporate both stimulating and gentle hatha, yin yoga and accessible flowing yoga. Restorative and somatic work and yoga nidra will also be offered……a range of practices for all.

Who will this week suit? – Complete beginners to experienced yogis…all are welcome. All that is required is an open mind and a willingness to learn. For those with more experience there will be an opportunity to re-visit yoga practice with a new eye and use this to refresh, deepen and learn more!

If you have specific injuries or health issues please contact me to discuss suitability of this week for you.

Non Yogi partners – if you would like to bring a friend or partner who isn’t interested in joining the yoga, they would be most welcome.

Please note! This week is not suitable for people who are only interested in strong physical yoga. This will not be ‘boot camp’ yoga.

My teaching and development is an ongoing joy for me as I love to learn and bring more to my own practice and to my students. Attending teacher trainings regularly I have been lucky to study in recent years with several renowned teachers including Max Strom, Paul Grilley, Anodea Judith, Norman Blair and Lisa Sanfilippo.

I am especially interested in the complementary teachings of Ayurveda having completed the BWY Ayurveda module with Cathy-Mae Karelse and change my practice in accordance with the seasons.

It has been both wonderful and challenging for me to commence Yoga Therapy training in 2018 with Heather Mason at The Minded Institute.

I am a friendly and approachable person! Throughout my life I have always worked with people, both as a nurse, in hospitals and a care manager in hostels with many different client groups. As a yoga teacher, I try always to get to know my students, understand their needs and bring a sense of humour and element of fun and joy into my class.

I use inspirations and wisdom from all of my teachers to enrich and widen my experience and continuously refresh and enliven the teaching I offer my students. I offer an eclectic and creative yoga which is grounded in classical Integral Hatha yoga, fused with elements of fluid vinyasa and the grounding qualities of Yin practice with philosophical teachings to give meaning and depth.

With thousands of hours of teaching under my belt, I offer a warm welcome to all new students and seek to work with each person to help them understand and enjoy their practice and potential for great living through their yoga practice. Practicing mindfully and with full awareness gives us a wonderful opportunity to grow and enjoy life.

In my classes I combine asana practice for all levels with pranayama (breath work), mantra and mudra yoga to provide a strong and rounded teaching with a sense of curiosity and fun. It is usually possible to offer alternatives so that everyone can access the class at their particular level of practice.

I have a deep love of yoga which I hope to share through my teaching. We are all on a journey together!
