What is Yoga Flow?

Yoga Flow (or ‘Vinyasa’ Yoga) is an exciting dynamic yoga practise, combining flowing movement with classic Hatha yoga postures. Flow Yoga is a place where flexibility binds with strength, movement collides with stillness, and creativity blends with physical prowess- this class will make you sweat, get your body moving in new ways, and leave you feeling energised and focused in the face life’s challenges. Learn how to harness your core strength and attain optimal postural alignment for your body. Building up to physically challenging yoga postures such as arm balances, inversions, and backbends. Anything is possible!

What is Yin Yoga?

Yin Yoga is a deeply nourishing, mentally relaxing & meditative practise. Yin is all about slowing down, the perfect compliment to a faster paced life. In a yin class we will do few poses compared to in a flow classes, but each posture is held for a long time (usually between 2-5 minutes), using props and supports to help us to relax very deeply into each posture. Yin leaves you feeling calm, more content, more present, and more open and receptive to the joy of life. Through Yin, we can learn to trust and surrender into the stretch, gently letting go of unnecessary tension in our bodies and our minds.

Who can come to your classes?

I welcome all levels of students into my public classes, from total beginners to long-term practitioners. So whether you are someone who barely knows your fingers from your toes, or are doing handstands before breakfast, I offer a complete and comprehensive class with structured choices and options to suit all levels and body types. If you are nervous or feel uncomfortable for any reason about practising in a larger group setting, private sessions might suit you better, click here to find out more about working with me in a 1-to-1 or small group setting.

What should I bring to my first yoga class?

All you need to bring is yourself, a bottle of water perhaps, and, if you like, something warm to put on to keep you warm during relaxation. All of the gyms and studios I work in provide all of the mats and equipment you might need. Wear clothes that you are comfortable moving in (gym kit is perfect), and if you want to do feel free bring along a pillow or blanket to provide yourself with some additional comfort (especially in yin classes!). Yoga is traditionally practised with bare feet. Some people like to wear special yoga grip socks, which is fine with me so long as your toes are able to move freely.
