So this year we have reason to celebrate - and I've still got some of my original clients from 1995 still attending! As an RAD trained ballet dancer, I first started teaching ballet to children when Iwas sixteen years old, and have been teaching dancing, fitness classes and yoga in some form or another since then. In fact, the classes have been running at Coronation Hall since 1995! My best advertisement for my classes are my students.
Padma Yoga came in to existence in 2005. Following a sports injury in 2000, founder Claire Thomas, took up yoga to support her recovery. Whilst she did not return to sport until recently, Claire foundsomething in yoga that satisfied not only her desire to be physically challenged but also a depth in the practice that allowed her some time and space away from the challenges of her career.
All classes offered are 'Inter-disciplinary' in style. In simple terms 'Hatha' yoga is the practice of yoga which has a strong focus on asana's (postures) as opposed for example, to 'Bhakti' yogawhich is a devotional practice. The 'Inter-disciplinary' style incorporates various elements of the different Hatha yoga practices. The Hatha practice varies from discipline to discipline. There are many well-known variations; Iyengar, Astanga, Jivamukti, Bikram, Sivananda.

Inversions or inverted poses are an immensely important group of asanas. Instead of gravity pulling everything towards the feet, the orientation shifts towards the head. On the emotional and spirituallevels, inverted poses turn everything upside down, throwing a new light on old patterns of behavior and life.

For as long as I can remember I have had an interest in health and fitness and spent many years going to the gym regularly and running regularly. After beginning to experience health problems whichimpacted on my day to day life I started looking for ways to manage my health and fitness in a more holistic and nourishing way. I wanted to carry on exercising but realised that I needed to slow down a bit. That was when I discovered yoga and I have never looked back.
