I remember my first yoga class well. It was over 12 years ago in a large, cold school PE hall. There were lots of people and I found my way to the back, far out of sight of the teacher. My Mum hadpushed me to go, saying that I'd appreciate it in the end. A few months previously I'd been involved in a terrible accident, being knocked over as a pedestrian by a bus in Vancouver, Canada. I'd always led an active life, I'd been a runner for many years.

I went to my first yoga class 15 years ago and after a few months in India in 1999 and the birth of my daughter in 2001, I began training as a yoga teacher and I have not stopped. I now have privatelessons with Penelope in the Krishnamacharya tradition and I am trying to learn handstand. I enjoy the physical aspects of yoga and I also like to bring the philosophical ideas into my classes because yoga is a way of life and includes moral guidance, breathing, meditating and more.
The oldest scriptures containing yogic thoughts and practices are many thousands of years old. The yoga tree is comprised of many branches including Mantra, Karma, Bhakti, Raja and Hatha to name but afew. The different styles of yoga familiar in the West are all forms of Hatha yoga which dates back around 1000 years. Hatha yoga practices commonly consist of asanas (postures), cleansing practices, pranayama and meditation.
All teachers, trainees and students of Vajrasati Yoga are trusted and encouraged to make their own honest exploration into yoga, it's practice and it's implications. Just as a mountaineer makes theirown journey up a mountain, that journey will be original and demand the highest degree of creativity. Vajrasati Yoga (VS Yoga) most often takes the form of a straightforward Modern Postural Yoga class i.e. body work.
Yoga came to me in two ways. A curiosity from being the child of two medics. And from growing up in competitive sport. I love sports science, But I wanted to know what can I do to make these achingmuscles feel better? What soothes them? I studied yoga, especially the vinyasa practice, during my university years alongside the BWY. Then I went the heartland India. Immersive study in Hatha Yoga.
Classes are given in an open, relaxed and safe environment providing a sanctuary from your everyday life. Most classes are a dynamic flow style of yoga (definition below) and are suitable for peopleat all levels, as modifications are given during postures. Carefully compiled playlists are used to complement the sequences. Music can help you to relax into postures, transport you from your daily routine and deepen your practice.
We will alternate strengthening and softening movements of the whole body with various postures in a relaxed tempo. We work with different variations depending on current health states. Throughconscious breathing and meditation, we release tension and return to the harmonious space of the present moment. This way we build a balanced body, mind and spirit, and a healthy relationship with ourselves. Each class is original.
Zoë Reason trained (and teaches within) the Iyengar Yoga tradition. She is certified (and insured) to teach by the Iyengar Yoga Association (UK). Iyengar training is often regarded as one of the mostthorough and demanding systems of teaching people to teach yoga. The Iyengar method is methodical and progressive. Which means that you start with simple movements and then, as you progress, you move on to more complicated poses and to more sensitive and subtle ways of working in basic poses.
