The gentle flow of breath allows any tension to fall away enhancing a sense of calmness and leaves the body and mind refreshed, uplifted and well balanced. Emphasis is on flow and intensity, and isincredibly exhilarating. While focusing on the breath, muscle contraction and the flow, an incredible heat and sweat is developed that is powerfully toning and invigorating.
I am a firm believer that Yoga holds something for everyone, whatever their stage in life and that Yoga skills can really help you maintain a physical, emotional and mental balance - giving you a firmfoundation for life's ups and downs. Since then I have undertaken comprehensive training to become a Yoga teacher and further training in Pregnancy Yoga, Postnatal Yoga, Yoga for Mum and Baby, Children's Yoga - working with some of the leading teachers in this field.
I began studying yoga aged 20 in Australia, where my first teacher showed me the wonderful power that belongs to all of us, just for the fact that we are alive, whatever state our body may be in. Ifulfilled a long-held desire to become a yoga teacher at the Arhanta Yoga Ashram in Madhya Pradesh, India.

I believe YOGA IS FOR EVERYONE, Yoga means 'unity' or 'yoke' and practising Yoga is a means of balancing and harmonising Body, Mind and Spirit. Hat-ha Yoga is a system of postures and breath for thewhole body - the postures (asana) are used as a physical practise to correct alignment, strengthen muscles, spine and core, increase flexibility and release anxiety and stress. We learn to synchronise the body and breath, thereby bringing balance to both body and mind.
Yoga is an ancient science and practice, which originated in India over 5000 years ago to address physical, mental and spiritual development. The word 'Yoga' is a Sanskrit term derived from the root'Yuj', which means to yoke, join or unite. There are many different styles of yoga. Some styles are fast paced and vigorous while others are very gentle and slow-moving.
We offer a range of classes from beginner level through all ages and stages of life and hold weekend Workshops in a number of therapies, philosophies and techniques.

I first encountered Yoga whilst at university, I knew very little about the subject but I liked the calm that attending a class brought. I continued to practice throughout both of my pregnancies, andfeel that it was due to my practice that I had two relatively straightforward pregnancies and labours. It was after this that I felt the desire to share the gift of Yoga with others, and embarked on a teacher training course with Simon Low's Yoga Academy.
