Yoga for adults
I'm delighted to be able to offer classes for adults as well as children so if you're looking for a class that will challenge you physically as well as mentally, but always with a strong element of fun, you've come to the right place!
I know it can be intimidating coming to a yoga class for the first time, but I try to create a welcoming environment for everyone - any age or ability - somewhere you feel safe to give it a go without judgement and with a light-hearted approach.
We won't gain any benefit from yoga without pushing ourselves, finding our edge and giving it a nudge, but for me it has to be fun - even if it doesn't always feel like that during the class, you'll love the after-glow...
I hear lots of people say they can't do yoga because they can't touch their toes, as if the teacher checks every student before they're allowed into the class! Yoga is a transformative practice so whatever your starting point is you will see improvements, but the aim isn't to make a pose look a particular way; it's about how it feels, and the affect that feeling has on your body and mind. I know yogis who have been practising for years and still can't touch their toes with straight legs, and reaching the acceptance that it might never be possible to do that can be as transformative as the physical ability to do so.
Yoga has a cumulative effect on your body and mind, so don't expect instant results or to feel completely transformed after your first class. I would encourage you to attend regular classes for a number of weeks - the more the better - then see how you feel compared to before you started. It's sometimes subtle, sometimes profound, but hopefully you'll notice a positive change.
I teach two styles of yoga; Vinyasa Flow and Yin. They are very different but complement each other brilliantly.
Classes are on Friday mornings at The Barn @ The Red Lion, Overton. You can drop in or book a block of classes in advance here.
