Taking control of your own health and well being is important. Yoga is an excellent way to do this. it can increase, flexibility, strength, co-ordination and balance as well as improve your sense of calm and well being.
But if you looked at (social) media perhaps you think yoga is for bendy twenty somethings? Well, as a 50+ teacher I can tell you it’s not.
You might be unsure yoga is for you, not certain how to start, worried you will feel out of place in a yoga class, I understand this.
I’d like to reassure you it’s worth trying yoga and it’s never too late to start. I know you want to improve your health and well being and I’d like to help you.
Maybe you have tried yoga before but couldn’t do it because it was too fast, too difficult.
My classes are slow, peaceful, attentive. I provide a lot of modifications as everyone’s body is different. I understand that your body might not be used to moving, you may have a sedentary lifestyle, or the opposite: work too hard, sleep too little. You may be overweight or over a certain age. I welcome you.
There’s no need to invest in a yoga mat or any equipment as I provide all of those. I am trained by the British Wheel of Yoga; this is a three year diploma training equivalent to a foundation degree. It not only includes a thorough grounding in anatomy and physiology, but also postures, philosophy and meditation. In my training there is a great emphasis on teaching accessible yoga for all.
