When you listen to yourself, everything comes naturally. It comes from inside, like a kind of will to do something. Try to be sensitive. That is yoga.

What is Yoga?

Yoga has been practiced for thousands of years as a way of finding a place of inner calm and encouraging self-awareness. There are many elements to yoga but the one we know and practice most commonly is the physical component of yoga (known as asana).

During yoga the body stretches, tones and opens, boosting our physical and emotional wellbeing. There are many different styles of yoga, some follow a set sequence whilst others incorporate different postures into each class, they can be physically challenging or slow paced and reflective, whilst the style may vary, the common tie, is the connection that the movement and breath gives us to our ourselves.


My classes incorporate the flowing movements of vinyasa yoga with transformational kriya sequences. They are moderately paced and suitable for all abilities, students are encouraged to find their own balance between effort and ease, turning their focus within the body brings a sense of inner stability and harmony.
