Whilst yoga in the west is known for it's 'asana' (postural) practice, put simply, traditional yoga means 'path to truth' and this can be achieved by incorporating yoga into our everyday lives with simple practice of honouring our own natural rhythm - whether it's through mindfulness, breathing and/or posture work.
Understanding the importance of healing the body and restoring it's natural functions to full health, I consider the unique needs of each individual student and encourage practice through gentle progress that is centred around what each student can achieve for themselves at that time. It is not a competition, nor a practice to lose weight and look good, although these are two vital bonuses that can be achieved!
Yoga works all over the body and takes you into the deeper layers of yourself. Learning to tune into your breath in the correct way is a key element in my classes - with attention on the breath, the body moves itself.
