My Experience

My Experience

I like to share all the learning that I have gathered over the years. I have taught many people some of whom have become teachers from my classes. I provide a safe space where you can explore and enjoy your personal experience of yoga poses, breathing and relaxation. Yoga will change your body and your state of mind if practised frequently. The more you practice, the deeper the benefits and changes you will notice in yourself. Yoga is a practice that requires we humans to practice daily, in order to maintain the balance of our Energetic System. Thoughts and emotions disturb our Energetic equilibrium as this is the nature of being human. Yoga works as deeply as meditation but whilst meditation needs a greater accumulation of time in order to manifest the Energetic consequences, the benefits of physical yoga and chanting can be felt immediately. The ancient Yogis decided it was important to engage the physical body in practices as they believed that quiet meditation focussed too much on the mind only, hence the development of Hatha Yoga.

Each practice is a new experience, each day is a new day. You cannot compare your practice today to the one from yesterday – yesterday has gone, today is Present Time.
Notice what you ‘feel’and ‘sense’in your body and bring yourself into a state of “Still Presence within yourself” before we start, and during the postures. If you arrive late to class, you will miss this preparation time and you will disturb the space for the others who have started.

Yoga is a time to be still, to be free from your work or family demands. It gives you a time and space for your relationship with yourself and those around you – this starts in class. Yoga is a discipline and commitment – it is an exacting and exciting practice which develops integrity; physical and emotional stamina, greater awareness of others.

Your body reflects what is in your mind, hence the need to bring together the body-mind unit. Keep it well, keep it strong, keep it supple and your body will serve you well. We all age, we all die and yoga can prolong our time on this Earth.
Whilst some say that our body is of secondary importance in spiritual life – what do we do when our body breaks down!
Body, emotions and consciousness need to synchronize for our well- being. If our body is weak we cannot use the life-force with which we are endowed and blessed. Yogic practices keep the Life-force flowing in our body, bringing about equilibrium and strength.

I offer you a Yoga practice interweaving aspects of all the trainings that I have completed. I bring my own practice experiences to my classes – not teaching “from a book”.
My classes contain something for everyone and contain everything for everyone.
If you are open to experiencing Yoga without expectation or presumption, you will reap the benefits.
