Yoga is for everyone and anyone.
My aim is to teach Yoga to people of all ages and abilities, and to work with challenges such as illness and injury.  My yoga style is inclusive and encouraging and I run vinyasa flow classes.   

The vinyasa classes are structured as follows:  Pranayama (breathing techniques) where we find places to ground and grow, warm up section, heat section to burn the toxins and increase the cardio vascular tone, balance work, deeper stretching section and finally and deservedly, savasana (relaxation)
If you attend regular Yoga classes you will see noticeable benefits, both physically and mentally within a very short period of time.
 Yoga is great for people who haven't been active in a while. It’s good for people who have certain health conditions. All postures can be modified to suit your ability and needs.  Yoga is also fabulous if you're already fit and healthy but just need a challenging workout. 


What is Yoga and How Can it Help You?
Yoga is an ancient form of exercise, it is not just about achieving the physical postures.  The practice of yoga helps us achieve inner stillness, it is a state of mind.
Yoga helps you learn to come back to yourself, to find your limits and expand your boundaries.  
More than three-quarters of people who start yoga do so for physical exercise, improved health, or stress management.  The practice of yoga offers far more than physical postures and making marvellous pretzel shapes  — there is self-reflection, the practice of kindness and compassion, and continued growth and awareness of yourself and others.
The benefits of yoga are broad and all encompassing of a persons health and well-being.    
In the past it has known to been associated with new mysticism, a form of religion or the latest fad. However, over the past several years, yoga has increased in popularity in the western world, with many celebrities, professional sports people, athletes and medical professionals all now advocating yoga .   Yoga has been prescribed for injury prevention and recovery since its very beginnings.  

To stay healthy, active and engaged in any type of sports, sports men and women need corrective modalities to amend muscular imbalances, prevent injuries and ensure longevity. Yoga will support this as it increases muscle strength, flexibility, balance and mental alertness.  

Ryan Giggs was still playing Premier League football at the age of 40. He provides an irrefutable testament to the age-defying benefits of yoga.
