Private YOGA As Therapy – Yoga Somatics and Restorative – Healing the body-mind 

For anyone in recovery or with chronic illness, auto immune conditions  or simply as a complimentary de stress to the world we live in.  All in the comfort of your own home, equipment provided.

We will start with SATYA (Sensory Awareness Training for Yoga Attunement) is Prajna Yoga’s “yin” style practice. All the movements are done on the floor in a flowing fashion, without force. The SATYA movements cultivate inner listening and heighten proprioceptive awareness. This awareness is the body’s innate intelligence. The exercises are non-weight bearing and involve sliding, gliding and circular movements to reduce myo-fascial holding in the body.

We will cultivate essential sensory-motor awareness by experiencing small movements out of gravity. Movements that benefit the lower back, iliopsoas and spine.  Thus helping to reduce body fatigue.

Our body tissues absorb our living experience whether it is the food we eat, the way we live or the stress of our everyday lives. It’s no wonder we encounter discomfort and dis-ease. This practice will allow us to pause and using small somatic movements along with meditation and breathwork, help address these imbalances.

Somatic postures are used as a means to increase strength and flexibility, as well as heightening our ability to listen to deeper nerve pulsations and flows within the body.
See SATYA 1 for more information of this wonderful yoga practice.

I teach on a 1-1 or 1-2 basis at your home. Currently full. Contact me for when I next have availability.

Yoga In School

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.” (possibly Albert Einstein)

Apologies – I don’t teach in schools any more but can pass you on to someone that can.

I have a BSC(Hons) in Psychology, a year of which was spent studying Child Development. 

I am enhanced DBS checked,  first aid trained and am trained and experienced working with the SEN code of Practice.

I undertook my Children’s Yoga and Teenage Yoga Teacher Training with the mindfulness expert, Christiane Kerr of CalmForKids in London and have been teaching yoga in preschools and schools since 2014.

Yoga is a fantastic mindful movement integrating body and mind with the breath.

For children and teenagers,  yoga helps development in the following ways

  • Develop body awareness
  • Learn how to use their bodies in a healthy way
  • Manage stress through breathing, awareness, meditation and healthy movement
  • Build concentration
  • Increase their confidence and positive self-image
  • Feel part of a healthy, non-competitive group
  • Have an alternative to tuning out through constant attachment to electronic devices
