Yoga Teaching Style
Yoga is a great tool for self-inquiry and as an instructor, I encourage students to turn inward during their practice to experience a meditation in motion and be an observer of their bodies and minds. That being said, I like to create classes with playful sequencing, and approach the class with a sense of honesty, and humor. I try to cater to the physical needs of the students while making sure to deliver a practice that intends to unify the mind, body and soul.
Power/Fitness/Vinyasa Yoga - Power flow builds strength, endurance, balance and coordination while maintaining strong connection to the breath. My energizing power flow class offers an integration of pranayama, standing, balancing, seated, and supine postures.
Hatha Yoga - A yoga class focused on slowing down the mind and body. A series of restful postures in a slow sequence designed for students to go inward, surrender, and quiet the mind and body.
Yoga Nidra/Meditation - A guided class of complete relaxation. Usually 30 minutes - 60 minutes long, the students are guided through a 'yogic-sleep' where they are completely relaxed but totally aware. Benefits of yoga nidra include improved concentration, improved mental clarity and release of muscle tension, stress and anxiety.
Yoga for Healthy Pregnancy - Yoga can help women get through their pregnancy with minimal discomfort. It also helps the birth and post-delivery stages. Yoga classes help to boost circulation and also help with fluid retention. The stretching exercises relieve aches and pains. Posture is also improved by yoga and this can help ease back problems, which are common in pregnant women. Yoga helps to prepare for the birth - it encourages breath and body awareness, reduces worry and teaches women to adapt to new situations.
Postnatal Yoga - Which can be started about six weeks after the birth, strengthens abdominal muscles and your pelvic floor. It also helps you to get back to your pre-pregnancy shape faster.
Private Tuition - If you want a private practice with me in a comfort of your house, contact me to arrange a meeting. The fee for one hour of private toution starts from £30.
Corporate Yoga - Corporate yoga is being embraced by progressive businesses all over UK.
Companies can offer yoga classes during lunch breaks, or as a workshop and it's a great way to promote health and boost morale. Classes can be tailored to your company and can include chair yoga, and strategies for stress management through meditation and pranayama.
Benefits of corporate yoga include improved memory, increased productivity, overall job satisfaction, improved health, reduced health care premiums and reduced employee absenteeism.
