Hi, I'm glad you have found me, let's see if I can help.
Classical Yoga is practiced for health and wellbeing as well as a spiritual path. It is the original Yoga, the roots of modern Yoga, and is firmly established in tradition. It is the deepest Yoga I know, that's why it's all I teach these days.

Classes with me.
Both the studio classes are similar, the main distinction between them is the amount of time spent in asana ( movement) compared to inner practices that come after which are done in stillness, either sitting or lying down.
Both of the classes have some asana, some breathwork, some chanting, some connection to philosophy, some meditation or visualization, it is just the amount that varies.
9.30 -10.30 am
An opportunity to find space, inner connection, perspective, and a safe space.The right class to explore the asana a bit more: combine it with chanting and always followed with either pranayama or meditation. There's an optional 20 mins of Vedic chanting starting at 9.00 am.
A special time to devote to self-care, personal growth, and inner connection. The first 30 mins bring you back into your body so you can go deep for the last 30 mins.
The 2nd half is Yoga Nidra. A guided systematic relaxation that facilitates profound rest and healing.
Term Two dates May 7th-July 11th ( 10 weeks).

Frequently Asked Questions.
I am looking for Yoga to help with stress, will this help?
Yes, it will. The emphasis in them is using the movements to serve the breath which then influences the mind in a positive way. An aspect of these teachings is self-inquiry, so you will begin to notice your own responses and learn how to moderate them, over time.
Do I have to choose one class in particular for my term pass?
No, you don't. If you prefer or already have your one class a week you come to that works. But equally, if you want to rotate between the two classes depending on your schedule or what you are feeling like each week that works too. There's no need to book, just arrive.
What if I am sick and miss a class?
You are welcome to make up missed classes during the term by coming to other classes.
If it is something major, for you or you family we will sort out a mutually agreeable solution.
What if I work shifts and cant come every week?
We will work out a term pass rate based on how many times you can come.
Can I join halfway through a term?
Yes you can.
