I teach Hatha, Yin and Gentle Years Chair based Yoga in and around the beautiful city of Winchester, Hampshire, and online for your convenience. I offer private one-to-one and one-to-two yoga in my Winchester home studio; in your home; and online with the private yoga recording for you to enjoy practising again later in the week too.
I look forward to welcoming you to one of my classes very soon so that you can experience the fantastic body-mind benefits that yoga can bring. I am a very experienced and fully insured yoga teacher (Friends of Yoga [FRYOG] and Real Yoga, 2017, British Wheel of Yoga [BWY] Gentle Years Yoga©, 2022). My first yoga teaching Diploma was awarded by Wingrove Yoga School/ FRYOG, 1984, Distinction). I am also a qualified Coach (Bristol Business School, UWE and Bristol Centre for Mentoring and Coaching, 2016 Distinction) and hold a PhD from the School of Management, University of Bath, 2008.
Hatha Yoga tends to be gentle with a series of warm ups leading up to static poses (Asana) which improve flexibility and bodily strength. A Hatha class offers a great body-mind introduction to yoga where you will learn how to stretch, unwind, and release tension. Students also work with the breath (Pranayama) as a preparation for relaxation and meditation.
Yin Yoga works at a deeper level in the body with longer-held passive stretches and poses, aided by different props such as yoga bricks and blankets. It targets the deep connective tissues: the fascia networks and ligaments, joints, and bones. Flexibility and joint mobility improves through fascia release. Yin yoga also reduces stress and anxiety. It is a wonderful restorative and balancing tonic for body and mind.
