A word about levels:
All classes are open to all levels. You are more than welcome to join whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned practitioner. In fact, most classes are attended by practitioners on all levels on that spectrum.
I foster a non-competitive, judgement-free environment and try and make sure that all participants are able to make the most of the class whatever their current experience and fitness and will help you explore how you can best express the intention of each posture with your own unique anatomy.
Yoga for Wellbeing
These Hatha Yoga classes incorporate a mixture of warm-up poses, breath work, sun salutations, stretches, balances and static postures.
I strongly believe a regular Yoga practice should support sustainable wellbeing and this is the guiding principle behind my classes.
The sessions are energising and lively, ending with a peaceful relaxation.
Zen Buddhist Meditation Group
These are group merditation sessions and draw from the Soto Zen Buddhist tradition. We will read passages from Zen texts and practice Zazen, sitting for 25 minutes as still as possible, facing a wall with knees on the ground or in a chair, eyes open, and back straight.
They are not guided meditation sessions nor are they intended as meditation lessons. Some basic guidance can be happily offered. No experience is required, although some might find a 25 minute period of silent meditation intimidatimng.
