What style of yoga do you practice?
I teach a gentle, nourishing, feminine style of yoga.
The yoga is non-traditional in that I teach a mix of styles and traditions that I have learnt in my 40 years of practicing yoga.
My formal yoga teacher training is in Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, yin yoga and Tantra, all specializing in women (YA200, YA100 hours + Tigress Yoga)
I tend to use English terms and minimize the use of Sanskrit, to make the yoga practice as accessible as possible for a broad range of people.
We practice a lot of spirals and circles, as opposed to the linear alignment focus common in traditional yoga. We embrace what is to be a woman, in all aspects of our ‘changing’ cyclical nature and welcome all that we are in our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual body.
My coaching practice draws on my professional training and experience and expertise, in psychology and education, and my rich and varied life experiences.
How much yoga should I do each week?
I encourage a regular practice of a minimum of three to four times a week. The more you practice the more yoga will become a regular part of your life.
A little + often = A lot.
I offer shorter, as well as longer practices, to fit in with your schedule. Most importantly, it’s about doing what works for you and your lifestyle and schedule.
I have an injury or medical condition - Can I still do yoga?
Yes, in the majority of cases you can still practice some form of yoga. Yoga Asana (physical postures) may even be recommended by a medical professional, physiotherapist or chiropractor to make yoga part of your lifestyle to assist with recovery of an injury or to help reduce stress and muscle tension. Please check with your medical practitioner before doing any of the practices I share.
And remember yoga is not limited to asana or physical postures. In many of my courses and events I share diverse yoga practices include meditation, mudra, mantra, yantra, ritual and Self-inquiry.
I am pregnant or trying to become pregnant?
The yoga that I offer is designed for the woman’s body, and so is, in the main, suitable for pregnancy. Please check with your medical practitioner ahead of signing up for any of my offers.
Pregnant women are welcome to attend my in-person events and online courses if you have been practicing yoga prior to getting pregnant. I do not take on students who are completely new to yoga as it is best that you find a specific prenatal yoga course.
In my in-person events and coaching offers, I offer variations for poses specific to needs at the time. For my online offers please modify the practices for your body and your needs.
