What is Yoga?

Yoga is a combination of physical posture work, breathing and relaxation techniques.

Yoga enhances your physical and emotional well-being. It can improve your balance and co-ordination. It will develop your flexibility and certain Yoga poses will build your physical strength.

Yoga has been shown to be beneficial for the relief of stress and anxiety, releasing tension from muscles. Yoga can improve your sleep and, in some cases, assist chronic fatigue and pain management.

Thursday 9:30am and 11am

At Bronleigh my classes will be small and friendly. They will focus on the Yoga postures and every class will have a relaxation session.

I will also be offering Yoga sessions on a one to one basis, or for two people if you wish to share the cost with a friend or family member. I will also be offering a Parent & Teenager session. With these sessions you can have the choice of concentrating on physical postures or as much relaxation or meditation as you require. These sessions will be open to anyone, of any ability; they will be ideal for those affected with stress & anxiety.

I have been practising yoga for over a decade and am a Yoga Alliance qualified teacher.  I completed my training in Rishikesh in India where I learnt that all you really need in life is a yoga mat and a bucket.  I am pleased to able to offer a range of classes in the beautiful Bronleigh House studio and my aim is that after each of my classes you will be left feeling contentedly loose and relaxed.


Wednesday 7:00pm

This will be a gentle, stretchy class at a slow, relaxing pace where each posture can be adapted.  Try this if you want a gentle introduction to yoga or just want to relax while working the body in a way to suit you.

Thursday 6:30pm

Hatha Yoga, a class run at a slightly slower pace, giving you time to get to know each pose, but also go deeper into the stretch if you want to push yourself.
