Return to the yoga mat

Hello, how are you? Do you fancy a yoga class?

I do and here is why.

It has been too long since I have practiced with a group and I miss it. I miss the anticipation I feel before the class, I miss the nervousness of meeting new people, I miss the excitement of moving through breathwork and poses. I miss seeing the calm and relaxation in rested faces after savasana. I miss sharing my practice in a way that helps me and others

So as of the 24th of August I will be returning to teaching at The Scout Hut in Newport on Tay. On a Wednesday and a Friday morning.

Classes will start at 9 am and be 75 mins long.

Wednesdays class will be for complete beginners, no experience necessary. Slow and gentle movement introducing your body to yoga and breathwork.

Fridays class will also be suitable for beginners but will be slightly more active (really not much more as I love the slow pace) where options will be given for all abilities and body types.

Questions clients have asked in the past

What if I can’t do the pose?

If you read my blog you will know I am not a pose grabber. For me the pose is the least important part of the practice the real work is in the little movements and breath that prepares the body for the pose.

What if I get tired/sore during class?

This shouldn’t happen as classes will be slow and gentle but I have had clients in the past that come into a comfortable resting pose for a few minutes (and once for the whole class!) This is your safe place and there is no should or have to. It’s about listening to your body and doing what feels right.

Do you do touch or do adjustments in class ?

I do not do adjustments, your mat is your safe space. My own experience of being at a class and have someone try move my body into a position that I was not ready for was not a good one. (have I done a blog on this topic? If not I probably should!)

What do I wear?

Anything that is comfortable and easy to move in. Maybe a couple of layers so you can remove a layer if you get too hot. There is no need for anything fancy.

What do I need to bring?

I have most things that you will need blocks, bolsters, straps etc However if you have your own mat you are welcome to bring that but if not or you forget yours there are some spare.

Are the classes busy?

I like to keep my classes small 8/10 people max. The most important thing for me is the space I provide for clients to explore. Explore their own body and mind and emotions through breathwork and movement. To take a step away from hustle and bustle and look inward.

Do you still teach outdoors?

Occasionally classes will be held outdoors on the grass outside the Scout Hut (weather dependent) giving us a chance to connect to nature and the elements.

How much do classes cost and how do I pay?

Classes can be booked as a block of 4 for £36

Or Paid each week at £10 a class

Both by cash or PayPal

    Many thanks
