Introduction
The main aim of yoga is to calm the mind. This affects all the systems of the body, leading to increased mental and physical well-being.
During class we move with awareness, connecting each move to the breath and involving all of our being. Over time this way of moving softens all of our activities and thoughts.
How we move reflects and reinforces how we are. When we are stressed, or rushed we hold our bodies in a particular way and this imprints on our neurological pathways. Yoga helps to create a new way of being.

In this style of yoga, asanas are linked to the breath and flow together, carrying participants away on the movement. As the sequence engages the mind it is brought into the present moment leaving the whole system feeling refreshed.
Attention is drawn to different parts of the body, finding balance by awakening lazy muscles and relaxing those that do all the work. The practice is focused on concentration in the present moment and the body is stretched and strengthened leaving us feeling more vibrant and alive.
Please stay tuned into your body, never push into pain or discomfort physically, or with your breath.
Take breaks by lying down, or sitting down to watch the class whenever you need to.
Be gentle with your body and allow it to develop in its own time.

Classes include a flowing sequence of Asanas to stretch and strengthen the body, a short meditation to calm the mind and relaxation to rejuvenate the energy. A supple, strong body is the foundation for good health.
I have an anatomical approach to yoga and will enable you to recognise where you are over or underworking specific muscle groups. I will direct you to specific areas of the body to help you develop alignment, strength and energy. Each week we focus on a particular body-part, strengthening the core, opening the shoulders, activating the Bandhas etc, giving the class a technical element and training the body to work more effectively.
We will move with mindfulness, connecting with the breath and involving all of our being, rather than simply making yoga shapes. Over time this way of moving softens all of our activities and thoughts. How we move reflects and reinforces how we are. When we are stressed, or rushed we hold our bodies in a particular way and this imprints on our neurological pathways. Yoga helps to create a new way of being.
You do not need to be calm and flexible to do yoga, come however you are! These states arise through the practise.
Developing your physical fitness in a community of like-minded people is soothing, connecting and fun.

School ClassesWhat the girls at More House School are saying about their Yoga classes with me 

For the last six weeks the Lower sixth have been undergoing yoga and meditation sessions under the guidance of Ms Beatty. As a year group we found it extremely relaxing in terms of our newly found A Level related stress and it helped calm us in preparation for our afternoon lessons. We learnt to control our breathing through certain exercises and found a more sophisticated way of releasing our tension than we had previously.
We also realised the value of taking time to focus on ourselves and our mindset. Many of us noticed a marked improvement in our general concentration in school and also found ourselves sleeping easier at night. It was very enjoyable for us to learn a new method of relaxation and we would definitely recommend it to anyone else who feels particularly stressed by their work load.
