Technical Flow
Every Wednesday 9.30-10.30am To register click here
You do not need to be calm and flexible to do yoga, come however you are, these states arise through the practise.
You will learn sun salutations, how to synchronise the breath and movement, alignment and how to access specific muscle groups, a range of asanas, breathing techniques and transitions.
By calling us to concentrate on posture, movement and breath, yoga supports us out of our minds and into the here and now. This has a calming effect on the body and allows us to function more effectively on every level.

Restorative Yoga No restorative class 25th August 2022
Every Thursday 7.00-8.00pm To register click here
IMG_8781This class begins with a gentle, flowing, warm-up and progresses on to a series of restorative poses to calm the nervous system. Using bolsters, cushions, blocks and books restorative yoga brings the mind and body to deep stillness and calm. Many of us live our lives in a state of low-level tension. 
The more you practice restorative yoga the more you’ll learn to recognise and release this. During the practice you may enter a healing state known as the hypnagogic state in which experiences and emotions may surface, if this happens allow the body to rest and breathe through the experience. 
Don’t worry about equipment – you can adapt sofa cushions, rolled towels, duvets, scarves for eye-masks etc.
Wear warm, comfortable clothing; your body temperature is likely to drop as there is very little movement in this class.

Guidelines for classes

contact strip

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.

 


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.1465251_10151888816411156_770518128_n

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.

School Classes
What 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.
