Suitable for all: pregnant ladies welcome from the second trimester onwards
This style of Yoga is a non-competitive form of Hatha Yoga; it facilitates deep releases on all levels (physical, emotional, energetic and spiritual) and is accessible to anyone of any age, shape or size.
The practice is primarily interested in freeing the breath and spine together with a sense of grounding or yielding to the earth. Focussing on the breath together with an attentive, inquisitive mind allows you to be kind to yourself and listen to your bodies needs, allowing you to become your own teacher. It is an individual and unique approach for each person, which means ‘one posture fits all’ is not the case, each one of us is different, so we need to work differently to allow space and freedom to be found.
This approach facilitates change and enables you to experience a peaceful space within, thus resulting in a less stressed body/mind, good health and improved posture.
Caroline (BWY dip)
I started practicing Iyengar Yoga in 1997. I have since changed my focus to a practice that revolves around releasing tension, freeing the breath and working from the spine. I have worked with a number of Vanda Scaravelli inspired teachers, and continue my personal practice along these lines.
Teachers I have worked extensively with are Gary Carter and Peter Blackaby. In 2002 I embarked on the British Wheel of Yoga Foundation Course. I then completed the 3 year BWY Diploma course in May 2005. I have been teaching since July 2002. In Dec 2006 I also completed the 2.5 year teacher training course with Gary Cater at Natural Bodies.
I find I am drawn to anatomy and physiology, and a way of working that facilitates change in mind and body. My classes are suitable for all levels of experience from beginner to the more experienced student.
