Yoga one-to-one classes and small groups in Islington
I teach Hatha Yoga individual classes at Barnsbury Therapy Rooms, Hatha is gentle, subtle practice, working with the body’s natural function rather than striving to attain the perfect posture.
My approach is influenced by the work of Vanda Scaravelli who taught that release in the body can be found by attention to how we respond to gravity, and how we breathe as we move. With these core principals of ‘”grounding and breathing,” we learn about where we hold ourselves, where we can release and how to find a balance between the two.
How I work:
Working one to one can be useful if you want some extra support in your practice, if you are dealing with an injury or illness, or if you’re new to the practice. Yoga is particularly beneficial if you have a specific issue with hip, knee, shoulder or back pain, or other postural /breathing constraints. We tailor an individual practice programme for you and work together on it over a succession of weeks.
Individual session last 75 minutes. A minimum course of 6 classes is suggested.
