Welcome! My name is Julia. My mission is to encourage people to move more. I especially enjoy teaching people who are dealing with stress, aches, stiffness, injuries or ailments. That is most people these days! There’s no need to be able to touch your toes or stand on your head to feel the wide-ranging benefits of yoga. All you need to do is come to class and enjoy breathing and moving in a comfortable and enjoyable way.
Once you start, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without yoga in your life 🙂
Some students and I recently appeared on ITV’s Tonight Programme to talk about the amazing Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs Course. This 12-week course of gentle yoga practice is a proven way to alleviate lower back pain. Classes are based on the largest scientific trial of yoga to date, funded by Arthritis Research UK. You will learn techniques to help you keep pain free, even once the course is over. The sequences are adapted to suit your individual back symptoms. Click here book onto a course starting after the Easter holidays.
This style of yoga is a blend of ideas and practices that I’ve come across on my own healing journey. Yoga, Hanna Somatics and Anatomy in Motion help to alleviate pain and muscle imbalance. Additionally, Yoga practice helps us to manage stress and find clarity and peace. The cultivation of a meditative awareness is just what we need to thrive in these crazy times. We touch upon yoga philosophy, meditation and movement of prana (energy/breath). Small groups and a friendly atmosphere give you the space to share thoughts and ask questions.
