I offer private yoga classes in Crouch End, at my own home or (if you are a local) at yours. There are many advantages to learning yoga and somatic movement one to one. The work we do is exactly matched to your individual needs, much more than is possible in a group class.
Many people choose private classes as a way of understanding and alleviating pain. In the first class, we will look at your static posture and go through a movement assessment. This enables us to understand the patterns of tension in your musculo-skeletal system. Also, we will discover how accidents, movement habits and surgeries can be affecting your movement and posture, even decades after the original occurrence. We also look in detail at your feet and how they may be affecting your pelvis, hips, spine and lower back.
I use techniques from Anatomy in Motion, Hanna Somatics and the Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs Course. However, it’s important to remember that you are the expert on your body. No-one knows it like you do, not even the best osteopath on the planet. My job is to guide you towards understanding your body and mind more deeply so that you can understand your body’s messages (aches, pains, tweaks, twinges, lightness, spaciousness and ease) and respond to them accordingly. In time, when the body’s messages are heard and responded to, there is often a lessening of pain and discomfort and an increase in comfort and mobility.
Yoga is an incredibly healing practice that can support you in your journey in life, with all its inherent challenges. The scientific study of yoga is now very common and there is a lot of evidence to show that simple breathing and awareness practices are of enormous value in reducing stress and it’s related problems such as anxiety, insomnia, fatigue, as well as pain.
The practice is accessible and adaptable for everyone and it helps to foster peace and inner strength in living with cancer treatment and other life-changing diagnoses, such as MS, fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome. If mobility is reduced, for whatever reason, there is still a wealth of yoga practice that can be explored and enjoyed seated in a chair.
