The breath is key, intending to create a serene, meditative state in the practitioner. For more information: Yoga Approach

Testimonials

 

"I want to tell you that I really look forward to your online yoga classes every week and feel better for them.


It's easier than going out to go to yoga! 

We are very lucky that  you come into our homes every week to give your expertise,

so thank you very much"

Jilly Brockway, Frome

 

" The Zoom yoga classes are so much more enjoyable and powerful than i expected.  In fact, in some ways, I find them more powerful than when we meet, maybe because I am able to put 100% into the practice - physically, mentally and from the heart - it is much more of a meditative practice."

 

Helena, Frome

"I love being in your class.

By the end I feel awash with

relaxation & happy hormones."

"The key to opening is trust and love."

 

"It is important to honour our vulnerability and recognize that we each need a trusting situation in which to work with the deepest feelings that arise within us...

We can melt our difficulties with love. We can't batter them down, but we can dissolve them."

 

- Jack Kornfield
