So, you’ve read or heard some good things about #Yoga, or even some things that you aren’t sure about. Maybe you are keen to join a class OR you are still on the fence about it all due to one, or several reasons? Sound familiar? Keep reading and maybe something below will resonate, and hopefully help you to feel that you CAN AND WILL come along to a Yoga class. I remember the first ever public Yoga class I went to, and believe me I talked myself out of it many times until I e
Maybe you’ve heard of the more common benefits of a regular #yoga practice; improved flexibility, weight loss, better breathing- but what other benefits does it have that you might not have considered? Yoga is much more than some physical movements and #breathing on a mat, and you might have started to, or start to notice how a regular practice can have a #positive impact in different ways in your everyday life off the mat. 1.

If you are a regular #yoga class goer, or have been home practising and learning about Yoga yourself, you will no doubt have heard, and also know of #mantra and #chanting. Possibly the most well known of all being #AUM or OM. But what is it all about? Is everyone a bit loopy sat there saying these strange foreign sounding words and phrases with their eyes closed, some swaying from side to side?! Mantra is #energy, #vibration, #sound. Simply put, Mantra is chanting of words or
I've been to many #yoga classes in the past few years, some with #music and some without. Some with some quite interesting music choices (in my opinion), but should Yoga really be practised to music? For me it's a personal choice and opinion, and as with #life, in classes as a teacher, you can't and won't always please everyone and be to everyone's taste. Music is very #emotive, it can take us back to and remind us of certain places, times, people. Some that may invoke #feeli
