During my career as a dancer, yoga helped me to heal a significant injury. Inspired by this I went on to train with many renowned yoga teachers. Yoga continues to teach me how to remain calm and kind no matter what challenges, changes and obstacles life throws at me. Dancing is when I feel most myself and most joyful. My aim is to pass on all that dance and yoga has given to me and continues to do so.
SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF YOGA & DANCE
MY YOGA CLASSES focus on where you are now and I will assist you to learn more about your breath, your alignment, your strengths, weaknesses, your flexibility and your state of mind. As a trained Shiatsu therapist I also bring in a knowledge of anatomy and Chinese Medicine to help you understand more about the workings of your body and mind. My dedication is to create a kind, fun and open learning environment. I believe yoga can be of benefit to anyone regardless of their age, fitness level or state of health.
MY DANCE CLASSES focus on having fun whilst getting fit and being creative. This is not ballet and not ballroom dance and is difficult to define. It is a combination of everything I have learned in the last thirty years and is now my own style. We start with a full body warm up and a focus on the breath, followed by some structured sequences and moving through the space. We might do some partner work and some improvisation depending on the group's wishes.
