YOGA FOR SLEEP
A short course
Sleep deprivation and stress often go hand in hand. We may have trouble falling sleep because we're worried and anxious, and then, because we didn't get enough sleep that makes us stressed the next day. By relieving tension in body and mind yoga can be an effective natural sleep remedy. Learn a series of postures, breath and relaxation techniques that can be help tackle restlessness and insomnia. No previous yoga experience needed.
Please email for course dates
Reduce back, neck and shoulder pain, increase energy, improve teamwork. These are just some of the benefits of yoga at work - even short 20 or 30 minute lunchtime classes. All that's needed is some free floorspace in a quiet area (or a Zoom account) and loose clothing.
If you would like to introduce yoga for your colleagues during the working day - face to face or on Zoom - please get in touch to discuss.
I've been practising yoga for nearly 18 years and, in June 2007, after four years of study, I qualified as a teacher with The British Wheel of Yoga. Learning never ends so I continue to study with prominent teacher trainers - completing a 12 month course in anatomy and structural integration in yoga with teacher-trainer Gary Carter (whose work is inspired by the distinctive approach of Italian teacher, Vanda Scaravelli). An eight week mindfulness course at the University of Oxford, a Diploma in Thai Yoga Massage and, in 2019, a foundation certificate in Yoga Therapy have brought new dimensions to my practice and my teaching.
"I hoped to gain overall flexibility. But you have actually helped me far more than that. I am very pleased with my improvement in flexibility over the past two years, and I've suffered fewer niggling injuries
from my usual sporting activities "
