She threw away her masks and put on her soul
Yoga classes, Workshops & Retreats in Berkhamsted and Ashridge Forest
Yoga is an inspirational journey, an embodied practice and a way of life, helping you to reveal your unique potential and connecting with who you really are beneath the masks and labels we place on ourselves. Would you like more awareness of the habitual patterns that block you? what keeps you stuck causing tension and stress? Begin to live in your body not just in your mind.
The goal is not to tie ourselves in knots, we're already tied in knots. The aim is to untie the knots in our hearts. The aim is to unite with the ultimate loving and peaceful power in the universe - Erich Schiffmann
My classes are friendly, nurturing and fun, open to everyone regardless of age, sex, shape, flexibility or where you are on your personal journey.
Physiological instruction, insightful readings/poetry and a healthy dose of humour are offered in harmony with expert tuition in all aspects yoga. Teachings are based on a profoundly rich heritage of the ancient traditions of yoga, tantra and meditation.
Classes are extremely varied, depending on the specific needs of students and themes such as the cycles of nature or the elements. Some will incorporate flow sequences using the rhythm of your breath and interconnecting postures (the “asanas”) Others will focus strongly on the correct alignment within specific postures, this cultivates strength and stamina and helps the body and mind expand to unlock deeply rooted stress and tension.
