I have been practising yoga for approximately 16years. As a Primary School Teacher I had a particular interest in the benefits of yoga for children therefore in June 2017 I completed a Yoga and Minfulness for Children course with Special Yoga in London. I then went on to complete my TeenYoga Diploma and I am currently moving into the 3rd year of British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) Level 4 Teaching Diploma. As such I teach two adult classes in Chesterfield however I also teach in school and deliver Yoga and Mindfulness INSET/staff training and well as workshops and classes as required.
My adult classes are a balance of yoga poses (asana), breathing and/or concentration practices and relaxation. We work on using the poses a to help release tension, improve strength, flexibility and balance as well as general health and wellbeing. The classes are based around the principles of Hatha yoga and, are mixed ability/suitable for beginners.
I truly believe yoga is beneficial for all and gives 'tools for life' whether through breathing practices, relaxation or asanas; as one of the children I worked with said 'we are like robots and yoga is the oil'.
My current classes are -
Monday Evenings 5.30-6.30 @ Parish Centre, Stonegravels
Thursdays 19:00 - 20:30 @ Hasland Methodist Church
