Yoga in Liverpool

Yoga helps us really feel the deep connection between body and mind.

Our posture, facial expression, muscular tension or relaxation all affect how we feel and think. And our thoughts, emotions and experiences all affect our body.

But often we are so busy thinking - planning, worrying, ruminating - that we forget we even have a body. Until that is, it goes wrong.

Through practices like yoga and mindful movement we can learn to not only appreciate our body more, but gain greater awareness of its subtle signals that something is wrong. In this way, we learn how to re-integrate body and mind for our greater health and wellbeing.

I have a background of more than 30 years practising yoga and almost 20 years teaching it. I bring this experience to my mindfulness practice and teaching. As I have continued to explore I have become more and more interested in the therapeutic uses of yoga and of the simple yet profound nature of mindful movement.
I aim to respond to the needs of my class members - some of whom have been coming to yoga for many years. My current focus is on supporting people to have a strong, stable and well-functioning body as they get older. Together we experiment with how to maintain and build strength and mobility in a safe and gradual way drawing on such influential and inspirational teachers as Lesley Dike, Peter Blackaby and Donna Farhi.


Merseyside yoga classes

I currently offer a face-to-face day-time session and an evening on-line class as well as an on-line chair yoga session. A typical class includes physical practices or "asanas" of yoga including movements to warm up the body, postures to build and maintain good function and breathing practices, meditation and relaxation to calm and quieten the mind and release tension from the body.

Sessions vary from week to week , sometimes focussing more on physical postures, sometimes incorporating more breath work or meditation. I aim to create a welcoming, supportive atmosphere and encourage everyone to take their time to explore how yoga can best benefit them. My guiding principle is that yoga is a means to help us connect more deeply with ourselves and others so that we can take what we learn on the mat into our everyday lives.

Above all I hope people will enjoy themselves and come away feeling relaxed, restored and revitalised.

Chair Yoga

Chair yoga is a gentle and safe option for anyone with an injury or limited mobility.

It doesn’t matter how old you are (we all know it’s how old you feel anyway!) or whether or not you consider yourself fit, everyone can benefit from yoga.

Classes are taken at a slow, relaxed pace with emphasis given to learning how to work with the breath and mobilise stiff areas.

Chair yoga can help relieve arthritis, rheumatism and other conditions that affect mobility as well as decreasing mental tension, calming nerves and promoting better sleep.

We work slowly, with awareness - and hopefully enjoy ourselves too! Above all, the classes provide a chance to meet others in a relaxed, friendly environment."I enjoyed everything about the course and learned useful stretches for work, advice on posture and overall feel better."

"I didn’t find the exercises too difficult, but they really helped. I am much more conscious about how I should be holding myself, sitting, breathing..."

"It has been a very beneficial set of sessions for a beginner. I feel I have increased flexibility and a greater awareness of the benefits of relaxation."
