Positive change begins with increased awareness .. awareness comes from enquiry. The guidance of an experienced teacher can be invaluable.
YOGA translates as integration, unity. Its practices are many and diverse .. like us! It offers new choices, improved health, a greater sense of wellbeing and the potential to enjoy life to the full.
I am not your average yoga teacher but I am serious about the benefits that movement practices bring. There will be a way to practise for each of us and my main interest is to work with clients individually, guiding them in exploring practices that are safe and effective, relevant and useful.
AYUR is life and VEDA is knowledge. Ayurveda informs the decisions we make in day-to-day life, making it possible to restore and maintain good health, live in harmony with our environment and prevent future imbalances.
An ayurvedic consultation will explore your individual way of being, your particular vulnerabilities and how to best support yourself through diet and lifestyle.
aka Awareness Through Movement and Functional Integration, Feldenkrais principles have numerous applications, and the lessons are great start if you are new to regular movement practice. Gentle guided movements for groups or as an individual aim to improve spontaneous elegant function and performance in all that we do and all that we are.
