I’m back from my honeymoon – thanks so much for the warm wishes, tweets, notes, cards and gifts from my fellow yogis and pilates peeps, you are so generous and kind! We had a wonderful time
I’m starting a new early evening class from next Thursday (June 4th 2015) in the Hunter’s Bar area of Sheffield (S11). If you are interested in coming along please do so and you can email me with any questions at [email protected] – I would also really appreciate it if you can help spread the word about this new class as I am still relatively new to Sheffield!
Here are the details:
Slow flowing vinyasa hatha yoga
Thursday evenings 6.45-7.45pm (starting from 4th June 2015)

About this class:
This class is suitable for those just starting out as well as those experienced in yoga who are looking for a practice of moderate intensity – my aim is to give you a nicely balanced physical practice which will both improve your strength, poise and flexibility, but also give time and space for attention to the breath (pranayama), and will include a short relaxation at the end of the session so that you leave feeling relaxed and calm. Hatha is a sanskrit word that encompasses all physical yoga but in the west is taken to mean a gentler form of yoga where poses are taught with focus on alignment and safety, and adaptations are given where possible for those new or with any injuries or ailments (the belief being yoga is for all!) Vinyasa means ‘sequence’ – so I will teach you individual poses which slowly flow through sequences and as the group gets more familiar with these sequences we can experiment with different rhythms and pace of flow – both of which offer great benefits. I will throw in different poses and variety in each class so your body doesn’t suffer from repetitive strain and you always have fun new challenges as well as the chance to deepen your awareness of the more foundational poses each week.
