The natural comfort and joy of our being is expressed when the body becomes steady.
Expect to explore postures in a creative way and connect to the breath as your friend. Learn to fully relax and find stillness whilst enjoying some philosophy to maintain your curiosity.
It is important to me that yoga is accessible and inclusive to anyone who may wish to start. I teach an approach that is focused around the breath, we move within it’s capabilities because it will be the first to tell you if something is too much, or not enough. This is how we begin to learn about ourselves.
We connect through our movement and breath in postures that are carefully designed and adapted to move you towards something that is more subtle.
After each sequence or part of the practice we offer ourselves time to observe the shifts that have occurred within us. The breath allows us to observe our response.
Then we give ourselves time to listen more inwardly based on our experience. What do we feel in this precise moment?
Letting go can be difficult! There is often so much tension both physical and emotional that we hold on to. Take this as an opportunity to let go and breathe freely. Teach yourself how to relax, so that you can remember the feeling and revisit that place again and again.
Finally we reflect. What do I need more of? What do I need less of? In order to move through life with ease.
I started to practice yoga with Helen when I first moved to the village of Broadbottom in 2016 and have been going to her classes since. I had tried yoga before and found this is the right style for me with emphasis on breathing and movement. The philosophy behind the yoga practice also speaks to me focusing on the moment and stay positive. Helen is a lovely teacher and always ready for a chat about yoga or life in general.
