‘It is not enough to realise that there is somewhere to go, you must also be really interested in taking the step.’
Exploring a personal practice is one way for you to deepen your understanding and relationship to yoga. A personal practice can enhance your life and bring about a greater sense of overall wellbeing, physically and emotionally.
Practising yoga on your own takes a certain level of dedication and focus. We need to carve a space in our busy daily routines where it can exist, a little like taking a step back from everything and giving ourselves time to adjust, re-adjust, think and move.
Over time an intimate relationship can form between your body, breath and mind. Then we start to learn about ourselves, because each day is different every time we move it’s as though a new rhythm occurs, we notice the changes in our breathing and in the way we feel.
A personal practice is designed to meet your own individual needs and goals and will not only enrich your bodily strength and wellbeing, it can go on to enhance your senses, relationships and your emotional state of mind.

I can say without hesitation, that 1:1 yoga sessions with Helen Roscoe have been incredibly helpful to me; my breathing has become more regulated and is something I have learnt to focus on. Helen has taught me to focus on exercises I find comfortable rather than those that are too challenging. Helen is also continuously assessing my needs and abilities which I find very reassuring. Anyone considering 1:1 yoga sessions with Helen shouldn’t hesitate, take a deep breath (she’ll show you how) and do it.
