With over ten years experience as a Yoga Therapist, with membership in the BWY, CNHC and IAYT, I currently run several Yoga Therapy classes throughout the Bury area.
I offer classes for the Over 50s, classes for students with Multiple Sclerosis, and also a more general Yoga Therapy class to encourage good health and wellbeing.
I try to make the sessions as individual as possible and try to assist the specific needs of each student. A wide range of supportive equipment is available in every sessions to help make each posture comfortable, relaxing, and accessible to all.
Individual 1-2-1 sessions are also available in your home for a more familiar and relaxing environment. This is often more appropriate for students when helping manage individual symptoms and more specific health conditions.
These sessions cover all aspects of yoga, focusing on postures, breathing, relaxation, and sound and meditation when it is relevant and effective to do so. Each session is relatively gentle, focusing on releasing the joints, especially the spine. We begin most sessions on the floor centring down, warming up and then progress to seated and standing postures before ending with a relaxation
