Welcome to the website of Linda Allam - Senior Hatha Yoga Teacher, based in West Cumbria, UK
Linda has a wealth of experience, with over 30 years of teaching experience
Qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga, Sivananda Yoga Vedanta Tradition, Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs,
Mindfulness Facilitator and
she has over 25 years experience as a Qualified Homeopath LICH
I offer a style of Yoga that is mindful, gentle & restorative - encouraging a healing pathway to bring balance in our system. It incorporates several styles of yoga and follows a seasonal theme to help balance the energies of the season so we go with the flow of nature.
In a typical class, you may possibly practice a combination of Centering, Grounding & Breathing practices, Classic Hatha yoga postures, Energy Medicine Yoga, Yin poses, Restorative, Therapeutic Viniyoga, Somatics, Qigong, Guided Relaxations, iRest, Yoga Nidra, Mindfulness & Meditation -
all of which I practice myself.
The pace is meditative, emphasizing a peaceful and calming approach to access body and mind.
We may hold poses longer, taking several rounds of breath in each pose, instead of moving quickly with each breath; the transitions between postures are a little slower to encourage a mindful presence.
I encourage exploration to connect with the body in a deeper way and this is accessed through a mindful approach and connection to the breath. Finally, we come to rest, a time & space of letting go of remaining tensions of body & mind, & come to a place of surrender, stillness & ease, a place of just Being.
Everyone is welcome to join my Mindful Yoga sessions where you can give yourself permission to slow down and go with the flow to find yourself. This style is good for beginners & more experienced practitioners who feel like slowing it down and sinking deeper into their practice.
So if you are looking for a friendly, relaxed, small group atmosphere, with practices that work on your whole Being, body-heart-mind, you are invited to come and join us for ZOOM or Live In-Person Classes.
Please take a look through the website, contact me by email or telephone me for a chat.

"Linda's classes are wonderful,
she is an accomplished practitioner with plenty of patience and offers us easier variations for those
of us who struggle!
I like the holistic approach, reminding us we're
aiming to align our body-heart-mind.
Every class is different, Linda designs the programme to reflect the energies of the season
and to build on our abilities from week to week."
"Linda changes her classes on a seasonally and monthly basis. The classes are friendly and totally non-competitive, everyone feels comfortable at their own level.
Her breathing and relaxation practice settles the mind and you always feel so much better after her class.
"Linda is a fantastic yoga teacher.
She is extremely knowledgeable about what she teaches.
It's the best part of my week,
I always feel like my body has worked out and
improved yet feeling very relaxed.
Linda has a blog which gives more information about
what is being taught in the session.
I would highly recommend anyone to give it a go"
