RELAX+MEDITATE 

Theme of Autumn YOGA

Keeping the Balance:  Routine, regularity & discipline – key words for any Yoga practice and an essential part of

balancing the VATA energies which predominate this season, like the qualities of Air, Space, Erratic, Changeable,

Quick, Cooling, Drying.

 

The Meridians of Lung & Large Intestine are highlighted this season.  Both these meridians are organs of release,

letting go of the toxins from the opposite ends of our body and specifically for the lungs as they hold grief.

The core of our yoga practice is to breath properly and the benefits can be enhanced by powerful pranayama

practices – which is the key to the entire body-mind connection.

 

So, we take a slow steady approach to our yoga practice which is grounding, nurturing & detoxifying; we incorporate practices that alleviates stiffness that comes with the colder, windier & unpredictable weather; and use essential practices of proper breathing, relaxation & meditation to calm, focus & soothe the mind, encouraging the sense of letting go.

“I really enjoyed todays Restorative Yoga workshop.  Having 3 hours dedicated to this subject was deeply relaxing and such a treat.  I came away feeling totally refreshed - a new person and ready to face the world!”         SP

"I am just emailing to let you know my progress. Since I returned from holiday my recovery has continued to progress. I am continuing doing my stretching and exercises twice a day and have a lot more movement over the last few months. Over the past month I have been able to complete swimming and short runs which I never imagined possible this time last year. The feeling in both of my legs has also returned. So my plan is to keep as I am doing and see how I do over the next few months.

 

I would just like to thank you for everything you have done for me. I feel coming to see you was the real turning point in my recovery and I wouldn't have been able to reach this point without being more open minded and learning different techniques which has been down to you.  I really enjoyed my time with you, many thanks"

HR (attended 1to1 back care)

"I am feeling the benefit of the 12 weeks YHLB course because I now know an appropriate posture to relieve my back pain.  I find the handouts very useful as they give a structure to follow at home as I usually find it difficult to make up routines.  I have always liked your teaching style and appreciate the way you encourage us as inidividuals with personal feedback" 

TL attended the 12 week Healthy Lower Back Course

"The 3 hour sessions goes surprisingly quickly, giving time for a well rounded yoga practice, without any rush. 

I also like the seasonal themes these afternoons have, so today was just what I needed on a proper winters day"  HS

"I can tell that Linda has a wealth of yoga experience and knowledge.  She is not just going through the motions, she puts her heart into the teaching and I appreciate that, it makes a difference".  LS

“I have been coming to Linda's classes for years and think she is a fantastic teacher,  always something new to learn as she changes the practices every month, so there is a lot of variety.  I really get a lot out of it, thats why I come every week, I feel so much better for it"                        VP

" Having 1to1 sessions with Linda has helped me not only physically, but I have become aware of a deeper conscious mind level and the effect has been quite amazing, I even surprised myself"  RB
