Autumn Yoga  (Sept-Oct-Nov)

In this autumn series of classes, we choose practices that bring the body back into

equilibrium - such as back bends and twists. There is an emphasis on movement to

help shift physical & emotional blocks to open up to releasing & letting go.   The Lung & Large Intestine meridians also influence the choice of practices to be energizing for the lungs and clearing for the intestines.  In addition, and According to Ayurveda (Science of Life & sister science to Yoga), the VATA energy is high - this is erratic, changeable, quick, cooling & drying - so we temper these qualities with some warming and stablizing practices - in doing so - we prepare the body-mind for the coming season of winter.   Life is a natural cycle!

YOGA for Healthy Lower Backs
I offer this Specialised YHLB 12 week course, evidence based, from a large yoga research study with York University and funded by
Arthritis Research UK.     The positive results showing it to be safe and effective, were published in the Annals of Internal Medicine.   
The course teaches & motivates people how get moving again, with simple, gentle yoga, targeting back comfort, with postural improvements, mental focus and relaxation techniques.  Research proved long-term benefits for those who attended the 12 week course and continued practising at home for approx 30 minutes twice a week.

Kind words........

 

“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

"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 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

"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 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

"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
