Elizabeth has trained with the British Wheel of Yoga. Her teaching style is very gentle with an emphasis on safety.
'Yoga unites the physical body with the mind and breath. Yoga enabled me to physically and emotionally release during a tough time of my life. It has helped on a journey of self-realisation, becoming aware of the physical body and its limitations. I began to push my interest in yoga further by completing the foundation course with the British Wheel of Yoga. During this time, I became increasingly interested in the philosophy of yoga and started to explore bhakti yoga and karma yoga. It became apparent that more and more in my daily life could be related to yoga in some way. I took this as a sign to continue my studies with the British Wheel of Yoga on the 500hrs teacher training diploma. My style of teaching encourages students to listen to their own body. I teach with an emphasis on safety and “doing less” incorporating principles of yin and hatha. I enjoy working with beginners and those who are experiencing stress in any manifestation (physically and mentally).'
What to expect at a class with Elizabeth:
'Classes usually last for 60 minutes. We start on the floor and spend some time setting an intention for practice. We then prepare the body for practice with relevant movements. This is followed by a series of postures and movements which are relevant to the class. Each class will have a different key posture or theme. The class always ends with a relaxation. Beginners classes take a slower and more gentle approach, there is always room for movement and your version of the postures. Yoga isn’t always about the shape, it is how it feels in your individual body! One to one classes can be tailored to your needs and can include asana (postures) pranayama (breathing practices) mantra (chanting) meditation and relaxation.'
Class time: Friday 12.30
