For more about the style of yoga I teach, see my blog post on being inspired by Scaravelli.
Many people now realise our mental and emotional health is linked to our physical health. Yoga calms the nervous system and re-balances the hormones via the endocrine system, leaving us feeling simultaneously at ease and energised. With Yoga, we combine breath, movement, posture and attention to create powerful changes in the body and mind. With Mindfulness Meditation we develop calm and insight leading to a meaningful and purposeful life. Join me in this exploration.
I also teach yoga workshops for anxiety and depression, see EVENTS for details.
I also lead Dharma Dance; a wonderful integration of meditation, yoga and dance; my three loves.
Dharma Dance that has no structured steps or choreography. It is a practice using music and movement to find our essence as expressed through the body. If we tune in to how our body wants to move; in harmony with the dance, we encounter connection and meaning; love in all its guises. This is possible when we show up, let go, move and breathe; when we embrace the moment we are in without agenda or judgement. Music and guidance will carry us through this journey. Dancing consciously gives us the opportunity to feel what is going on right now in our body and to express what is. Gabrielle Roth, founder of the Conscious Dance practice, 5 Rhythms, said, “the quickest was to still the mind is to move the body.”
This Dharma Dance practice leads us into meditative awareness, planting seeds of intention, exploring breath, structured and fluid movements of Yoga Asana that journey beneath the surface of the mind. This is more about how it viscerally feels, less about the form of postures. Music helps us transition into free movement, moving from the inside out, expressing our essential selves. A shared journey into rhythmically induced meditation. This liberates our creative life force and cultivates embodied freedom. see EVENTS
I also incorporate yoga and mindful movement into individual sessions, meditation retreats and yatras and psychology workshops.
