Yoga in Pond Square @ Highgate United Reformed Church
Dec 18 @ 1:05 pm – 1:55 pm

Weekly, drop-in class – suitable for all levels, complete beginners welcome. Mats provided. Free parking. I teach Hatha yoga (with Yin, Scarivelli and Pilates influences) – a gentle style that still delivers strength and flexibility in a safe manner and I incorporate pranayama (breathing exercises) into all my classes. Classes are light-hearted, fun and enjoyable.

I tailor classes towards the needs of our modern society. For instance for computer users, to try and neutralise some of the negative effects of office work such as releasing hunched neck/shoulders, stretching the spine, releasing the hips and hamstrings after long periods of sitting. Hopefully, after each class, you will feel relaxed, re-energised, de-stressed, calm and a little bit stronger and stretchier! Come every week or just turn up to the occasional class.

I am well versed in the safety aspects of yoga and can provide modifications or alternatives to poses for anyone with injuries or medical conditions. I have public liability insurance and am a member of the British Wheel of Yoga. Check out my website for testimonials. I also teach private classes in your own home – contact me for details.

I also run a Thursday evening class 7.15pm to 8.30pm (£12) at Holly Lodge Community Centre, 30 Makepeace Avenue, London N6 6HL – but you’ll need to book in with me for this one as spaces are limited.
