I qualified as a Yoga teacher in January 2020 having trained with Dan Peppiatt of Yoga Like Water https://www.yogalikewater.com/. My converted studio at Garlands was literally finished just as lockdown happened. I was just about to hit the button to tell a few people about my classes when I was shut down before I’d even opened!
Not to worry as the studio saw a lot of action as I practised there myself and joined zoom classes with the wonderful Louise who runs Jala Flow in Sidmouth. Her classes are excellent, she is an amazing teacher and I highly recommend her online classes – Jala Flow. I also did some very good sessions with Tina Jeffery on a Saturday morning, as the business was closed and I wasn’t doing changeover. Tina also teaches aerial yoga, which if you haven’t tried, I’d definitely give it a go when the Topsham studio re-opens – Tina Jeffery Yoga.
I teach beginners and intermediate students on a one to one basis or for two people. With the holiday cottages I can also provide relaxing, self-catering mid week or weekend yoga breaks from November to March. My teaching qualification is recognised by the Independent Yoga Network and I’m fully insured to hold space for your private practise. Having recently completed Couch to 5K we can also start this whilst you’re staying with me. The flat Seaton Esplanade is a great spot for running with a sea view.
Beginners Yoga – if you’ve never done yoga before this is a general introduction to the practise. You may be a complete beginner or want to build up your confidence before joining a larger, regular yoga class at a gym or studio. Private classes or up to two people.
Breathe and Flow – a slow flow class which focuses on stretching poses moving with the breath. After the flow section of the class the focus moves to yin poses which are held for longer, followed by relaxation at the end. Private classes or up to two people.
Breathe and Release – a yin class where some poses are held for two minutes or longer to focus on releasing tension from your body to enable relaxation. The class ends with meditation to allow feelings of well-being. Private classes or up to two people.
Breathe and Relax – yoga nidra is practised lying down with little movement. It is said to be the ultimate relaxation, bringing balance and health back to the body, mind and emotions. Best practised in the evenings I can do a private class or have up to three people.
With gyms opening up today, post the lockdown, my space is safe and clean with enhanced cleaning protocols being followed (just like we’re doing with the cottages).
So if you’ve never tried yoga and want to see what it’s all about give me a call – 07817 934903.
STOP PRESS – you can even combine yoga with a staycation – The Beach House one bed cottage has availability for a week from Saturday 22nd August……
