One-to-One yoga

Experience a deeply healing approach to yoga in a safe space that’s just for you. 

Not only will you learn to relax at the deepest level – you’ll explore how to move beyond the beliefs and behaviour patterns that may be holding you back from healing.

Whether you’re affected by trauma, stress, mental health difficulties or menstrual health problems, I will guide you through a tailored programme of yoga practices to help heal your symptoms and restore your energy by integrating your mind, body and soul. Alternatively, try my 'Intro to Yoga' series, designed to enable you to learn the basics of yoga and build your confidence and knowledge. 

Discover deep and nourishing rest

I mainly use two types of yoga in my one-to-ones. 

Restorative yoga helps to completely relax the body by encouraging the muscles to soften and release. This creates space for a fuller and deeper breath, which in turn invites the mind to become more quiet and steady and so the nervous system becomes more balanced and we are able to change the way we think and act.. 

Yoga nidra helps us to experience and tolerate deep feelings and emotions, no matter how overwhelming we believe them to be. It is a tool of self-inquiry, which helps us to more away from old beliefs and conditioning about who we think we are. Whilst in the state of deep relaxation we can create new life-affirming thought patterns. 

Both restorative yoga and yoga nidra are shown by research to be effective for PTSD, chronic pain, anxiety and depression. By activating the parasympathetic nervous system, we become relaxed and calm, and by practicing pratyahara, the art of taking our attention inward, we discover a place within us where we are not always anxious or depressed, a place of peace, ease and self acceptance. 

What can one-to-one yoga help with?

You may be experiencing:

  • Trauma or grief
  • Prolonged stress

    I just want you to know, that your teaching along with my first teacher changed my life. You helped me to find a proactive way to handle my depression. Something no anti depressants have managed to do. You made me see that yoga is so much more than doing different positions, which was my pre misconceptions.

    Restorative yoga made me actually relax, something I hadn’t properly in years.

    Hearing you talk today, I thought that it isn’t just yoga which can have a profound affect on a person, but the actual teacher. And I realised, I needed to tell you that you, have made a huge impact on my life, and my future as I plan to do the 200 hr course in November.

    Please keep on what you are doing, you are a true earth angel.
