You don't need to be suffering with a bad back to attend this workshop. This workshop will help with flexibility and strength - which is key to keeping your back healthy. It's a wonderful opportunity to take some time out for some well deserved self care.
Do you value a healthy back? or do you experience back pain on a daily basis or have a feeling of discomfort from time to time? Chronic back pain has become an increasing issue in modern society. This workshop will explore yoga as a powerful healing tool for your body and mind.
You will be gently guided through simple and restful poses to release tension in the back and calm the nervous system as well as strength-building poses for stability. You will discover the power of the breath and its effectiveness on the body and mind. And as mental tensions can be held in the body creating stress and pain, the session will end with a deep relaxation connecting you to a deep sense of inner peace.

From the age of 19 I was a dedicated practitioner of T’ai Chi Ch’uan (Lee family Style) for 10 years. After which, my life-path changed and I turned towards yoga. Over the following 20 years or so, yoga has helped me physically, helping to overcome injuries and general wear and tear. But more importantly, it has helped me mentally. Especially through times of hormonal imbalance, mood swings, episodes of anxiety, depression and the menopause.
Over the years I have practiced many different styles of yoga with wonderful and incredibly knowledgeable teachers, developing a committed and continuous practice that includes postures (asanas), breathing (pranayama), deep relaxation (yoga nidra), chanting (mantra) and meditation. My practice also includes yoga retreats, workshops, courses, satsangs (gatherings with Q&A) and kirtans (music & chanting).
I have been teaching yoga since 2015. My teaching focuses largely on the importance of breathing techniques and linking it with each posture. In time, this becomes a moving meditation; creating emotional balance, mental clarity and well-being.
