Breath, Health & Wellbeing Classes – respiratory health is closely connected to our state of mind, to our hormonal and immune systems, and our ability to manage mental and physical challenges. Effective, healthy breathing promotes a restful state of mind and better sleep. The specific sequence of yoga, breath work and relaxation in these classes will encourage better breathing and strengthen your immune system.
Private classes for one or two people, suitable for Beginners. Thurs/Fri £40 – 45 minutes
SPA FACIAL & SKINCARE WORKSHOPS – Prepare for your new normal with an overhaul of your skin care and make up regime. Hannah demonstrates a step-by step online sequence which you can follow with your own products to give yourself a top-class facial treatment at home. Then get your make up bag out and we can talk through what needs to go, and what needs refreshing. Invite a friend and share the experience via Zoom! Private classes for one or two people. Thurs/Fri £40 – 45 minutes.
Touch Therapy – this type of touch differs from normal, daily activities such as hugging someone, or helping them to wash & dress. This type of touch is therapeutic: it benefits the physical body, soothes the nervous system, eases the mind and calms the emotions. Touch Therapy can address issues that fundamentally affect our quality of life, things like loneliness, low self-esteem, anxiety and stress. For the giver, these classes teach you how to deliver a simple touch therapy massage (with or without PPE). Classes begin in August, every other Wednesday 11 am £15 per 60-minute session for 2 people, so you can both practice your skills and enjoy a massage during each session. Private group classes can also be arranged.

Guruji B.K.S Iyengar said:
In order to transform people from the physical level to the mental and spiritual level, the healing aspect of yoga has the major role. For many, yoga is a science and a philosophy, but it is only those who practice who know it is an art. Healing is an art and one has to go deep into the art to understand the changes taking place while you are taking a breath, while your are working, while you are moving, while you are sitting. One has to practice with accuracy, methodically, mathematically calculating how one has to sit, how to do the pose, how to stretch the leg. Then the reactions which take place in one’s own body have to be experimented with friends or students, to see if the feedback is the same as we got in our own body. If the feedback is identical then we can take it for granted that this is a healing process, which we can use. So that is why a yoga teacher has a tremendous responsibility.
