Make Time for Yourself

Yoga to connect with your body and calm your mind

Yoga For Life 

The practice of yoga teaches us about ourselves, who we are at our core and how we choose to function in the world. 

Yoga guides us to manage life with grace and balance. 

I started teaching yoga 20 years ago when I was going through a big change in my life. Yoga became the sanctuary I was desperately seeking at the time. It gave me the space I needed to rediscover myself and develop an inner peace that has never left me.

I chose to study the Iyengar style of yoga because it emphasises a stronger discipline on physical alignment. It can be said that the mind can be trained by the body, if you train the body, the mind will follow. 

For a huge portion of our life, we are juggling between work and life to find a happy balance. We need to manage our time, energy and resources carefully so we do not lose our balance. 

Yoga gives us the physical and mental capacity to prioritise what is most important right now in our life and choose in favour of that. Yoga gives us strength, stamina and flexibility,  mentally and physically. It teaches us to be strong patient, flexible and adaptable as we try to juggle our family, friends, work, finances and health.

Yoga is a transformational life tool. 

“Yoga does not just change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees.”

~ B.K.S. Iyengar ~

About me and my Teaching Style.

Feel supported in your yoga journey

As a Yoga Teacher, I strive to create a sacred space for my students in their practice. They come to  yoga each week to find a sanctuary within themselves, where they can fully let go of all their physical and mental stress and leave feeling renewed and revived.

All levels are welcome to my classes. I am committed to will helping  you reach your own personal goal, whatever that may be for you. Each and every one of my students receives personal attention and correction, where needed. Iyengar Yoga is all about correct alignment and attention to detail. This is a very important part of my teaching. I like to ensure that you are always working safely and within your personal limits.  

Make yoga a sacred place for you to be each week.

About me, Suzy 

I began my own personal yoga journey in 2002 and commenced a  500 hour, Iyengar style yoga training course . The Karuna Yoga Teaching Diploma Certificate was an intense two year training programme, with Ruth White Yoga  in Cheam, Surrey. We spent many long weekends on 4 day retreats where we experienced teaching from many different expert teachers  including Anatomy and Physiology, Philosophy, Nutrition, Ayurvedic Medicine,  Mindfulness and even a Fire Walk in Edinburgh. Ruth White trained with the master himself, BKS Iyengar, in Poona, India, where she achieved her Teacher Training certificate with him.

One to One Private Yoga Sessions

I offer one-to-one sessions of yoga, which are mainly held on zoom but if possible, face to face is also an option.  Singe sessions are £75. 

Whether you’re a complete beginner looking to learn the basics and build confidence in yourself or an experienced practitioner looking to to refine your technique and achieve specific health and fitness goals, this tailored approach will help you make effective progression.

One-to-one private sessions are hugely beneficial if you :

  • are looking for a tailored practice that addresses your specific needs
  • have any specific health concerns, injuries, or chronic conditions
  • are looking to achieve a deeper sense of calm and reduce stress
  • initially feel self-conscious in a group setting
  • want to build your confidence with the postures and create a personal schedule

What to expect during your session

One of the key benefits of private sessions is that it offers flexibility in timing; you can choose sessions each week that work with your weekly schedule, without the constraints of a rigid timetable.

Following the completion of a short health questionnaire, to find out about your health history and your goals and preferences, we will arrange an initial consultation. Following that, each 60 minute session will incorporate a blend of lying down, standing and sitting postures, inversions, if this is part of your own practice, and some breathing, meditation and relaxation. Everything is tailored to your individual needs and you will work completely at your own pace and personal ability.

Please email me to find out more or to book a session.

The connection between yoga and mindfulness

Yoga teaches us how to pay attention to what is going on in the body and how to keep it well aligned so that it improves posture and prevents injury. The presence it brings is profound and healing also to the state of mind. It brings peace. 

Many people become interested in mindfulness once they start yoga. One great way to learn mindfulness is to attend a short Mindfulness Programme where many of the tools are taught in a simple and easy way. 

Please Join us for our Mindfulness Workshops or give me a call to find out more about it.
