From personal experience and especially as an HSP (highly sensitive person), I’ve encountered how the mind can influence and impact the body. My continued yoga training has focused heavily on how emotions can be stored within the body. That’s why my practices are centred around how yoga feels rather than what it looks like in a bid to help others connect to their inner workings.
Classes suit all abilities but in particular beginners. I focus heavily on mindfulness, pranayama (breathing) and finish with nature-inspired guided relaxations.
Most people know yoga as physical exercise but it’s so much more. It’s an ancient tradition with rich philosophy and history. The word yoga is translated into ‘union’ and can mean a union of the mind, the body and the reality around us. During a class with me, yoga can mean somewhere to stretch, strengthen, breathe, rest and emotionally release.
During the summer we take to the great outdoors in and around Llangollen. Indulging in nature’s energy above and below, to rest and recharge whilst raising money for charity.
Find me canalside at the world heritage site of the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct in Trevor, and on the grounds of the stunning Plas Newydd in Llangollen.
Are you holidaying around Llangollen? Perhaps you have a birthday, hen-do or some other special occasion you’d like to celebrate?
I teach private yoga parties for up to 10 people in your holiday accommodation or I can provide a studio venue. Fancy getting outside too? I host walking and yoga where we’ll explore the gentle slopes of the Dee Valley.
Join me in an inclusive and quiet space usually with my support labrador Bel for gentle flowing movements and breathing exercises to calm anxiety, aid sleep and increase mobility.
To bring the gifts of yoga to those who wish to benefit from the practice but would not consider themselves able to do conventional yoga because of age, skillset, injuries or lack of confidence.
Yoga Nidra is one of my favourite meditations. There’s always candles, blankets, cushions and plenty of cosiness.
Yoga Nidra isn’t about clearing the mind. It requires the listener to pay attention through a set of instructions which include: a rotation of bodily awareness, breathing and mantra. It’s perfect for those who can’t switch off who sleep poorly.
Yes! My classes are made for those who’ve no prior experience. Equally all abilities can join in. My aim is to always reinforce the yoga asana (posture) foundations for safe and enjoyable practice. As for the mindfulness and meditation aspect, we could all use the practice!
A mat (or a towel), blocks (or cushions) and a blanket are the perfect tools for a comfortable practice. You can add in a yoga strap (or a tie or belt) too. Oswestry yoga classes include all equipment if needed.
Yes. Class numbers are kept small so we all have enough room to move. Walk-ins are not allowed.
Anything which is comfortable, warm and is easy to move in. Please bare in mind skirts and dresses aren’t recommended.
Most of the time yes. Please contact me first before booking on to a class so I can ensure it’s safe for you to do yoga with me. Everybody is different and I would need to find out more about your health history to asses whether class would be suited to you.
Currently day and evening classes are in Oswestry and Glyn Ceiriog and summer outdoor classes are in Llangollen.
