YOGA FLOW & YOGA THERAPY
experience the healing power of yoga
"Yoga for me is about finding joy, peace and stillness in a body free of tension. A complete union of mind, body and soul!"
Have you ever felt overwhelmed in a yoga class? You become aware that everyone around you seems so much more bendy than you and confident in their practice.
You feel some moments of strain as you try to get into difficult poses. No one is telling you if you’re doing it right. There isn’t enough time for the teacher to give you individual guidance. You are frustrated and unsure of what you are doing. You feel let down that yoga is not for you.
Many people think they are not flexible enough for yoga or it’s only for those with a perfect body. Yoga is for everyone, all abilities, gender, age, shape or size.
Yogaflow is a style based on the traditional hatha yoga system. The practice connects accessible yoga postures with breath and fluid movement in a well-rounded practice, integrating a flow of classical hatha postures with strengthening poses and passive stretches. We develop your practice at a slower pace, there’s time to explore individual postures so that new students can build confidence and familiarity,
A session begins with meditation and ends with mindful relaxation. Suitable for anyone who hasn't done yoga before, or who is keen to improve their current practice or just needs a boost of confidence for home practice.
YOGA FOR YOU

Annie's approach is completely holistic, nurturing you towards whole body wellness.

The individual instruction and attention to detail can be a great support in helping you to build confidence in how to practice safely, how to tune into your body’s needs, how to surrender and release your body and mind in the moment, as well as helping to improve your mental and physical health.
We guide you along a more Restorative yoga style particularly directed towards your needs developing passive poses and stretches that target specific areas of the body - for fatigue, pain, muscle tension or stiffness.
