I teach yoga for children and teenagers- sometimes in family groups in their own homes. Children aged 12 or over are welcome to come to any of my classes or workshops, with a parent or guardian.
I teach a Wednesday 7 pm "improvers yoga class" in Horsham. But who is it aimed at? What exactly is an 'improver'?
I look forward to meeting new students. I feel that teaching someone their first ever Yoga class is a great honour.
When we practice we are supposed to draw the attention inwards. We are supposed to be mindful, not daydreaming. Our minds are not supposed to wander off.
Recent studies have proven it! A lot of women start Yoga in their 40's and 50's as they start to experience fatigue and hormonal fluctuations. Many women have tried conventional treatments and realise that they only offer a short term solution.
Did you know that doctors have a special way to record patients who say they are tired all the time?
As summer approaches more and more people take up running. Sometimes I think yoga and running are opposites- as in yoga we aim to 'do no harm' yet with running so many people harm themselves.
It's not just busy executives that can't find time to get to class. I teach one to one yoga to retired people and busy mums in the comfort of their own home - at a time to suit them. Sometimes it is my existing students that attend my classes that want an extra boost for their practice. Sometimes I teach yoga to couples.
Most of us understand that the quality of our later life will depend on our health. So it is strange that we may have given our current health little thought. Some of us put our health on a 'to-do list' when actually it should be a daily priority. Exercise over 50 is an investment in your health for the rest of your life.
Some people are not sure about how much time should be left between eating and yoga class. Some students are coming to Yoga class having not eaten for a very long time.
