Iyengar Yoga is renowned as a safe way of working, partly due to the use of props to help stiffer students. Iyengar Yoga can help with many of the common complaints of sports people, from muscle tightness to more serious injuries.
As my Yoga classes in Horsham break for two weeks I thought it might be a good time to offer some home Yoga practice tips.
Is Yoga enough on its own or do you need to add something like running or swimming to make it a complete exercise program?
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.
