Hatha Yoga

Hatha yoga comes from an ancient tradition which continues throughout the world today. The literal translation of the Sanskrit word “yoga” is “union” – the coming together of the mind, the body and the spirit. Through a combination of physical work – warm-ups and “asanas” (postures) – breath work and meditation and relaxation, Hatha yoga offers a holistic approach which can help us find inner peace in an ever more stressful world. For more general information on yoga, please see the British Wheel of Yoga website www.bwy.org.uk or search for the many yoga-related resources on the web.

The emphasis in my work is on:

  • The body as a balanced and integrated structure: building strength alongside as much space and freedom of movement as possible
  • Eradicating inappropriate habits and developing intelligent patterns of movement which promote freedom in the body
  • Relaxing and creating space in our minds
  • Helping individuals to develop an approach to yoga which is individual to their needs in all aspects of their lives
  • Enhancing performance in sport and dance, including balance and stability, performance breathing, mental focus training, and integrating my specialist experience of posture, anatomy and
  • movement into strength and conditioning programmes

I teach weekly yoga classes in the Barnet area, private groups and 1:1. Yoga sports or dance coaching can take place at the venue most appropriate to your training.
