A beginner's mindset
Yoga for Beginners
If you are new to yoga, my goal is to help you feel comfortable and relaxed. Here you may find yourself introducing or re-introducing yourself to your own body and welcoming it, wherever and whatever stage it is at in the life course. You have made it to the mat, often the first step is the hardest and I appreciate that. No questions are too daft and you don't have to worry about not making the 'correct shape' or looking goofy. Learning is about challenging oneself and then persevering along an enlightened path with an open heart and mind. Some people forget to take time out to learn something new, instead choosing to work within their existing comfort zones for fear of the unknown or simply preferring familiarity. Others like taking risks, calculated or otherwise and enjoy that adrenaline rush that can come with absorbing new information. You are encouraged to develop your own mind:body awareness. This is facilitated through practising good alignment and movement patterns, coupled with correct breathwork and recognising your own body limitations which works to help keep yourself safe and prevent injury.Whatever your stance or whether you ebb and flow, my aim is to welcome you to this amazing world of yoga in a safe and nurturing way. No need to feel shy, come along and get ready to stretch and strengthen your body.
