Relax and unwind with yoga - an introduction to the gentle yoga practises of restorative, yin and gentle hatha poses.
I'll take you through an introduction to the practise of yoga and the specific benefits of restorative yoga styles. Including how movement and breath can move us into a calmer state of being,
Then we'll move onto how to use restorative yoga to relieve common areas of tension in the body, we'll look at some key poses and the benefits they bring.
From here you'll be guided through putting the poses together allowing you to create your own yoga practise at home, or feel more confident heading to a class.
Hi! I'm Sarah, certified Yoga Instructor, Retreat Producer, Business Owner, Author and Digital Marketing Director.
I hold BSc and MSc degrees in Psychology, and spent a year researching behavioural neuroscience at Harvard University: I love to bring these expertise to the mat and explore the mind body connection with my Yoga students. The classes I teach focus on love and acceptance of who we are RIGHT NOW, embracing joy by living in the present moment.
In my 26 years as a student of Yoga I have found inspiration, sanctuary and strength in the practice and I believe everyone can benefit from Yoga. I gained my 200hr RYT certification in Hatha Yoga in 2012 - Hatha is the foundation of all physical Yoga practise. I have since taken on advanced training in Strala Yoga, and study in Anusara and Vinyasa styles which all utilise movement, ease and flowing sequences. These beautiful foundations have allowed me to create my own teaching approach of using both strength and softness on the mat!
In my other roles I have been organising events for over a decade: everything from science fairs to tech conferences to yoga retreats. I love to bring people together and play host! It's hard work producing and marketing events, but hugely satisfying.
