I'm Julia and I've been practising yoga for around thirty years and teaching for over ten years. Yoga has helped me to become more balanced in my physical body, alleviating tension, aches and pains. As yoga is a moving meditation, I find that it helps to reduce stress and improves my mood and sense of wellbeing.
My passion is sharing yoga and movement with people who might not be your typical "yoga bunnies." So this type of yoga although challenging (mentally and physically) is suitable for everyone, even if you are not super bendy.
There are various two types of classes available depending on what you'd like to work on.
Gentle Yoga and Somatics Classes are ideal if you'd like to work more slowly - for instance, if you have an ache, pain or ailment, or if you are stressed and tired. Who isn't stressed and tired every now and again in London? You'll learn how to get your joints working harmoniously again to support you better in your life. The simple yoga breath and body awareness techniques work powerfully to relax and soothe your body and mind, leaving you more energy to live your life.
General Yoga is just that, we work with more traditional yoga postures with a view to building strength in the muscles and freedom in the joints. We focus on areas that commonly get tight or weak from living a modern life - stiff hips and shoulders, weak abdominals, tight neck, tight or weak leg and foot muscles. These classes are not suitable if you are working with chronic pain, illness or fatigue. However, if you have mild aches and pains and are in relatively good health, these classes will be fine. You'll learn more about how yoga can support you to lead a life with more balance, steadiness and ease.
