Which yoga class for me?

If you ask me what “style” of Yoga I teach then I would say “Carole Yoga”. That sounds silly but over the years I have studied many different types of Yoga .

I am a qualified 500 hours British Wheel of Yoga Diploma Holder since 2006 (The Governing Body for the UK)

I have also attended the following additional Teacher Training/Workshops

Scaravelli Yoga Immersion ~ Catherine Annis

Soma Prana Vinyasa Flow – Shiva Rae

Well Woman Yoga Therapy – Uma Dinsmore

Plus countless others on such fascinating subjects as The Psoas, The Vagus Nerve, Fascial Connections in Yoga, Restorative Yin Yoga.

My classes are a blend of all that I have learned and evolve as I learn more!

Here are the descriptions to help you choose:

Finishing with a juicy Yin pose and relaxation. Ideally you will have some yoga experience or have attended my 10 Week Beginners Yoga Course.

Yin Restorative Yoga for Women’s Health/ Yin Restorative Yoga for all

Do you need to step off your hamster wheel? Restorative/Yin Yoga is about using gravity and time together with deep restorative breathing to elicit the Relaxation Response in our bodies and reduce the stress hormone cortisol. You will learn to relieve stiffness in the muscles and joints and to work with the connective tissue (fascia) understanding the intrinsic link it has to everything physical and emotional within us. In the next few years it will become common place to talk about emotional experiences being held within the physical body structures. Come and get ahead of the game and learn how to release your stress and tension and also hopefully prevent it occurring in the first place! Suitable for all levels. Wednesday evenings is open to women 16+  including pregnant and post natal. Special focus given to female health issues and different class themes for certain areas. Sunday morning 10.00am is a mixed class.

Men Only Yoga (Workshops or Private Classes)

Now that the England World Cup Football team have been seeing doing Yoga, it seems to be more popular amongst the lads! I do find that most men find a yoga class with women in it a tad intimidating so this class will focus on Men’s needs particularly. I have found this to be a lot of releasing of hamstrings, quads, hip flexors and lower backs, opening of shoulders and chest area o improve posture and breathing and learning to let go of the stress! All levels welcome. Message me if I can schedule a class for you and your mates or your sports team or club?
