Our yoga classes

Yoga is thousands of years old. It means different things to different people. To some it is purely a form of exercise – to others a way of life. Neither is right or wrong – it is what it is and can mean different things at different life stages.

In the west many people do not realise that Yoga is not confined to just the physical practise or Asana, and the media has unfortunately made many people feel that it would not be appropriate for them as they do not have the ‘right body’ or level of flexibility or that they are too old.

Here at Body Nurture yoga is suitable for all. Classes include chanting, breath work and meditation.

Thousands of years ago the great sage Patanjali shared  ’The Eight Limbs of Yoga’.  These ancient texts are like a guide – showing guiding us along the path for living and experiencing our lives life to our full potential.

Yamas – or how we practise yoga off the mat

Niyamas – self discipline and spiritual practises

Asana – physical practise

Pranayama – the expansion of life force trough breathing practise

Pratyahara – withdrawal of the senses to experience the inner self

Dharana – focus and concentration

Dhyana – meditation

Samadhi – transcendence – the supreme state of consciousness

Trained by Simon Low of the Yoga Academy, Sue’s style of teaching is safe and gentle yet challenging and dynamic. Her experience of STOTT Pilates and remedial massage and her training with Simon help her to ensure that all students are taught from a sound anatomical basis. Whichever style of class you choose you will leave feeling rejuvenated yet relaxed and more at one in mind body and spirit.

Body Nurture Yoga Classes

Yin and Yang Yoga Restore

A gentle approach which supports and honours all styles. It combines Yang – a more dynamic practise with Yin – the more still, passive, deep and restorative asana. When practised regularly this will help to bring balance to body and mind.

Dragon Flow Yoga

Combines classic asana with dynamic, flowing movements – flavoured with essences of Tai Chi and Qigong. Classes finish with Yin postures – deep, supported and restorative stretches. Dragon Flow will leave you balanced, energised and yet relaxed.

Aerial Yoga

Let your inner child come out and play as you experience deep, supported stretches.

Trained by Devi Kaur – developer of Aerial Yoga UK, Sue will guide you through a beautiful balancing practise which includes chakra based meditation and asana.

Currently only available as a one to one practise – but classes will be introduced during 2016
