I teach mindful yoga classes in the workplace and to the general public. My public classes are in Sutton, Surrey and I mix a range of yoga styles into a mindful class that is open to all. My classes are accessible and suitable for beginners as well as more experienced practitioners.
For me, a mindful yoga class allows for a ‘dropping in’ to each posture, sensing how it lands and being with what arises. Classes conclude with a body scan to further deepen awareness of what is really here.
Mindfulness makes a difference by creating a still point, a firm anchor, from which to approach the changing aspects of life. Repeated personal practice builds a foundation that can be readily called upon at any point, even in a time of stress, allowing space to be created to respond more effectively to whatever has arisen.
Finding a good teacher well versed in the practices is key to a mindfulness journey. A teacher who adheres to UK Network’s guidelines undertakes rigorous training and has a strong practice.
