THROUGH YOGA

Sadhana Yoga

Sadhana – means practice or discipline and is fitting with my philosophy of commitment with regard to self awareness and growth.  The system of the practice is one which fosters Self- Cultivation.  I teach classical Hatha Yoga using the Vinyasa krama system. The true meaning of the word Hatha is “force’ or ‘effort’, Vinyasa meaning “placement’ or ‘step-by-step’. The ‘effort’ refers to the requirements for us to move past our challenges (physical and mental) in order to develop and grow. The approach to the practice is progressive, dynamic and caters to the needs of the individual’s limitations. Forcing or pushing the body into poses it is not ready for, over-use of alignment techniques and under- use of the bodies natural movement patterns leads to injury and disillusionment. For the practice to continually evolve the mind must pay keen attention to the activity while addressing the blockages and patterns that reveal themselves during the practice. There are classes to suite you and your practice at various stages of life, level of experience and to suite the pace suited to your body.  See the class listing below.

One to Ones

As well as group classes we offer personal Yoga and Pilates one to one sessions tailored to your specific needs and preferences. The session involves assessment and will help you to work with limitations, manage existing injury, and give you the tools to make modifications/adjustments in line with your safety, and with your progression in mind. With one to one sessions, the teacher can address specific issues or questions, which is not always possible in a group class, and create a suitable home practice plan for you based on your aims and expectations.

Japa Mantra Meditation - Early Morning Sit

Japa is a Sanskrit word meaning ‘to mutter’ or ‘to repeat’ in a muttering tone. What is being muttered/repeated is a mantra, which can be a word or a sound to aid concentration in meditation.

Testimonials

Fabulous first experience. I had the opportunity to experiment yoga for the first time with Linda. I was initially anxious because I had no previous background but she really managed to give me a real understanding of the core of Yoga. After this first session, I left having a better understanding of my body and the importance of breathing and correct positioning. She has passion, experience, and she is a fantastic instructor. I would highly recommend and can’t wait for my next session !

I could not recommend Linda's yoga practice highly enough! Her classes cater for everyone no matter what level you at and always leave class feeling you have achieved something! I have found such huge benefits for both body and mind that truly stay with me well beyond the classroom! Linda has an amazing ability to break down and explain the practice so I always feel I am improving and learning. If you are looking for a worthwhile and beneficial yoga practice and a fantastic teacher look no further.
