My kind of yoga


It's not about making pretty shapes... It's about feeling GOOD.

Feeling horrendously stiff? Don't worry! As long as we can breathe, we can practise yoga. I offer a hatha flow, which means we will move through asanas (postures), and develop awareness of our breathing throughout.

We move to improve strength and flexibility, but never at the cost of core stability and long term health.

There is a healthy warming pace to each class, but we never strain or push. Each session begins and ends with a simple guided relaxation. If you have health issues or painful bits, speak to me first and I will tailor the session for you. I keep sessions one-to-one or small groups, so you have my attention and care throughout.

I’ve taken two 200hr teacher trainings - one in a very strong, ‘classical’ Raja Dhiraja yoga, and the second in a more playful, rehabilitative style of yoga, in the spirit of Vanda Scaravelli. The Scaravelli style is perhaps more appropriate for our overworked and achey bodies! Whatever your experience, I always offer unconditional positive regard. Yoga practise can become a real source of energy and encouragement, if you pick the right people to yoga with. In her own words:


I am not in competition with anyone else. I run my own race. I have no desire to play the game of being better than everyone else around me, in any way, shape or form. I just aim to improve, to become a better person than I was. That's me and I'm free.

- Vanda Scaravelli

TESTIMONIALS

"...your classes... are perfect! I love the relaxations at the beginning and end. The general pace is fab, not too easy or too difficult! The clarity of your instructions is wonderful and I feel fully supported with you as my teacher :-) Your studio room is tiny, but lovely ... and has a fantastic feel to it"

Just had such an amazing yoga sesh this morning, in fact it was my favourite class EVER! Thank you so much Phoebe for your humour and loveliness, and total willingness to go with the flow! I feel great, and I just wish Wednesdays would come round more often!  Hooray! xxx
