It has a stillness component and breath components.   I share Yoga in an integrative way, to ensure total wellbeing. .  Yoga has changed since I began teaching in 1997.  Most classes only offer the physical postures, here I offer you specific practices weekly that will improve your overall physical health, mental health and emotional wellbeing. This often leads you to be able to make good life directives, choose healthier relationships and live in harmony with life. On this website you will find classes in Hatha Yoga, Restorative Yoga.

What Carly experienced at the last mini retreat:

"I really enjoyed the day:- length of each session

It felt quite luxurious. I also felt like I had to let go of being in "charge" of myself

and everyone else around me- which is why I relaxed properly."
