Welcome to the Spirit of Yoga

 Hi I'm Cathie McGill and here at The Spirit of Yoga  I offer you the Yoga tools towards better health & Wellness. My Hatha Yoga Classes are a combination of Physical Movement and Static Stretching and breathing, Yoga Nidra. Restorative Yoga is based on Yoga as Therapy. Restorative's purpose is to bring your body and mind towards stillness. This is why I share Yoga in an integrative way, to ensure you as a whole person returns back into being and feeling balanced.  Yoga has changed since I began teaching in 1997, 20 years ago now.  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. Yoga Retreats and Training in Restorative Yoga.  The Home studio is in Norwood it is just large enough for groups of 9 -10. The Restorative Classes and Training are sometimes held in other venues, please visit the other pages or call me today. Cathie

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."
