Classes are kept to a minimum size, usually 8-12 people, so everyone has the space they need as well as receiving individual guidance.
It is amazing to see people's bodies open up and change, becoming softer, more flexible and responsive. The breathing is
fuller and more even, students develop a body confidence and more powerful presence.

Suitable for beginners and general level students. This class gives you an understanding of how to work correctly with alignment and technique, providing a strong foundation for an intelligent and safe practice.
Postures are held so you have time to connect with your body alignment and breath, thereby stilling the mind. Each consecutive class brings more understanding and confidence in yoga, the student feels the benefits of having more energy, body awareness, clarity, inspiration and greater health.
This class is suitable for general level to more experienced students. Guidance in working the postures becomes more refined to work on a deeper level.
Yoga is an art of healing
Yoga postures, although appearing to be static, are a whole body experience, stimulating and affecting endocrine glands, muscles, nerves, organs and meridians.
The focus at Yoga Light is to awaken one's consciousness to body awareness, posture and energy.
When working a posture there are equal opposite actions taking place. HATHA - translating to "sun" /"moon," "masculine"/ "feminine" - Uniting opposites. This action creates the dynamic energy internally within the body, accessing meridians (energy channels), clearing stagnation, and stimulating the flow of Chi or Prana - "life energy" whilst inducing relaxation and a "letting go" of the mind.
Some common issues to be healed through yoga are back pain, tight hips, the digestive system, stress management and muscle tension. The condition I see often is tight shoulders and upper body, restricting full breathing.
Adopting a regular yoga regime maintains and improves your health, reducing the impact of harmful diseases.
Yoga is non-competitive, each individual works at their own level of flexibility, strength and self development.
Yoga is an ancient art and science to create balance and healing, supporting us to move into our full creativity and expression.
