Yoga classes for everyone
Marie’s classes are designed to be fully accessible to people who have never done yoga before. They are non intimidating for the newbie and a warm welcome is given by others in the class. The atmosphere is friendly and sociable without any competitive cliques.
Classes are for adults of any age – I’ve taught teenagers through to retired people. Yoga really can benefit us all at any stage of our life.
If you have already done yoga before you are still very welcome to the class. I teach Hatha style yoga including many of the postures you are likely already familiar with. I like to include some twists and variations on the classic asanas and aspects of my teaching are clearly influenced by styles such as Iyengar and Scaravelli yoga approaches.
Whilst accessible for beginners I also include a few more challenging postures such as more advanced balances and binds. This gives beginners an idea of where they may progress to as well as providing something stimulating for the more advanced practitioner.
Medical and health challenges
Most people carry some kind of injury or physical challenge. Yoga is still for you and postures can always be adapted to avoid aggravating any physical problems.
Typical issues that people have include bad backs, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, sore wrists, arthritic knees and hips, recovery from breaks and twists, heart problems and many other challenges such as limited movement or reduced strength.
Don’t let poor health prevent you from enjoying the benefits of yoga.
I myself have all manner of issues with my spine – multiple bulging discs and quite significant degeneration. Yoga has released me from a world of pain and has given me far more movement and flexibility than any other treatment was able to.
