Understand how our own bodies manifest stress and then to learn how to dissipate this held tension.
Learn techniques to combat stress .through both body work and mindful practices.
Learn how to breathe well.

Monthly Workshops at Greywell Village Hall (RG29 1BY).
19 January 2019 : ‘Moving into 2019 with ease .
The body already has all the length it needs if we can manage to release all the restrictions in it (ref: Gary Carter at Natural Bodies ). This workshop will ease us into 2019, loosening off tight hips and shoulders to find ease of movement. We will explore lots of hip and shoulder opening movements and work deeply to find release. We will take a refreshment break towards the end of the workshop and finish with a peaceful relaxation . The workshop is suitable for all.
Feb 09 2019 : Building a good foundation for your practice
This workshop will explore how we can find freedom of movement using the whole body from the ground up . We will spend time exploring posture work where we use the feet as a strong base. By the end of the workshop, you will have found ease in movement , having more freedom in hips, shoulders , necks and will have found room for an easier breath . We will take a refreshment break towards the end of the workshop and finish with a peaceful relaxation . The workshop is suitable for all.
02 March 2019 : Finding strength .
This workshop will look at how we can develop our practice to find stronger postures We will look at how to develop our stomach muscles without compromising any other areas as is often the case in traditional ‘core’ work. We will look at postures such as plank, that are considered to be all about upper body strength but we will see how when we integrate our body as a whole we find them with more ease. We will take a refreshment break towards the end of the workshop and finish with a peaceful relaxation . By the end of the workshop you will know how to develop strength in the body without pain or injury. The workshop is suitable for all though if recovering from injuries it may not be suitable for you. Please discuss with Tanya first.

My Yoga Style
My practice has its roots with a style of yoga called Scaravelli, based on the work of Vanda Scaravelli. I am also influenced by current visionaries in the field of movement, and this mix of ideas makes for an intelligent way to look at human movement. It promotes ease in movement for everybody.
The beauty of the work is that it can help everyone: for example I currently teach people looking for recovery after hip or knee replacements to super active martial arts students looking to find more flexibility and ease in the body.
As individuals we each have unique bodies, the same as we have unique faces and so classes are centred on the individual , rather than the teacher’s expectations of what an individual should achieve. I ensure there is freedom for each person to explore their own practice and feel their own body. This makes the emphasis less about achieving a particular posture but more about the journey of getting there. Classes are suitable for everyone and in each class students are encouraged to take the movement practice at their own pace. Classes are nearly always small, usually with less than 10 people in each.
I also have a very gentle Greyhound who occasionally joins classes.
