Inspired by a range of teachers from different schools of yoga, I teach a gently flowing style of Hatha yoga that combines an emphasis on breath awareness and physical alignment with an invitation to get to know ourselves a bit better, inside and out.
Yoga is an ongoing experience rather than a set of poses or techniques to tick off as learned. I structure classes around a theme, whether that’s a particular foundational element, a strand of yoga philosophy, the time of year or perhaps a particular part of the body. The theme develops over approximately 4 week cycles, giving opportunity for learning, repetition and understanding your own body.
If you’re a beginner, you’re very welcome in all classes. Tuesday morning classes offer an opportunity to be in a smaller group with newer yogis and run on a half termly, 4-6 week course basis. Wednesday evening classes are mixed level with plenty of options to make sure the class is accessible for everyone. They run on a drop in basis. Taking a few private classes can also be a great way to learn the basics before going on to join a group class.
"Being a ‘plus sized’ lady I never imagined that I would be able to do yoga. After much deliberation I took the plunge and went along for a taster session. Alex is a wonderful teacher and will talk through many adaptations to poses that will ensure that you are doing what is right for you and your body. You don’t feel singled out or judged as everyone present wants you to experience and share in the joy of feeling wonderful."
"I've absolutely loved my introduction to yoga. I'd never done it before, but Alex has created such a friendly and relaxed environment to learn in that I've looked forward to it each week. I've come away from every session feeling great in mind, body, and soul. And it's been fun too - we've laughed lots! "
"Having returned to yoga after a number of years away I found Alex’s classes to be refreshing and inspiring. Alex has a friendly, relaxed approach and instantly puts her class members at ease. Her class content is well thought out, ensuring there are options for everyone and she is committed to ensuring everyone achieves what they want. I have also been lucky enough to have some 1 to 1 sessions at her lovely studio and would highly recommend these."
"Yoga with Alex has been of huge benefit to me since I started six months ago. I am training for a 10 mile run and it has helped with my strength and prevented me from the injuries and niggles I used to get."
