and endure what cannot be cured.'' Iyengar

Developing a Personal Practice of Yoga

You begin developing your practice where you want with any aspects of the Eight Fold Path: choose to concentrate, amalgamate, strengthen your enlightenment, and/or embrace your physical and mental health.

Yogasana, the physical movement is the most practised in the West. Asanas or some call poses are suitable for all ages and all levels of fitness and flexibility. You do not need to be fit or flexible.

What to Expect

Sessions are offered in your chosen space – home, office, or other. Please have the room where you feel at ease, in a seated or lying position on chair or floor. I use a contact and non-contact, non-invasive techniques, as well as conversation, listening, hearing and reactive techniques. Like the waves of the ocean, energy ebb and flow.
