Functional Yoga is a fusion of anatomical alignment and Yoga movement. In this class, we focus on strength, mobility and flexibility in the body whilst challenging functionality. Taking you on a journey of self-exploration.
Including all elements of Yoga Asanas (poses), Pranayama (breathing techniques) and meditation this all rounded class will leave you feeling revitalised and energised.

Did you know that the word Yoga comes from the Sanskrit word ‘Yuj’ which means to yoke or to bind.
Yin, Meditate, Restore
The Nervous system is a complex network of pathways that sends signals to our mind and body to help us function.
In this day and age we live in our Sympathetic Nervous System, (flight and fight mode). Modern living comes busy living where we function with high levels of stress and anxiety.
In this class, we blend Yin with Mediation techniques to help re-wire our minds and bodies to tip us into our ParaSympathetic Nervous System (rest and digest mode).
Did you know activating the Vagus Nerve connects you straight to your rest and digest mode?
Myofascial Flow Yoga
Fascia is a type of connective tissue that wraps around our entire bodies. We can think of it as a bodysuit. Fascia has its own neural pathways which send signals to the body to help it repair from injury or repetitive use.
In this class, I blend Yoga movement with myofascial release techniques to help release those tight spots. Using specially designed myofascial release balls, each week we’ll explore different parts of the body releasing tension and restoring health to those tight and overworked areas.
Did you know our fascia is one continuous interconnected system that exists from head to toe just like a bodysuit?

Private 1-1 Sessions

The O Life Programme is my private practice. As a Yoga Medicine Therapeutic Specialist, I am able to work alongside healthcare professionals to help people who are experiencing dysfunction in their bodies.
In these sessions, I carry out assessments based on your ‘chief complaint’ and work with you to devise a suitable programme to help restore function back into your mind and body.
The O Life programme is also perfect for people who would prefer 1-2-1 sessions rather than a class environment.
