lots of forest retreats and events on Cannock Chase and in Lichfield
and of course lovely weekly classes to keep you full of health, energy & enthusiasm.
Visit the Yoga tab above for details of my weekly classes.
Hello and welcome to Emma's Yoga & Mindfulness.
I want everyone to try yoga, mindfulness, relaxation and take some nice deep breaths, so I teach adults, children and teenagers in halls, yoga studios, parks, out in the forest & in schools.
If you feel you are not bendy enough or young enough, or you have a dodgy back, shoulder, hip or knee, you're not super strong or your balance is rubbish, PLEASE DON'T WORRY! Come along to class, have a go and realise yoga and mindfulness work in lots of different ways to help you feel stronger and better and happier.
I teach everything in stages, working up to the final pose, breathing technique or meditation gradually so everyone can achieve their own version while working where they feel comfortable.
My yoga classes are suitable for ALL levels of fitness and flexibility, from beginners to advanced students, toddlers to adults of any age. My youngest "students" start at 6 weeks for baby massage & yoga, and I'm so proud to have quite a few people in their 70's regularly balancing in tree pose or channelling their inner warriors!
I was trained in Dru Yoga, a flowing, gentle style of yoga which is fantastic for strengthening the back and core. My style has evolved a little to include traditional hatha yoga poses, held for a little longer, and a teeny bit of tai chi & Qi gong because I love them!
I work with the chakras, the energy centres of the body; with the koshas, the layers of body, breath, emotion and thought that make us who we are; and lovely prana, that life-force or energy that flows through us and around us, and that sometimes gets a bit stuck, causing bad backs, a poorly digestive system or an aching head.
Yoga has the potentilal to gradually transform you; physically, mentally and emotionally, so you can be the very best version of yourself!
