I believe Yoga can be fun & also have profound effects on many levels.
In the Transformational Yoga workshops we work with many techniques to release blocks in the physical body & by doing so, often find emotional, mental & heart releases too, bringing us back to that feeling of wholeness.
Does this resonate with you?
This is a unique style of Yoga combining Asana, Pranayama, Mantra, Meditation, sometimes Yoga Nidra, occasionally a little dancing & always some fun!
My workshops are open to all abilities, no experience necessary.
With techniques to take home with you, you will leave these workshops with a sense of calm, feeling energised, clear & purposeful.
