Friday Level 2 - Weekly drop in available
In my 90 minute weekly classes I hope to remind students that the most effective and perceptive teacher in the room is their own body. I attune students towards awareness of the sensations associated with each asana or pranayama. I find this a more integrative method than staging a pose for students to copy. I like to think I can speak the language of sensation clearly, so classes become a simple, joyful and sensual exploration.
In the power of giving birth I saw the sun in all its glory, I saw the fear in man's eyes at the earth shattering strength of woman.

Pregnancy Yoga courses - Tue @ 7pm - Next 6 Wk course Jan 9th
I have taught yoga to over five thousand women through their pregnancies. I believe Yoga is where the pregnant woman can find the strength and space to carry her baby healthfully. It’s where she finds the essential sense of calm for both herself and her baby and where she prepares her breath for the deepest physical, emotional, spiritual and sexual experience there is… human birth. Lest we forget, we are breathed into life.
Classes are currently in person only. A new 6 week course will commence January 9th in the new year.
Active Birth Workshops
Having taught over 1200 couples over the past 16 years I would summarise the practice of Active Birth as the simple understanding that in labour when it feels good, it is good. In these workshops, I remind the expectant mama and birth partner of the innate physical logic of a woman’s body. I teach birth partners how to support the labouring woman through understanding the labouring environment – it’s movements, breath and tone. Equipping them with tools and techniques to help their partners to labour as healthfully, easefully and holistically as possible.
Next workshops December 9th and January 20th and March 9th. Please attend as close to your due date as possible.
