Zen Yoga for YOU
Lizzy's yoga classes combine warm ups, mindful movement, yoga postures, breathing exercises and a guided relaxation session.
Lizzy's intention is to guide you towards increased strength, flexibility and balance in your body and to nurture stillness and contentment in your mind. Our yoga practice together aims to bring us into the present moment and guide us home to our true nature.
We start where YOU are (rather than where you think you ought to be), it's non-competitive, invigorating and we like to laugh too. Postures can be adapted and modifications offered to enable you to enjoy yoga at your pace and to find that all important balance between effort and ease.
What is Zen Yoga?
Zen yoga began in the temples of Japan where the monks performed yoga-like exercises to loosen up and prepare for the long periods of seated meditation. It's roots stretch back two and a half millenia through China and India to the Buddha.
There's lots of emphasis on mindful movement and correct physical alignment to enable the free flow of energy (or Qi) in the body. Zen yoga works with the energy meridians to bring our bodies in tune with the seasons.
The yoga Lizzy shares in her classes combines hatha yoga practices with zen yoga wisdom to give you a unique yoga experience every time you step onto your mat.

Pregnancy Yoga Classes
Our pregnancy yoga classes are suitable for ladies from 16 weeks and include yoga postures, mindful movement, breathing techniques and a long and nurturing relaxation session. We allow plenty of time at the end of the session for our mums to chat over tea and healthy nibbles. Our intention is to help women to enjoy yoga safely throughout their pregnancy and then go on to have positive and empowering birthing experiences.
Personal yoga tuition tailored to your goals and health requirements.
