Weekly Yoga Classes

Combining intelligently sequenced asanas (yoga postures) with breath awareness,relaxation and meditation techniques.

Classes are responsive and sensitively structured to help you help yourself from the inside out. 

I use a variety of somatic movement techniques to expand and support the yoga practice. Somatics encourages a way of moving from the inside out and is typified by a sense of easeful exploration and expansion in the body and mind

Adaptations and alternatives are always given in my classes so that each person can negotiate their own level of challenge and comfort and so practice safely.

‘Paula’s teaching style is thoughtful and detailed. Always with sympathy for where you are in your body at that moment, it encourages you to find stillness, strength and steadiness.  Highly recommended’

YOGA in the workplace & private/small group sessions

"Paula's yoga classes help stretch out tense muscles and still the mind - particularly important after a day immersed in work. Having yoga brought to our workplace gave colleagues a chance to relax their bodies and brains; running classes directly after office hours also allowed those with childcare and other commitments to take part."
