YOGA & MEDITATIONYoga & Meditation ClassesYoga or Meditation - One to OneFAQ'sYoga & Meditation Health Questionnaire
Whilst there are many benefits to be gained from attending group classes, an ideal way for many people to learn and develop their personal practice is through one to one sessions, the traditional way to learn yoga and meditation. With Barbara, your needs will be discussed and assessed. From this an individual practice will be developed and taught; one that is appropriate for you. Things to consider might include general health, flexibility, and life circumstances.
Reasons to consider individual classes:
If you would like to share your session with a partner or one or two friends, it’s a great way to learn.
You will be taken through a lesson plan that has been designed with you in mind. Whilst a lesson each week is ideal, the point of one to one sessions is to deepen your understanding and enable you to practice on your own with maybe a lesson a month to revisit and refresh your practice.
I have been doing Yoga with Barbara for many years. During my time I have found Barbara to be patient and compassionate. She takes great care to explain each movement and how to do the position with respect for your joints. Also if you suffer with an injury she tells you how to adjust the movement to protect your injury. The class is small and personal and the setting for her studio is fantastic with views across the valley, even watching the sun go down, whilst practicing Yoga. The class isn’t just about movement, Barbara takes time for relaxation and you always come away feeling mindful.
Barbara is excellent at personally tailoring her teaching to each individual students needs. Her approach is calming, knowledgeable and professional, immediately putting you at ease. As a trained massage therapist myself, I have attended courses with many different teachers and therapists. It was so refreshing when I began the course with Barbara and was actually introduced to massage techniques that I had never before experienced, delivered with such kindness and patience! I was impressed! She seems to know intuitively where to encourage and guide, and her teaching produce excellent results, always leaving me feeling confident in my ability. I loved doing the course and am now planning on continuing with Barbara and working through the Advanced Techniques.
I feel that Barbara’s approach to massage shows her thoughtfulness and consideration for her clients and this has the effect of leaving the spirit uplifted and the body well and truly stretched after every session.
