In the DVS, you can practice with teachers from all over the world and experience a unique approach to led classes that are creative without being overly complex, and strong while still being accessible. Each practice will leave you feeling grounded and at ease, despite the fact that we broadcast from our homes where pets, partners and little ones sometimes make guest appearances.
Originally influenced by the sequencing of Vinyasa, and with a keen interest in anatomy and how our bodies function, I combine innovative movement with traditional yoga poses, creating mindful full body flows to improve mobility, stability and strength. As well as empowering you to discover how your body should move, I aim to provide the tools to sustain movement for the long term - whatever your age, ability or current experience.
Yoga and movement have massively benefited my mental health and I actively promote that this practice is more than just physical. Spending time on my mat, focusing on the movement and physical sensations, emphasises the importance of being present in the moment and finding a sense of peace. Through a consistent practice, I have improved my quality of sleep and social functioning, enhanced my spiritual wellbeing and reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression.
I like to think of myself as living proof of the amazing physical and mental benefits of this practice. I most definitely practice what I preach!
As well as moving your spine in all directions to improve mobility, we'll work through some lower body control work to test and develop your strength and stability. No props required unless you usually like to add blocks to your practice.
