  • What are the benefits of yoga?
    Yoga has countless benefits which touch all aspects of life – mental, physical, spiritual and emotional health. Practising yoga can help with building resilience, fitness, strength, mobility, flexibility, injury prevention (and recovery), breath regulation, connecting with body, finding peace and stillness, sleeping better…the benefits are endless! Additionally, if you are pregnant, my pregnancy yoga can help strengthen the body and prepare it for birth If you want to know more, or have a specific issue you want to discuss, get in touch!
  • I really want to try yoga, but I feel intimidated to try it. Can you help?
    Yes – this is really one of the foundations of Elements Yoga. I understand that some people are intimidated by big classes, or the pressure of a set programme, or sequences. I can promise you that you will not experience this with Elements Yoga – in a private class, everything is tailored just for you, exactly where you are right now. Options, adjustments, and modifications are available in all group classes, and my goal is to give you the skills to practice yoga with confidence. Or, email me to enquire about our next beginner's course - learn the basics at your own pace, in a small class setting with others who are also just starting out!
  • What style of yoga do you teach?
    My initial training is in vinyasa style yoga, with a strong focus on optimal alignment (whatever that looks like in your body). I have completed 500 hours of certificated yoga teacher training. I have also completed training on Yoga Nidra, Yin and Restorative Yoga, as well as specialist pregnancy and post-natal training. Currently I am undertaking a further 200 hours of Hatha Yoga training. I tailor the way I put together flows and teach them in a way that suits you – meaning I can offer an active, power-style class, or a more gentle flow focused on flexibility and calm.
  • What do I need to do to prepare for a class?
    Try not to eat anything too heavy in the 90 minutes before your session. Bring a water bottle and something warm (like a jumper and socks) for our final resting posture. I supply mats, blocks, bolsters and blankets. If you prefer to bring your own mat, you can. All of the equipment is sanitised before and after use. If you prefer to wear a mask while practising, please do. Arrive a few minutes early just to get settled, and remember that the final pose (savasana) is the most important pose in yoga. For many people, it is the only time they put aside for themselves to really reintegrate and reset. If you are going to leave early in a group class, please set up near the door and leave quietly, being mindful of this.
  • I’m an athlete/runner/cyclist, how can yoga benefit me?
    Yoga is an excellent addition to your training programme and can help you to realise your goals. I have run ultra marathons, marathons, half marathons and completed triathlons and yoga has been essential for that. Here are some of the benefits: recovery and rehabilitation, building strength, practising tools for breath regulation, resilience meditation, or building endurance. Talk to me about your goals, and I can tailor a programme that fits in with your training.
  • I’ve never done yoga before, are your group classes right for me?
    Yes - my yoga is beginner-friendly, and my approach to offering it is to make it accessible to all. I will meet you where you are at in your yoga journey, even if its right at the beginning. You can schedule private 1:1 classes with me for the ultimate personalised experience, or, if you join one of my group classes, you will be offered options, modifications, and adjustments to suit you. You are in control of your yoga journey – I just provide the roadmap.
  • I am recovering from injury/not flexible/not fit/not strong, can I still do yoga?
    Yes – the yoga I offer is yoga for every body, and there is a way to offer it all people. A key part of my training and background is around adapting yoga so that it is available to everyone. If you have injuries, mobility issues, or any other quirks, let me know: I love working with all types of bodies. In some cases, you might be asked to provide further information, or get a medical clearance, but please do ask first. It may be that a private session is more suitable for your circumstances than a group one: reach out to me to discuss.
  • I’m pregnant/post partum, can I do yoga?
    Yes Pregnancy: I have completed a specialist 85 hour prenatal yoga training and I can offer pregnancy yoga for all levels of yogi. Pregnancy yoga is beneficial because it helps strengthen the body and prepare it for birth, assists with building mobility, promotes calmness and stability while the body is changing, works with the changes you’re experiencing in your body, and helps to connect you with your breath and your baby. Post-natal I have completed a specialist 85 hour certification in post-natal yoga, and I can offer post-natal yoga to all levels of yogi. Post-natal yoga assists the body with the repair and rebuilding the body after birth, assists with strengthening and repairing the shoulders, neck and back (essential for carrying and feeding baby) and provides you with some gently active self love and 'me time'. You must be at least 6 weeks post-partum before you can attend post-natal yoga, and in some cases I may require clearance from your medical professionals. My private classes are tailored just for you, and mirror where your body is at in your pregnancy.
  • I want to gift a class to someone special, can I do this?
    Yes – gift vouchers for 1:1 sessions are available online. If you would like something else specific, please let me know.
  • Do you offer online classes?
    Yes – I have this capability, please enquire.
