Why practise with me?
People often tell me that they can’t do yoga because they aren’t bendy enough. Well, we’re all on that journey! I try to offer classes which are inclusive and welcoming, not intimidating or very solemn and serious. You might not be able to touch your toes at the start of the class but maybe by the end, you will be. Along with everyone who practises yoga, I’m on a journey- my practice ebbs and flows, is affected by other demands on my time and mental health, how well I’ve been eating and how much wine I’ve had the night before! If I include a challenging posture in a class, it will be something that I’m ‘working towards’ as well, so we can all laugh about it together as we wobble and lose our balance! Essentially, there’s no such thing as a ‘yoga body’ and no perfect yogi, either. We’re all ‘working towards’ and our journeys are all as unique as we are. We start from where we are today. You can watch some short videos of my self-practice here.
Important: It’s always a good idea to let me know about any injuries or medical conditions that you have which might affect your yoga practice. These could include joint problems, vertigo, pregnancy, anxiety, nerve problems like sciatica, or blood pressure issues.
Feedback about the classes: “Cerian creates a lovely environment and teaches in a way that makes yoga accessible for all. I walk away from a class feeling relaxed, calm and happy. I highly recommend giving Cerian classes a go.”
“Thank you I always feel great and more motivated after your class, I’m hoping I can make Wed too.”
As more studios ask us to bring our own equipment, or as we practise more at home, you may be thinking of investing in your own kit. If you are, please consider buying through this link to Ekotex, which will earn me a little commission.
