Groups and Individuals
I am passionate about sharing yoga with people and believe every posture can be modified to make it available for everyone in whatever way they can manage at all levels and abilities. I have been teaching yoga for nearly 25 years as directed by my teachers Derek Ireland, Kristina Karitinou-Ireland and pranayama by Philip Xerri.
Whilst teaching I draw on nearly 40 years of experience in Osteopathy to ease aches, pains and muscle tension for the development of your physical strength and flexibility. I create a safe and friendly environment where people can explore and use their bodies in ways that they can physically manage for the benefit of their health, mobility and well-being.
“When you listen to yourself, everything comes naturally. It comes from inside, like a kind of will to do something. Try to be sensitive. That is yoga”
– Petri Räisänen
“Yoga is a mirror to look at ourselves from within!”
Chair yoga is a gentle form of Yoga that improves flexibility and core strength. It can be done while sitting or using a chair simply as support. It has low impact on joints and is ideal for older people or anyone that may have sustained an injury.
It is an adaptation of yoga poses that can be done simply in a chair to help improve flexibility and strength. This is useful for people who spend long hours sitting, such as at a desk or in planes, train and automobiles and for texter’s neck.
Perfect for people who cannot get up and down from the floor, are a little older or in rehabilitation from an injury as they can benefit from the increased flexibility and breathing without stressing their bodies. It works every part of your body and can loosen and stretch painful muscles too!
“This class is really enjoyable. I’m not quite fit enough to do yoga on the mat so it’s certainly a good alternative, providing me with the type of exercise I need.
Lin always explains the benefits of the exercises and with her knowledge of the body she can modify the exercises to suit us all.” – Angela
Learn to master your breathing for improved health and well-being. Breathing is the first and last thing we ever do – let’s make what we do in between work for us.
Pranyama is the practice of breath regulation and lies at the heart of Yoga. The word ‘Prana’ means Breath or vital energy in the body.
Work with me and learn to direct and control the breath and feel the benefits with better physical and mental wellbeing.
The more we breathe well, the more we relax, the more we relax the better we breathe!
“During the pranayama or breathing sessions I normally experience a period of great calmness and separation from all the anxiety of the present time-very restful. A very satisfied participant!” – John Mills
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
Explore movement with lightness and ease, strengthen, stretch, tone, breathe. Release stress in a safe, fun, friendly environment.
Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga teaches you to move with the breath and using core strengthening. Learn the sequences to practice at home.
I was very fortunate to be able to study Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga at The Practice Place which is run by Derek Ireland, Kristina Karitinou-Ireland and Rhada. I knew instantly that I had found my passion and the style I wanted to teach. Coached by Kristina, I eventually taught her classes from 1998. Following this, I became a Senior Yoga Alliance Teacher and Teacher Trainer whilst teaching Yoga practice throughout Sussex, including Brighton Natural Health Centre and Evolution.
Meditation and Relaxation
As well as running regular Ashtanga Vinyasa & Pranayama Yoga classes, I also specialise in various forms of meditation and relaxation techniques including sound therapy.
Integrating with my experience in Pranayama breathing techniques I offer sound therapy sessions that include tuning forks, Gong sound bath relaxation and holistic sound healing with the relaxing sound bowls.
