Welcome

I’m a qualified yoga teacher and massage therapist in Dumfries, Scotland.

I’m currently teaching 3 online yoga classes and also personal 1-to-1 online yoga sessions. I am unable to offer massages due to Covid-19.

 

My yoga classes are ideal if:

  • you spend the working week mainly sitting down and want to move and release areas of the body
  • you have a tendency to have stiff shoulders, neck and upper back and want to ease this area
  • you have mild back discomfort and want to move mindfully
  • you need to have some ‘me time’ to feel calmer and more relaxed
  • you have feelings of low mood, anxiety, stress and mild depression and want to learn techniques that can help you
  • you are looking to improve your fitness
  • you want to develop your yoga practice, including breath work and meditation
  • you want to add yoga to your cross-training programme
  • or many other reasons!

Online yoga classes

Brief info about the online yoga classes (scroll down for more detailed info):

  • Intermediate yoga (75 mins) – ideal for those wishing to develop their yoga or add yoga to an existing fitness programme
  • ‘Early bird’ (60 mins) – a relatively gentle class, suitable for yoga beginners
  • ‘Midday movement’ (45 mins) – a relatively gentle class, suitable for yoga beginners, and this won’t get you sweaty if you’re doing it in the middle of your working day!

No special software is needed to take part in these classes.

You can book and pay online. A weekly class pass is also available for all three classes (this saves you a bit of time and money!). These classes can be done at a later time/day – book on for the week you want to get the link, then do the class when it is convenient for you.

I can also create tailored personal yoga videos, or personal 1-to-1 yoga/mediation sessions via video sharing, for 30 or 60 minutes – contact me directly to discuss.
