TIPS for online

  • ensure your device is fully charged and in airplane mode, or close apps with notification bings
  • set your device in landscape orientation facing the long side of your mat about 2m away
  • get the cooperation of family and pets to leave you undisturbed
  • have your mat, cushion and blanket ready
  • wear leggings or trackies with an elasticated waist
  • warm top and socks to put on for relaxation
  • best not to eat for two hours beforehand; fruit juice is ok
ONE TO ONE SESSIONS If you are just starting yoga, private tuition will give you the best start you can possibly have… and if you are a long term practitioner this approach will give you fresh inspiration and insight into your practice. For older, stiff or recuperating people very gentle exercises bring fresh flexibility and vitality
