"Attitude is everything"
We practice yoga to feel more alive. To leave behind whatever holds us back and find that calm and clarity whilst releasing more of our potential.
Feet feeling the earth, and a mind set free. We all know a yoga class brings you more clarity in your thinking. Thousands of people have discovered yoga can change your life.
Integral yoga is an ancient movement practice that combines spacious breathing with deep rinsing postures, helping us to restore an emotional wellbeing along with good anatomical alignment.
There is a place for all shapes and sizes and levels of ability (my oldest and one of the best students is 85 years old)
We don't try to tie ourselves up in knots or push through discomfort. The role of a 'correct posture' or outer performance is minimised here, the emphasis is on opening, softening, undoing and releasing.
Filling every part of your body with breath and therefore awakening & nourishing areas of the body we may have forgotten. This is a colourful, enchanting and quite a mesmerising approach . You soon begin to understand it's far more powerful to be unique, than to be perfect.
So in this approach we are not looking for a stunning posture, we are looking for where we can fill the body with more aliveness and vitality.
"Yoga has a clever way of short circuiting the emotional & mental patterns that make you feel happier"
People come to yoga for many reasons. For some it's a realignment of the body. For some it's a sanctuary from the stresses and pace of daily life. For some it's a way of meeting other people. For others it's an inner healing, a nourishment and restoration of the emotional and hormonal systems. To others it's a meditative and spiritual practice.

Your Teacher Jay, has over 30 years anatomy and yoga experience. He has taught all over the world and currently has two books in print.
When we practice yoga, we connect with something very safe inside, a place without judgement.
Yoga gives you the tools to take care of yourself,
Emotionally, Mentally & Physically
Retreats / Holidays / Weekends
When you give yourself the time to get away from the hustle of daily life, you move into a different mind space .
Sometimes just being away from home , we give ourselves permission to truly relax.
Being on retreat allows you to open up to new insights as we are free from daily habits and stress.
Jay's retreats can be life changing as you learn so much about yourself.
These retreats are not about just having lots of yoga classes, as every class is so different. We may start with a class centred around improving your posture , then the next class may be on emotional wellbeing via breathing, chanting and meditation.
One of the keys to happiness is to know you are growing as a person, learning and changing, regardless of age or condition.
