Why Yoga?

Because yoga is amazing! It's healing and just makes you feel better somehow, both energised and calm, stronger, and more flexible and balanced in body, mind and spirit. Yoga is non-competitive and all it asks of you is to turn up exactly as you are and practice, practice, practice…

What to expect?

To Emma yoga encourages the unfolding of the true self, of allowing the spirit to shine and the heart to lighten.  Teaching a flowing and dynamic form of Hatha yoga, Emma encourages awareness of breath and energies of alignment so that one can experience the transformative, healing and uplifting effects of yoga for oneself.

Emma also teaches a Sunday morning gentle flow yoga class, incorporating yoga poses (asana), pranayama (breathing exercises) and Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation for deep rest). There may also be some guided meditation from time to time. 

As a Reiki Master teacher and a Holistic therapist, Emma teaches in a deeply intuitive way, allowing a nurturing and supportive environment which allows students of all levels to deepen their practice and encourages greater awareness of body, mind and soul and the need to take responsibility for our own health and wellbeing and the impact we can have on the world we live in.

What to wear?

Comfortable tightly fitting gym clothes such as t-shirts/vest-tops with leggings or shorts are recommended, together with a jumper and socks for relaxation. Please respect the yoga space when you enter by leaving your shoes by the door, classes are practiced barefoot.

What about injuries?

Yoga has been used since ancient times as a holistic method for preventing and healing injury and illness. However it is extremely important that you please let the teacher know, in confidence, of any injuries and medical conditions before the class commences.

What if I am pregnant?

Beinspired only accepts pregnant women with an existing yoga practice into our general classes during their second and third trimesters. We can highly recommend classes with Anita Davies who is also a local doula, you can contact her anita@birthguernsey.co.uk. It is essential that you let the teacher know, in confidence, that you are pregnant regardless of the stage of pregnancy.
