In all classes there is a high degree of attention given to the correct performance of asana or postural yoga, and to pranayama, the breathing exercises. There is diversity in the asanas and sequences taught in the classes, lending a therapeutic nature to the practice, the exception to this, being the Ashtanga class.
Ashtanga is a dynamic and physically demanding style of yoga that works by synchronising the breath with set sequences of postures. At present Julie teaches the Primary series (Yoga Chikitsa/yoga Therapy) Practitoners become very hot which facilitates purificatory sweating and enables deep stretching without injury.
Yoga practice brings about physical stability, balance, agility and stamina, as well as mental equilibrium and confidence.
While it is often quoted that yoga should not be competitive, and this is true, Julie hopes that her classes help students to strive for their own personal excellence.
Can Yoga get you fit?
Whilst Yoga may have a spiritual side, Yoga can get you surprisingly fit.
Why not take a look at this amazingly inspiration video (click here) about some of the real benefits of yoga.
"Yoga has helped my recovery from football injuries and improved my football too."
My team love attending lunch time yoga, they get their exercise for the day done and are more energised in the afternoon ( better than a caffeine fix) Yoga really helps my staff's morale significantly, reducing head, neck and back pain. The wellbeing of my staff is really important to me, that's why Julie's yoga class is ideal. Thanks a million."
Yoga is fantastic - in 6 months I have been able to achieve what I thought was impossible when I first started. Julie is a lovely lady who patiently guides you through all the practice - it really does give you a feeling of peace & wellbeing.
Julie is a kind, caring & attentive yoga teacher. She creates a calm & tranquil environment in which to feel relaxed & safe. The yoga class I attend combines stretching & strengthening exercises with relaxation & meditation. Although a class, each person can work at their own pace & comfort & each receives personal help & support from Julie. I always feel better & sleep better afterwards.
Julie is an inspiring teacher whose knowledge of physiology gives students confidence to explore yoga postures. Julie is lovely to work with, encouraging & supportive, so everyone can work within their own limits.
