Yoga


Yoga is my medicine. My daily practice keeps me sane, present and healthy - and I cannot imagine my life without it. My practice helped me heal and recover from Lyme Disease... when I first began to dedicate myself to regular time on my mat, everything changed; my body and mind became stronger and more flexible and everything else fell into place.

It is my mission to share the benefits yoga can bring with compassion and inspiration. Trained as an E-RYT500 instructor in The Rocket, Ashtanga, Yin and Restorative Yoga, I believe that yoga is for everyone, and thus one to one sessions are tailored to the student's needs, combining breath and movement in order to create transformation and change.

Yoga is 'union' - union within ourselves - body, mind, heart and breath - but also as a community. In this way an important aspect of my work as a yoga facilitator is the running of my Brighton studio, Inbodhi - A Yoga Circle, where my team and I provide group classes, workshops and teacher trainings.

Rocket Vinyasa Sequences
Rocket is inspired by the classical Ashtanga Vinyasa series. It is a perfect marriage of tempo and sequence, suitable for all level students. The full range of modifications are offered during the class, so that practitioners of all levels can go experience Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, breath and asana from where they are in their practice. Rocket is designed to wake up the nervous system, feeding it with precious prana and supporting the practice with the free and fun flow. Rocket 1 has its focus on the legs, shoulders, and abs. Be ready to move a bit faster and get a lot stronger. The poses are from Ashtanga Vinyasa's first and second series. Rocket 2 uses the poses from the first three Ashtanga Vinyasa series, focusing on the strength of arms, as well as back bending, and hip opening. Rocket 3 is practiced on Friday and is called Happy Hour all over the world to celebrate the week. It is also an all-level class and suitable especially to those who like to add some challenge and fun to their practice.

Yin and Restorative Yoga
Yin yoga in its essence gives you the possibility to relax, surrender, enjoy the present moment, and accept everything that comes up as it is. By allowing yourself to remain in stillness and in silence you can dive deeper and your target in the connective tissues and fascia. Yin yoga is a very effective way to increase softness and flexibility as the poses are held from 2-6 minutes. It is a meditative practice with the intention of self-acceptance, kindness, and peace of mind.
Restorative Yoga is a slow and meditative practice for everyone. We will be using bolsters, blocks, and blankets to fully support the body, aiming to activate its natural relaxation response. All poses are on the floor and are held for 6-15 minutes each. Come and unwind from the day and reconnect with your feeling body without much activity. It is a perfect complement to our more active yang style of classes.

Modified Primary Series - MPS [Ashtanga]
Modified Primary Series (MPS) is an intro to all Inbodhi's classes. Based on the traditional Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, the MPS class includes sun salutations, standing, and seated postures and introduces you to the breathing and movement techniques specific to Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga. This class has a steady tempo and more of a focus on alignment, holding the space for each and every student to find their own modification at their given level, making the practice accessible for all. MPS is a great homecoming practice to yoga rookies, as well as seasoned practitioners. It can introduce you to self-practice and always great class to revisit regularly. The first part of the class will start with a warm-up of sun salutations to build up heat. The standing series promotes balance and symmetry and aids in the process of health and purification of the body. The final part of the class is a deeper focus on seated postures with the intention of keeping poses modified and accessible to each student's individual level. Seated meditation and/or finishing sequence will conclude the practice with deep relaxation; savasana.
