Body and mind

Your time is precious and yoga is a brilliant way to make the most of your time.  It is one of the few forms of exercise where the connection between mind and body is a given. Even the word ‘yoga’ is widely accepted as meaning ‘union,’ i.e. union of our physical, mental and emotional. Yoga states that the union of these enables us experience our true nature or in other words find contentment and peace.  And we could all do with more of that in today’s frenetic world.

This idea of mind and body connection was lost in western culture but in recent years it has had a renaissance and been given credence in the scientific and medical community.

To get to the heart of it, yoga in a very ancient system of Indian well-being and self-improvement.  In the West we tend to focus the postures (asanas), breath (pranayama) and meditation (dhyana) but this is a tiny part of whole systematic approach on how to live a conscious life. As Socrates said the ‘unexamined life is not worth living.’

Frances Jordan

Frances came to yoga while studying, looking for an antidote to her racing brain, it worked and became a way of life.   She says ‘through yoga we have the potential to release physical, mental and emotional tension. In my classes we practice yoga postures, working with the breath and developing focus.   An invigorating physical practice is balanced with concentration/visualisation and relaxation. I draw from different yoga traditions, preferring a holistic and inclusive approach. Yoga brings clarity and peace and helps us to connect to our real selves. Everybody should practice Yoga!”

She is British Wheel of Yoga teacher (2008) teaching private lunchtime classes for civil service staff at Dept. of Health and locally at Better Gyms.

Susan Smith

Susan has been teaching yoga for over 20 years.  She particularly enjoys teaching newcomers and 3rd age generation adults.  She says ‘I love working with beginners it’s really rewarding to watch people grow as they develop confidence working in the postures. It’s a real pleasure to witness people finding inner peace as they learn the art of relaxation. Over time I watch people change shape, develop strength, flexibility and an inner radiance’.

Her style is gentle, yet challenging and she draws on her work as a Psychotherapist to incorporate stress management tools into her classes, encouraging students to take control of their minds, emotions and bodies.
