Style(s): Ashtanga, Dynamic, Restorative
I began practicing yoga in 1990 and (apart from a short break around the birth of my third child) have practiced continuously ever since. After 15 years of Iyengar yoga practice, however, a chance Ashtanga class in 2007 changed both my practice and the direction of my life. An apprenticeship with Debbie Blunden and teacher training with John Scott eventually followed. In 2017, I travelled to Mysore to study with Sharath Jois (for the first time, but hopefully not the last). Currently, I am training as a yoga therapist with The Minded Institute.
My classes are traditional Ashtanga, which emphasises ‘tristhana’ – breath, bandha and focused attention – as a method for achieving self-transformation. I look forward to sharing this wonderful practice with you! :)
I am profoundly grateful to the teachers who helped my find my path (Debbie Blunden, Eileen Gauthier, Greg Nardi, David Keil, John and Lucy Scott, and Hamish Hendry) for their depth of knowledge and insight, and for being a constant inspiration – and for the support of my husband and children, who put up with a lot…!
Dates for your diary
Owing to Caroline taking on additional teaching commitments elsewhere, the last Sunday morning self practice class will be on 2 December 2018.
Thursday evening self-practice classes on the following dates will be covered by Jo (please do still come to class – regular practice is important!)
Thurs 13 December
Thurs 20 December
Thurs 17 January
The next Assisted Self-Practice beginners course runs from 10 January to 28 February (more details on the Workshops page).
Beginners course start time is 7.00pm.
Assisted self practice start time (for students already familiar with Mysore self practice) is 5.45-6.15pm. The opening chant is at 6.00pm.
Self-practice students should aim to finish their practice by 8.00pm.
The beginners guided Ashtanga class time remains unchanged (8.00pm-9.15pm). This class is suitable for complete beginners and those with more yoga experience. We focus on breaking down key asana techniques and providing thoughtful modifications that make the practice accessible to everyone. Good practice for both avoiding and working with injuries is included. This class is also great for those returning to yoga after a break, and those who just enjoy a slower, more relaxed class.
