Om Yoga Studio is situated in a beautifully refurbished Cotswold stone barn in the picturesque village of Overbuy Nr Tewkesbury.
The studio is a peaceful, warm calming space, where you will feel totally secure and relaxed.
I am a 500 hr RYT and I teach Hatha Yoga, Yin Yoga, Somatic Yoga, Gravity Yoga, Pranayama/Breath work and Yoga Nidra. Yoga unites the mind, body, and soul in a way that eases tension, reduces inflammation, and promotes health, healing and well being. Regular practice will help you reach and improve poses, correct posture and positioning, and improve your breathing balance and outlook on life.
Unlike many crowded Yoga studios, I only teach a maximum of 8 people per class. I can then assist everyone and make sure my classes are safe.
So pre booking is essential.
Unfortunately during Covid I have not been able to use the studio, we will be resuming classes in Overbury Village Hall and then move back into the studio.
Classes start again we hope on 17th May.
My studio houses all equipment needed, so you don't need to worry about bringing mats, blocks or bricks, just bring yourself and some water. (not during Covid)
Just on the odd occasion and also on request we may have a little Mini Dachshund with us for some dog therapy!
I have a long history with body rehabilitation. becoming a fitness instructor, personal trainer and a sports therapist in the early 1990's. After many years of struggling with intense pain and major back issues, Yoga bought a strength that I had not felt in a very long time. Realising what it had done for me, I decided that training as a Yoga instructor was my next important step. Firstly training for myself but later deciding to teach individuals who struggle with pain, back issues, anxiety, stress and those who just don't like large classes. Working in small groups or private sessions enables me to concentrate on the individual, adjusting poses to suit everyone. I use my many years of knowledge of the body, to work along side my clients who may have damage or weakness in parts of their bodies, using body strengthening as well as Yoga. I also work closely with an Osteopath in Cheltenham. Safety is my number one priority and you will feel safe and nurtured with my individual attention.
When people hear the word Yoga, they usually think of the physical postures or Asanas, which offer so many profound benefits for our body's flexibility, strength and balance.. However Yoga offers so much more than just a way to exercise the body, it also helps us to to experience emotional well being, encourages self healing and connect to our essential selves. Yoga translated mean union/yoke, joining body, mind and soul in one. A 5000 year old tradition, it has seen many changes over the years, with many new Yoga styles being born. However it will never lose its main focus, which is quieting the mind. Meditation is the most important part to any Yoga Practice, many think its not important, however those who think this, don't realise that moving through a range of Yoga Asana (poses) is a form of meditation! It is so important to take a break from daily life in order to focus on yourself and get clarity. Focusing on your breath during practice is key to staying in tune with your mind and body. Meditation classes especially Yoga Nidra, can have a huge positive effect on your mind and body. (see Yoga Nidra page) Yoga has many benefits, improves flexibility, builds muscle strength, protects your spine, betters your bone health, improves your mood, boosts your immune system, calms the nervous system, helps you focus, lowers blood pressure, lengthens muscles, helps you sleep, improves balance, plus so much more!
