Hatha Yoga for vitality and inner peace

What my students say:

 

 I found it enormously helpful.  I have, my doctor thinks, a pinched nerve which causes pain in the groin and down  my right leg.  It is more than annoying – it is painful and makes me feel my body is falling apart.  But the floor sequence of gentle

movements today were really fantastic.  They got that leg moving and lessened the pain.       Liz M  June 2022

 

“Attending one of Pam’s Summer Renewal Programs is one of the best gifts you can offer yourself to celebrate the beginning of a new year!  Expect to be gently guided through specific Asana practices, Pranayama,  Meditation, Chanting and other nourishing rituals to help you to find freshness, vitality and a renewed sense of purpose to start the year.  Pam’s detailed notes, insights and story telling always provide you with new Yoga concepts and practical approaches to incorporate into your daily life.  This is a wholly enjoyable experience and a wonderful way to begin anew!”   Trish O'N 2023
 

The Summer Renewal Program with Pam is a pleasurable, effective and nurturing way to “re set” and centre ourselves for the year ahead.  The three morning sessions offer an opportunity to  focus the mind, stretch and strengthen the body and replenish the soul through a deeper understanding of yoga practices. Pam is a  skilled  teacher who prioritises safety for our individual needs. Being with a small group creates additional energy as well as a sense of shared experience and fun!  Lyn M. Jan 2022

 

Yoga with Pam has improved my gait which was hampered by lymphedema and lipedema. Yoga movement and breathing helps my lymph to flow freely. It helps relieve my tight calf and hamstring muscles and has improved my leg strength. It has improved my cardio fitness and helped relieve chronic pain in my knees. Yoga has reduced my lower back pain and helped with the stress which accompanies chronic pain. Yoga is beneficial for my mental health and calms my nervous system. The strategies learnt can be used at any high stress time. Yoga has improved my life in many ways and is a key element of my wellness routine.  Sheryl 2021

 

I was super happy last night at Yoga. I feel like my body is remembering that I can do some of the Asanas without pain or discomfort.  As my physio has told me my whole nervous system needs to be gently coaxed out of hyper protective mode and reacting by switching muscles into extreme tension.  With your help I am slowly, slowly retraining my nervous system and mind.  Thank you!

i have been lucky enough to attend yoga classes with Pam for the last 8 years, firstly in the recovery class, then in a general class.  Pam has a deep knowledge of yog as a philosophy and teaches us so mych along with our yoga poses.  After each class I feel restored and refreshed in body,  mind and spirit.  A highlight of my week!

Elizabeth Hall July 2019

 

'Pam is both a pragmatic and an inspirational teacher, with a deep understanding of physiology. After doing her classes, I am far more flexible, strong and balanced, both physically and mentally. She has taught me valuable meditation skills, and after practicing meditation I am better able to stay calm in difficult situations, as well as being more aware of my life’s purpose.'

Katie Mills Aug 2018

 

I was so thankful recently for my yoga practice when I was in hospital in Cambodia with a broken elbow. The medical care I received was excellent, but it was my breathing practice that kept me calm, and my core strength developed over many years with our wonderful teacher Pam that enabled me to successfully come through a challenging situation.

Welcome to my studio for group classes or private tuition

 

Do you need a fresh start for your personal peace of mind? I can help you to create a new way of being  - simplified, more focussed, more reflective.  Are you unsettled or anxious, losing strength and mobility, not sleeping well?  I'm so glad you have found vitalyoga.

 

 

 I can help you to take charge of your wellbeing again!  Slow mindful Yoga is gentle yet powerful. 

 Discover how to shore up the nervous system, rebalance emotions, release stress, revitalise and strengthen the body. Vitalyoga can awaken connection to the peace and joy of your Higher Self that is deep inside.

 

 

If like me, you're of mature age, you're especially welcome!  I specialise in helping people towards healthy aging, and  recovering from health challenges and pain. We all have creeping or niggling physical and emotional restrictions, perhaps overwhelm or anxiety.  If not now then when? Take steps towards living your best self.

Private sessions are especially helpful to focus on your individual needs. Great for mature age and beginner students, or if you're seeking Healing after major health disruption.  Many have found strength,confidence and peace after their cancer treatment.

Pam's teaching ethos  

 

Resilience helps us to move through life and deal with whatever it dishes out - including pandemic challenges!  Vitalyoga classes boost

physical and mental resilience with slow, mindful movement, breathing & chanting practices and meditation. We are multidimensional beings so I utilise practices that may release the deep knots - the landmines, and open up the treasure chests - the joy and wellbeing that is our innate true nature.

 

 

Self-care nourishes our wellbeing.  Classes are 'innercise' rather than 'exercise and we can then flow more freely to optimise  potential...

 

 

Gandhi said something like: Live everyday as though it may be your last.  Learn everyday as though you will live forever.

 

 I will look after your bad back, your chronic condition, so you find more ease, and functionality. Need to go gently after surgery?  I can support you towards mind-body wholeness by designing your personal home practice. You will be in safe hands.

 

 

Have you heard that Yoga is a medical recommendation for chronic back pain conditions? My specialised training includes Yoga for Pain Care, Grad Dip Yoga for Back Care, Recovery after cancer treatment, iRest(R)  Yoga Nidra meditation L2 - a resource for wellbeing. Meditation facilitates neurplasticity so the brain can change its entrenched thought patterns.  My Pain Care students get positive results!

 

 

Your capacity for self-reflection, feeling capable, content, and calm will blossom.  You will flourish!

 

My passion is helping people enjoy wellbeing. After 20 years of teaching Yoga, I find there's even more to love!
