Monday Evening Class for Beginners

posted 16 Apr 2013, 16:36 by Lisa Morris   [ updated 19 Sep 2014, 02:23 ]

I have taken the plunge and decided to open up my home studio in the evening to beginners.

This new class on a Monday evening will be specifically for new students to yoga, with a view to moving the students towards a safe practise in the calm and quiet space of my home studio.

There will be a maximum of 8 students that night and therefore the places are limited. Students will get plenty of time for learning, building strength and stamina with relaxation and adjustments. There will be a friendly learning atmosphere, where all questions will be welcomed.

Students need to learn the postures in their own time, developing understanding and self awareness. This process will be individual and gradual with some people moving faster and others taking a little longer. There is no formula to learning and sometimes those who take longer understand how to do the work better. When understanding is achieved and the postures have been learned it will be time to move onto the general class and then eventually  an intermediate class.

NOTE: As soon as I announced this class it filled up quickly, but it's worth asking if there is space as I will make a waiting list and call if a place becomes available. I will always try and accommodate people who would like to try the class, so please call as I may be able to fit you in. 

Good news - March 2013

By now many of my students know I have been attempting to train and get the to the next level of qualified teacher status. 
So I am delighted to announce that today I managed to pass the exam and I am now a qualified junior intermediate level 1 teacher. 

Thanks go to the patint students who have ben very supportive and sending me kind messages and words leading up to the exam. Also I must credit and give thanks to some of the amazing teachers who have helped me on my journey of understanding to enable me to acheive the higher qualification. 

Ros Bell, Alaric Newcombe, Uday Bhosale from Pune, Sheila Haswell.

Special thanks to Diana Clifton, who is an inspiration and a joy to spend time with, thank you for welcoming me into your home to learn from you and your amazing husband.

I will never be more gratfeful than to my long term teacher the wonderful Patsy Sparksman. Without Patsy, I would never have had the courage to try and become a yoga teacher, she inspires me still, 13 years on. 

In London, we are blessed to have some of the best teachers in the world.  These inspiring teachers have all shared their  knowledge, time, patience and invaluable guidance. For that I am tremendously grateful. 

My wish is to be able to share the gift of yoga to my students in order that they can reap the immeasurable benefits.

Love and light

New Thursday daytime classes - Autumn 2012

posted 12 Feb 2012, 15:54 by Lisa Morris   [ updated 10 Dec 2012, 04:20 ]

Thursday mornings and Thursday afternoons are going well and still have spaces ( October 2012)

Thursday Mornings - 9.45 to 11.15 am 
Thursday Afternoons - 12.45 to 2.15pm

These are both held in my home studio, they are small sized classes with limited numbers, please enquire with me directly for more information about whether there is any space available.

Depending on the students who come along, I will vary the classes to meet the needs of the yoga students.

All classes are currently suitable for all ages, abilities and strengths, as I offer adaptations to those who need them.

Monday Morning - in home studio

posted 21 Dec 2011, 16:47 by Lisa Morris   [ updated 10 Dec 2012, 04:21 ]

9.45 to 11.15 am  Monday morning class is a quiet class with plenty of room for more people ( at the moment only 3 people in regular attendance, October 2012).

This class is held in my home so you will need to email me if you would like to join the class as it is limited numbers. If you prefer to work on your postures in a smaller environment this is the class for you.

You can start any time as there is no set pattern for the classes, we work on the postures that the students in the class need to work on so it depends who comes along that day.

Yoga and back pain. The article below goes on to mention that during a study of over 300 patients, those who attended between 6 and 12 yoga classes over the course of 12 weeks (many were Iyengar classes) found their back pain to have eased significantly, compared to a group who received normal care through their GP. http://www.york.ac.uk/news-and-events/features/yoga-back-pain/

Wednesday Morning - over 50's and beginners

posted 8 Nov 2011, 07:39 by Lisa Morris   [ updated 10 Dec 2012, 04:21 ]

This class will continue through the summer of 2012 and through the Autumn term.

My lovely over 50's ladies have been doing wonderfully on a Wednesday morning with some great get togethers for their regular coffee mornings after class. 

One of my long-term students' celebrated her 80th birthday last week and I hope she doesn't mind me saying that her new found shoulder stand, after slow recovery from a shoulder problem, is one of the things I am very proud of her for achieving. Congratulations Mehroo!

The dedication, commitment and 'willingness to try' postures of all  the lovely Wednesday ladies is an inspiration to me!

Tuesday Night in Bushey - Update July 2012

posted 8 Nov 2011, 07:38 by Lisa Morris   [ updated 10 Dec 2012, 04:21 ]

Now is a good time to come along to try the class following summer holidays.

Class dates 

Classes resume on Tuesday September 4th, 

FOR ONE WEEK ONLY - Tuesday 11th will change to Wednesday 12th

Normal class on Tuesday 18th September

There will be no class September 25th (for One week only)

October 2nd and subsequent weeks, all classes return to normal
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The atmosphere in class is great and students are keen to learn and know more about the Iyengar system.

There is plenty of space within the hall and it just adds to the lovely ambiance. People of all sorts attend this class, younger people, more mature students and there are sometimes just as many men as women.

The ability level is varied too, some are students who are new to yoga and some have been attending classes for a long time. I therefore ensure that there are different options when teaching the postures, I will start with a beginner version and move onto more advanced version of the postures. This means that everyone can take the posture to their own level and work with their own abilities.

Everyone can learn something new and work to achieve better posture, alignment, strength, stamina and understanding.

The physical postures promote better health and can lead to self awareness and understanding, I hope to be able to assist everyone in improving themselves.
