"Chie's prenatal yoga is great for body awareness" - Carla

Remember that you are entitled to time off work to attend a prenatal yoga class. If you are more than 36 weeks pregnant then you can drop into the class subject to space being available - call or email to check.

with Martina Elter

Cancer challenges you and your family to the limit.

 

Cancer also often affects your self-image and self-esteem. Possible changes in physical appearance and depleted health can be frightening.

How can well-being succeed in this precarious time?

 

In terms of your own well being and recovery it is important to try to take good care of yourself as much as possible. Yoga has a lot to offer for this and an increasing amount of research is confirming its huge benefits; especially for the mental and emotional well being.

 

In its holistic practice, Yoga can support coping with the treatment and dealing with side effects like fatigue or lymphedema.

Equally, it supports managing the experience after the treatments, overcoming fears and finding life goals again. In this course we explore various tools you can use to cope with cancer so you can personalise the practice to your own needs.

 


Martina is a Yoga teacher and holds a master’s degree in Social Pedagogy specialising in humanistic counselling, community work, education and health promotion.

Just before Christmas 2013 she was diagnosed with breast cancer which turned her life upside down. Her tumour as an ‘uninvited guest’ she used her Yoga practice in a holistic way to support her recovery.

The last two years Martina began to share her learning on this journey by offering a specific workshop and in one-to-one sessions for clients.

with Fiona McIntosh

This is a more gentle Pilates class.  Ideal for anyone who is new to Pilates' work or is suffering from more than just the normal daily aches and pains.  The class when it was held in the Studio had a maximum number of 8 so that everyone could practice their Pilates knowing they will still benefit from appropriate individual advice/correction.  So even though this class is being streamed through Zoom the numbers are restricted so that I can give some individual correction.
