Embodied Vinyasa Flow – Fridays 12.15 – 1.15pm in the Studio
Vinyasa flow yoga with emphasis on alignment, breath and hands on feedback. Hazel as a Chiropractor applies her knowledge of the body to provide an informed class that is both challenging but also appropriate for all abilities and those with injuries. The class starts with breath work, moving into flowing postures and finishes with more restorative deep poses adapted as required for each student. Hazel has an informal, welcoming approach. If you have any questions please do get in touch.
Hey, I am Hazel, thank you for checking out my profile.
My journey to yoga has been perhaps slightly different to most as I began by teaching Body Balance whilst working as a fitness instructor in a gym, over fifteen years ago. It took me another ten years to start up practising yoga again and then I well truly caught the bug. What started back as a hobby, soon became a passion, which is now an integral part of me.
I lead a busy life as a Chiropractor, treating patients and managing my business. During this time, the business has expanded, and I have also been studying for an MBA. Although this has been successful, the past ten years have been exceedingly stressful, and my work-life balance was completely off kilter. Over the past five years I have been working to readdress this imbalance and get back to what is important. Yoga has been the means to make this happen and completing my 500-hour teacher training at Yogasara has been the most important step towards my new way of life. Alongside this, I have sold most of my belongings and now live on a canal boat, so life has certainly been interesting of late.
In my classes, I teach a Vinyasa flow style of yoga where I enjoy linking postures with the breath. The classes are taught in a kramic approach, where the movements are broken down for varying abilities. This allows the classes to be suitable for absolute beginners and those improvers, as well as anyone suffering from an injury. I utilise my Chiropractic knowledge in providing specific feedback to my students both with hands on facilitations and after class discussions. I generally do not take myself too seriously and the classes are very relaxed and informal. Thank you for reading my profile and please do feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. The whole world of yoga can be a crazy and confusing place and I do believe that there really is a class for everyone.
Be the change you want to see in the world.
