The Friday Session – Fridays 12.15 – 1.15pm in the Studio
The Friday Session is a lunchtime 60-minute Vinyasa flow yoga class, that is a blend of flowing dynamic movements combined with more relaxing, restorative postures. The class is suitable for all levels and there is a strong emphasis on alignment, posture and breath. Hazel utilises her knowledge as a Chiropractor to offer specific hands on guidance during the class in an informal environment, with a few tunes thrown in for good measure. The perfect way to start your weekend the right way.
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.
