slow flow yoga : all levels


This class is taught by:

Catrin Osborne

Catrin teaches dynamic and slow flow classes, as well as restorative yoga and yoga nidra. Her classes always pay attention to alignment and offer a deep, guided relaxation at the end.

Catrin trained with Yoga Haven on their 200 hour Yoga Alliance programme which she loved for its non-dogmatic approach and careful attention to both the physical and the philosophical practice of yoga. She trained with Roger Cole in Restorative Yoga and completed her Yoga Nidra teacher training with Uma Dinsmore-Tuli and Nirlipta Tuli. She also trained in Yoga Adjustments with Nova Milesko and remains constantly inspired by a wide range of teachers.

Catrin used to be an aerialist and as well as her teaching also runs a theatre circus company called Osborne & What. She teaches yoga for actors at Fourth Monkey and RADA, and has set up www.stokeyyoga.co.uk.

Frankie Walker

Expect classes with attentive alignment and playful exploration, infused with warmth, encouragement and a deep understanding of the postures, practices and philosophy of yoga.
 
Frankie discovered yoga while studying performance and quickly developed a self practice. From a book. With soft focus images of ladies in leotards standing on their heads. Fortunately she then got some expert guidance from Iyenger teachers. She later travelled, lived and worked across India for 12 years and began her teacher training at the Sivananda ashram, followed by a 200-hour teacher training in Pranayama with Prahladha Reddy.

She later trained with Usha Devi and other senior Iyenger teachers, practised Mysore-style Ashtanga, dynamic vinyasa krama with Stewart Gilchrist, and finally met John Stirk who introduced her to the work of Vanda Scaravelli and her profoundly wise approach of going with the body, not against it, of deeply listening to what underpins our need to move. She also draws from classical Osteopathy, Cranio-Sacral therapy and Feldenkrais, understanding that how we approach ourselves and engage with our body-mind has an enormous effect on the benefits we reap from our practice, both short and long term, on and off the mat.
 
Frankie continues to work and train regularly with John, practising with, and assisting Scaravelli-inspired teacher Catherine Annis and working with Restorative and Somatics teacher Aki Omori. She is continuously studying Embodied Embryology and Functional Anatomy.

Scarlett Perdereau

Scarlett teaches with emphasis on dynamic alignment, quality of breath and mindfulness. Expect steady-paced sequences that explore the anatomy of the body in movement as well as the subtle, energetic body.

Scarlett originally joined Yogahome as a ballet and contemporary dance teacher in 2006. She started teaching yoga here in 2010 and joined Maria in the office as studio manager in 2014.

She completed the Yogacampus teacher training in 2011 with Susanne Lahusen as her main teacher. She is grateful to have learnt over the years from teachers Anna Ashby, Catherine Annis, Alaric Newcombe, Julie Martin, Alessandra Peccorella, Alan Finger, Katrina Repka, and at the Sivananda Yoga Vedanta centre in Kerala. Her approach is also informed by her studies in Somatics during an MA at London Contemporary Dance School, and career in movement and dance.


Kimann Jones

 
Kimann teaches from a classical Hatha approach, incorporating a slow flow of traditional poses infused with functional and strength-based movement. She is experienced in teaching people of all abilities, so expect to be supported as she adapts the practice to suit everyone.


Kimann has completed the British Wheel of Yoga-accredited teacher training diploma with Triyoga, and she remains involved in the programme as a teaching assistant. She is currently completing a 100-hour certification with Bo Forbes, and about to embark on her 300-hour advanced teaching certification with Jason Crandell.


Kimann teaches in public and corporate settings, one to ones and small groups. She also draws on her clinical background as an occupational therapist to teach in charities, health and educational settings to individuals with a wide range of abilities.

Sally-Anne Reynolds

Sally-Anne has developed a love of yoga since childhood, and experimented with Ashtanga, Hatha, Iyengar and Bikram, before establishing her practice in Jivamukti and Vinyasa Flow. She trained in India and Sri Lanka with Quantum Yoga Founder, Lara Baumann, and Judith Daniels, and studied Veda Yoga in India with Ayurvedic doctor and teacher, Ajay Sharma.

She teaches dynamic, flowing classes, practised to an uplifting beat, and a more gentle and restorative style of yoga, helping people of all levels to find space and peace within. Whether dynamic or restorative, Sally-Anne's classes help students find their centre, by encouraging a deep connection within. Students of all levels, ages, shapes and sizes can expect to have fun, improve flexibility, strengthen and tone, while also becoming more conscious, mindfully connecting with their inner self. Sally-Anne believes in yoga as a total way of life, dedicated to a healthy, balanced lifestyle, plus kindness and compassion for oneself and others.

A flowing practice for anyone seeking attention to detail or in need of a gentler pace whilst still moving through creative sequences of poses. It is relevant to beginners as much as advanced practitioners, and welcomes pregnant women and those recovering from injury.

The slower pace allows for a focus on precision, alignement and breath, letting you make the practice as thorough and challenging or as gentle as you need it to be, with options to rest. Slow, mindful movement creates a space for the body to adapt and unwind, and for the postures to flow with stability and lightness like a moving meditation.
