Yoga has many benefits including increasing flexibility, building strength, improving posture, increasing blood flow, uping heart rate, boosting immunity, helping you focus, improving your balance, releasing tension and aiding relaxation. Moving the body in yoga postures can help lift your mood, increase circulation and helps you focus your mind. Breathing in postures helps you to focus on your breath. Relaxation at the end of a Yoga class, can release muscular and nervous tension and aid a sense of calm and peace. Both Aromatherapy and Yoga complement each other as tools to aid relaxation and manage physical, emotional and psychological changes, as well as creating awareness within yourself to make choices beneficial to yourself.
Jane is a member of the Complementary Therapists Association and British Wheel of Yoga.
TestimonialsHere are a few testimonials from some of my clients:-From L. Jackson:
I had been suffering from a bad back on and off for a couple of years to the point where I was in pretty much constant discomfort and nothing seemed to be helping ease it. I found Janey’s yoga classes earlier this year and I loved the classes from the start. They are friendly, supportive and there is no pressure to tie yourself up in knots! The practice is varied and also has a lovely meditative quality about it. Within a few weeks my back had already improved and a few months on I am pretty much pain and stiffness free. The classes have also had the added bonus of helping me de-stress.
One to ones
Having improved my back through Janey’s yoga classes it became apparent that my right leg had some issues resulting in pain in my hip, knee and ankle. I have now had a few one to one sessions with Janey to literally help me learn to walk properly again. These sessions always leave me feeling like I have a real bounce in my stride. Through them I am also learning how to subtly change the way I sit, stand or walk to help my body, rather than cause it problems.From C. Barrett:
Is lifesaver too extreme?? I think not, as that is exactly what Janey has done for me. When I first met Janey, I was in a very difficult place, mentally and physically. I was nurtured, challenged, encouraged and inspired to dig deeper than ever before who knew I had the will to find myself emotionally and spiritually, well Janey did. And at this stage of my journey I am eternally grateful.From: The Rowlands Family:
Janey is the best yoga teacher we’ve ever had and has helped our family so much. Our teenage kids really enjoy our family class which Janey adapts to what we need on the night; be it strength, stamina,stretching or relaxation. We are so grateful to her.From N. Jefferson:
I took up one-to-one yoga with Janey to help manage overwhelming work related stress and insomnia. As a person who previously did lots of cardio type exercise I was sceptical that yoga would do much for my body. My aim was simply to try and reduce my stress levels.
Janey takes a very holistic approach to sessions with the mind and body of equal importance. I felt safe to share my troubles with her and she always remembered where we were up to in my ‘story’. Sessions are always tailored to what I would like to focus on but I have found I have enjoyed discovering the breadth of possible positions /sequences by asking Janey to design each session as she chooses.
I have found learning yoga from scratch with Janey a complete eye- opener! Yoga exercises parts of me I didn’t know existed and makes me sweaty and breathless (in a good way) like cardio. I have noticed that my body is much more toned than ever before, particularly my arms, without making me look butch!
I love the relaxation part of each session at the end and usually don’t want to move from the corpse position at the end!
Janey has given me tips on how to use similar relaxation tips to help me sleep at night and I find these really useful.
Now that my work stresses have resolved I see yoga as an integral part of my life. Something to challenge me physically now but something I can continue as I age with the background benefits of relaxation.
I cannot recommend Janey’s Yoga highly enough.
