Caroline Rose

Caroline came to Yoga in 2000, seeking relief from work related stress.

She was hooked instantly and continued her journey into Yoga at the Ipswich Buddhist Centre studying Sivananda Yoga, before exploring Hatha and Vinyasa flow styles, which led her to discovering the transformative power of Yoga.

After years of practice and a growing passion, she realised how Yoga had changed her forever anxious self into someone a lot more serene and able to deal with life’s curveballs in a calm way.

She decided to take Yoga Teacher Training and bring this wonderful experience to as many people as possible.

She trained with Brenda Louw from Chill Out Yoga in Suffolk and completed the Independent Yoga Network 200 Hour Teaching Diploma. During this training, she was encouraged to develop her own style and find her own voice.

Her classes are a thoughtful blend of breathwork, asanas (postures) and a meditative relaxation with a caring and inclusive approach and many modifications to suit all.

Caroline has since undertaken further training in Yoga in Mental health with Ellen Lee, Supporting students with Injury with Andrew McGonigle ( Dr Yogi), Yoga for Arthritis ( Yoga International) and is currently completing a course on Yoga Nidra (Yogic sleep) with Barefoot Body Training.

Lucy Greeves

I believe that our natural condition is to be comfortable in our own skins. Through yoga, I want to help my students rediscover this “happy body” state. Since I started teaching ten years ago, it has been my privilege to work with a great many students: each one of them unique, and each one of them longing to come home to their body in a way that felt meaningful, safe and right.

In my classes, we explore both static asana (physical postures) and flowing sequences, combined with breathing, meditation and relaxation techniques. As a student, you start from wherever you are on this particular day, learning to practise safely and with awareness as you cultivate a stronger, more balanced body and a calmer, more open mind.

I qualified as a teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2010. My further formal training has included modules in trauma-sensitive yoga and yoga for anxiety and depression.

MINDFUL FLOW YOGA 
Wed 6-7.15pm / £10 drop-in / £50 for 6 classes

In this class we keep the pace fairly slow and steady, often moving through sequences of postures but leaving plenty of time to breathe and explore the optimal alignment for you. It’s a gentle but thoroughly strengthening approach, suitable for most people except complete beginners.

INTRODUCTION TO YOGA 4 WEEK COURSE 
Wed 7.30-9pm / £50 (starting 6 November / 15 Jan / 4 March)

This empowering course is great for people coming back to yoga after injury, childbirth or a long break, as well as for complete newcomers. Over 4 sessions, we explore the basics of yoga movement, breathing and balance, as well as enjoying deep, guided relaxation. Perhaps most importantly, we practise interoception (sensing what’s happening in my body) and self-determination (making choices based on what I feel), building confidence and laying the foundations for a lifelong practice.

Mindfulness for Chronic Pain at the Manor Health & Wellness Centre

Eight-week course, meeting on Sunday afternoons from 2 – 4 pm (begins 1st March 2020).

Living with chronic pain can be isolating, debilitating, stressful and demoralising.  Sometimes even exercising can lead to flare ups and fatigue, making us withdraw from activity, which in turn affects our fitness and wellbeing.  Mindfulness meditation and practices have been shown in studies to be effective for helping chronic pain sufferers cope with their condition more effectively and in some cases reduce incidences of flare-ups and inflammation.  This introductory eight-week course on Mindfulness for Chronic Pain will cover the principles of mindfulness in relation to health in mind and body and provide a variety of practices designed to calm the nervous system, ease pain and help with fear and negative thoughts relating to both pain and illness.

Course dates:   1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, 29th March & 5th, 19th 26th April 2020.

Course fee: £150.00 (includes resources)

Yoga & Spirituality  –  six month personal development course.

Course dates for 2020 (10th May, 7th June, 12th July, 13th Sept, 11th Oct, 15th Nov)

Bhakti Yoga is the Yoga of Devotion and for some a doorway to spiritual enlightenment.  Many of the yoga practices that we know from our modern day classes seem to have a practical health and wellbeing oriented purpose to them but we don’t all experience them or practice them as a pathway to spiritual growth.  Nevertheless, many ancient yogic texts speak of enlightenment, discovery of the Self, the loss of the ego and ultimately of union with the Divine. Indeed, in past centuries/millennia, yoga was often taught only to priests, monks and spiritual seekers.

This six month course (1 full Sunday per month from 10 am – 4pm) examines some of the classical yogic texts concerned with spiritual enlightenment and discovery of the so-called Self, with a view to understanding more about the origins of yoga and the historical/philosophical and religious influences that have shaped it.  Students will also learn yogic practices and concentration/meditation techniques that enable us to find the quiet space within for either self-nourishment and personal growth or for the purposes of devotion/connectivity to God / Higher Consciousness.

Please note, this course is not “religious” in terms of being oriented to one particular faith. It is open to persons of any faith or agnostics and those with an open, enquiring mind.

Suitable for those with at least two years of consistent yoga practice. 

Course fee £325.00
