Namaste

Zen Yoga aims to teach inclusive classes, where everyone can feel the benefit of a holistic yoga practice. Don’t be scared that you’ll turn into Madonna! Yoga is as challenging as you want to make it; it’s your yoga journey. Each pose can be adapted to suit beginners or enhanced for more expert yogis.

Yoga is a fantastic complementary exercise to other sport – the self-awareness gained through yoga helps you to identify quickly any latent issues to work on with yoga, or to help support and repair after injury.

If you’re already active, and interested in how yoga could help you stay mobile into older age, a quick look at Debbie McGee dancing on Strictly in 2017 will show you what yoga might do for you!

View the current timetable here, and contact us for more information on class availability. Up-to-date yoga news is available on our Facebook page.

Each class contains a warm-up (Surya Namaskar or Sun Salutations), standing and seated poses, finishing postures, breathing (Pranayama) and finally, relaxation time (Savasana). On Mondays, the difference with Vinyasa Flow is that some poses are linked together with a common Vinyasa movement which maintains flexibility and body heat, to enhance stretching. This is entirely optional though, depending on your energy levels, health and aims that day.

Currently, the Thursday evening and Friday lunchtime classes are guided at a much slower pace than the Monday class, to enable those newer to yoga practice to settle into the Primary Series, and to focus on technique in Asana.

About Annabel

I’m Annabel Wallis BSYA and I’ve been practising yoga for over 16 years. I set up Zen Yoga with encouragement from my previous yoga teachers.

Having been taught by such inspiring people as Brian Cooper, John Scott, Liz Lark, Danny Paradise, Richard Freeman and Lino Miele, I decided to train as a yoga teacher myself, taking the initial step of training with the British School of Yoga.

I enjoy the challenge and focus that yoga brings to my day – nothing is like it for a journey in self-discovery and strength. As I get older, I listen to my body and practise with mindfulness – hence why I now teach Vinyasa Flow and slower classes.

I regularly attend workshops and training with inspiring teachers, with the aim of enhancing both my practice, my knowledge and my teaching, and I undertake further professional development every year to improve my own understanding of our amazing bodies and the remedial effects of yoga.

In 2017, I qualified to teach Children’s Yoga and Mindfulness classes with Chrysalis Yoga and Creative Calm. If you’re interested in starting an after-school club for your child, please get in touch.

I’m also a member of the Independent Yoga Network and the Register of Exercise Professionals.
