Move with Equanimity

My movement classes are all focused on functional movement practices to support everyday living activities to promote healthy ageing. I draw upon my background in Pilates and Yoga practises and add a somatic, whole mind and body approach to movement.

The aim of the classes is to provide movement practices that promote healthy ageing that are accessible to everybody. My classes are suitable for people with any underlying health conditions and older people. The classes are totally suitable for beginners in movement practices.

The classes offer modifications and alternative exercises so that you can participate in a group class and feel that you are doing movement that suits your own personal needs, and not that of the rest of the group. You will receive that personal attention and support that is often missing in large general group classes. You will therefore get all the benefits of the social aspect of group participation, without feeling left behind or fearing that you are holding the group back.

The class modifications and adaptations are also suitable for people carrying additional weight, who want to find a movement that suits their body shape. Many general classes do not take into consideration body size modifications, and this is often a barrier for many people.
