White Crane Tai Chi

Tai Chi is an ancient Chinese discipline which exercises the body and mind. The pattern or form is a sequence of flowing movements. When practiced it can improve co-ordination, flexibility in muscles and joints, improving concentration and discipline by relieving stress and tension and increasing awareness. Breathing exercises improve the lungs, reducing high blood pressure, increasing blood circulation and improve stamina and energy. Tai chi depends on awareness and sensitivity, rather then strength and speed. The movements also teach self-defence.

Hatha Yoga

Yoga is a personal experience and in my class, with a combination of physical poses (asanas), breathing practices (pranayama) and relaxation, through time, you will develop a stronger, more flexible, creative and balanced body. Your mind is kept alert but relaxed. You will be encouraged to practice through a non-competitive approach, always being mindful of your breathing and body alignment. Fun is allowed! Beginners are welcomed. I hold a BWY diploma and have been an accredited teacher for 10 years.

Gentle Yoga

A gentle class which covers yoga postures, breathing techniques, relaxation and meditation.  The focus is on exploration and encouraging a deeper connection with the body. It is also about developing flexibility, inner strength, calming the mind and wellbeing.  Everyone is welcome to join, whether new to yoga or an accomplished student.  Marielle has studied with many yoga teachers over the last twenty years and her style is particularly influenced by Vanda Scaravelli.
