Helen believes in teaching people, not just poses. Her classes incorporate mindfulness, breath and positive intention with asana, to nurture the practice of those who are just beginning their journey into yoga, as well as those who have an established practice.
Helen encourages you and all her students to observe and enjoy the transitions into the poses and provides modification suggestions to allow you to go farther into or back out of a pose while still reaping the benefits.
As a student of the human body and philosophy, she provides practical information about how the poses affect the physical, mental and spiritual body to promote the pursuit of equanimity in your practice and life.
Helen began practicing yoga in the 1990s, maintaining a sporadic practice while raising three children. As her children became more independent, her practice deepened and became an anchor in her life. She noticed that maintaining a regular yoga practice helped her clarity and decision making off the mat as much as it helped her body, mind and spirit on the mat and she decided to share her passion and knowledge with others through teaching.
She began her journey into teaching yoga, becoming certified as a vinyasa yoga teacher (200 hour) through Power Yoga Works in Malvern (2014) and is currently working toward a 200/500 hour Hatha certification.
Helen believes that yoga is for every body and makes sure to pay attention to the students in her classes, cueing modifications and alignment adjustments as needed, allowing all practitioners to receive the benefits of the practice. Her classes provide tips for ways that yoga can be incorporated into daily life, whether on or off the mat.
