Classes are given in an open, relaxed and safe environment providing a sanctuary from your everyday life. Most classes are a dynamic flow style of yoga (definition below) and are suitable for people at all levels, as modifications are given during postures. Carefully compiled playlists are used to complement the sequences. Music can help you to relax into postures, transport you from your daily routine and deepen your practice. Classes are fun, relaxed, sometimes challenging and definitely rewarding. I offer a number of classes throughout the week, as well as 1-to-1's.
'Flow Yoga' is a type of vinyasa style yoga, harmonising breath and movement to give strength, grace and freedom. Vinyasa is a Sanskrit word which describes the way one moves from one asana (posture) to another, the link between the intention and the full pose. In vinyasa flow yoga you use the breath to move from one posture into another, moving through a sequence of postures in a kind of moving meditation

the harmony of the soul create the symphony of life" BKS Iyengar
Having never tried yoga before I was unsure of what to expect when I attended my first lesson with Danny however I needn't have worried. Danny is an excellent teacher who provides warm and encouraging feedback throughout the class and takes the time to explain the poses thoroughly. She also takes the time to really understand the motivation of her students as well as any health issues they may have. I'm a keen runner and Danny has been advising me on how yoga will work to supplement my running routine. I've really enjoyed her classes and can already feel an improvement in my abilities after just four sessions. I'm definitely a convert!
Having studied dance throughout my youth, I took my first yoga class in 1995 and became hooked. My knowledge of form and posture gained through dance enhanced the awakening of my body and the flow of movement in yoga.
I have practised various yoga styles, (Astanga, Iyengar, Bikram, Jivamukti, Vinyasa Flow). I completed my Yoga Alliance 200hr yoga teacher training at the beginning of 2014 and am currently attending the unity post graduate programme IYN with Unity brighton.
Yoga practice is a journey which unfolds through time and may become a way of life. For me classes leave me feeling energised focused and give strength to my mind, body and soul. I hope you will find my classes and music uplifting, refreshing and you will leave feeling Yoga-fit
