Creative Yoga Motion 2021
All lessons are sequences of Somatic Movements, based on the teachings of Thomas Hanna and evolving with my experience of exploring Somatics and Feldenkrais and facets of neuromuscular movement and Gentle Hatha yoga that again has evolved due to experiencing multiply joint arthritis and working with many students who have movement challenges.
Classes are £30.00
for 4 lessons, plus the recording available for the following 6 days, so you can practice every day, at anytime. Maria
Online Classes were created so I could continue to bring the same benefits of Somatic gentle yoga for you to have an at home practice during the Coronavirus pandemic. I have made the decision to continue to teach online and feel it is the most responsible way forward for us to continue to feel safe and protected.
Your home practice will be via zoom class & a recording of the lesson to use the following week. In Somatic Yoga lessons you will experience the power of positivity and gentleness. You are able to book the online Zoom lessons below by Paypal. If you wish to pay by bacs please email me.
I am currently living in France and online classes are available to anyone in the world. If you would like to join our community of dedicated students, please book a class below and email me for any further information you would like. Maria

Please acknowledge during a zoom mat class I cannot see you clearly. If you have any health concerns that affect your movement please email me with this information. Please tune into your body with loving kindness during your practice, use variation of movements that are suitable for your unique body, and those that you have been made aware of in your face to face class. I will guide you to the best of my ability, however, you are totally responsible for taking take of yourself.
Disclaimer. Please acknowledge, you must accept complete responsibility for your own safety and only move within your own individual range of movement and where you feel you need to use a variation to suit your unique body please be guided by your own intuition. Your skill of listening not only to my guidance in directing you but also to your own inner yes of knowing that if it feels right then it probably is right. As many of you know I do not 'do' the movements for you to copy. You are exploring your own experience and focusing on the internal sensation of the movement and not the outward appearance of any posture. I can in no way be held responsible for accidents or injuries. Should you have any health concerns, questions or queries please email me and I will do all I can to assist you. Thank you, Maria
