Shen yoga is a form of hatha yoga; a practice which simultaneously addresses mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well being.
Yoga literally re sculpts our mental/physical landscapes, releasing unhelpful patterns of thought along with limiting or damaging habits of posture and movement.
Drawing from an inexhaustible love of nature and the body, I practice and teach a flowing, breath-led, meditative style of hatha yoga, ….I love to creatively combine core strength and dynamic flow, with more gentle inner qualities of simple presence, listening, non-competetiveness, and embodied enquiry…
Shen massage is a form of holistic, intuitive bodywork, based on shiatsu, with elements of Thai yoga and deep tissue massage. I sometimes describe the treatment as “like having yoga done to you“; it is a sort of meditation for both participants, anchored in breath awareness and sensitivity of touch.
The treatment takes place on a futon at ground level, enabling a creative and less effortful use of body weight and posture. Each treatment is individual, drawing from two decades of experience in Shiatsu, Yoga and Meditation.
