with Sophie Shenstone

Yoga re sculpts our mental/physical landscapes, releasing unhelpful patterns of thought along with limiting or damaging habits of posture and movement.

I practice and teach a flowing, breath-led, meditative style of hatha yoga, ….I love to creatively combine core strength and dynamic flow, with inner qualities of listening, non-competetiveness, and embodied enquiry…

Shen massage is holistic, intuitive bodywork, based on shiatsu, with elements of Thai yoga and deep tissue massage. I 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. Each treatment is individual, drawing from two decades of experience in Shiatsu, Yoga and Meditation.

Yoga practice and teaching will NEVER be boring for me - I can always work out how long I've been letting that funky creative body/mind /spirit enquiry flow through me, as it started when daughter Coral was a baby...over 19 years ago...The personal journey goes through cycles within cycles, from skin to soul to skin...sometimes feeling really deep and connected; practice feels luminous.....other times the essence hides in the shadows...But, always, the body and nervous system appreciate, appreciate...It's always about the breath, ALWAYS.....and, for me, about intuitive creativity, returning to trust...... ...

That's beautiful. I am finding my way into a regular yoga practice and I love it. And it definitely moves in cycles, mostly relating to my menstrual cycle and how strong/energised my body feels. Some days I just do some yin yoga, other days much more active and movement based. Thank you for the reminder to keep coming back to the breath 💛

Love this ❤️
