Shen yoga is a form of hatha yoga; a practice which addresses mental, emotional, physical and spiritual well being.
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.
