" I am over 60 and I contacted James in desperation after receiving his flyer as aches and pains in my joints and muscles were really getting me down. He is a brilliant teacher and after a few weeks my flexibility is much improved and I can feel the difference both mentally and physically. James is passionate about Yoga and each private session is tailored to my precise needs on the day. "
Stuart, Private Yoga client
The first few sessions of a Yoga class can always be a little disorientating as there is a lot of new language, new body movements, and can be a little daunting heading into a class of experienced Yogis where everyone seems to know what they doing (even though they are usually thinking the same!). Some personal time with the instructor can be great for getting the correct alignment to perform the poses correctly and safely, but to also understand what the benefit is to each position and know why we do them.
Private Yoga sessions are perfect for those just starting Yoga, and can be carried out at your own home, work space, or in a local area that you find calming and familiar. These can either be done solo, or in a group with your friends and family. Each session is specifically tailored to your needs on the day and can involve working on specific body issues and alignment, and deep stretching if you experience sciatica or any leg and lower back pain.
Sessions can also be for those that have been practicing for a while and need a fine tune up on their alignment, or if they want to work on a particular skill or posture. I can also help deepen your practicing by focusing on breath work during your sequencing, as well as working on more of the advanced balance / inversion postures.
Please get in touch to discuss what options would be best for you as you may only require a few sessions to get an understanding to join classes, or you may wish to have an ongoing commitment if you want to really deepen your practice with a specifically tailored programme for you.
I look forward to helping you on your journey.
" Today I had my first Reiki session with James and now I can not recommend him highly enough! James made me feel very calm, safe and relaxed during the entire process. He spent time before our session to speak to me about any areas of concern and how I am currently feeling. I went into our session with a ton of stress and anxiety from different areas of my life and came out of it feeling at peace and cleansed of negativity. James is extremely good at what he does and I recommend him highly for any one who is looking to bring more balance to themselves. Thanks James for a fantastic session and for helping me feel at ease in my life. "
Elyse, Reiki client
Reiki is a hands-on healing technique that channels energy into the client to activate the natural healing processes of the body, and to encourage to restore physical health and emotional well-being. Sessions are recommended for those experiencing fatigue, emotional and physical stress, anxiety and minor illnesses.
In a standard treatment, clients are u sally laying on a massage table and made comfortable with the use of pillows and throws whilst fully clothed (and remains that way). Hands are places on or near the body depending on clients preferences in a series of hand positions and held for for a few minutes depending on how much Reiki is needed in each position.
Reiki treatments vary from person to person, but clients can expect to feel warm sensations across the body and deep relaxation throughout the whole of the session. After the treatment, a lightness of the mind and body is felt as Reiki helps to clear negativity, fears and any emotional imbalances.
I am a certified Reiki Practitioner and will be completeing my Reiki Masters this year.
"Just had a really good massage from James. He applied just the right amount of pressure and now I have lost all the stress and tension that's been building up in my body"
Angela, Massage Client
I am ITEC Level 3 certified in providing full body Swedish Holistic Massage. This is a wonderful massage that has the benefits of relaxing the body whilst also removing rension and tightness that has built up in the muscles, and can also help at removing knots.
This style of massage is great for stimulating the lymphatic system within the body that can help increase blood flow and circulation, increase the activity of the immune system and help to aid in sleep and relaxation.
Sessions are usually one hour and covers the whole of the body, but it can be tailored to your needs if you have specific areas that you want focussed on or if you are not comforatble being massaged in certain places such as the feet or abdomen.
