A quick introduction to Johanna who will be teaching part of the yoga retreat day with me later this month.
My passion for yoga led me to became a Yoga Instructor. I teach students the principles and practical implications of yoga, an ancient body work with a specific philosophy which aims to help people improve their mental and physical wellbeing. Yoga positions, breathing techniques, meditation and chanting are some of the aspects focused in my classes.
I started practising yoga in the 1980’s. I soon became aware of the positive effect that practicing yoga had on my life and wellbeing. I was encouraged to follow the two-year teacher training course with The Traditional Yoga Association. In 2006; I qualified as a yoga teacher, which lead me to want to share my passion and knowledge with others. I have been practicing yoga for over 30 years. Currently I teach a variety of group classes, one-to-one yoga sessions, yoga retreats and participate in Yoga festivals. I am a volunteer teacher at The Reading Hindu Temple giving the local people in the community the opportunity to practice yoga helping people improve their mental and physical wellbeing.
I like the class to cover breath with movement. Therefore, the class will focus on:
- Breathing and body awareness during asanas
- Doing asanas mindfully with peace and insight
- freeing ourselves from patterns of tension and tightness
- Giving the opportunity to relax the body and mind
- Being in the present moment.
I look forward to meeting you all very soon, namaste 🙂
