About the yoga
Bess’s yoga is a true form of moving meditation : heart opening and creative flow sequences in conjunction with pranayama (control of breath) are practiced with mantra, mudra, bandha sound healing. Bess’s classes are suitable for all as her approach to yoga is to help you become the full ‘you’. The class will end with a deeply restful and soothing meditation and sivasana that will allow you to take stock, leaving the class lighter and full of vitality (and ready for brunch)!
After a bright and restful day walking in the abundant countryside or treating yourself to a holistic treatment, our restorative yoga sessions are the perfect opportunity to deeply relax and unwind. Bess will be teaching a slower class in the evenings, predominantly yin based, allowing you to find stillness and space, finishing off with an extended yoga nidra and savasana.
