Move, breathe, live freely
I believe that if you can breathe, you can do yoga.
I help you to calm your nervous system, learn how to breathe properly, break free of restrictive physical patterns and move with ease. You'll foster a sense of kindness and compassion towards yourself and others. You’ll notice more about your body than you ever have and will realise just how intricately connected the body and mind is.
With awareness comes the ability to choose another way, to move, breathe and even think in a more positive and healthy way for yourself.
"Like the Rosetta stone, for those who know how to read it, the body is a living record of life given, life taken, life hoped for, life healed."
Clarissa Pinkola Estes
I came to yoga in my early twenties, at a time when I was highly anxious and experiencing regular panic attacks, with no idea why they were happening. I tried a yoga class, and it was the first time I was able to come down from the constant anxious thoughts in my head. Finally, I managed to focus on something else apart from my thoughts. I arrived in the present. I could breathe again.
Since then, I have been on a path of exploration. I have been able to unravel the layers of myself to see what’s there, why I react to things in different ways, and how I can bring in a choice to respond more freely. I now see how mind and body are one in the same, how my emotions play out in the body and how it responds intuitively and intelligently to experiences. Now I offer my learnings to other women through unique workshops and tailored sessions.
"Doing yoga with May feels so much more than simply ‘doing’.
It feels like being who I want to be…mindful, peaceful and kind to myself.
Joining May’s class has been my best decision this year and is really helping me to look after all of me."
"I came out of May's Soothing Sunday session in a dream, I have not been that relaxed in so long. I've had back pain between my shoulder blades for months and releasing all my tension made it so much better.
May has such a soothing presence and knows exactly how to get you to let go of your physical and mental stress.
This was the loveliest way to end the week and I can't recommend it highly enough!"
