Izzy teaches a variety of styles of yoga currently both through Zoom classes, in studio and on a 1:1 or small group basis. More details on these below.
Working in small groups makes for a very effective and bespoke class and suits those who might not be able to get to a studio during the day or who require a more tailored approach to address any injuries or even just to focus on the basics or deepen personal practice. These small groups can include friends, partners or family members. Please use the contact form below to request booking or for more information. Izzy has comprehensive insurance to practice with all age groups and holds a full DBS certificate.
alignment-focused vinyasa flow
A challenging yet fun flowing class to help build not only physical strength and flexibility but to also offer space for turning inward, connecting with the breath and allowing for space and calm in the mind.
Trapeze yoga is a form of suspended yoga and is incredibly therapeutic, particularly for those with back issues. With careful guidance students enjoy passive inversions and instant back traction. This in effect creates space in the spine decompressing the intervertebral discs and giving instant pain relief to many students. In addition, the flying yoga sequence builds strength in the posterior chain to protect the back and help prevent future injuries. It is also wonderful for helping build focus on alignment, particularly for mat-based classes, where students sometimes feel pressure in their joints. In the trapeze, the joints are supported so students can really focus on building strength, balance and flexibility.
Izzy is teaching Zoom trapeze through request , 1:1's and small groups and classes, twice per week in Burchetts Green, Maidenhead and Zen House in Beaconsfield. See timeable to book or send an enquiry.
Gravity yoga is a targeted functional mobility practice which focuses on flexibility by changing the fascia and lengthening muscle tissue - this is particularly beneficial for those who train in high-impact sports and where the focus is on muscle shortening and bulking. These classes are slow and very breath-focused. Although they are highly effective in gaining flexibility, they are also wonderful for supporting hormone health as long holds stimulate certain endocrine centres.
Gravity yoga classes are taught either as a complete class or in combination with a regular class.
These classes focus on decompression and opening poses in the shoulders and hips. With so many people now working from home, many of us have had to really compromise our posture, and having to spend many hours seated, often in chairs that are not intended to support our spine as proper desk chairs at work might.
Izzy teaches through Zoom or in house to small groups where spacing permits.
yoga for schools
Many schools are including yoga for children in their curriculum and activity programs. Yoga is proving to be of great benefit to children's mental health. Anxiety and low self-esteem amongst children is alarmingly high. Yoga helps build confidence and calm to young people, inviting them to focus on their breathing as well as their postures which all help develop the importance of self-care from an early age.
Izzy also offers yoga to staff. Teachers give the best of themselves all the time and often don't have the time to focus on their own wellbeing. Staff yoga is wonderful for teacher's wellness, their physical strength and mobility as well as encouraging team-togetherness.
