Welcome to Liz Brown Yoga, offering group
yoga classes in Chesham near Amersham, in Monks Risborough
and in Halton & Wendover near Aylesbury, plus private sessions
My general hatha yoga classes
are inspired by the work of Vanda Scaravelli, which seek to lose physical & mental tension working with the natural
patterns of movement of the body (particularly the spine) and its relationship with gravity and the breath. I have a particular interest in the management of energy, pain, sleep & stress using yoga.
yoga classes for pregnancy, birth & the postnatal period are gentle and safe for all women, whether new
to yoga or with years of practice. I have a particular interest in helping to minimise anxiety and back/pelvic pain in pregnancy
and support all birth choices - all are welcome.
My private yoga classes are tailored
entirely to your needs and at a time/frequency to suit you. This can be useful when your schedule doesn't allow for regular
class attendance, to support a home practice, or to focus on and deepen a particular area of your practice.
yoga adapts yoga practices to support people with health problems. As yoga cultivates body/mind integration
and can improve flexibility, strength, breathing, posture, balance, co ordination, concentration and relaxation and help to
manage pain and fatigue. Yoga may therefore support a whole variety of conditions.
My mother initially sparked
my interest in yoga as a child and I started practicing regularly in 1990.
