A message from Northampton-based yoga teacher Samantha Nixon
Here you will find details on the classes I teach. Regardless of whether you are new to yoga or an experienced practitioner, I would be absolutely delighted to see you :o)
I firmly believe practising yoga helps you to become the very best version of who you really are. It rebalances your mind and body back into a blissful state of equilibrium. In the fast paced world we live in, it's impossible to not get caught up in working and planning. Yoga gives you the time to restore, to replenish and to rebalance your energy levels. It's a time that you dedicate to yourself. A gift from you, to you.
Seeing as you are here, why not enjoy this simple breathing exercise that can be practiced at anytime and wherever you are:
Think of the word "relax". It has two syllables, "re" and "lax". Now try this exercise. As you breathe in, think "re" to yourself, and as you breathe out, think "lax". Don't let your mind wander away from repeating the word "relax"' in tune with your breathing. When you breathe out, try to let go of any tensions in your body. Focus on the muscles which you know become tense when you're stressed. Remember, every time you breathe out: "laaaax".
