I will now be teaching a hatha yoga class at X10 Fitness two nights a week.
Hatha Yoga allows you to arrive in your body, get out of your head, and to leave the class feeling great. Because this is a holistic practice, not just ‘performing’ poses but exploring the body through a felt sense , working with the breath through pranayama, and with mudra and bandha (gestures and seals in the body which transform energy), with a background of yoga philosophy; this is a practice that reaches beyond the class and into your everyday life.
I am trained with the British Wheel of Yoga (300 hour Level 4 yoga teacher training) and through Birthlight (Well Woman Yoga, postnatal yoga). I have been practicing yoga for twenty years, teaching for 8 years. I am also a massage therapist and I bring this understanding of the body into my teaching approach, using physical assists to help you feel into and relax into the poses, as and where this is welcomed.
Beginners are welcome -it is not specifically a beginners class but if you are happy to go at your own pace I can suggest adaptions where needed. Please contact me beforehand for a chat if this feels helpful. firstname.lastname@example.org
Wednesdays need to be booked through X10 fitness, Fridays you can just turn up. More info HERE

Happy New Year
Wishing you a very Happy New Year and a great 2019!
I have been busy over the festive break, changing my name from “Jess Yoga and Wellness” to “Jai Mā Yoga”, finding new venues and times for all classes, and even having a bit of family and chill time!!
The new name is to mark my finishing my British Wheel of Yoga 300 hour yoga teaching certificate. Jai Mā is Sanskrit for , roughly translated, “in praise of the Universal Mother!”. (There is never just one interpretation of Sanskrit.) This actually refers to Mothers in a broad sense , so the archetype of the Divine Mother , Mother Earth, and actual Mothers and Mothers – to- be, who I particularly love to work with!
So, I am very pleased to publish my new timetable and newly updated website, and share the new venues for my classes, X10 fitness in Kingsteignton and Pretzel Studio in Bovey Tracey! Click on the meus for more info.
