Saturday Morning Hatha Yoga Class

I am pleased to be able to offer a Saturday morning class at X10 Fitness in Kingsteignton 9.45-11am weekly (* please note no class Sat 26th Oct *)

This is hatha yoga, which means it includes asana (postures), pranayama (breath work), mudra (energetic seals and gestures) and bandha (internal lifts, similar to what some call ‘core work’, working from the inside!).

As well as building up to flowing sequences, we spend time exploring postures and ways of freeing , mobilising and stabilising the body. In this way, you arrive home in your body, and learn to work with it. The reason we do asana (postures) is to keep prana moving in the body enabling us to live life fully, learn to free up stuck energy, and therein transforming us on many other levels. The ultimate goal of yoga is transformation!

We have some time for seated meditation/ mindfulness , which I guide you through to make it effortless and comfortable.

I am qualified through the British Wheel of Yoga (300 hrs) (www.bwy.org.uk)

I have a degree in Applied Psychology, and a postgrad in Informal and Community Education. I have a good awareness of promoting trauma- sensitive, mental health- aware yoga. Please feel free to contact me in advance to discuss any worries or queries. jess@jaimaayoga.co.uk

I will make every effort to adapt the class for disabilities. The studio is upstairs. Please feel free to contact me in advance to discuss any access requirements. jess@jaimaayoga.co.uk

Please discuss any specific needs with me before class

We work on a particular theme for around 8 weeks, recent themes have been finding balance, backbending and cleansing practices, inversions, and finding stability.

I have a special Autumnal Yoga evening coming up on Fri 25th Oct in Ogwell: email to book jess@jaimaayoga.co.uk

New Year, New everything!

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.

Well Woman Yoga mini retreat Sun 4th Nov

I have two spaces left on this Sunday’s workshop, 10am-1pm at King St Studios, Newton Abbot. This is a lovely, flowing, easeful yoga style suitable for women at all stages of life. You are welcome if you are pregnant/ postsnatal/ perimenopausal/ looking to conceive, and I aim for you to come away feeling inspired and more balanced! We will focus on pelvic floor awareness and gentle abdominal toning; practices that cultivate Shakti (female energy); pair work to get a great stretch and feel supported by a partner; and blissful restorative poses where we stay in one position for around 7 minutes just letting the weight of the body sink into the earth and receiving deep rest.

There will be tea and homemade vegan cake to finish, with a chance to chat.

£25. Book via jessyogawellness@icloud.com or call me 07707297316
