Sahasta encompasses the principle aims of what I aim to offer both on the yoga mat and massage couch.

I can provide vinyasa flow yoga classes, one to one tuition, massage appointments or bespoke one to one yoga tuition with post class massage to truly maximise the benefits of both, in the Bury St Edmunds area of Suffolk.

All require booking in advance, please contact me for further details.

Vinyasa Flow Yoga
Having been under the life changing tutelage of Claire Missingham’s teacher training (RYT200) and the hugely inspirational Alessandra Pecorella (RYT500), my classes incorporate a series of hands on assists where necessary, that can help the student’s overall postural alignment, their understanding of the aim of the asanas and to deepen the practise, improve gains in flexibility and enhance the release of tension.

This is a dynamic form of yoga where the first part of the class is all about the flow, focussing on strengthening and stabilising (especially the core, through awareness of bandha), energising, heating and mobilising the whole body to gain the maximum benefits from the second part of the class. Here, the focus shifts to deeper poses held for longer duration to increase flexibility, to release tension and to work to correct strength and flexibility imbalances due to excessive training, postural issues, past or present injuries and stress/life style factors.

Sports & Remedial Massage
I am a qualified Sports and Remedial Massage Therapist (LSSM DIP) and have studied specific myofascial release techniques (Alex Fugallo:LSSM – ISRM) and these techniques are also blended into the yoga assists within my classes.

My massage work is a method of manipulation of muscles and connective tissue through a variety of techniques (eg cross fibre deep friction massage), to assist with injury prevention and rehabilitation, increasing training volume, assisting with the correction of postural imbalances, stress relief, relaxation and enhancing general well being.Learn More…


Can I help you?

I am a hugely enthusiastic advocate of the benefits of yoga and massage on all levels – hence why it is an integral part of my life.

For anyone who trains regularly and feels they have persistent injury problems or their training volume ceiling is closing down on them – yoga and massage may well be the solution for YOU.

Those from a more sedentary background may find yoga in particular connects with them in a way that “regular” sport never has.

Whatever your reason for interest – to improve flexibility, to strengthen, for injury rehabilitation, to boost your training volume, to prevent injury, for stress management, coping with difficult circumstances or a challenging life transition, for general well being or for any spiritual or holistic motivation, you will get something extremely positive from regular yoga practise and/or thorough massage work.

Plus, it’s worth adding that it is also very enjoyable way to spend 90 minutes, feeling stronger and yet more spacious, feeling energised yet more calm and centred…..
