Welcome to the online space.
Here are practices for you to enjoy in small manageable chunks, where you can tailor your practice to suit you. There are gentle practices and multilevel flow sequences and guided meditations and relaxations. I do hope you enjoy. These are just a taster..... if you are wanting more practices and live classes please look at how to join the Yoga Portal.
It will make your practice more special if you prepare your space at home, making sure you have all that you need before you begin (mat, blanket, turning phone on "do not disturb" and water). I suggest you light a candle and maybe some incense or some essential oils that feel nourishing. Make sure you won't be disturbed and treat it like you would your weekly class.

Today (March 17th 2020) has been fun and a rather large learning experience for me, but I am in the process of recording some videos for you.
The biggest thing is finding a way to share them with you.
At the moment I have decided not to stream live videos via Zoom etc ( this may change of course, if this system is not right for our needs.) BUT My experience with zoom is …… using it for meetings and during our Teacher trainings is that the technical issues can be a little distracting and interference from connection issues can again take us away from the beautiful practice. I wanted to give you a seamless experience that you can drop into and let the stresses of life, particularly technical ones dissolve away!! Hopefully this will be the answer……and you will find some videos below.
As videos are large files, I have split each class into 3 parts. A beginning, middle and end of the class. The end (The relaxation) is the same for both Multilevel and Gentle classes. You will be able to watch them instantly by clicking on the video.
The videos here are for you to watch, I do hope you like them.
I suggest you make your space to practice in comfortable, maybe lighting a candle burning some incense or essential oils, some water, making sure you have everything you need to hand (blankets and eye pillow cushions etc….), AND most importantly switching your phone onto “do not disturb” mode.
