Yoga Classes and Yoga Workshops in Stafford
Embodied Yoga brings the ancient teachings of Satyananda yoga to life for happiness and fulfilment. It brings freedom from anxiety, stress, depression, worry and other mental and emotional problems.
It is a different type of yoga… Most yoga in the West has developed from more physically-based forms of yoga and include Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga, Vinyasa Flow, and their influences can also be seen in Anusara yoga. These have largely come out of Kirshnamacharya during the last century. Satyananda yoga is very different in that it deals more with one’s whole being and teaches in a slow and very systematic way.

About Satyananda Yoga
Most yoga in the West has developed from more physically-based forms of yoga and include Ashtanga and Iyengar yoga, Vinyasa Flow, and their influences can also be seen in Anusara yoga. These have largely come out of Kirshnamacharya during the last century. Satyananda yoga is very different in that it deals more with one’s whole being and teaches in a slow and very systematic way. It is ideal for beginners, as it starts very gently, but utilizes awareness of the breath from the start, and works with many layers of the self. People feel the benefits of relaxation immediately, and the physical benefits develop as the postures gradually get stronger as you adjust to the practice.
It is also an excellent form of yoga for those more experienced yoga practitioners who realise there is much more to yoga than the physical practice. It is an ideal way to embark more deeply on the inner journey to self, connect with one’s deeper wisdom, and prepare the mind for meditation and realising our higher potential.
Through a combination of yoga and yoga nidra (deep mind-body relaxation) you will learn how to release all physical, mental and emotional tension to improve your health and wellbeing.
- Develop a deeper sense of calm and cope with life’s adversities better
- Improve your strength and flexibility
- Overcome stress and anxiety
- Sleep better and have more energy
- Learn how to stop letting your emotions get the better of you
