Shiva Yoga is a form of Hatha Yoga, the postures (asanas), which are inspired by Lord Shiva's Cosmic Dance are a combination of dynamic and gentle stretches, balancing and relaxation postures and breathing techniques.

I am planning a 10 week beginners yoga course time, location and date to be announced but it is likely to start around April and will be located somewhere in Liverpool City Centre.
The course will be suitable for beginners with little, or no yoga experience at all. The ten weeks will offer an overview of yoga and each week we will explore one posture, it's variations, warm up and cool down postures. We will practice pranayama (breathing), meditation, relaxation, mindfulness and yoga philosophy. After the ten week course students will have developed an awareness of their body and how to make modifications to their own posture in order to practice yoga safely. The course will help develop strength, balance, flexibility and mobility and will give students the confidence to choose yoga classes from the vast array available.
I hold a 200 hr teacher training with International Shiva Yoga Centre, additionally I'm currently training for a 500 hr Teacher Training Diploma with the British Wheel of Yoga and also a 500 hr Yoga Therapy Diploma with Dru Yoga.
