Kevin has studied and practiced yoga and meditation for over 30 years, and has been teaching in Gloucestershire since 2000. He trained extensively in the Iyengar system, in which he qualified. His style of teaching is rooted in his Iyengar training, and is additionally informed by other approaches to yoga.
Kevin practices yoga within a context of Mindfulness, rather than Hindu texts and philosophy. Mindfulness Yoga is different from many traditional yoga practices in that there is less of a focus on the exact posture achieved and more focus on body/mind awareness. Contrary to popular belief, yoga is essentially an awareness practice, rather than a series of stretching movements, the aim of which is to still and center the mind, which takes us out of our heads and into our bodies in preparation for the practice of meditation.
With regular practice we learn to listen to and explore our body-mind, which can lead us to develop a more harmonious relationship to ourselves and the surrounding world. A strong, healthy, body and a calm, clear and compassionate mind enable us to live and enjoy life to its full potential.
These yoga classes focus on movements that first warm and loosen the body, to prepare for the practice of dynamic yoga postures, flowing sequences, longer held restorative postures to relax, re-energise and renew vitality, deep relaxation and a short period of mindfulness meditation. Emphasis is given to breath and awareness. They are all mixed ability groups, suitable for men and women of all ages and experience, including beginners.
