Flow Yoga with Gillie Sutherland
My approach to yoga is that it should be accessible to everyone, and I try to allow for all levels of ability and experience in my classes. However, if you have any special conditions, or if you are worried about joining a class with others, I am happy to take you for a private session initially, so I can assess you and give you any modifications you may need, but also to give you the confidence to go into your first class, with a bit more knowledge of what to expect.
In my yoga teaching I draw upon my 20 years of experience in health and fitness, and the body’s ability to heal itself, which I have made my lifelong learning journey. I am a qualified Fitness Instructor, Registered Yoga Teacher (hatha, ashtanga, and aerial), Pilates Teacher, and Accredited Coach and Trainer.
I try to strike the balance between learning and fun, challenge and relaxation, and between the science and the spirituality. I am constantly evolving my own practise and varying what I teach. I come at it from an intuitive level, using everything that I have learned about health and healing over the years to help you build your own practise based on awareness and re-connecting with your body.
Flow Yoga is a uniqie style of yoga I have developed over the years, based on the principles of breath synchronised movement, awareness, mindfulness, postural correction, and natural, primal movement. I may blend in strong core work, with some Alexander Technique, Feldenkrais and even dance.
My mantra is “Smile and Breathe!”, because I want you to enjoy it, and get the very best out of it, for you. I encourage a non-competitive class environment, and often friendships develop through yoga which are both supportive and nourishing, and this makes me smile a lot too!
