Why ‘U Can Yoga’?

Keep up to date with the latest U Can Yoga news and Events by subscribing to my Mailing List here.

My intention is to give you the space to nurture yourself as you breathe, strengthen and stretch your body and mind.

With a focus on alignment I encourage you to tune into your body and move safely, with awareness through your yoga asana (posture) practice as you find your own expression of yoga.

The first thing people almost always say to me when I mention yoga is that they can’t do it because:

“I can’t touch my toes”

But yoga is about so much more than touching your toes or creating pretty shapes with your body. Just a few of the benefits a regular yoga practice can bring aside from improving flexibility include: injury prevention and recovery, relief from stress, anxiety and depression, increased focus, weight stabilization, ease from back pain, arthritis, insomnia and so much more. It’s no surprise that yoga’s stood the test of time over the past few thousand years!

Even in a room of people taking part in the same class, everyone’s individual experience of yoga is unique. If you want to give it a try and experience some of the benefits for yourself, I believe u can find your yoga.

And, with regular practice, maybe you’ll be able to touch your toes too.

  • Why Reclined Pigeon Rocks
    Reclined Pigeon pose – also known as Eye of the Needle – is a fantastic post-run and cycling stretch and also a great Pigeon variation that is kinder on the knees than the more traditional version of Pigeon pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana). As well as particularly targeting the hips, glutes and lower back this is […] Read more
