My philosophy

Healthie Moves gives you yoga to balance the body, breath and the mind. We aim to create greater awareness by giving you the ability to use what feels comfortable and to encourage you to move into any other areas safely and in a self-empowered fashion.

We give you tools and skills to lead a more effective and happier life. People of all ages and conditions benefit from our classes and continue to reap the benefits as their practice deepens.

One aspect of our practice is aimed at discovering that harsh self-judgement can create rigidity and be disempowering. We encourage you to discover and overcome this by engaging in a spirit of inquiry. Our aim is to help you gain subtle insights by using the tools of yoga.

Although it is important to learn the asanas, asana (exercise) is currently commonly thought of as yoga, but really it is only one of the tools used in yoga and yoga therapy. Breathing, meditation and chanting are as effective. The most important tool is that spirit of inquiry. Exploration and acceptance will help you find the means to change…to promote balance and insight. At Healthie Moves we nurture the non-competitive edge.

Most people who come to our classes come to learn, not to do a workout. The classes are geared to regaining health and staying that way. Those who come to class come to an understanding that doing yoga without setting rigid goals will aid growth. Being open to new ideas in developing a practice, and incorporating these into life. will elicit positive changes.
