My Approach

Hi, my name is Millie. I have been practicing Yoga for 6 years and over that time I have learnt so much about myself. Yoga taught me the importance of self-investment and how big of an impact taking care of yourself can have on your overall self-value. I wanted to share how that felt with others, especially to help those who struggle to see their importance and validity... so with a vision in mind, I qualified as a Registered Certified Yoga Teacher (RCYT) in February 2021.

 

Comfort with no judgement...

I now teach 1-2-1 sessions at the homes of my students. The "at home" element of the sessions allows for the classes to be focused purely on the intentions of the student as an individual. Being in the comfort of a familiar environment can take away that daunting fear of judgement that often comes with group classes.

The programmes that I build for my students analyse and take apart the obstacles that they may be facing, guidance from an outside perspective can help to re-frame a self-critical mindset. Furthermore, a student's physical abilities and restrictions are not only taken into consideration but worked alongside with where necessary.

Every Yoga student's favourite sentence to hear is "lay on your back and close your eyes". You may have heard of Savasana before, a Sanskrit name for the pose in which you lay and meditate. What makes Apricity Yoga special is the speeches that are given within this meditational segment of the class. Specified for each student and addressing specific focus areas, here you can lay back, relax, and hear exactly what you need to hear.

1-2-1 Yoga Flows, Breathing Coaching, Self Help Speeches, Meditation, Relaxation made to suit you.

Whether you suffer from gym anxiety, feel a bit wobbly as a beginner or just prefer the chilled--out tone of a1-2-1at home session, Apricity Yoga classes are a perfect steppingstone to getting into the flow of your yoga routine and building a lifestyle that works for you.

Yoga Movements, Flows and Postures

The "can you touch your toes?" analogy...

When the word "Yoga" is mentioned, the joke of "I can't even touch my toes" is often thrown around. It is a well-known fact that everybody was born with different proportions and genetics. Those who cannot reach their toes likely have shorter arms and longer legs than those that can!

While it can be achieved in time with practise and patience, reaching your toes is not a measure of flexibility, but often a measure of your bone genetics and build. With this in mind, your 1-2-1 yoga movements will be shaped to fit you and you only. Not making you fit yoga, but making yoga fit you.

Breathing Techniques and Excercises

The term: "Breathing exercises" may seem bizarre, considering you breathe all day, every day without even thinking about it. However, breath work dates back to 200BC in Ancient India where Pranayama began. The Ancient Indian Yogis taught that your breath is your life force (Sanskrit - Pranayama - life force) and should be worshiped. It is beneficial to learn more about your inhales and exhales, become connected to your breath and to combine it with movement to guide yourself to meditation as you focus on within.

Mental Health and Physical Benefits

Do you ever find that your mind bullies your body?

Your body is constantly re-storing itself, like when you fall and scrape your knee for example, it heals your wounds and looks after you. Your body will thank you for looking after it in return with a frequent yoga practise.

 

Do you ever find that your mind bullies your body? Beginning 1-2-1 sessions can teach them to work with one another. Burning calories, weight-loss, being well rested and therefore getting better sleep all link to being a happier, calmer person.
