Caroline Brindle (Chatterton)
The style of Yoga I teach is a non-competitive form of Hatha Yoga – the Yoga of movement. The practise can facilitate releases on all levels, creating a sense of space and freedom within. This can lead to a less stressed body/mind, good health and improved posture.
The Yoga practise is primarily interested in freeing the breath and spine together with a sense of grounding or yielding to the earth. Focussing on the breath together with an attentive, inquisitive mind, allows you to be kind to yourself and listen to your body’s needs, allowing you to become your own teacher.
My classes are suitable for all levels of experience from beginner to the more experienced student.
I started practising Iyengar Yoga in 1997 when I lived in South Africa. The reason I wanted to try Yoga was to ‘stretch’ as a counter balance to training in the gym, and ‘destress’ from my work life as a computer programmer. I’ve been teaching Yoga since 2002 and qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga. I moved to Windsor in 1998 and was fortunate enough to attend workshops with Peter Blackaby and Gary Carter. I went on to do another Teacher Training with Gary Carter at his studio Natural Bodies. Over the years I have worked with a numerous teachers inspired by the teachings of Vanda Scaravelli; I continue my personal practise along these lines.
