 Functional yoga for body and mind 

About Functional Yoga

  • Functional yoga is the art of understanding, through yoga postures, breath work and relaxation techniques, that every body and every mind is unique.

  • It is less about the performance and aesthetic of achieving a specific shape in a posture or movement, but more about the mental and physical journey of your yoga practice and what you might experience along the way.


  • Regular practice of functional yoga can benefit your agility, mobility, balance and co-ordination. Over time it will give you the tools to know and understand your mind and body, how they function best, where their limitations lie and how to optimize their potential without taking you into unnecessary places of pain or discomfort.



    About Rae Bird

  • I am a 200hr yoga teacher based in Stamford, Lincolnshire UK. I trained at Bahia Yoga, Nottingham (60hr Yoga Foundation Course) and CAMYoga in Cambridge (200hr teacher training).


  • I am registered with Yoga Alliance Professionals (UK) and Yoga Alliance (USA).


  • I share my love of functional yoga with people of all ages, abilities and interests. I also teach functional yoga for sports, to those with disabilities and for mental health. Personal 121 yoga sessions are available on request. Classes are available online and in person.


  • Yoga is a lifetime of learning. I am inspired by exploring my own daily practice, by reading, listening to podcasts, furthering my studies and regularly attending workshops and yoga classes with my inspirational teachers Chris Taylor, Peter Blackaby and Carol Trevor among others.


  • I learn as much from my students, as you learn from me. My intention is to respect your abilities, limitations and possibilities, to share with you the practice of yoga asanas, breath work and relaxation, and to show you how they can benefit your mental and physical wellbeing for now and long into your future.


'Yoga is about a way of living,

which encourages moderation and

mindful movement and thinking.'
