WHAT IS RAE BIRD YOGA?

  • Rae Bird Yoga is 'kind' yoga.

  • 'Kind' yoga embraces the reality that every body and every mind is unique.

 

  • 'Kind' yoga is a yoga practice for the 21st century. It is a response to the fast-paced and often stress-filled lives that we lead.

 

  • 'Kind' yoga aims to give you tools to:

know and understand your body and mind and how they function best

to notice and recognise habits - mental and physical - that may or may not serve you positively

to optimise your potential without taking yourself into unnecessary places of pain, discomfort or frustration

  • Through a fusion of yoga styles - from functional to flow - yoga postures and gentle movement benefit agility, mobility, balance and co-ordination. 

 

  • Breath work and relaxation techniques, including restorative yoga and yoga nidra, aim to enhance your practice, and perhaps your ability to manage your life in an everyday context.

 

  • 'Kind' yoga is not about performance or the aesthetic of achieving a specific shape in a posture or movement.

 

  • 'Kind' yoga is about your physical, mental and emotional journey towards greater kindness to yourself, self-awareness and perhaps coming to a place of inner peace for now and long into your future.

  • There is never an expectation that you are 'fit' or 'flexible'. There are no expectations at all.

  • My promise to you is that I will always treat you with kindness and will always respect who you are, your abilities and your infinite possibilities.

 

   ABOUT ME

  • I am a 200RYT yoga teacher based near Stamford, Lincolnshire UK. I trained at Bahia Yoga, Nottingham (60hr Yoga Foundation Course; www.bahiayoga.com) and CAMYoga in Cambridge (200hr Teacher Training; www.camyoga.co.uk).

 

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

  • I love to share my yoga with people from all walks of life, all ages, abilities and interests. 

 

  • Yoga is a lifetime of learning and I learn as much from you, as you learn from me. I am inspired by exploring my own daily practice, by reading yoga texts, listening to podcasts, furthering my studies, and regularly attending workshops and yoga classes with my inspirational teachers and studios including Chris Taylor Yoga (www.christayloryoga.com), Peter Blackaby (www.intelligentyoga.co.uk), Carol Trevor (www.yogacarol.co.uk) and Nourish Yoga Training (www.nourishyogatraining.com).
