Hello, my name is Louise Edwards, I would firstly like to wish you a very warm welcome to Be Something Yoga,
There is a great deal of truth in the saying the “yoga will find you when you are ready” and after spending many years as a fitness instructor, teaching a variety of group exercise classes, I was definitely ready to find yoga! Firstly, as my own practice and then last year, completing my 200 hours Yoga Teacher Training with Sally Parkes at Laxmi Yoga. I have experienced first hand, the many benefits that yoga can bring to a busy & stressful lifestyle, regardless of age, ability and gender and would now like to invite you to join me at Be Something Yoga. Yoga really IS for everybody and embraces the reality that no two bodies are the same & everyday is a new day.
I am delighted to now be offering yoga – both group and individual practice – in the Horsham area. The style of yoga that I offer is a balanced blend of Hatha Vinyasa, Yin Yoga and Yoga Nidra – with warm, strengthening yang elements alongside gentle, mobilising yin shapes.
My approach and style is open-hearted, supportive and encouraging – everyone is welcome regardless of ability. Postures can always be adapted for everyone to ensure that ALL participants can feel the benefits of Yoga.
I have a strong passion for Yin Yoga and have completed specialist training courses in Bali and London, and continue to study this wonderfully beneficial style of yoga, therefore, all Be Something Yoga classes will always include elements of yin.
Yin Yoga is a still practice which contrasts perfectly not only with our busy lifestyles, but also with other moving styles of yoga and serves to mobilise and strengthen joints, ligaments and fascia which helps to provide a strong framework for our bodies, however we use them. It is very beneficially for sports, the shapes that are held in stillness not only help to strengthen the joints & ligaments, but also bring about a stillness of mind that helps bring calm & focus.
Yoga Nidra, sometimes referred to as yogic sleep, is an extremely effective method of relaxation, where the body and mind come to a state of rest, whilst remaining awake. It is said that 20 minutes of Yoga Nidra is equivalent to 2 hours sleep. There has been much research recently regarding the effects on the body that the lack of sleep can have, and I am delighted to be able to share this wonderful practice with you.
I would be delighted to answer any questions, please use the form on the Contact page, or if you would like to join a Be Something Yoga class, please visit the Classes page. Classes can be booked and purchased on line, I look forward to connecting with you soon
