Shiatsu Stretch/"Chair Yoga" Mondays 10am - 11am  
A new class, included in your monthly "subscription" to my classes.  My classic Shiatsu Stretch class includes Do-in to awaken your body and natural energies, meridian stretches to help activate specific energy channels running throughout your body, along with other straightforward exercises. I also share how to work key pressure points (as used in Shiatsu and Acupressure) and other techniques to keep you mentally, physically and emotionally healthy. This class can be followed easily with the aid of a chair.
 
Yoga for All on Tuesday mornings 10am - 11am
Morning stretches to awaken mind and body, gently bring us to Yoga postures giving specific focus to our day. Breathing and relaxation exercises will be included. Go to my Yoga page for more details.
 
Stretch & Strengthen on Thursday mornings 10am - 11am 
Trish’s combination of core work and other strengthening exercises, along with stretches and joint mobilization, helps you build strength and improve your range of movement, leading to a better sense of wellbeing and vitality. 
This class will help you:
* Improve your body awareness, coordination, balance and flexibility

I’m doing all your online classes through the recordings.  They’re definitely keeping me going, so many thanks. SB, Suffolk

 
Please email me if you’d like to attend the classes and I’ll email your Zoom link and password and give you payment details. Payment by BACS preferred, either before or after first class.

If you're new to Zoom, please access your first class well in time, as you will need to download Zoom (you don’t need to create an account though) and it takes a minute or two to get on. Simply follow the instructions on your screen when you click on the link to join the class. Don't panic, it's easy! If you'd like a Zoom tutorial session in advance, let me know and I can talk you through accessing the classes. Please note that Zoom does not require a great broadbandwidth; you're welcome to try out my classes at no cost to see if they suit you.

Live Exercise Classes definitely have a positive effect for most of us, both for physical and mental wellbeing. When Covid-19 restrictions enable, live classes will resume at the venues listed below. Newcomers will be welcome, providing there is space. Classes remain small, ensuring good distancing at all times. Please contact me for booking and details.

All venues are Covid-19 compliant, with appropriate distancing and Covid-19 hygiene policies in place. This allows both yourselves and myself to have confidence with respect to personal safety whilst being able to exercise.

Once you've booked I will email details about new distancing and cleaning routines.
Please note that you will need to bring your own mat, block (or cushion) and blanket. I have new mats that you can purchase from me (£15) and also blocks (£6) and well as straps (£5) and resistance bands (free). Order ASAP please.
