Shiatsu Stretch for Health, Mondays 9.30am - 10.30am  
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 to awaken and invigorate or, if needs be, to calm and centre. 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.
"Surprisingly energising". 
 
Yoga for All on Tuesdays 9.30am - 10.30am
Morning stretches to awaken mind and body, gently enable us to focus into Yoga postures. Breathing and relaxation exercises will be included. This class will help you find your focus and meaning for the rest of the day. Go to my Yoga page for more details.
 
Stretch & Strengthen on Thursday mornings 9.30am - 10.30am
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 well-being and vitality. 
This class will help you:
* Improve your body awareness, coordination, balance and flexibility
* Improve your general sense of well-being
* Learn to breathe more effectively
 
What people are saying about my online classes:

I’m enjoying the online classes; they help to provide a friendly structure to my week. Very welcome. JK, Halesworth 

Your online classes have energised and kept me motivated. LD, Manningtree

The strengthening class online is definitely helping my back- I’m feeling less pain and am increasing my flexibility generally, as well as getting into the discipline of showing up and committing to the principles of Yoga. HK, Scotland

Very therapeutic. LM, Suffolk

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 well-being. At the moment (March 2021), providing Covid-19 restrictions are lifted as per the roadmap, live classes will resume at the venues listed below from the beginning of June. Newcomers will be welcome, providing there is space. Classes are kept 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 (£1). Order ASAP please.
Payment by BACS preferred, either before or after first class.
