*Last Wednesday of every month there is long standing event in the main hall at the Community Centre, entry is through the back of the building to a smaller room and no parking is permitted in the front car park.

Yoga Hub is situated within the Maidenhead Community Centre ,
42 York Road, SL6 1SH
If you are not familiar with York Road, it is located very near Maidenhead Town Hall and the Library ( St Ives Road) that is a one way road leading down to York Road. York Centre neighbours with Desborough Bowling Club and Maidenhead Football grounds.See local map below.

Parking  there are a few spaces in the front (except for last Wed. of the month) , at the rear of the building too. However you can park for free with an Advantage card in the council carpark. Another free parking is at Homebase , just walk down the Green Way towards town alongside the canal and you will see the Community Centre on your left as you get to the end; 12 minute walk.

I do have plenty of mats but it is lovely to have your own mat eventually. But if you don’t have one, try out a few different ones to see what works best for you. Bring some water to class and just comfortable stretchy clothes.

My Yoga Style

Much of my yoga focuses on relieving back, shoulder and neck  tension through realigning posture; be it in standing, sitting or lying down positions. Students are gently encouraged to move arms, legs, pelvis and spine in all possible directions; wiggling, stretching, toning and stimulating the entire body, no area escapes being touched or patiently transformed. Yoga over time improves strength and flexibility, enhances abdominal and pelvic stability, and greatly reduces the back aches and joint pains.

Students often share they feel deeply relaxed and rejuvenated after class. My classes will enable you to learn and master the basic yoga positions and breathing techniques that improve posture, balance & coordination.

No previous yoga experience required, just an inquisitive mind and a willing body. I will give you plenty of ideas for practice at home and in the office, and the beauty of coming to class is you get to completely wind down after a full day and indulge yourself with yourself with no distractions; no phones, no chores, no doingness;  just you, yourself and your breath.

My style of yoga teaching is  greatly influenced by the work of  Vanda Scarvelli,although my orginal teaching trainings were in Hatha and Dru yoga. I continue learning of her Vanda’s work through the monthly teachings with  Gary Carter of Natural Bodies. 

My videos above are now 10 years old and were filmed on the last days of my long stay ( 4 years ) on the island of Aruba. My style has changed but the essence of my teachings has not. Please do feel free to come along and experience one of my classes. 

 

Undoing tension is an intense process; letting go of old patterns of holding and effort requires a tremendously strong release. “Relaxation” in Vanda’s vocabulary does not mean collapsing; undoing is not passive but alert and attentive. There is a great sense of resolve in the body’s invitation to gravity, and there is always more to let go. As tension is released and joints become free, new, deep muscles awaken; the feet, especially the heels, come alive and make strong contact with the earth in an almost prehensile way. Increasingly, movement takes place on the spine rather than in the large superficial muscles that are accustomed to working (such as the quadriceps). And even as so many things are changing on a fine motor level in the body, attention must always focus on the wholeness of the movement.  Ned Wishner
