Become confident & skilful at doing yoga


When it's done regularly, yoga has the potential to transform your body and your mind. I strongly believe that if everyone on the planet did yoga the world would be a happier, healthier and more connected place. It's magic.

You probably already know that yoga would be good for you. But if you're a beginner or if you've had a break from yoga, you're probably feeling overwhelmed about where to start (or restart), or apprehensive because you're worried about not being flexible, skinny or strong enough. Or perhaps you don't have any fancy leggings.

I get it. Starting anything new is nerve-racking. I've been there. My own yoga practice, together with my experience of teaching hundreds of normal people with stiff and perfectly imperfect bodies, means that when you learn with me you'll be in a safe and supported space. The pace of class is slow and steady. You'll never be asked to make pretzel shapes with your body. And no fancy yoga leggings are required.

One of the many benefits of doing yoga online is that you're in the privacy of your own home. That means no comparisonitis and no pressure to perform. Camera on, or camera off, it's up to you.

My job is to help you to feel confident and skilful in doing yoga so that you can transform your wellbeing and thrive in your everyday life. Let me show you how.

6 things you'll get from this

comprehensive beginners' course:

By the end of this course, you will:

  1. Have knowledge of the key poses and techniques of yoga
  2. Have practised foundational meditation and breathing techniques
  3. Have a foundational knowledge of yogic philosophy
  4. Have the confidence to continue to practise at home or in a group class
  5. Have built a regular and sustainable home practice habit which perfectly sets you up for continuation after the course
  6. Belong to a community of fellow classmates who will support and encourage you.


This course facilitates sustainable habit building

Yoga works best when you do it regularly and effective learning comes with repetition and consistent practice. This course is designed to develop your skill, knowledge and technique through encouraging you to practise little and often, multiple times per week. Through combining live classes and on-demand guided practice, you'll establish the habit of doing yoga at home as part of your everyday life. This will help you to be consistent with your yoga practice after the course has ended. You simply won't get this level of depth or impact from a once-a-week in-person course.


Worried about not being in the same room as me?

Don't be. I've taught hundreds of online classes and trust me, online yoga works. If your camera is on and positioned so that I can see you, I promise you that it's no different from being in the same room as me. My instructions are precise (see Julie's testimonial). I'll verbally correct you, just as I would if we were in the same room. You can ask me questions at the end, just as you would if we were in the same room. Plus, online yoga has so many benefits over in-person yoga. You can practise more frequently (little and often) which means you'll learn more quickly and your body will adapt more quickly. And it's more private, removing feelings of intimidation or comparison between your ability and that of your fellow classmates.


"Crystal clear instructions"


"Felicity's teaching is ideal for online practice because of her clarity. Both her demonstrations and her instructions are crystal clear, and therefore you don't feel that you need to be in the same room as the teacher".


Julie

"Focus on technique"


"I like the fact that Felicity helps you to focus on technique so that you get the most of the yoga session, and in particular helps you to accommodate any injuries or weaknesses you might have, for example in your knees or your back".


Pete

"Best yoga teacher ever"


"I think what you get with Felicity is, not only is she a beautiful person, but you also get the variation of poses so depending on your body or how you are feeling that day, there is always an option for you to be able to complete a class from start to finish. I can honestly say, best yoga teacher ever".

Hey, I'm Felicity. I've taught hundreds of beginners over the past seven years, both online and in person. You're in safe hands.
