Polly will be joining Charlie Anderson to invite you to explore a range of yoga styles suitable for beginners as well as seasoned yogis. Vinyasa flow, Hatha, restorative and yin yoga will all be part of the mix. The yoga sessions will take place within a stunning traditional yurt with log burner, set within the beautiful grounds.
Charlie has been practicing yoga for around 20 years and teaching for 4. Yoga is a non-negotiable part of her life, it has, and continues to be, a truly transformative practice.
She trained with the British Wheel of Yoga and was lucky to have a teacher who very much encouraged her to find her own path and teach in a way that feels true to her.
She adores all aspects of yoga: philosophy, mantra, asana, pranayama, meditation...there is so much to explore both intellectually and experientially. Most of her classes are vinyasa flow style, they can be strong but don't tend to be to fast - she is a firm believer in flow that is rooted in breath and mindful safe connection with the body. She also loves to teach more gentle hatha classes, lead mantra chants, yin and philosophy workshops.
