Embodied Yoga
Monday 8pm

Begin your week with Yoga and stretch away those Monday blues with this popular evening class.

This is a mixed levels class that promotes self care and stress relieving techniques - Designed to cultivate awareness and presence, help ease away stress and anxiety and find embodiment whilst challenging you within your limits and helping you find a better connection to your body.  Quite often designed around combating the health issues you can get from sitting all day leading to poor posture, back issues, and general lack of strength and tightness in those muscle.  This slow mindful flow will come with options to pace yourself and move in a way that works best for you. 

We may focus on a specific theme, body part or action where we hone in to awareness of a particular joint articulation or muscle engagement, brimming with mindful cues, choice, agency and well structured intentional sequencing to increase your body awareness and acceptance, leading you to understand, advance and build your yoga self practice.

You can expect to start the class with centering, followed by a well structured intentional sequence and finished with a guided relaxation, this combination of postures and breath work will remove stagnant energy from the body and mind and leave you feeling good for the week ahead.

Offering exploration through a variety of options to discover strength, movement and stillness.

This class can be challenging but can also be adapted for bodies that need a gentler practice the goal is to find presence in our bodies with kindness and compassion. 

Watch live or on-demand. All classes are recorded (host only) and stored in our online library.

Practicing Online
How it works

Practicing online can be a surprisingly profound experience. Not only can you do it in the comfort of your own home – which can often be more comfortable than practicing within a group of strangers – you can also have a much more ‘internalised’ experience in the sense there is less distraction from people around you.

Practicing online still gives a sense of community as you know there are others online at the same time but alleviates the tendency to directly compare and contrast your practice with them as you can’t see them.

Our live online classes are held via Zoom. Bookings are made through the online booking system Momence and there are various ways to book on (see below). Before the class they will send out a link to access the class via Zoom if you would also like to join the whatsapp group I personally send out a brief description of what to expect and any props we may use. I will be teaching from my home and you can access the class from any location that has access to the internet. If you're unable to make the live stream all classes are recorded (host only) and stored on a private online library that can be accessed anytime with the membership or emailed via a link with 14 days access if purchasing a ticket.

Requirements

There are no requirements to take these classes, however please ensure you have sufficient space so you don't injure yourself. A yoga mat isn’t essential but is recommended, we use props such as yoga blocks, straps and bolsters if you do not have these they can be substituted with items from around your home such as books, cushions, blankets, towels or chairs, you will be advised of what is needed and what can be used at the start of the class.

 If the amount is not affordable send me an email​, you don’t need to explain your financial position; we trust that you’ll only ask if you need to and that you will pay what/when you can.

My classes are rooted in mindfulness, attuning to your body and connecting to your breath for grounding.
 

In my classes we use yoga as a means to get to know and understand the body, to shift the focus from performing poses with strict right and wrong alignment, to using them as an opportunity to sense internally and to explore techniques curiously, to invite deep learning with plenty of room for exploration and discovery of strength, movement and stillness and to respond compassionately to challenges and opportunities as they arise,  finding what feels good in your own body to help build the capacity to make our own informed intuitive choices within our practice.
 

Providing you with a step by step path towards a posture and/or philosophical theme, I take special considerations to create a supportive space which includes empowerment based language, integration of choices and skilfully blends movement, breathwork, mindfulness, thematic exploration, mudras, chakras, philosophy and affirmations as I guide you through a journey of connection to your body and senses, shifting you out of thinking and into feeling, to enable you to tune out of our overstimulated world and tune into you to release stress, tension and anxiety, cope with big emotions, honour your mental health and develop a better understanding of how the body works and feels, helping you regain strength, flexibility and self worth, which can give you a whole new appreciation and respect for what you're capable of and what your body can do for you, helping you recognise how strong you are mentally and physically.

Through your yoga practice we can learn to reconnect with our bodies.​

During my own eating disorder recovery I became fascinated with Anatomy, how the body works and the biomechanics of movement this helped me to see my body in a whole new light, how strong I am  and gave me less desire to be angry at my body.

My classes can be anatomical, as I teach flexibility through strength paying particular attention to anatomy, how a particular muscle engagement feels or the rotation of a particular bone, to learn more about the body, how it works, what it's capable of and a connection to awareness.

I am not hear to teach you anatomy academically, I am teaching you a connection to your body through anatomy, how it works, how it feels, this connection to the body can give you a sense of empowerment, an understanding your own body providing ways to adapt your practice and make it your own, through self adjustments and observing sensations you can harbour a true sense of connection to self and bask in the present moment.

I have a huge love of props, the wall, a chair, blocks (or books), blankets, pillows, changing the orientation of the pose, breaking poses down into parts, there can be huge benefit from practising on a chair even from bed, props are implemented within all my classes.

I teach 3 styles of yoga classes, as well as pranayama, meditation & mindfulness

Embodied Yoga / Gentle Flow

A slow mindful flow with the option to pace yourself and move in a way that works best for you. 

These classes are designed to cultivate awareness and presence, help ease away stress and anxiety and find embodiment.

You can expect to start the class with centering, followed by a well structured intentional sequence infusing classical hatha yoga postures with an element of flow, honing in on sensations and awareness and finishing with a guided relaxation, leaving you more grounded, regulated and balanced. 

This class can be challenging but can also be adapted for bodies that need a gentler practice the goal is to find presence in our bodies with kindness and compassion.

You're always encouraged to listen to your body throughout the practice, to move intuitively, to look at every pose as a way to make a choice and find your own unique expression promoting self awareness

Yin Yoga

While “yang” yoga focuses on your muscles, yin yoga targets your deep connective tissues, like your fascia, ligaments, joints, and bones. It’s slower and more meditative, giving you space to turn inward and tune into both your mind and the physical sensations of your body. Because you’re holding poses for a longer period of time than you would in other traditional types of yoga, yin yoga helps you stretch and lengthen those rarely-used tissues while also teaching you how to breathe through discomfort and sit with your thoughts.  The practice of yin yoga is based on ancient Chinese philosophies and Taoist principles which believe there are pathways of Qi (energy) that run through our bodies.  By stretching and deepening into poses we're opening up any blockages and releasing that energy to flow freely.  Here the goal isn't to move through postures freely, postures are held for 3-5 minutes, or even 20 minutes at a time as you try to access the deeper tissues and many of the posutes focus on areas that encompass a joint such as the hips, sacrum and spine.

Restorative Yoga / Yoga Nidra

Few practices are quite as grounding as Restorative Yoga.

Restorative Yoga is the practice of asanas, each held for longer periods and supported with props such as bolsters, blocks and blankets to relax the body and reduce stress.

By allowing time for longer holds and deeper breathing we restore the body to its parasympathetic nervous system function helps elicit the relaxation response allowing the body to rest, heal and restore.

You're guided to relax consciously, focus your awareness on your breath, bodily sensations, emotions and thoughts, when other thoughts slip into you conscious mind you are encouraged to observe them, welcome them, and let them go without getting caught up in it.from awareness of the physical body to more subtle levels of presence, stillness and spaciousness and the deepest state of relaxation.

OTHER COURSES

Below you can find other online courses with instant access to all the material

CHAIR YOGA SERIES

The chair can add a wide range of participation to students who may have been discouraged in the past.

I aim to provide an empowering and positive experience for people who think that yoga is not for them.

This online program can help you feel better in the body you have today.

YOGA AND THE ELEMENTS

Journey through the elements of Earth, Water, Fire & Air and experience the connection Yoga holds to the universe and everything around us. 

Fire, water, earth, and air are the four elements of the Universe.

They make up all that is, everything we see around us, and everything we are.

No one of them is better than the other, they each have their own unique qualities as do we. 

There are many different ways to connect with, and balance the four elements in your body and life, my favourites being spending time with the elements in their natural surroundings and yoga.

CHAKRA YOGA

A complete guide to the 7 chakras and the effects on the physical and energetic body.

 Through our asana and pranayama practice, yoga seeks to stimulate and balance these chakras or energy centers in the body.

"Start where you are, use what you have, do what you can" ~ Arthur Ashe

Yoga should never be used to replace good mental health counselling. Yoga works through the mind body connection and can help move unresolved emotions, stress, worries and trauma that can be stored in the body and can be an incredible addition to counseling, Yoga in conjunction with counselling is what has been found to be effective in treating trauma symptoms.

At this time, I have limited availability for private yoga sessions.

All sessions are held online
Contact me directly by email at sharoncannonyoga@gmail.com to discuss booking a private session.
Everyone's experience with, and reasons for coming to yoga are unique, so should be the approach to treat your body.

One to one yoga classes are a great way to enrich a deeper understanding of yourself, your body, all aspects of yoga and philosophy and cultivating a self practice whilst supporting you with tools to cope with anxiety, stress, trauma, emotional healing and cultivate mental health wellbeing.

Private yoga classes offer a more personalised approach than group classes can offer and are tailored to your individual needs.  Each session is customised to meet you where you are, and what you want to achieve with your yoga.
