Nicky Jaques Yoga
Hello and thank you for visiting my site. I teach an approach to yoga in which breathing is central to the practise. Yoga treats both the mind and the body and by regulating the breath so that it is long, subtle, smooth and even, we can reduce tension and strain during movement, we can learn to listen and be more present in our actions and to bring a sense of steadiness and clarity to the mind.
Weekly Yoga Classes
Weekly classes are held in Hereford on Mondays 6-7.15pm at the Kindle Centre, Hereford, on Tuesday mornings 9.45-11am and Wednesday evenings 6.45-8pm at Llanwarne village Hall, Herefordshire. In a group class you will be guided through a balanced yoga practice, which will involve working with postures, movement, breathing, meditation and relaxation. The themes and ideas we explore in a group class may inspire your home practise and help to support positive lifestyle choices. Classes are ideal if you don't have the time or space to do yoga at home as for at least 75minutes a week you can step back and take some time out for yourself, to focus on the breath, release tension, strengthen the body and bring a sense of steadiness to the mind.
Individual Yoga Lessons
If you can't make it to a yoga class on a regular basis or you would like to get more out of yoga by practising regularly at home ,then you may be interested in having one-to-one lessons. Every lesson you will receive a personalised home practice varying from 15-60 minutes in length depending on what you would like to work on and how much time you have available to you.
Weekend Yoga Retreats
As of September 2019 I will be delivering regular weekend yoga retreats at a newly renovated retreat centre set in beautiful nature reserve on the Painscastle Hills near Hay on Wye, Powys. The first retreat will take place from the 20th-22nd September, please feel free to get in touch to reserve a space, more details coming very soon.
