Group and Corporate Sessions
One to one or small group private classes are all about exploring how to adapt yoga to your unique body, mind and energy.
Working together I can address your personal needs and create a plan that is suitable to help you to get the most of your practice. In addition, you will learn pranayama (breath work) and meditation practices that will help you to experience some of the more subtle and powerful benefits of yoga.
Whether your're just starting out and want some help along the way, want to refine your current practice, get more hands on assistance or need guidance, private yoga sessions are a great idea.
Sessions are a minimum 60 minutes long, held at the Happy Om space and cost from £40 (75 minutes £45, 90 minutes £50)
Block of 3 sessions from £108.
If you would like to explore the yoga practices with your friends, workplace or bring your employees to the Happy Om space; I am available for corporate and group bookings.
'Ivana has been a great teacher for our corporate classes. She is very friendly and has made a real effort to get to know everybody and make them feel personally welcome. She offers options for poses so the classes suit a variety of levels. She is always smiling and friendly and you can’t help but feel better when you come away from one of her classes.'

This is a 3 month commitment to Yourself through the practice of yoga. You may ask why 3 months?

'I undertook a series of one to one private yoga classes with Ivana from January this year, after attending ‘Serene Sunday’ classes for over a year. Ivana taught me to feel at ease within in my own body much more than I thought was possible. Her positive energy and quiet spirituality sustained me through the winter months and an extremely hectic work and family schedule. Ivana is completely accepting and non-judgemental. She quickly ascertained that I needed very gentle instruction (physically and mentally) in our weekly work day sessions and was a consistent source of strength, calm and wisdom. She also has a very good sense of humour and fun which means the classes are not overly serious or dull. Alongside the physical yoga (which was amazing and easy to follow, but also just enough of a challenge) the breathing techniques and routines (body brushing, mindful eating, practising gratitude and mindfulness) have lasted way beyond the actual sessions. This represents amazing value for money. I can honestly say that Ivana’s sessions are like a form of 21st century magic! You emerge feeling like you can face the world again. Whilst I haven’t practised yoga during ‘lockdown’ (I’m a bit too clumsy and unbalanced to do it without guidance!) I have managed to keep up the breathing and mindfulness Ivana taught me. This has contributed to my losing 2 stone and finding a sense of equilibrium and peace which Ivana planted the seeds of this winter. If you’re thinking of trying a class but are a bit self-conscious or worried about not being ‘good enough’ or ‘fit enough’ then Ivana is the teacher for you! Her classes are way more than just yoga; they’re life affirming, accepting and incredibly rewarding'.
Introduction to an Asana (Yoga Postures) for Beginners

Over the length of 6 introduction practices you will gain an understanding of the function of asana according to their spinal orientation, movement as well as physiological and energetic affect.
You will adapt the function of the asana to your individual structure by using awareness of your breath, thoughts, behaviour to reflect on the unique effects of the practice.
We will group the postures into six categories:
Each practice will follow up with a simple breathing and meditation practice, which you will be confident enough to use it on your own once you finish with this introductory course to lead your mind into ease and learn to rest in the effortless awareness.

the stillness underneath the mental noise, the love and joy underneath the pain,
is freedom, salvation, enlightenment
