'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.'

      'My yoga journey with Ivana started just 14 months ago at a time in my life where i was feeling anxious, without focus and was deeply unhappy. I soon realised from my once a week class that yoga was beneficial in so many ways, great for both the body and the mind, and that it is virtually impossible to be unhappy whilst practicing or whilst around Ivana, who can only be described as like a ray of sunshine!

After a while I decided to do Ivana's Delve Deeper, which she tailored to my needs and involved weekly one to one lessons, specific flows, pranayama and meditation practices. It was the step I needed to take to fully commit to my practice and the results have been life changing. 

I now attend pretty much every class I can and the through Ivana have become involved with other yogis in Kirtan and Satsang sessions. I am even going to be attending a yoga Ashram later this year. 

This is a truly wonderful journey and I am grateful to Ivana for her support and encouragement. Not only have I gained a wonderful teacher, but also a good friend.'

Ayurvedic Yoga

ayurvedayoganorwich.JPG

Ayu (Life) Veda ( Knowledge) is the combination of balance and harmony of the body, senses, mind and soul.

Ayurveda is the most sacred science of life and sister science to Yoga.  Ayurveda's concern is alleviating both bodily and mental diseases and promoting both physical and psychological well-being. Yet, the ultimate goal of classical Ayurveda, like classical Yoga, is Self-realization - the highest form of Self-healing.

Ayurveda shows us how to attain optimal health as a wholesome foundation and sufficient energy to pursue the yogic quest.

 

Ayurvedic Yoga - more therapeutic approach to practice.

There will be four primary goals:

 1. to balance the doshas (dosha 'what causes things to spoil or get imbalanced')

2. to improve the structural condition of the body

3. to facilitate the movement and development of prana (life force/energy)

4.to calm and energize the mind

These practices and mentoring will be all about adapting your asana (phys. postures), pranayama (breath work), relaxation and meditation to your age, health, lifestyle, and seasonal requirements.

My deepest intention behind this offering of commitment to yourself is that you gather knowledge and tools of knowing how to reclaim your time and through it, reclaim your life full of  vitality, radiance (read here about some of my Morning Routines) and sweet remembrance your sacred Self .

What to expect:

-1  private class (75 minutes) a week, 12 in total

-home practice / homework (depending on the individual)

-3 free entries to any of my weekly or monthly classes (excluding the special events and workshops)

-handouts upon request

  'I undertook a series of one to one private yoga classes with Ivana from January this year, after attending ‘Soulful 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'.
