Yoga

for ultimate health & well-being in your home

Yoga is a powerful yet gentle system originating from India more than 5000 years ago. It is the union of mind, body and breath. Regular practice of postures and breathing aims to calm the mind, balance emotions and bring strength, stamina and flexibility to the body.

Bodyflow offers dynamic yoga (Astanga), relaxing yoga (Hatha) and Pregnancy yoga. Bodyflow teachers can teach up to a maximum of 4 clients at any one time, depending on space in your home.

Yoga can be very powerful to aid the repairs of muscle injuries.

Astanga yoga

Astanga yoga is a dynamic and energetic practice suitable for those seeking a physically challenging form of yoga. It is an ancient system, which practised in its correct sequential order.

Through this practice of postures (asanas), breathing (pranayama) and gazing points (driste), we gain control of the senses and a deep awareness of ourselves. The breath is the heart of this discipline, and links asana to asana in a precise order, by synchronising movement with breathing, an intense internal heat is produced, this heat purifies muscles and organs, expelling unwanted toxins as well as releasing beneficial hormones and minerals. With many postures involving forward bends designed to expel stagnant energy and align the body, the practitioner develops increased energy levels, flexibility and bodily strength.

By maintaining this discipline with regularity and devotion, one acquires steadiness of body and mind.

Hatha yoga

Yoga is suitable for absolutely everybody regardless of age or physical condition, with classes tailor-made to suit your requirements. Classes are taught in the Hatha tradition, focussing on precise alignment of the body with both dynamic flow and held postures.

Be amazed and inspired to discover how your breathing can enrich and invigorate every cell of your body, making you truly smile from within.

Pregnancy yoga

Are you pregnant and wanting to stretch those stiff areas and maintain flexibility? Yoga could be what you are looking for. Advocates claim it boosts mind and body, helping to keep your pregnancy hassle-free.

Pregnancy yoga helps balance the body through the many changes that occur during the different tri-mesters. It concentrates on breathing, creating space for the baby and easing aches and pains. Gentle asana practice will help build stamina and improve strength and connection to your baby.

"Seeing Gemma weekly pre and during my pregnancy has made all the difference in my pregnancy, health and wellbeing. Her magic hands helped with all my symptoms, to feel energised, restored and in balance. She has a wealth of knowledge and a caring approach to help with absolutely anything.

"I used Gemma's reflexology sessions in the lead up to giving birth and not only were my treatments incredibly relaxing, but they WORK! I have no doubt that because of them my birth was much quicker and easier and then afterwards she helped my body recover. I cannot recommend them enough!"

Gemma has an amazing gift which helps me relax and sleep better after even the most hectic of days and weeks through her unique reflexology skill. I have tried many different practitioners over the years, but Gemma and Bodyflow really stand out with what they can do.

@BodyflowLimited thank you for such an amazing reflexology treatment I feel relaxed and balanced X
Madeleine Shaw

I am so grateful I stumbled across this post and Gemma's work. I started seeing Gemma in December with mild PCOS and nearly 3 years of trying for a baby with a history of ectopic pregnancy. I was always a bit skeptical about reflexology having tried it with a non-fertility expert practitioner a few years ago. However, I am nervously excited to say I am sitting here 7 weeks pregnant and a scan showing the baby in my womb with a heartbeat. I never thought I would ever make it this far and I know it is super early days still and anything can happen but I am feeling so much more positive about the future. I will continue to see Gemma and would recommend anyone who is in my position to look at the benefits of reflexology when you're told your only option is IVF.

Gemma saw me throughout my whole pregnancy and post my birth, helping me with nausea, stress aches and pains whilst pregnant and getting the drugs out of my system and adjusting me after the birth. She is heaven and worked wonders rebalancing me. Her treatments always left me feeling so happy and zen. She's a reason to get pregnant again!

"I heard about Gemma through Madeleine Shaw's blogpost about PCOS and infertility. My own struggles to get pregnant started nearly three years earlier with an ectopic pregnancy, early miscarriage and my periods stopping. I started seeing Gemma for regular reflexology sessions in early December 2015 and altered my nutrition and lifestyle from her advice. In January 2016 I found out I was expecting. I couldn't believe it; I was scared and excited all at the same time. The Early Pregnancy Unit confirmed I had a baby with a gorgeous heartbeat in my uterus and that I had even ovulated from the ovary that didn’t have a fallopian tube! Now that little heartbeat is a 10 week old baby! I am truly grateful to Gemma for her restorative, balancing reflexology, compassionate attitude and positivity. I do not believe I would be in this position without her."
