When the mind is calm, everything else follows. Strength, stamina and flexibility are sustainable side effects from our approach.
Carolyn specialises in yoga to de-stress and relax quickly. Integrating her yoga teaching with extensive experience as a mental health professional and senior manager for mental health services in the NHS and a Local Authority, classes and events are designed to counter the impact of modern living. There is a very good chance you will feel calmer after your very first class.
Overwhelmed, constantly stressed and exhausted with too much to do but there is too much at stake for you to stop doing what you are doing? Mindful yoga and de-stress workshops and courses can bring you back from a state of overwhelm.
If you also spend long periods of your working day sitting in meetings, at a computer or driving, the more dynamic and energetic classes such as After Work Yoga and Sun Power Yoga will raise your heart rate, get you moving, increase strength, stamina and flexibility, alongside targeting tight, tense, constricted areas such as the back and the shoulders. And all of this is just a side effect, for the main aim of these classes too, is to still and calm the mind.
Connect with yourself and our yoga community at The Drawing Room Butleigh, a beautiful farmhouse near Glastonbury, in small personalised classes with a semi-private feel; there are never more than 6 in a class, workshop or retreat. Or join us for classes in Taunton or at the wonderfully renovated Crispin Hall in Street.
What people have said.
“I am a fairly new yogi and joined Carolyn’s classes a few months ago as a way of destressing after work. I didn’t think it would make much of a difference… I have been really astonished at how much I have learned in such a short space of time and how much of a difference it has made to how I feel, look and sleep. I have been a very poor sleeper for many years and tried all sorts of things to try to get more than a couple of hours a night. For the last couple of months I have managed to sleep through a whole night on a regular basis, not every night but most and it feels fabulous! The change is absolutely related to taking up yoga … I can’t recommend Carolyn’s classes enough…she is thorough, thoughtful and attentive…a natural teacher…and passionate about yoga.” Pip.
