yoga relaxation classes Stratford upon Avon

I have been asked many times in the last few weeks about how we ‘just be’ or find ourselves ‘in the moment’. Whatever you wish to call it it’s a moment of total awareness, really connecting and feeling deeply. A truly wonderful moment of being completely present. If you have never experienced this it may read as mumbo jumbo or just a bit too spiritual but it’s not the case.

I used to be the person who couldn’t switch off or relax or tune in but I’m not that person anymore and I feel happier and calmer for it. How can we describe the feeling? For me, it’s a total appreciation of where I am at that time, what I’m doing and how my mind and body feel. It’s where the body meets the mind, everything working together and completely connecting. It can be a high maybe during a high-intensity class when, in that moment, you feel stronger than ever, euphoric, the fittest you could be. Equally, it can be during relaxation after a deep stretch when your body feels fabulous and the muscles are released of tension and joints are looser. Maybe just taking a walk or catching a moment with someone you love being with. It can take on all forms. I make no secret of my passion for teaching and I have been extremely fortunate to have experienced many ‘perfect moments’ or flashes of fitness magic as we sometimes call it. During relaxation, maybe after Pilates or Yoga you can find that special being completely present moment. I can’t tell you how to get there but I can tell you that if you really need it you will find it. In my opinion, you take what you need. More often than not it’s about timing.

We are forever changing and growing and therefore our needs change too. I have always believed that when people come to a class it’s short-sighted to think that they are just there for the exercise. We all have our reasons why we show up and that needs to be understood and respected. It’s not uncommon for people to cry during yoga and find a huge release. Whilst releasing our bodies physically we often release mentally too find that mind-body connection. If reading this you find it hard to understand or feel you have never experienced this it may be that you just haven’t needed it. If you need it you will find it.

“Just had a taster of Power Pilates with Charlotte and it was AMAZING… can’t wait until next Wednesday to do a full class”

HIIT and toning classes are very energetic, lots of fun and you definitely get all those muscles working. You certainly feel like you’ve had a great work out. Charlotte makes working out/exercise fun and her classes just fly by. She has my highest recommendation.”

“Charlotte’s positivity and enthusiasm are always fantastic but she has excelled herself during lockdown by adapting quickly to offer motivational Yoga, Pilates, Toning and HIIT classes online. Her classes give you a real boost, cater for all abilities but also challenge you to go further if you want to. She has kept us all going and kept our achy shoulders, backs and necks at bay during lockdown”

“I have been doing Pilates and Yoga with Charlotte for 18 months and enjoy the classes very much. Charlotte keeps a careful eye on you during the class to make sure that you are not going to hurt yourself. She refreshes the content of the classes all the time so it is never dull. She is professional, but also friendly and fun. I happily recommend her classes”

“I took Charlotte’s classes for a year and unfortunately had to stop due to work commitments, but no other exercise seemed to work for me the way her classes did. Since being able to rejoin I’ve felt fab! Not only a great fitness teacher but a super friendly, lovely person too”
