My name is Charlie Anderson Sumner and I am a yoga teacher based in Surrey.
What is yoga?
This ancient system has many definitions, perhaps the most succinct of which is this, by the ancient sage Patanjali:
"Yoga is the settling of the mind into silence" YOGA SUTRAS 1:2
A quiet mind, how wonderful!
Yoga offers the tools to achieve this through the physical postures, breath work, concentration and meditation.
Can YOU do yoga?
Yoga is for everyone. You don't have to be bendy, fit or strong to come to class.
What can YOU expect from my class?
In 90 minutes I guide you through a mix of flowing and static asana (postures) designed to open your body, improve strength, flexibilty and energetic flow. You'll be encouraged to find your edge physically and also offered teachings on yoga philosophy, energy systems and how a connection with the breath can be a valuable tool in life.
At the end of class you enjoy a well deserved relaxation.
