Live (online, zoom) classes with Charlotte & Guests
Charlotte weaves Somatic practices - more fluid, explorative, primal motions - with postures and movements more commonly associated with a physical yoga practice. She is most interested in how these gestures bring us into embodied awareness and a compassionate relation with self though. Exploring the movement within stillness and the stillness within movement, whether there is more containment or fluidity, there is ample time and space to listen in to your deeper needs. In this way these mindful, meditative practices can help us drop beneath striving and 'getting it right', towards liberation and releasing stress, trauma and tension from body tissues.
Charlotte is joined within the Whole Health offerings by similarly experienced teacher Leonie Taylor and Leah Barnett; both of whom she has worked with for many years and who bring their own voices and specialisms along. This creates a timetable over each week that offers a complementary rhythm of differing ways of tuning into and caring for our whole being; body and mind.
Each class is appropriate for all levels. Whether it involves floorwork, standing, dynamic, restorative or meditative practices, there is the space and kind attention for each person to move in ways that feel supportive and opening - and pause whenever they need. In this way we can ease open muscles, fascia and posture in a safe and body intelligent way, with an emphasis on the breath and kind, mindful attention.
We can all benefit from this emphasis on grounding, awareness and attunement into our inner landscape; a guide to navigating the often choppy waters of life with ease and equanimity.
These practices that cultivate embodied awareness are also great accompaniments to a more dynamic practice or to bring deeper awareness for the more experienced, as well as initial opening for the beginner.
Charlotte also specialises in therapeutic yoga for digestive, immune and respiratory health, as well as relief from stress, burnout, fatigue and anxiety. Leonie and Leah are involved with Charlotte's teaching and writing within these subjects too. All of the classes are appropriate for these and other health needs.

Every other Sunday, 9:00-9:45pm
Yoga Nidra is a form of guided meditation also known as “yogic sleep” or “effortless relaxation”. You can practice it in any comfortable position, ideally lying down, even in your bed! . The practice draws our attention inwards, away from the outer world of phenomena and into our own sense of being-ness. During the practice we drift between the states of wakefulness and deep rest, sometimes sleep, allowing our body to find its natural state of equilibrium (homeostasis).
Every other Sunday, 6:00-7:00pm
A deeply nourishing hour of guided therapeutic Thai massage, gentle movement and meditation. Touch is not only relaxing, allowing us to drop into parasympathetic tones, but we can also use varying techniques and pressure to help reduce pain, increase mobility and connect inwards to what's here and now. No previous experience necessary.
MINDFUL & SOMATIC YOGA
In these more 'upright' classes we will playfully explore standing postures and movement. We will also add resistance to expand strength, mobility and stability within our practise, but still within the context of mindfulness, fluidity and personal adaptations that respond to meditative attunement.
