Health and wellbeing for the mind, body and soul
What is Conscious Movement?
Conscious movement starts with an awareness of the breath, happening in the present moment.
Then it's about synchronising Yoga movements with breath.
The result is something really quite uplifting and empowering.
Yoga on its own it's just movement, yoga lead by the breath is where the magic lies.
Hi, I’m Charis, a city yoga instructor, health and well-being enthusiast, and general lover of life, based in London and Essex.
My journey into becoming a yoga teacher started 10 years ago when I learned how to meditate and discovered the importance of being connected to my “inner self”. Since then I have become much more conscious of what my body likes, in particular, meditation and yoga.
Having worked with corporate professionals for most of my career I realised there was a need to bring yoga classes, mindfulness and meditation into the workplace, making wellbeing much more accessible, especially those who are time poor.
This was when I started offering yoga classes and meditation lessons to corporate offices in London and Chelmsford, Essex. The response from both employees and business owners has been really positive, with companies seeing an enhance in employee wellbeing.
I also do lots of private 121 yoga sessions, many of those being yoga for beginners, which gives people the chance to gain a deeper understanding of the alignment of each pose for maximum benefit.
My Yoga Teaching
During my private 1-2-1 or office yoga classes, I like to start by encouraging a reconnection to the breath which will then be connected to movement. We will then spend 15 minutes on movements designed specifically to reverse the effects of a sedentary and stressful lifestyle, specifically a deskbound, office environment.
Once we’ve loosened up the body its then time to get a bit of a sweat on, engaging muscles with slow and controlled constant flowing movement with the breath. Ending the class with 10 minutes of guided meditation to guarantee you’ll leave the class feeling calm and content.
