More About our Yoga Teacher
Jemima Croker journeys to India each year to deepen her practice, exploring the healing powers of asana, pranayama and meditation. The foundation of her teaching is that physical Yoga is the first step on an inward journey; that feeling the interconnectedness of body, mind and spirit within our own selves helps us to realise our connection to others, our environment and the elements that make up the universe.
Physically, it is a dynamic but sensitive practice that aims to enhance the prana (energy) throughout all the channels of the body, leading the body through the fundamentals of an effective Hatha Yoga practice and exploring unfamiliar pathways that generate a flow state and circulate energy. The practice is based on four main principles that cultivate strength, flexibility, stability and relaxation whilst removing stress on a physical and emotional level; move actively, move from the centre, move with flow and breathe naturally.
Jemima believes that with practice, Yoga cultivates the embodied recognition of body, mind and spirit as one, and that this physical experience of union naturally gives rise to qualities of awareness, acceptance and interconnectedness for you to share with the world through your interpersonal relationships.
