Welcome to Mindfulness Yoga For Everyday Life with Kevin Glaister. I offer group yoga classes and individual tuition to both men and women of all ages and abilities, including beginners. I teach in a way which is clear, safe and accessible. I have taught yoga in Gloucestershire since 2000 after originally training extensively and qualifying in the Iyengar system, your guarantee of safety and quality. My teaching is now informed by other approaches to yoga and the practice of mindfulness meditation. I am dedicated to sharing the gifts and benefits of both yoga and mindfulness to all. Classes are held in Stroud, Stonehouse and Brockworth. I also offer yoga classes to individuals and groups in the workplace and in schools and colleges.
Mindfulness Yoga is different from many traditional yoga practices in that there is more focus on body/mind awareness. Rather than a means to an end, I see the practice of yoga is a means to living well, as well as to develop greater compassion and self-acceptance.
Yoga is essentially an awareness practice, rather than merely a series of stretching movements, the aim of which is to still and center the mind, which takes us out of our busy heads and into our bodies. With regular practice we learn to listen and explore the body-mind, which can lead us to develop a more harmonious relationship to ourselves and the surrounding world. A strong healthy body, and a calm, clear and compassionate mind enable us to live and enjoy life to it's full potential.
Mindfulness means maintaining a moment-by-moment awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment, through a gentle, nurturing lens.
