Welcome to Mindfulness Yoga with Kevin Glaister. I offer group yoga classes and individual tuition to both men and women of all age and abilities in Stroud, and within Gloucestershire. I teach in a way which is clear, safe and accessible to all. I am a mature and sincere teacher and practitioner, dedicated to sharing the gifts of yoga and mindfulness with students of all levels and traditions, and am not a fitness instructor teaching yoga postures.
Mindfulness Yoga is different from many traditional yoga practices in that there is less of a focus on the exact posture achieved and more focus on body/mind awareness. I see the practice of yoga as a means to living well, and 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 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 paying attention in a particular way; On purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally -'Jon Kabat Zinn'
