Yoga
​with Pippa Graham
online and in-studio Yoga and Somatic movement

Hello, I am Pippa Graham and welcome to my website.  I have been teaching yoga for over 30 years and my integrated approach combines yoga postures with fluid movement and energy awareness.  I am based in Crouch End, N8 and Muswell Hill, N10.  I offer live online and in-studio classes and workshops.  Classes are mixed or women only.  I also offer private 1-1 yoga sessions which include yoga for after surgery for breast cancer.  These sessions can be held in studio or online.

Yoga and somatic movement​

Who are these classes for? Do you -

– have an interest in personal growth any sort?
– think you won’t be good at yoga because you are too stiff, too unfit or the wrong shape?
– realise you need to take care of yourself; you are over 50, or much younger and wise enough to know it already?

Do you struggle with -

– a busy brain
– bad posture
​- Stiffness and aches and pains that don’t shift by themselves
– overwhelm and being stuck in a flight, fight or freeze response
– emotional tension
– recuperation after illness
– hormone imbalance

What this Yoga can do for you

These classes will connect you to your inner rhythms for healing and help you tune into your nurturing feminine energy. 
Are  there parts of you that are tightening up and getting locked away, cramping your natural movement and well-being?   Have you lost your sense of free inner space?  Through balancing your posture and gentle deep movement, aches and pains are eased and forgotten corners embraced, restoring fluidity of movement, spaciousness and joy.   With Yoga, you can have the enjoyable experience of ageing and living youthfully, so if you are dealing with illness or convalescence, or being stuck in flight and fight stress response, these classes will provide a pool of resources for you to feel calm, energised and emotionally grounded.

About Yoga with Pippa

This is Yoga taken gently and deeply, guiding you home to yourself.   All Yoga is about our experience of ourselves from the inside and so is essentially somatic.  However, It is quite easy to be distracted by ‘How am I doing?’  ‘How do I look?’   ‘Am I getting it right?’   Our focus is on allowing time and space to soften our outer body, to feel sensations and to connect to our breath and life force within.  In this way we can enjoy moving freely from the mobility of our physical centre and the connection to our inner energies.    So, as we combine structural yoga poses with a freedom to move and feel, we practice  bringing  compassionate awareness to ourselves with an inner listening and respect for the wisdom of our own body.  When we allow ourselves to be present and experience the wholeness of our breath and body from within, we can expand our awareness and be more present in the world out there.   With the right attitude, Yoga brings us back into balance and integrates all parts of ourselves.  There is no competition in Yoga, there is only our own journey.
