Classes in South Molton and Chulmleigh, one to ones and workshops

Yoga inspired by the wisdom of Vanda Scaravelli which encourages us to bring more awareness to what is happening within us as we practice.  Through conscious breathwork and a surrendering to gravity we can begin to 'undo' tension so that yoga postures can begin to unfold from within.  This wonderful way of practicing yoga invites ease and lightness into body and mind.

Classes are suitable for any level of experience.

Teignmouth

Classes & workshops

I trained as a yoga teacher with the Devon School of Yoga. My sessions are tailored to the needs of the students attending any particular session and include breathing exercises, meditative techniques and relaxation as well as traditional Yoga postures - all intended to exercise both mind and body.

Virginia Compton

I qualified as a nurse in 1992 and have worked in hospitals, prisons and community addiction service settings. I have always been driven by looking at how people can find peace and contentment. On beginning to practice Yoga in 2003 I understood that this could be a route for many to begin to find the place within themselves which enables them to experience genuine stillness.
I qualified as a Yoga teacher and completed the training to qualify as a Yoga Therapist with Duncan Hulin of the Devon School of Yoga. This learning has influenced my practice greatly, as has my most recent teacher, Debbie Mills from Texas and my first teacher, Jenni Adams from Torquay.
I practise a style of Yoga which is holistic. This means that it takes into account the energy of the individual or group, any specific physical or psychological issues on that particular day, as well as the time of day and the season.
I am a Yoga Alliance and Independent Yoga Network Registered teacher and a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals (level 3), so able to take referrals from General practitioners in the Torbay area via the ‘Fitbay’ scheme.
My focus is on the psychological as well as the physical effects of Yoga, using this therapeutically within Yoga Therapy classes or on a one to one basis. My classes are sometimes challenging but always a balanced practice with room for individuals to explore their own capabilities and to work within their limitations.
Together with a fellow Yogi I opened the Yoga Torbay centre for Yoga, meditation and Relaxation opened Autumn of 2012.

YogaPlusHolidays are for people who are curious about yoga, not fanatical about fitness. We aim to provide you with a simple, comfortable and supportive environment where you can relax and enjoy your holiday. Through your daily yoga practice, you can awaken your senses and open your mind to the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of La Alpujarra. Our programme connects you to the distinct culture, landscape and people of this fertile and fascinating region of Southern Spain. 

Yoga holidays in La Alpujarra de La Sierra, Andalusia, Spain

Five years Iyengar Yoga with Vaccasin at Bristol City Yoga before training with DSY in 2005.  Pranayama forms the core of my practice.  Classes begin with seated breathing exercises, bringing energy and awareness to the practice and informing the asana work that follows.  My teaching emphasises release of tension and balancing the body; it is deep and subtle energy work rather than a strenuous workout.  My wife Bethan and I have a house in the beautiful village of Golco in La Alpujarra de La Sierra which we are developing as both a future home and a holiday centre for small groups to enjoy yoga, massage, walking, bird watching and all round health and well being.  We will be running our first two holidays in June and September 2009.  Please see our website for details.
