Personal Training

One to One

At Moving with the Breath, Debra believes that the quality of the working relationship they have with their clients is critical in helping them to achieve their fitness goals.

One to One is just that. A personal appointment, individual attention and a variety of activities that keep your fitness time fresh and interesting.

Small Groups

Small groups are different and may cost slightly more that the 'keep fit class'. Small groups are limited to no more than 12 individuals - usually around 2 to 10. Groups meet in different venues or you can form your own select group with family or friends

Swiss Ball

A combination of strength, flexibility and stability is the key to a healthy body and enhanced movement performance in fitness activities and sports. The Swiss Ball has been used by physical therapists for over 50 years as a means of rehabilitating injuries. The ball helps you develop balanced strength and flexibility in all of the major muscle groups. Stabilisation exercises train you to make the most of your body's strength as you correct imbalances, improve posture and enhance your dynamic movement.

Meditate and Relax

Using YOGA NIDRA we relax the body and mind. Yoga Nidra was developed by Swami Satyananda Saraswati round about 1940 and was developed from a tantric practice of Nyasa (meaning, 'to place' or 'to take the mind to that point'). It can be practised by people of any religion or culture.

Yoga Nidra (the term 'nidra' translates as sleep) has been called 'yogic sleep', however this is not strictly accurate. It's a state between waking and sleep, practised in a totally relaxed state - a sort of psychic or dynamic sleep. In this threshold state (this state has also been called the hypnogogic state) contact with the subconscious and unconscious dimensions can occur spontaneously. In this state, the mind is extraordinarily suggestive. The aim of the practice is to release muscular tensions, emotional tensions and mental tensions. It is said that an hour of Yoga Nidra equates to four hours of conventional sleep.

Yoga Nidra, allows the mind to be 'impressed' because when relaxation is complete, receptivity is greater. It can not only relax, but restructure and reform the whole personality from within. Yoga Nidra is not hypnosis. Although the sensory channels are disconnected, awareness is maintained. The brain is completely awake. Yoga Nidra stimulates the brain by heightening awareness of the body. The progressive movement of awareness through the parts of the body clears all the nerve pathways to the brain, as well as inducing physical relaxation. It relaxes the brain by relaxing the body.

Baby Yoga & Massage

Using massage and reflexology helps to develop the essential bond between parents and baby. Massage and reflexology complement each other and baby's enjoy, need and crave touch. One to one sessions included massage techniques, the use of reflexology to aid common ailments such as colic, digestive complaints and teething. Baby Yoga is used to promote mobility and provide stimulus to promote healthy development.
