Travis's classes have a classical Hatha Yoga framework which include static and dynamic asanas (postures), breath awareness and relaxation. The classes are designed to be suitable for all levels - providing modifications for those who want them and further development for students who want to be challenged. I always aim to provide a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere to practice in and a safe space to release tension and alleviate stress.
I provide safe practice, good alignment, body awareness, and regularly incorporate the use of yoga breathing techniques into my classes. Due to strong Iyengar influences throughout my yoga journey I sometimes use props to help students reach their full potential in a pose.
Yoga Training and experience I have studied with many teachers across the country as my learning has progressed and have been teaching since 2012. I have a British Wheel of Yoga diploma in teaching yoga (level 4 on the national framework), taught by Andrea Newman (now part of the SWYA).
I came to yoga in January of 2009 mid-way through my bachelor's degree with an inquisitive attitude and a stiff back. I remember feeling an unbelievable sense of freedom of movement and openness in my head and heart after that first class; it was fantastic and I couldn't wait to find out more. I was soon attending a minimum of 6 hours of classes a week and going to workshops on the weekends.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions about me or the class.
