The diversity of students who attend my adult classes is phenomenal, from all walks of life, from teens to over 85's.
This is because yoga is for everyone, it is about working to your capacity. As long as you are breathing (aka alive) there is a yoga practice to support you, to keep your body and mind feeling healthy and good, so you can stay fit, relaxed and smiling.
What participants have said about online Zoom classes with Maxine :
"Maxine, what an effective virtual class, just as good as being there in real life! “
Hi Maxine, it was a lovely session - I love the narrative you have going on and was happy to be there with you - merci and see you next week!'
'Maxine thank you for the active flow – I feel full of breath and energy'
Hi Maxine, the Sunday workshop worked very will for me, thank you very much. I loved going slow today and 'sensing' the space around me; a vision or a feeling in three dimensions. The bird cage mudra is also relaxing. I am hoping to join on Tuesday night this week.'
''Thanks sweet Maxine for the lovely active flow..you are so wise and great at bringing us all together into the magic connections yoga can make with self.. feel emotions flowing'
"Thank you for the deep work today. I felt like a new wind turbine, the systems cleared and standing tall and jubilant'
"Hi Maxine. You are a star! Thanks for this morning."
"What an excellent class! Your instructions were super clear, your breathing instruction is excellent. Very well done.”
"At the end I find that my breathing has become a refreshing experience, my spine has elongated, and my head feels clearer and younger than I would have thought possible”.
"This morning was wonderful I’ve been feeling great all day thanks Maxine"
"Your instructions are very clear, it feels like a very safe environment, you teach from the heart with a huge amount of experience."
"Thanks for the class today. The process helps me toward a deep release which has been elusive for quite some time. A gift..."
"Thanks Maxine for a great class today. I love the way you encourage me to challenge what I am capable of. I am amazed how I never feel I am forcing my body. I always leave feeling inspired and refreshed!"
"Yoga provides the natural counterbalance to my academic occupation… This is a point that I’m sure you will appreciate, as you regularly stress the holistic and non-conceptual character of Yoga."
"I value your approach to yoga because you emphasise the spirituality of the discipline. The clarity of your instructions, your willingness to demonstrate, and your patience with your more elderly students make you a great teacher!"
"Maxine is an excellent teacher… I feel like breathing correctly throughout the day (because of her teaching) and not just during class! I really enjoy and appreciate that Maxine talks you through and demonstrates every exercise and position… Maxine is a great person! She will always make you feel welcome."
"Yoga is now a key highlight in my busy week! Maxine’s care for and attention to all her students at all times is very special indeed. Having recently sustained a cycling injury, she has been able to juggle between the needs of the class and my more specific needs – in a very relaxed and professional manner conducive to best practice in the all senses of the word!"
"The classes are very well prepared and varied. Maxine explains how yoga is about the interconnectedness of body and mind. There is personal attention and the groups are small. I leave with a great feeling of well-being after the class."
"Maxine – if I had to sum up the feeling I have after the class – I’d say that I feel that you create a safe space where there is a real emphasis on relaxing. I felt I was travelling to a state of inner peace!"
"Thanks Maxine for a great class today. I love the way you encourage me to challenge what I think I am capable of doing! I am amazed how I never feel I am forcing my body… "
"You make the poses appear deceptively effortless in the way you ease me in with my breath. I left feeling stretched and refreshed."
"I loved the pranayama (breathing) sequence at the end. It was totally new to me, but you guided us through with just the right amount of info that I really enjoyed it!"
''I'm really enjoying the weekly sessions, and not only my body but my mind leaves relaxed too. I'm now going to book on of your monthly yoga mornings. Would love to try it''
''I have really enjoyed yoga with you this term, it is really great to take time out for me each week and to listen to my body. I always feel refreshed after your classes''.
Loved this active flow...it was challenging in good ways! Lots of interesting body movements that my bod hadn’t felt in a while! Thank you so so much for sharing these recordings with me!
