Thank you for dropping by my website.
A warm welcome to yoganorfolk.com and my studio ‘The Bhuti Yoga Retreat’. I hope you will find this website and my teaching inspiring and informative and I hope it encourages you to take that first step to discovering the endless possibilities, marvels and benefits of yoga. If you are thinking yoga is not for me, or you feel intimidated by some of the poses that you may see on social media, then let me reassure you, there is a style of yoga for ‘every body’, you do not have to be a contortionist or super fit or flexible.
I believe all beings want to thrive, to live a healthy, happy and fulfilling life. A life of laughter, joy and abundance and of course to be healthy in mind and body. I hope you agree.
Yoga is a little like a diet, there is no one diet that fits all, we are all individuals and yoga is akin to discovering the perfect balanced diet and just as the correct diet can nourish and nurture you, so too can a regular yoga and meditation practice.
Yoga is a holistic practice, it provides you with the tools and techniques to manage and care for our own health and wellbeing. Yoga is listening in and tuning into our body, mind and breath. In yoga "We use the pose to get into our body and not the body to get into the pose".
With a regular consistent and disciplined practice you can reach optimal health and thrive and transform not just on your yoga mat but in your daily lives too.

Should you avoid the roll up/roll down method?
Having practiced pilates for many years I was always instructed to ‘roll-down’ and ‘roll-up’ and I thought for many years this was safe. However when I did my yoga teacher training with the British Wheel of Yoga – the group I studied with spent a great deal of time over the three years training on…
The benefits of mindfulness meditation
I have a regular meditation practice and I cannot stress the benefits of a regular (mindfulness) meditation practice. There is scientific evidence that shows how meditation affects our brain, our mood our thinking and thought patterns (all in a positive way). Meditation is often a forgotten practice even by those practicing yoga regularly. There seems…
Yoga as therapy
I am often asked what the difference is between ‘yoga therapy’ and ‘yoga’. I will explain briefly. I spend a great deal of my time as a yoga and meditation teacher working with clients on a one-to-one basis. I work with clients with all kinds of conditions, these range from cancer, back and neck pain, joint pain, chronic fatigue, mental…
