My main scheduled classes are based in St Austell in the village of Trethurgy and also held at The Cornwall Spa Hotel.

My classes are for all bodies, all ages and levels of experience, there are different styles of yoga practice to suit your body needs. If you need to relax more, strengthen, become more flexible, prepare for a birth. Help heal from depression, recover from illness or injury? You can choose a class for you, making the practice completely personal to what’s moving through you right now…so even when you feel you may not be able to practice you absolutely can.
Rest, move and sculpt your body- whatever you need, I have created classes to help you feel healthy, intuitively tune into your body and find peace.
Listed below are descriptions of specialist classes i have created and currently teach, just to give you more information about each one and how the different styles offer a unique healing that may suit your mind and body at different times in your life’s journey.

Yin Yoga is a challenging but very therapeutic style of yoga that works on rehabilitation of the joints and muscles, with deep stretching techniques to get to deeper layers of the muscle fibres and joints. Making this class a great option and accompaniment for any one who regularly takes up any sport, running or weight lifting. Or for anyone wanting a more supple, flexible and moveable body.

TENSION TRAUMA RELEASE
In the Tension, Trauma Release Class you will really start to Break through the tension and cleanse your Energy. I wanted to share practices that I’ve used for many years now that have supported my healing and path to living the best life. Of health and wellness.
Ive infused Heal Movements within the class and I share with you very special life alignment therapies for the support and healing of stress and trauma….it can be for anyone who experiences stress— From daily stress and tension, pressures, demands to prolonged chronic stress and injury that hasn’t been healed or released. These therapies and movement techniques are used on trauma survivors, for PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and for the release of everyday stress that we all experience.
Our bodies are wise beyond belief, with the capacity to heal… but to live a life in balance in this busy, fast paced world is hard! Life stress, chaos and bad days. Every day stress is everywhere! In workplace tension, environmental toxins, old injuries, toxic relationships, sleep issues, back pain and digestive issue… to much deeper traumas like relationship and childhood trauma, a traumatic or negative birth experience and chronic health conditions. Maybe it’s in your job, your work, or your just holding it all together balancing a family! We all hold onto that vibration of stress in some way and it can stay in specific parts of the body and nervous system! This is prolonged stress, that our bodies are just not designed for! Culturally we have learned to suppress and indure this prolonged stress, and it continues to manifest itself into ailments and illness.
Its time to commit to your own healing from the effects of all the stress and hurt your body has been through. The deep cellular memory that is in need of healing. Our cells tell a story. Our bodies are made of billions of cells and microorganisms, each one containing biological and emotional DNA. Every experience, every feeling is stored up and influence your entire cellular memory—and the health of your body.
you can learn how to undo the pain, empty yourself of tension and the stories that keep you stuck. We can dissolve unhelpful cellular memory with very specific life alignment therapies. When we move through pain, loss, stress or trauma the body and nervous system start to shut down parts of itself, this stress gets stored on a deeper level, we can hold onto that tension for years, for some people a lifetime! And creates tension, chronic body pain, and even illness or disease… We have to do the inner healing. The physical work to undo the hurt we’ve been through! Cut the cords and renew, we all need it.
You will learn how to bring the nervous system back into balance, with TRE ( Tension Trauma Release Exercise) Whole Body Vibration Energy Movement and Myiofacial Release techniques. Discover a practice and healing that works to help calm the nervous system and bring the body back into balance. These are all self healing techniques that will strengthen the mind and body discord.
….Cellular memory is so powerful, but the attachment to stress and trauma it holds can be released. If you allow yourself the space for the body to let it go. You can live a life of alignment and you deserve to. For your energy and the energy we transfer to others, this cycle needs to change. This will empower you with knowledge and techniques to heal and change your life for the better.
LIGHT VINYASA MORNING YOGA FLOW
Feel awake & energised with a flowing light Vinyasa yoga morning sequence. We stretch the whole body and target all of the places that might need a little extra space and life breathed into them after a night of sleep.
The class is designed to incorporate postures and stretches that twist and open the body and wring out the internal organs to release the body of deep toxins. This class is focused on complete detoxification of the body and mind. We practice twist postures (Asana) inversion postures that massage internal organs, ridding the body of impurities and spinal openers for realignment, whilst combining a focus on breath work to gently massage internal organs. The lymphatic system, eliminatory system, circulatory system and digestive system get worked at the same time to boost the body’s natural ability to cleanse.
BODY & BACK CARE YOGA
A strong and healthy back is essential to your well-being and vitality… yet often our sedentary lives, poor postures and modern day living can greatly weaken our backs and leave us in constant back pain. This class takes a special focus on healing, nurturing and developing a stronger, healthier back; reuniting you with the freedom of being pain free and healthy. Postures are supported fully with props, chairs , bricks and bolsters making this class totally achievable even for the most debilitated of backs. We flow through various postures (asanas) like arching, stretching, lengthening and twisting to move the whole spine, as our bodies were intended… movement is the key to a healthy back and you are only as young as your spine is flexible.
YOGA INTERVAL TRAINING
Tina’s Interval Yoga work out is a high intensity, powerful and dynamic style of yoga, designed for complete weight loss, fat burning and ultra-toning, as well as improving cardio vascular capacity, flexibility and strength. We keep the core strength to the max and trim the tummy with sequences that are based on scientific research that suggest using interval training at high intensity moves that are intertwined with lower intensity intervals burn more body fat; Making this class 4 times as effective in fat burning as just one steady pace through an entire routine.
