Aerial and circus arts, stretch/flexibility and conditioning
Video classes available during lockdown include stretching and conditioning without gym equipment. If you have a rigging point and aerial equipment in your home and would like a video lesson then this is also possible as long as you have a mat and I am able to assess your level beforehand. I also offer artistic advice to those creating an act. Post lockdown I have a space in Bristol where I can teach, or can travel to you if you have an aerial space we can use. I am a Cirque du Soleil artist (OVO, solo silks and duo web / AXEL, vertical chain, bungee and aerial hoop) and have 22 years performing and teaching in the circus industry. I have written a teacher training course for aerial arts and hold a level 2 ETM qualification in fitness instructing.

Private Yoga Sessions- taught in English. Online and in-person
Having a physical and mental outlet- such as a regular home yoga practice- is so important. During the quarantine, I turned my in-person yoga classes into online sessions. The virtual classes I teach have proven effective for my beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. I have also resumed teaching in-person yoga sessions and classes in Paris. Yoga aligns your physical movement with your breath and increases physical strength and flexibility. Practicing yoga with a private teacher enables you to have the proper alignment for the postures, which ensures the most benefits. Yoga is great for people of all ages, shapes, and physical capabilities. Just a few of the many benefits of yoga include relaxation, relief of back discomfort, muscle tension, and stress. The private lessons that I teach are tailored to your goals and physical abilities. Yoga sessions will be given in the comfort of your home, or outside as weather permits. I am happy to answer any further questions you have, or set up a session with you at your convenience. Please take note that different fees will apply for groups, or corporate classes (depending on location and number of students). Thank you!

Pilar
Hatha yoga, to improve your physical and mental performance
Trained in the Iyengar method in India, Paris and Madrid, Pilar has been practicing yoga for more than twenty years in Geneva. Alignment, fluency and listening are the watchwords of his teaching. His pedagogical approach aims to adjust the posture of each student according to his anatomy and his abilities. "In my classes," she says, "I try to help the student develop a sensitive awareness, to discover themselves by feeling. Thanks to a physical work where concentration and the movement of attention play a big role, the fluidity wakes up in all parts of the body and helps to improve the functioning of the different systems. "

Cathy
Private Yoga classes (Iyengar, Vinyasa, Sivananda, Ashtanga) at home
Having 20+ years of experience, I am interested in sharing my knowledge of yoga and the benefits of Reiki (energy harmonization) with everyone. I was trained in India where I lived for several years (Iyengar, Sivananda). Iyengar's individual approach allows you to work the postures accurately using the breath, without hurting yourself, learning to listen to him. I currently practice dynamic yoga based on a series of postures by consciously breathing that allows the mind to gradually let go. Private lessons allow you to establish a personal practice program. After a first interview, during which your motivations and needs are studied, you will leave with a personalized session to practice at home autonomously. I establish and guide a practice that will be reevaluated and intensified gradually by integrating reflexology and Reiki (energy harmonization) during each course. Private lessons can be done at the teacher's home or in English or in French. Enjoy a moment of well-being!

Pilates is a method of exercise and physical movement designed to stretch, strengthen, and balance the body.

Mélissa
Tailor-made yoga classes (at home, outdoors or online)
I mainly teach Vinyasa yoga, a dynamic and fun course that contains variations of asanas (postures) to strengthen the body and mind, but also to deeply relax them. As the sessions progress, I accentuate the intensity of the exercises, and I gradually integrate new postures to allow the student to progress constantly, always at his own pace and according to his needs. Each class contains a few minutes of relaxation / meditation, which we will do at the beginning, at the end of each session, but also between the strengthening and flexibility exercises. Each course is tailor-made, according to your needs, your desires, and your abilities. I would like to accompany you during these courses because I am convinced that yoga can change your daily life. Regular yoga practice can improve your breath management even in the most difficult situations, it gives you better blood circulation and benefits on all organs of the body by eliminating toxins. By practicing yoga, you will also be able to sculpt your body, improve your concentration and release accumulated stress or tension.
