Yoga & Happiness combines the ancient practice of Yoga with the science of Happiness and Wellbeing to create a holistic programme for your body and mind. Each 90 minute Yoga & Happiness session invites you to:
50 minutes of gentle, sensible yoga to step towards greater comfort
Meditation and breathing to relax your nervous system
Group discussion about how our brains and bodies react and respond to life
Be a human BEING.
Not a human DOING.
It's so easy for us to not give ourselves the time and space just for our own wellbeing.
So ask yourself these questions?
Imagine how much more peaceful life can be, not just for you but for the loved ones around you.

"Well-being is fundamentally no different than learning to play the cello."
In Yoga & Happiness, we build from the findings of Dr Richard Davidson, neuroscientist and founder of the Center for Healthy Minds at the University of Wisconsin. His team concluded there are four brain circuits which are fundamental to our wellbeing:
Most excitingly, these brain circuits can be nurtured and strengthened in much the same way as you might train your body for better physical performance.
Yes, you can train your brain to be happier!

Not ready to commit to Yoga & Happiness membership? How about:
I was first drawn to yoga in the late 90’s as part of the celebrity fad led by Madonna and Geri Halliwell. We all start from somewhere don’t we? Whether it was videos at home, gyms, community halls or untutored self practice, I was always drawn back to yoga. Life brought me to Lancashire and an introduction in 2008 to Debbie Farrar who has guided me through a profound journey of yoga and onto my teacher training.
I have had a fascination with my own name since a French waiter proclaimed "Ah, Felicity! Happiness!" when I was a child. I discovered a Coursera course on The Science of Happiness in 2018 and leapt at the chance to learn about what makes us happy and why. The course pointed the way to a number of psychologists and neuroscientists who now inform my work.
Passing my experiences of yoga and the knowledge of happiness to others is incredibly rewarding. As a yoga teacher I am not instructing people how to make shapes. I’m guiding my students onto their own path of self enquiry, helping them connect deeper with themselves and find a better sense of balance, both physically and mentally.
