  • Fully human, fully awake, fully alive.

    Every Tuesday morning I take the 25 bus to Heaton Moor where I visit a large Victorian house that is the home of the charity Supportability. For many years I have been teaching a weekly one-hour yoga class to a group of about 13 men and women, of various ages, who have Cerebral Palsy, or

  • Everything Flows

    Once again as we move into another year we may find ourselves reflecting on the events of our lives, and the world around us. A of lot things can happen in a year; when I began reflecting on my own life over the past year I discovered: there have been some friends getting married; others

  • The sensory world

    In 1948 a small boy was accompanying his mother as she went shopping in London. His mother took him into Selfridges as she wanted to try on a beautiful new-look coat from Dior. The boy’s mother could not afford the coat but wanted to experience herself wearing it, even if only for a few minutes.

  • It’s A Wonderful Life

    Many years ago I found myself in a cinema in Manchester during the festive season. As the lights went up at the end of the film, I looked around to see people wiping tears from their eyes, and likewise during the course of the film I had been moved to tears myself on several occasions.

  • There is a Mountain

    In October of 1967 the British singer/songwriter Donovan released a new single, ‘There is a Mountain’ which climbed to No.8 in the UK charts. The song was something of a departure for Donovan with its sunny Calypso-style and irresistible melody. Accompanying him on the track were Tony Carr on percussion, Harold McNair on flute and

A Place That’s Your Own

We all have to negotiate life’s challenges – personal relationships, work stresses, health issues, and the daily expectations of the world around us. Pressures build slowly, imperceptibly until, at last, we realise that the demands exceed our ability to cope. We can feel exhausted.

Time to Be

It’s no surprise that sometimes we need a breathing space. Time to pause, reflect and recalibrate. Time to ‘be’.

I wholeheartedly recommend Manjunaga’s sessions to anyone looking to de-stress and reconnect with themselves.

A Perfect Calm

For many people private yoga classes offer that calm, safe space.  A place to replenish physically, emotionally and spiritually.

In my early 60s I realised how much of my life I had lived in my head and how disconnected I was from my body. I sought a yoga teacher who would take an holistic approach – the integration of mind, body and spirit. Working with Manjunaga on a one-to-one basis has been a revelation.

And why not?

The benefits of yoga are many.  It offers and opportunity to find peace, clarity, an inner calm and confidence. It offers physical benefits too – strength, flexibility and poise.

These sessions have been absolutely invaluable. As an academic and someone who sits for most of the day, I can all too easily get lost in my head. An hour later and I leave Manjunaga’s feeling refreshed, ‘reset’, less anxious, and more connected with my body.

Going Deeper – a More Personal Connection

Some people want to go deeper than is possible in a group yoga class. They want a more relational experience where the teacher is available just for them. A focused private one-to-one experience where they receive the teacher’s undivided attention.

Manjunaga always starts each session by checking in with how I am and asks what I want so he can tailor the session to my needs. These sessions have been absolutely invaluable.

To Love and To Care?

A class tailored to meet your specific needs. A class designed to help increase your self-awareness so that you are better able to care for yourself. A class that will help you feel more alive, more human.

My flexibility and general fitness have greatly improved. However the most important development has been in my mental and emotional experience.

In Your Time… On Your Terms

Private one-to-one students often talk about new depths, new insights, about a valued, private, peaceful space – an oasis of calm and understanding.

Yoga has become an essential part of my daily life, supported by my always inspirational and enjoyable weekly one-to-one sessions with Manjunaga.

An Open Invitation

Some come once a week. Some monthly. Others when they can.

You can come when you want.

No pressure. No distractions.

The weekly sessions give me the ability to step out of daily life and bring a level of mindfulness that continues well beyond the lesson and into the week.
