cow face YOGA
Breathe In, Breathe Out
of cow face club
My name is Hannah. I gained my yoga TT in Rishikesh, India, where I met many cows! They are regarded as holy creatures there and can be found roaming freely through the towns. They brought me a lot of joy during my experience.
I am passionate about utilising yoga to change our neuroplasticity and help our often busy nervous systems to chill out a bit. When I began my journey of teaching yoga to improve mental health, one of the first asanas (poses) I discovered which benefits us psychologically was Gomukhasana (Cow Face Pose).
This is why I teach under COW FACE CLUB, a ‘club’ where I encourage the inclusion of everyone of all abilities, backgrounds and ages. I wanted to bring back what I learnt to my practice in England, including my new found love for cows!
The most common phrases I hear are “I’m not flexible enough” or “I’m too old.” But I truly agree with the quote “if you can breathe, you can yoga.” I believe yoga can be a really beneficial tool in releasing tension, promoting a sense of calm, as well as looking after our lovely bodies physically. And it really doesn’t matter whether you can touch your toes!
I look forward to practising with you. Please feel free to email if you have any questions about a session, or even just want to find out a bit more about yoga itself!

Several years ago Hannah became my personal fitness trainer and in the past two years she introduced me to yoga. I found that yoga is a different way of getting fit. It relieves tension, gives me greater flexibility and tones up my body. I am 86, so to me it is important that I keep my balance and muscles as fit as possible. Hannah radiates energy and enthusiasm for her profession and in a gentle and calming way she always makes me feel better after a a class.
Hannah is a compassionate and patient teacher who weaves mindfulness into gentle yoga practise. I have found my yoga sessions with her to be an opportunity to slow down and regain my focus. I have also noticed a new freedom of movement in my body. The sessions are a great antidote to stress.
