About Marie Glanfield
Follow Your Heart
I continued my yoga studies with many fantastic teachers from diverse backgrounds to discover a deeper understanding of the art of yoga for personal growth and also to share my passion with others. This included vinyasa flow, yin, meditation, trauma sensitive yoga, pregnancy, postnatal and children’s yoga. I now compliment my teachings with Ayurveda, the ancient holistic Indian medical science that connects us with our individual nature to promote good health and longevity.
My approach is to inspire each individual to understand their own potential spiritually and physically through developing a deep listening and receptive yoga practice. My aim is to empower every body to have the confidence and courage to explore and realise their own personal yoga journey that can enhance ease of movement and develop mental and physical strength.
Sequences are creative and varied to open up the potentiality for learning. Yoga classes are small and are uniquely tailored to the needs of the dynamics of each group. For a more bespoke experience, private tuition can be arranged. Classes are held in a beautiful bespoke garden studio just outside of Shaftesbury. The dedicated space is light, warm and peaceful. The view over the Blackmore Vale is simply stunning.
Services I offer
Pregnancy yoga is tailored to accommodate all the incredible changes a woman’s body, mind and spirit make as it transforms to sustain a new life. During this sacred time the mother is gently guided through a yoga practice designed to nurture and respect the healthy growth of her baby.
Ayurveda is an ancient Indian holistic medical system that translates as “knowledge of life”. It teaches us that with a blend of herbal medicine, nutrition, massage, spirituality, meditation and exercise designed to meet our individual constitutional nature we can live a balanced and fulfilling life.
Our internal constitution is considered in Ayurveda to be pre-determined at birth and like, nature, comprises the same elements: air, space, fire, water and earth. These life giving forces influence our way of being and when our nature is out of its own unique balance then ill health follows.
