I began my practice of Yoga with Mairi over two years ago and have taken many classes with Mairi over this time. For years I had been ‘dipping into yoga practice’ and as I settled into practice with Mairi I realised I was learning yoga for the first time, learning the depth and beauty of it, this foundation for living each day. The nurturing, reliable and stable foundation of Yoga with Mairi has helped to carry me through the major challenges of this past year. It enhances my energy and motivation and provides the calm to help me sleep. Mairi has a gift for teaching, for designing classes for different needs, for being sensitive, gentle and kind and for taking you with her on the journey.
After an illness I was looking for an exercise class where I could increase my strength, my flexibility and my lung capability. With Yoga, and with Mairi, I have achieved those objectives and so much more. My classes are the most relaxing hours of my week but in addition I achieve all of my exercise objectives, and I have also started to understand the benefits of meditation. I am still a beginner, but Yoga has been such a revelation and Mairi is such a good teacher. I would recommend Yoga with Mairi for so many different reasons.
At the beginning of the first lockdown I found Mairi online and joined her classes. Having studied yoga for a few years, I can honestly say that Mairi’s approach to teaching is one of total care for her students. She has adapted to Zoom with clarity so I know exactly what she is teaching me and my flexibility, strength (mental and physical) and suppleness have improved considerably. I look forward to the classes which include a good variety and even some freebies! She is inclusive, cost wise, and I can thoroughly recommend her as a yoga teacher. Thank you my friend, teacher and mentor.
It is a great pleasure to participate in Mairi’s yoga classes. She is the great teacher not only because her ability to explain what to do and gently correct you if needed, but even more the ability to keep you relaxed and focused at the same time. I find that one of the hardest things in our hectic life style today is to be present in the moment, connected with your body and spirit and that is exactly what I feel her classes provide. I highly recommend Yoga with Mairi to anyone who wants to feel relaxed, recharged and reconnected.
At my stage of development in yoga practice, I am finding something new and valuable, from Mairi’s teaching to take into my routine, and also subtle corrections to some things I wasn’t aware I was doing not quite right.
