Beginner Courses

The best way to start practicing Yoga is with like minded people who are in the same shoes as you.

There is a new beginner course every other month with a different focus like Golden Age Students, Yoga for Men, Yoga with Arthritis, Yoga for Weight loss.

Blog

Whenever the topic of Yoga or Ayurveda comes up I get so excited and just want to share with my students.

We often joke in class when a student asks a question that after answering I usually finish with 'Oh, and there is a blog on it'

I am a firm believer in 'your strongest practice is your regular practice'.

To help you with this I recorded hundreds of practice videos ranging from 1 to 75 minutes to choose from. You only got 1 minute? Choose a single pose or a breathing technique. You have 30 minutes? Time for a Short & Sweet practice. Ready for some quality Yoga time? There are even a few full 75 minutes classes available. 

What is Yoga?

Yoga is the union between the Body, the Mind and the Soul.

The connecting element between these three parts of us is the breath.

The best way to describe Yoga in a sentence is as my teacher puts it: 

Yoga is more of a WORK IN as opposed to only a WORK OUT.

 

You got a question about Yoga? Check out the frequently asked Questions and Answers that I have put together like: What to expect in a class? Can you practice with an injury? Is it for your if you are not flexible?

What is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda, often called the sister science of Yoga, is the art of connecting to longevity of life.

The 5 elements of EARTH, WATER, FIRE, AIR & ETHER form the 3 DOSHAs - Vata, Pitta & Kapha.

As we get to understand our personal combination of the elements we learn how to connect our inner and outer worlds together to restore balance in ourselves.

Who am I?

My name is Dora Longman, I am a mother of 3 amazing teenagers and a wife of 1 amazing husband. I am originally from Hungary, from the beautiful city of Budapest, but lived all over the world.

I started my career as an auditor, working for the Big 4, than took a detour to motherhood and finally ended up as a Yoga Teacher. 

I consider myself a seeker, a lifelong student.

To find out about my Yoga journey and my qualifications read on.

Students say:

Lisa: 'Practising yoga with Dora has made me a better version of myself, physically, mentally and spiritually :)'

Jess: 'Can't wait to get back into yoga on a regular basis! The benefits it gives me is just unreal - thank you for coming into my life Dora.'

 

Emma: 'So it seems for at least 6 years I’ve been suffering with lower back pain. So bad that I was in pain every morning and it would often make me cry. I finally did something about it this year and started seeing a chiropractor - a costly thing but it seemed to be helping. I also started practicing yoga. But as I have got stronger with the yoga, the pain has gone and the need for the chiropractor has gone with it. Hooray for yoga! Thank you Dora'


We are living longer, yet the quality of our life is decreasing.
Having a regular Yoga practice helps you with just that - improving your quality of life. The way we achieve this is by connecting the physical body, the mind and the breath together to work in harmony.

In the process of training our body to release tension and relax - we become stronger and more flexible. In the process of training our mind to be one pointed and concentrated - we become free and in control of our thoughts. By regulating our breath we become healthy on all levels: physical, emotional and mental.

Because Yoga is a WORK IN as opposed to a WORK OUT I believe the best way to learn is either directly teacher-to-student or in a small group. This enables you to have the individual attention that may not be possible in a bigger class and allows you to build up your confidence to start practicing at home as well as in bigger size classes.
For this reason our maximum class size is 10 students for gentle and beginner classes and 15 students for flow classes. 

If you would like to have an hour connecting to yourself, learning how to be more stress resilient, improving energy levels, increasing flexibility and muscle strength, balancing metabolism, protection from injuries than check out the Group Class Timetable.

The classes consist of breathing techniques, postures, meditation and relaxation. Accessible to ALL levels as I can give you variations.

PRIVATE YOGA CLASSES / YOGA THERAPY

All the benefits of a group class with the addition of focusing on you personally. With 1-2-1 classes there is an opportunity to work with the individual and look at the whole picture. From your daily habits, to the food you eat, your posture, sleeping habits, lifestyle choices, exercise routine, the people you surround yourselves with, your Ayurvedic constitution, the thoughts and belief systems you have -
it all has an effect on your health and well being.
Getting to know our strengths and weaknesses and
learning to balance them will increase our quality of life.
My aim is to guide you there safely.
 

WHATEVER YOU WISH TO FIND IN YOUR PRACTICE I WILL TRY TO GUIDE YOU TOWARDS IT WITH THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE.

ALL YOU NEED TO BE IS OPEN MINDED.
