The proof of the pudding is in the eating
I myself was very apprehensive to the idea of teaching online classes to begin with, so I can totally understand why it can put some people off. Though apart from the odd zoom glitch I now very much enjoy teaching online! If this is you then have a read below to see if it puts your mind at ease. Or better still why not try a class and see for yourself?
I am also very humbled with the feedback I've received so far... thank you so much to everyone who took the time to write, it's very much appreciated.
Morag’s yoga classes really make a difference to my life
I started attending these classes on Zoom at the beginning of lockdown. Morag’s yoga classes really make a difference to my life. She has a lovely soothing voice, taking us through energising challenging postures as well as calming relaxation all the while focusing on mindful yoga breathing. I particularly enjoy the qigong elements of the class for energy flow, healing and stress-relief. At the end of the class I feel nicely stretched out and relaxed. I have a sense of calm - feeling centred, grounded and more able to cope with life. Thank you Morag!”
The breathing exercises are powerful... and bring me into a balanced state
“It’s a delight to join Morag for Yoga ~ her classes have a basis in classical Hatha Yoga, like the Sun Salutation, but are always varied. The breathing exercises she includes are powerful and, combined with Yoga postures and relaxation, bring me into a balanced state. Afterwards, I feel invigorated, calm and my energy is restored.”
The classes are friendly and Morag has a clear way of explaining the postures
"I like the holistic approach of Morag’s yoga classes and I’ve noticed improvements in my flexibility and wellbeing since starting. Being able to attend the online classes during lockdown is fantastic and it feels like we are all in the same room. The classes are friendly and Morag has a clear way of explaining the postures as well as the benefits of them. I always leave feeling re-energised."
Improvements in strength, balance, flexibility and mood
Since doing these weekly yoga classes I have seen improvements in strength, balance, flexibility and mood.
I can follow Morag's instructions online very easily
The fact that I can still attend weekly yoga sessions with the same teacher is a godsend just now. I love Morag’s classes and missed them in the first weeks of lockdown and was so glad when she announced she would offer them online. In some ways it’s better as I don’t have to leave the comfort of my own home! We get the same great practice from dynamic flows to subtle energy work and of course the wonderful yoga nidra. Morag’s teaching is very clear and precise and I can follow her instructions online very easily. And the fact that we can tune in and touch base with others is a great boost, keeping the yoga community connected.
Really enjoying the online classes
Really enjoying the online classes, a great way to keep up yoga practice in testing times.
I have felt the same benefits doing our practice on zoom as I did in person
"Morags 'in person' classes are wonderful and although I had a few reservations at first I have felt the same benefits doing our practice on zoom as I did in person. Its a great way for me to keep my body physically flexible and de stress. After Morags classes I feel like I've had a workout and my body feels like its had a massage all in one. You get the same peaceful feeling after the zoom class too."
She weaves, into her classes, wonderfully beneficial tools from the world of energy therapy
Morag’s zoom classes are like a breath of fresh air. Not least because the yoga that Morag practices feels to me especially therapeutic. Also because she weaves, into her classes, wonderfully beneficial tools from the world of energy therapy. Real take home pieces that can be done at home in only a few moments to refresh mind, body and spirit.
Morag’s zoom classes perfectly compliment the Iyengar yoga that I practice, bringing in a softer still very potent flavour.
Morag's online classes are invigorating and an oasis of calm at this time
Morag's online classes are invigorating and an oasis of calm and serenity at this time. We work diligently and fluidly in the poses or asanas and breathing exercises, which are skilfully linked to the relevant Shiatsu meridians and seasonal aspects of Yoga. We always finish with a deep relaxation and visualization and feel completely relaxed, renewed and energised by the end of the session. I would definitely recommend a visit to her website and book for the online sessions. Wonderful.
The style of yoga and times differs each day which is really beneficial
I think it speaks volumes in itself that I have thoroughly enjoyed attending all of Morag’s online yoga classes during lockdown. The style of yoga and times differs each day, which is really beneficial and definitely promotes the post class relaxed and happy vibes. Thank you so much Morag for enabling my much loved yoga practice to continue online.
