I'm Vikki, teacher and therapist at Blisslight Yoga. It's my desire to help people relax and be more of their natural blissful selves. Since my twenties I have been learning about human wellbeing in every sense and how we can live a happy and meaningful life.
''I have been attending the Monday night yoga class since August 2014, before this I had been trying out all kinds of yoga which was much benefit to my health and well being, however coming along to vikki's class on a Monday night was not only a fab start to the week as I came away feeling energised and an inch taller, I was left feeling completely relaxed . The class is all about doing what you can and being mindful of your body .
This class helped me through a very difficult period in my life where I was feeling stressed which impacted on my mood and at times my ability to cope . My attendance at the classes has not be good due to work commitments, however I always find the path back.
I have been suffering from back and leg pain for over 14 years, taking painkillers was like taking sugar in my coffee!!! I have not taken a painkiller for over 18 months as I now know what my body needs " yoga"
I look forward to returning to the class in July and would welcome a second class in the week run by Vikki .
I encourage anyone looking to bring strength and head space back into there life to give this class a few goes before trying another''

''As a male my experiences of yoga in the past were that it was mostly a female thing to do. I remember, as a teacher, being asked once if I would support a yoga group in the evening which included a lot of parents. I agreed but was surprised when I turned up and was asked politely if I would NOT come in as it was all females and I might make them feel self conscious. I did also once try Pilates, which I liked but it was mostly females.
I saw this yoga group advertised and decided with some trepidation to give it a try.
I liked the relaxed way Vikki organised things and made me feel welcome. I was unsure of a lot of the positions and words she used but she simply and tactfully adjusted me into the correct posture. I was surprised at how thorough some of the stretches were. Although it was conducted in a very gentle manner it was a complete workout. What amazed me more than anything else was the deep sense of relaxation and peace I experienced at the end. I honestly felt I touched a piece of bliss I had always sought but probably imagined was out of reach. In short. I am converted to the benefits of yoga and I can say in all sincerity I intend to make this a regular feature of my life.''

"Tantra yoga is relaxing beyond belief. You feel your stresses and strains and worries just seeping out of you. The experience hightened my interest in the benefits of yoga overall and I began to read about how simple stretches and breathing can have a lasting impact on your life, your relationships, your overall stress levels. I learned that I can take my yoga practice from the mat into everyday life. By that I mean, it teaches me patience (your body can't do the poses well to begin with but with time it can), focus (I have to pay attention to the small detail of the positions and listen to my body and breath properly), respect (I am aware of the limits of my body and work within those limits). I really believe my recent, regular yoga practice helped me to listen to people better, to not judge and to be open and in the moment!"
