Welcome to Silver Trees Yoga with Charlotte Huggins offering yoga classes in Dorking, Reigate and Horley
I am a British Wheel of Yoga trained teacher based in Dorking offering classes in Surrey. I have many years experience teaching and a life long passion for yoga.
If you would like to improve your fitness and enhance your sense of physical and mental well-being a regular practice can help you to develop suppleness, strength and stamina as well as helping to achieve mental calmness and emotional stability.
Practising yoga regularly can also be a therapeutic tool and it is a wonderful way of restoring balance to the body after illness. With the guidance of a trained instructor yoga can help the body to recover full function following injury or operation and yoga can improve on-going conditions such as back pain and joint problems.
Not all classes are dynamic; yoga can be practised in a style often referred to as "Restorative Yoga" where poses are held with the aid of props and support. The purpose of this approach is to release deeply held tension providing a balance to a hectic and often stressful life style.
These classes are weekly and open to all regardless of age or general fitness. As each individual is able to work at their own pace within their own personal limits it means that beginners and those with experience can practise along side each other. Sessions may be suitable for students who wish to regain a sense of wellness after an operation or injury but you should check with your medical advisor first.
I teach weekly classes at the following locations:
In addition, I teach private sessions which are aimed at individuals and specific groups of people:

In 2013 I completed the second degree in the Reiki system of natural healing. My Reiki Master/Teacher is Danielle Weaver. Reiki is an ancient energy healing technique that is usually done by placing the hands in a series of positions over or slightly above the body. Reiki promotes healing by activating the relaxation response and helping the body to re-balance itself at a deep level. Reiki can only do good and never causes harm.
