Welcome to Silver Trees Yoga with Charlotte Huggins offering yoga classes in Dorking, Reigate and Horley
I am a British Wheel of Yoga certified teacher based in Dorking and offering classes in Surrey. I have many years experience teaching and a life long passion for yoga.
It seems unbelievable but the New Year is already a month old. If you made a new resolution to enhance your sense of physical and mental well-being and improve your overall fitness or made one of your goals is try yoga for the first time or rediscover it's benefits, how are you getting on? Contact me and let me show you how a regular yoga 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 it can improve on-going conditions such as back pain and joint problems. There are many breathing practises that are helpful to combat the effects of stress and anxiety and these are best learnt through instruction from a specialist yoga teacher.
Not all classes are dynamic; yoga can be practised in a style often referred to as "Restorative" 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, experience or general fitness. As a professional yoga instructor, I ensure that 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:
Yoga during pregnancy is a wonderful way to prepare for the birth physically, mentally and emotionally. I teach a small group in a bespoke studio every Monday evening. The venue is:

These classes are suitable for all women from their 2nd trimester right up to the birth. A mat, a block and a ball are provided but you may wish to bring a blanket along for relaxation.

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.
