Align - Body and Mind
Yoga, Pilates & movement have been a huge part of my daily life for the best part of a decade.. and like all beautiful things in life, what that means and looks like has and continues to evolve as my life changes and my experience grows…
Living in the beautiful Derbyshire Dales, we are surrounded by and spend a lot of time in the great outdoors… Exposed to the changing seasons, I often find myself drawn to reflect on our own cyclical nature and the seasons we live through as humans; daily, monthly, yearly and cycles throughout our lives…This plays a big part in my own practice, what I share in my weekly classes and monthly offerings.
It can be so easy to get swept up in the busy-ness of modern life and I really believe that calving out a little bit of time for ourselves is the best thing we can do to live a happier life, to serve our own needs, that of our immediate families and wider circles…Since becoming a mother in 2021 I understand how challenging it can be to prioritise your own needs & health but invite you to put yourself first, just sometimes & see how the positivity ripples from you to the people around you.
My dream for Align Body and Mind is to hold beautiful space for you to connect to your true self, to find peace through movement, rest through stillness and nourish your body and mind.
I hold weekly Hatha & Flow Yoga classes, Monthly restorative Yin & Yoga Nidra, “Moon Magic” women’s circle and ritual under the full moon. In the summer months we have grounding Sunset Yoga at the magical StarDisc, a peaceful setting surrounded by nature with stunning views of Wirksworth & beyond!
If you have any questions or are curious about any of these offerings, then I would love to hear from you! I hope to see you soon!
Hatha Flow Yoga
Flowing through poses in time with your breath (whilst keeping the alignment principles of Hatha), a great way to energise, gently increase your heart rate, open up your body and focus your mind.
Flow & Let Go Yoga
Starting with an flowing sequence to lift your mood, build your strength & find connection...ending with delicious restorative postures to relax & wind down to.
Finding balance for body and mind... this method allows time to hold each asana (pose) and focus on correct alignment.
(Great for beginners as well as more experienced practitioners)
Focusing on strengthening our deep, stabilising and core muscles, helping to improve posture, muscle tone and to relieve pain.
Targets our connective tissues (ligaments, tendons and fascia) rather than our big movement muscles. In Yin yoga we hold fewer poses for longer periods of time aiding in increased mobility, lowering stress levels, calm and balance for the mind.
Ultimate relaxation is found in this guided meditation, the perfect way to unwind
Guiding you through Yogic postures, breathing techniques (pranayama) and deep relaxation to help reduce stress, worries and issues such as back pain associated with pregnancy... as well as breathing practices, meditations and practical positions and props to help with birth. A time to connect with your body, your baby & other women sharing this experience at the same time...

''Holly is extremely professional, and offers a calming atmosphere where you can relax and really enjoy the massage and your body being taken care of. I will most certainly be going back again for another massage and could not recommend her fantastic services more''

"Holly has a lovely technique when teaching her yoga classes & retreats. I first met Holly by attending her Monthly Yin/Yoga nidra classes. These classes are perfect & Holly’s yoga nidra is amazing. She speaks her yoga nidra from start to end - it is not a tape. I have also attended Holly’s Day Retreats. The balance is perfect & her teaching is so refreshing. "
