Lois first dabbled with Yoga when working in London, using classes as an excuse to dodge late nights in the office! After moving back to Oxford, Lois found her flow at YogaVenue with a regular vinyasa practice and has never looked back. She completed her Vinyasa Yoga teacher training with Spiralling Crow at YogaVenue in 2017. Lois finds inspiration in flowing movement and smooth transitions. As a teacher, she loves to cultivate new adventures on the mat, making shapes, and finding gracefulness in unexpected places.
Lois teaches Vinyasa Yoga.
Lois Stamps instructs the following:
Vinyasa Yoga is a physically and mentally stimulating practice for all levels of experience. The focus is on our balance, breathing and connection to the earth — providing a way of moving through the asanas (postures) as well as exploring how our Yoga practice is related to our everyday life. Alignment is emphasized as a way of moving safely and deepening the practice. Expect sun salutations, chaturanga (alternative options given as well), and some inversions. In addition to the physical practice, breathing techniques (pranayama) encourage concentration and cleansing, chanting may be used to focus the mind, and Yogic scripture may be discussed from time to time. Music and hands-on assists are integral to the class.
Vinyasa classes range between 60 to 120 minutes long. All ability levels welcome. Classes are held at room temperature. Music is played in these classes.
