Hi I’m Mary Elliott.
I set up Planetwise in March 2016 to spread the word about vegan living and yoga practice. Many people have helped along the way and it is thanks to the many friends, customers, students, teachers and staff that we enjoy a thriving community shop.
Mary Elliott, Hatha Yoga Teacher
I started my yoga journey with the British wheel of yoga, gaining the diploma to teach in 2004. I have further trained with Ranju Roy of Sadhana Mala including a visit to India in 2012.
The practice of meditation has been part of my life since 1990 when I started to attend the Croydon Buddhist centre. Over the years, I have lived and worked in an educational community, Monkton Wyld court in Dorset and studied and practiced many forms of meditation including mindfulness, friends of the western Buddhist order and Thai forest. Being in the moment is the core principle of all practices and I enjoy chanting the Yoga sutras of Patanjali in Sanskrit.
My yoga and meditation sessions are suitable for all ages including beginners. Do contact me to discuss any queries you might have including medical conditions.
The Wednesday session gives practical mindfulness techniques to use in our daily lives. Cost £4 (£3 for U3A members) or included in your monthly subscription.
