Dear yoga students, and students of other movement classes,

The classes that have fully restarted so far are Restore to Recharge on Mondays, and Yoga for Life (new class) on Thursdays. Tot Yoga, Pregnancy Yoga and Baby Yoga have stopped for the summer and will resume on Thursday 9 September. We are working with our practitioners to restart other classes in person. Meanwhile Zoom classes are still on.

To join an online class you need to be given a link by email.

If you are interested, send an email to the teachers individually and they can then add you to their database for Zoom classes.

What kind of Yoga?

In our general Yoga classes and courses we teach dynamic flow sequences harmonising breath and movement which build strength, vitality and fluidity. This is balanced by a quiet yin style yoga practice which cultivates relaxation and stillness. We limit class size to optimise personal attention. In a yoga class you will learn about the core movement principles that underpin the practice of yoga and experience how these develop strength in the body. For other kinds of Yoga classes see Restorative Yoga, Yoga Nidra, Pregnancy Yoga, Baby Yoga and Yoga for Chronic Fatigue, Exhaustion & Insomnia.

One-to-One Tuition

One-to-one tuition is an opportunity to explore yoga in more depth where we can help you tailor your practice to your own needs, either to accommodate an injury or health issue or help develop your own personal yoga or movement practice. 1 hour session costs £48.
