A gentle introduction to Yoga over the course of 6 weeks.
Whether you are new to yoga or wanting a refresh this course will take you gently through foundational yoga postures, breathwork, mindfulness and meditation. This course will enable you to get comfortable and confident with yoga, helping you to feel at ease when you step into/return to, your first public class.
Term time mixed ability classes - beginners very welcome.
My aim is to guide you through yoga practices that enable you to release the stresses and strains of every day life through movement, breathwork and meditation.
All I ask is that everyone works within their own abilities. Variations and modifications to yoga postures are offered to enable students to do this.
A combination of chair yoga/standing postures, whole body mobility movements and breathwork to help increase mobility, improve breathing capacity, reduce stress & age dynamically as best you can - regardless of age or ability.
If a ‘normal’ floor yoga class is not for you for whatever reason but you still want all the benefits that yoga has to offer – then this is for you.
These restorative classes are the perfect way to wind down. Using a variety of props in restorative yoga, the body is fully supported so that there is no active engagement of the muscles. Instead, they get to gently stretch, soften and release into the comfort of the props.
Restorative yoga promotes deep rest and relaxation. It is the ideal way to recharge your batteries encouraging the mind to quieten, breath to soften & deepen through gentle music, guided meditations & breathwork.

Private yoga classes differ from a group class in that the intention of a group class is set by the Yoga teacher – to provide a class to a wider audience, while taking note of the various health conditions the class will be more generalised. Whereas in a private class they are specific and unique to the student – taking into account health, fitness level, available time and goals - what is it you want to achieve out of your yoga practice.
It might be that you are new to Yoga and want to get familiar with the ‘foundation’ asanas (postures) before heading into a public class. Or perhaps you are more experienced and want to delve deeper into specific areas of yoga both physical and mental.
A private class will start by developing an initial practice based on what you need, want and are willing to do. In consecutive sessions progress is checked and reviewed, making slight changes to the practice if needed. The effectiveness of the practice will be reviewed after its been done consistently for some time.
Private classes are available on a one to one basis, couples or groups. Prices will vary depending upon requirements, please contact me to discuss further.
