Which Class is Right for Me?
Yoga really does come in many different styles and disciplines and it is this variety that makes yoga so accessible to everyone and yet also daunting. No two teachers are alike and even their interpretation of a particular style of yoga makes their classes unique. Just like a piece of music, we all play the same notes but we put them together in a different order and at a different pace - it is often the pauses and the silence between the notes that make the music unique. And so it is with yoga. And it is this complexity and variety that can overawe people.
Take a look at the details below to help find the class that is right for you - though this may differ day to day, week to week, which of course is why Yoga is such a wonderful practice.
Yoga Flow / Vinyasa Flow
A strong dynamic vinyasa flow based class with modifications for mobile beginners but plenty to challenge an intermediate yogi too. Designed to improve strength and flexibility with a gentle inward focus to improve both physical and mental well being. Prepare to get lost in a flow linking movement with breath that will make your heart sing, working up a heat in the body but with some wonderful stretches to calm and relax too. A perfect balance of energising and soothing.
Slow Flow / Hatha Flow
A slightly more gentle class than Yoga Flow, although we still work to build strength, stamina and flexibility. Classic yoga poses are linked with the breath and the flow is at an easy pace giving time for each posture and modifications. A class perfect for those wanting to gently challenge their bodies but to find a wonderful sense of calm and relaxation.
Conditioning Yoga / Sculpt & Sweat
Not yoga as you may know it. My Conditioning Yoga classes are designed to work alongside your regular training and practice.

Restorative and Yoga Nidra
I love sharing this yoga with people attending my retreats. This slows things right down relaxing the body and soothing the nervous system. Using props such as bolsters, blankets, pillows and blocks, the body is supported while holding gentle opening poses for a little while longer than in a normal class. Finishing with Yoga Nidra, or Yoga Sleep we enter a state of consciousness between waking and sleeping, induced by a guided meditation. A complete release and relaxation for your mind and body.
