I discovered yoga in the early 1990s whilst a student in Edinburgh. I've been practicing regularly ever since and in 2020 I trained as a hatha yoga instructor with Newcastle Yoga School. I am a 200hr accredited yoga teacher registered and insured with Yoga Alliance Professionals. I teach a relaxed style of yoga - this is definitely a no-headstand zone!
5 weeks £30 for the course
Are you interested in trying yoga for the first time? Or returning after a break? Or maybe you’ve tried yoga before, but found it hard to follow? This five-week course will focus on building confidence in key yoga poses and sequences, with adaptations to suit your body. We will also explore some different styles of yoga and delve into a little yoga philosophy. Hopefully, by the end of the course you’ll know your downward dog from your cobra, and will feel confident enough to join a regular class.
Stretch and Relax Yoga
This is a slow and gentle class where we practice a different sequence of postures (asana) each week, mainly seated, kneeling or lying poses. Props including chairs and block are available to help adapt poses for different bodies and to allow for greater relaxation. Every class begins with a short grounding exercise, includes some breathing exercises (pranayama), and ends with relaxation. This class is not advised during pregnancy due to the lying postures.
Invitation to try your first class free and then £7/week drop in or £6/week booked in advance with a flexible 5 class pass.
