£10 PER FORTNIGHT - PER HOUSEHOLD - UNLIMITED CLASSES
With uncertainty hanging over us it is more important than ever that we try and stay fit and healthy, both mentally and physically. With an increasing number of us going into self-isolation it is essential we try and create a sense of community and stay well. With this in mind I am offering an online programme so we can continue with our yoga practice together.
If you would like to more information or if you would like to book please getting touch and I will send you the live link.
5:30pm - Beginners Flow - 60 mins*
A flowing sequence of yoga postures to develop stamina, strength, circulation, enhanced self-awareness and improved range of motion, alongside an introduction to breathing and meditation practice. A mixed ability class, which is suitable to beginners or those who enjoy a slower, flowing class.
6:45pm - Workout Flow - 60 mins*
This will be a fast paced yoga class to get the heart rate pumping, challenge you physically and get you flowing on the mat. If you enjoy the regular yoga classes but would like to try something a bit more challenging then give this class a go.
8:00pm - Yoga for Runners and Cyclists - 60 mins*
This class will stretch the hamstrings, hip flexors and calves but also the stabilising muscles of the outer hip and thigh, including the often troublesome iliotibial (IT) band. We will also do poses which will keep the muscles around the joints strong and aligned which in turn protects the joints and helps keep the body injury free.
* These classes will be online live from St Wilfrid’s Community Centre.
6:00pm - General Yoga - 45 mins
A more accessible style of Yoga, suitable for complete beginners to yoga or those who want a slower pace to their practice. The class is still based on a sequence but with less dynamic/challenging poses. The class opens and closes with a calming breathing practice sandwiched around a variety of gentle moves to strengthen and stretch the body.
6:00pm - General Yoga - 45 mins
10:00am - Morning Flow - 45 mins
A flowing sequence of yoga postures including several rounds of sun salutations to open up the body ready for the day ahead. This class will help develop stamina, strength, circulation and balance as well as introducing breathing and meditation techniques.
Thursday 24th September
7:00pm - Yin Yoga - 45 mins. Please bring a myofascial ball (a tennis ball will be fine)!
Yin yoga asks for surrender in gentle yet intensive poses to develop circulation & elasticity in parts of the body that lie closest to the core. Poses are held for a few minutes, which is slow but by no means ‘easy’. Yin yoga works with the Chinese meridians to increase and improve the flow of energy through the body.
Yin yoga will:
- Work deep into the connective tissue helping injury prevention.
- Improve blood & energy flow for organ & joint health.
- Help bring about mindfulness.
- Restore your energy & calm your nervous system.
- Ideal for sportspeople.
Props are an essential part of most yin classes. If you have blocks (2) please bring them to the class, if not please improvise an alternative. You will also need a bolster (or well stuffed cushion), a blanket and a strap (a scarf, tie or similar will do fine).

I am offering a fortnightly subscription for £10 per household (so the whole family can join in if you want).
This will give you unlimited access to all classes.
Attend as many classes as you can or try out new ones, a regular practice is one of the best gifts you can give yourself and you’ll really notice a positive difference.
RECORDINGS - NEVER MISS A CLASS!
If you would like to attend a class but cannot make it please let me know in advance and I will record the session so you can complete the class at a time that suits you. These will be available via a private link on YouTube.
I can also offer 1-2-1 sessions via Zoom = £30 (45 minutes) or in my garden = £35 (60 minutes)
If you have any questions/comments please send them, here are some I’ve already had:
Will we all be able to see each other?
You will mainly see me as the ‘host’ on the screen, there is also a small strip along the top or side of the screen where each person attending is shown. You do have the option to ‘hide’ yourself if you wish and just your name will be shown.
Will we hear each other?
I have the controls being the ‘host’. I shall set the audio so that for the 10 minutes before class we can chat, then once we start I will probably ‘mute’ everyone so that only my speaker is on, just in case your dog barks, your phone rings, kids come running in or you break wind - no one else will hear!
Do I need technical experience?
Not really, but you do need to be able to get onto the internet and ideally with a screen camera (most computers have these inbuilt) so that I can see you, otherwise you’ll be able to see me but I won’t see you.
