My philosophy is you don't need to be bendy to do yoga! In fact, quite the opposite, it's the stiff and creaky among us who stand to benefit the most. I strongly believe that yoga should be for everyone, of all ages and all levels of fitness. I teach in a gentle hatha style that is ideal for beginners, sports people with tight muscles, and older students, as well as more experienced students seeking a deeper practice.

Cost Drop in £10, but I offer a 'pass' which works out at around £8 per class, bookable in advance. If you are interested in one-to-one, or small group teaching, please get in touch, especially if you have health issues. Email [email protected] or call 0771 520 7784

It is made up of two Sanskrit words: prana meaning life force; and ayama, to restrain or control the prana, implying a set of breathing techniques where the breath is intentionally altered in order to produce specific results.
