Students are warm, friendly, welcoming and enjoy seeing each other improving.


The atmosphere is calm, focused and very relaxing, described as "like coming home".


Some groups like to chat and laugh, others prefer silence.

Classes to suit different levels and abilities

Are you a Beginner? Advanced? Intermediate? Don't know yet?

I have classes for different levels an abilities so that beginners are kept safe while advanced students can reach and enjoy their full potential.  Novices can start in an easy group and progress through to advanced.

Strong, supple and experienced students and other Yoga teachers often choose one of my advanced groups.

Advanced does not necessarily mean supple or strong but relates to, for example, knowing the difference between a breathing practice and pranayama, and, some experience of taking bandhas (locks) in the poses.  If you are not sure which level you would enjoy most just give me a call.

Payment Options

You are warmly invited to one free session


A generous reduction is offered for payment made termly in advance if paid by the date given, averaging out at around £9.50 per session.

The pay-as-you-go fee per session is around £17 and can only be offered in groups that are not yet full.

Paying termly gives you the option of making up for any sessions missed in one of the other classes that are not full (apart from the Horseriders).


Proportionate concessions are made for anyone new joining after the start of their first term.

I am happy to negotiate an adjustment to the fees, or, at my discretion, a refund if you are unable to attend as a result of, for instance, a hospital admission.  

Payment methods:  bank transfer is preferred by far best but cheques and cash can be used.


Although some of the classes are full sometimes students are willing to swap into a different group to make space for newcomers.

What to wear and what to bring

Lycra or Loose? Whichever you prefer.

Best clothing for Yoga is either loose-fitting or very stretchy with bare feet but please wear what you feel comfortable in, as long as you can stretch fully and easily.

You will need a mat and a light blanket to cover up with during relaxation.  You may wish to bring a block or cushions and one or two ties or non-stretchy belts or similar.  I am happy to advise on the best mats and can sometimes bulk-buy blocks to pass on to you at a reduced price.
