With over 25 yoga classes per week, we have a wide range of classes and styles available for you. If you are new to us, have a look at our New to us? section too
When you look at the timetable, clicking on a teacher’s name will give you a quick profile of that teacher. By clicking on the class name you will see a short description of the class too so you know exactly what you are signing up for!
This is the styles of yoga that we offer:
Yoga / Hatha Yoga – this is what we think of as traditional Hatha Yoga often referred to as the basis for all types of Yoga. It is great for beginners as well as the experienced.
Gentle Yoga – exactly what it says, an opportunity to restore your body and mind. A gentle slower class.
Vinyasa flow – this is a more dynamic yoga where one pose flows into another and requires a bit more stamina as a result.
Power yoga – the strongest yoga that we offer, suitable for those who have done Yoga before and have the stamina, it will have you working up a sweat!
Kundalini Yoga – each class consists of exercises, mantras, meditation, music, breathing, philosophy and relaxation.
Yoga is not only for people who can say “om” loudly and/or can touch their toes! Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing.
Benefits of Yoga
You will spend time on the mat working every major muscle group in your body through a process of stretching and lengthening those muscles, calming your nervous system and relaxing your mind. This unique blend of physicality and stillness of the mind is the magic that is yoga.
Scientific studies suggest that yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance. There’s some evidence that regular yoga practice is beneficial for people with high blood pressure, heart disease, aches and pains – including lower back pain – depression and stress.
Yoga is also a perfect addition to a more rigorous training programme, allowing the body to stretch well and gain strength between more cardio-based exercise sessions.
And finally, you should leave every yoga class with a smile on your face!

We like to think of this as normal but just in case you want a reminder….
Please be punctual – it is really helpful if everyone is on time for the class. If you are however late (aren’t we all sometimes?!) please find your spot and settle yourself quickly.
Please turn off your electronics when you come into your class. Not least as this is your moment and most things can wait for an hour…
If you are prone to a bit of perspiration please ask for a towel at reception or bring your own.
It is traditional at the end of a yoga class for the teacher to say namaste to the class and for the class to respond with the same. It essentially means “thank you”.
It helps to tidy up your mat and any props or equipment you have used at the end of each class.
