Basics

New to yoga or returning to it after a break? Then this is the class for you. Our Basics class will ease you into practice gently and ideal for ironing out aches and pains if time is limited. We start from the very beginning, and encourage our students to build a confident and steady practice.

Suitable for beginners

There’s no need to be super flexible or strong at this stage – our yoga classes are designed to guide you through a range of postures with correction and good understanding. Our students find that with greater strength and flexibility the whole body functions more efficiently, alleviating general aches and pains.

Reduce stress

Our classes also focus on Yoga breathing exercises called pranayama. These help to reduce stress and tension, and to relax your central nervous system, enabling you to cope better with life’s challenges by developing new energy.

Yoga for athletes

For those of you who are keen athletes, yoga is a good balancing tool. It not only elongates shortened and fatiqued muscles, it is also an excellent way to gain mental focus and to prevent or recover from injury.

Monday evening 19:30

Introducing My Yoga Tutor

Find out more

I started yoga with the aim of learning focus and relaxation. In the year that's since passed I've gained this and so much more – I feel more confident in myself and am beginning to understand more about my body.
Leo's so good at explaining everything – and so open and friendly too – that I no longer feel like that girl who needs to retreat to the back of the class to hide her failings. Even on a bad day I'll leave class feeling like someone's hit the reset button and whatever it was that was worrying me has somehow been put into perspective by the time spent focussing on the poses.
This is the first time in my life that regular exercise has been a pleasure, rather than something I feel I have to do. Thank you for being so welcoming.
