Classes are often themed, allowing students to move energy around the body to gain strength, flexibility and stability physically, emotionally and mentally as well as learning how to apply yogic concepts to life outside the yoga space.

This practice will give you the opportunity to flow through a mindful asana practice. Using Pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation to focus the minds awareness. We finish with a blissful relaxation giving you an enhanced sense of wellbeing.

A fantastic combination of both Yoga and Pilates. Pilates will improve posture, work deeply into your centre as well as mobilising your hips, shoulders and back. Yoga will improve flexibility, strengthen your whole body, and balance body, mind and spirit.
GENTLE VINYASA FLOW
A medium paced class that is tied intrinsically to the breath. This class explores the connection of the mind and body to breathing techniques. You will flow through the asanas (postures) finding alignment in body, and calmness in soul.
Your practise will end with a relaxing Savasana (corpse pose) as your mind, body, soul connect.
PILATES FOR ALL
This class is suitable for all levels. It’s low impact and we focus on strengthening postural muscles that support and stabilize the spine. It can help to improve posture and control back pain. Regular practice will build endurance and you will notice a difference within your body. As well as mat we also use small equipment.
MINDFUL MOVEMENT AND MEDITATION
Gentle Yoga: a slow flow of mindful movement and somatics to soothe the nervous system, release tension and promote restful sleep. All abilities welcome.
Join Sam every Thursday, bar the first Thursday of the month, for an exploration into meditation. We will learn how to meditate using different techniques and intentions. We’ll consider the effects on the brain and the benefits for the mind, in particular psychological and emotional well-being. We will seek to overcome hindrances with the intention of establishing a regular self practice that nourishes the mind and soul.
Yoga Nidra deeply relaxes your body whilst feeling like you have fallen asleep but still being fully aware of what is happening around you. “Yoga” is to bring consciousness and awareness to all parts of your life making it whole. “Nidra” means sleep.
My vinyasa flow class is suited for beginners to intermediate. I like to keep my vinyasa playful and relaxed and give options to challenge yourself if you want to take it up a level. We start with a breath awareness exercise where we work on the foundations of the practice using mindfulness and grounding techniques followed by a gentle warm up leading into a flow sequence and ending with relaxation. I aim for my students to leave energised but with a calm and clear mind.
In Hatha we aim to find balance in body, mind and spirit. I will guide you through various yoga asanas (postures) to stretch, strengthen and mobilise the whole body, focusing on correct alignment and offering options that work for you. We will ride the wave of our breath throughout class, ground ourselves in meditation and wrap up with a restorative relaxation.
MINDFUL YOGA FLOW
