Yoga Classes

Yoga can help to build strength and flexibility in the body, helping to create a greater sense of wellbeing.

What is yoga?

The word ‘yoga’ means union and refers to the spiritual union between the mind and body. By controlling the breath and holding the body in steady poses a harmony within the body is created. By linking breath with movement yoga can help to strengthen the mind-body connection. We offer a number of different yoga classes, all of mixed abilities (unless noted otherwise) and at different times to suit all needs.

Benefits of Yoga

There are many benefits to taking up yoga and I encourage all of my clients to work at a level which is suitable for them. Benefits of yoga can include:

  • Yoga improves strength, flexibility and balance.
  • Yoga can help to ease symptoms of back pain and arthritis.
  • Yoga relaxes you and helps you to sleep better.
  • Yoga can help you to manage stress.
  • Helps to bring an overall sense of wellbeing to the mind.

Our Yoga Class Types

Hatha Yoga

Hatha Yoga: is a class that combines yoga postures, pranayama exercises, meditation and relaxation. The practice will help you to develop strength and flexibility within the body whilst also improving mental relaxation. Hatha classes are provide a balanced combination of sustained poses with attention to alignment and therapeutic benefits.

Yin Yoga

Yin Yoga: is a slow-paced style of yoga that consists of a series of long-held, passive floor poses that mainly work the lower part of the body. An asana can be held for up to 5 minutes sometimes even longer. Yin yoga can deepen the flexibility and elasticity of your connective tissues and bring more mobility and lubrication to stiff joints. It can help to release stored emotions that are held within the body which can help to relieve stress and anxiety. 

Slow Flow Yoga

Slow Flow Yoga: is a combination of hatha, vinyasa and somatics yoga combined. A fluid practice that invites you to connect with what you’re feeling and moving in a way that is in harmony with your body.

Hatha Flow

Hatha Flow: is a class that combines both hatha yoga and vinyasa yoga.

Pregnancy Yoga

Pregnancy Yoga:  This class is for expectant mums once they have entered the second trimester. In the class you will practice yoga poses, pranayama exercises and learn some exercises to help you with childbirth.

Vinyasa Yoga

Vinyasa Yoga: is a class where yoga poses flow from one yoga pose to another. It’s a fluid practice that moves with the breath. 

If you are just considering starting to practice yoga we wanted to share some commonly asked questions with you.

Student Testimonials

All of our classes offer a warm and friendly welcome, but don’t just take our word for it, here is what some of our clients have to say.

Ingrid W

Yoga client Bexley

I have been going to Emma’s classes for over a year at my gym. I’ve had a few different yoga teachers but there is something very special about the way Emma teaches. From the atmosphere in the room, to the music she plays and the non-judgemental, encouraging language she uses. I can see improvements in my yogic ability but more than that i feel very grounded and centred after doing Emma’s classes and I always feel that I have done something really good for my mind body and spirit after being there. I always look forward to and am grateful for her guidance .
