Class Types

A word about levels:

All classes are open to all levels. You are more than welcome to join whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned practitioner.

My Yoga Place is a non-competitive, judgement-free space where we encourage you to make the most of the classes whatever your current experience and fitness level. We are there to help you explore how you can best express each posture in a way that supports your intention in practising yoga.

Yoga for Wellbeing

These Hatha Yoga classes incorporate a mixture of warm-up poses, breath work, sun salutations, stretches, balances and static postures.

I strongly believe a regular Yoga practice should support sustainable wellbeing and this is the guiding principle behind my classes.

The sessions are energising and lively, ending with a peaceful relaxation.

Vinyasa Flow

In Vinyasa Flow you will be guided from asana to asana in a dynamic sequence focusing on the breath.

There are many variations in the postures and the practice can be slow or fast and the continuous movement will get your heart going and your body temperature rising in sequences designed to improve your strength and flexibility.​

Slow Flow

This is a slower-paced flow with gentler versions of sun salutations and postures.

You will still challenge yourself but slowly, with lots of time to warm up, and adaptations to suit your own body and pace.

Restorative Yoga

Gently stretch your body through gentle movement and passive stretching supported with props to completely support your joints.

A calm, meditative practice that ends with a guided relaxation.

Yin Yoga

In this class, we practice deep stretches held for longer periods of time to increase flexibility and mobility.

Postures are usually held for 3-5 minutes and we often use props. 

Adaptive Yoga

We also offer adaptive yoga for this with physical and/or mental conditions. You can find more information about these classes at www.yogable.org.

Buddhist Meditation Group

These are group meditation sessions and draw from the Soto Zen  Buddhist tradition. We will read passages from Buddhist texts and practice Zazen, sitting for 25 minutes as still as possible, facing a wall with knees on the ground or in a chair, eyes open, and back straight.

They are not guided meditation sessions nor are they intended as meditation lessons. Some guidance can be happily offered.  No experience is required, although some might find a 25-minute period of silent meditation challenging.
