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. The practice originated in India approximately 5,000 years ago.

Yoga is inclusive, whether you are looking for a gentle hatha practice or are looking to be challenged in a power yoga class, our classes are suitable for all levels. We have expert teachers who can adapt and guide throughout so you will leave feeling relaxed, recharged, and energised. Each instructor has their own unique individual teaching approach. Classes can vary in duration but typically last between 60 and 90 minutes. We encourage you try them all to find what works best and is most enjoyable for you.
We also offer seated yoga and gentle yoga classes, perfect for those with limited mobility, those recovering from an injury or surgery or for who just want a slightly slower paced class. Yoga is a safe and effective way to increase physical activity, especially strength, flexibility and balance. It is also recommended for older adults at risk of falls, to help improve balance and co-ordination. Regular yoga practice is proven to be beneficial for people with high blood pressure, aches and pains – including lower back pain, along with depression and stress. Yoga is often prescribed by the NHS for these exact reasons.
