About our classes

 

 

Hatha Yoga
Teacher- Sarah
Monday's 7.30pm- 8.45pm
Tuesday's 7.30pm-8.45pm
Thursday's 10.30am-11.45am

Yoga classes are these days many and varied, in my classes there is always an opportunity at the start of the class to do some joint release work, there’s a focus on connecting breath with movement, a chance to develop awareness to what it is your body needs from the practice, so that you are not so reliant on your teacher and can adapt what you learn in class to suit you at home on your mat or in your life outside of class. I like to hear what is going on for my students physically, mentally and emotionally and I will always try and find a way to cater for that in my class planning. 

 

I am passionate about finding balance in life and in my own practice and have found that the best yoga practice for me simply combines movement and breath, an equal amount of time spent centring at the start of the class as you arrive and at times during a class to take a breath and after class to relax and rest. My classes reflect this, we never rush straight into a practice we take our time building up to movement connecting with our breath and then take our time coming back down onto our mats for rest and relaxation where there can be an opportunity to allow the effects of the practice to settle in the body.

 

 

 

 

 
Beginners Yoga Class
Teacher- Sarah
Tuesday's 6.00pm- 7.15pm

This class  is for those who have little or no yoga experience. During the class you will work within a group where there will be a focus on developing a yoga practice with what is available for your body at this time, a yoga practice that works best for you depending on your needs. We will look at some of the foundational yoga postures in more detail, with a focus on connecting breath with movement. There will be an opportunity to practice breathing exercises and start if you don’t already have a meditation practice. During the course there will be an opportunity to ask questions if anything comes up for you or doesn’t make sense, we will check in at the start of every class so that you feel supported. You will be encouraged to integrate some of what you learn into your daily life, that will not only support your own yoga practice but also support you in your daily life. 

It is always a privilege to work with beginners, if you would like any further information please don’t hesitate to get in touch, you can email me at ypwstudio@hotmail.com

 
Monthly Friday Restorative Yoga Class
 Teacher- Sarah
 
One Friday a month.
7.30pm - 8.45pm

I am keen to share this monthly restorative yoga practice with you, A practice that is accessible, in that its not just for able more typical yoga bodies but it is suitable for anyone, yogi or not who needs some time out to rest, relax and restore. 

The ideal length of time to rest in Shavasana is 20 minutes; Shavasana is a posture that yogis mostly rest in at the end of a class. In class we often don’t get as long as that to rest. This monthly class offers you the chance to do just that spend longer in certain postures like Shavasana allowing you to as a result experience the many positive benefits for your wellbeing of resting and relaxing. 

We use blocks, blankets, eye pillows and bolsters in a warm safe environment. It truly is a very restorative practice; there is some movement but only movement that encourages a gentle release in the body, in any areas where you may perhaps feel some tightness and or tension. Wear warm comfortable clothing and get ready to take some time out for yourself resting unwinding recharging and relaxing on your mat.
