Yoga classes to suit anyone and everyone
Please read the class information below to find the class most suitable for your level and expertise.
In Motion Flow
This flow class is suitable if you have previously practiced yoga.
The sequence of postures are a mix of dynamic and static movement, increasing stability and strength whilst working into range of motion. The classes are not “power vinyasa” based but rather guide you through a sequence with a connection to feeling and breathing into your body. They provide an opportunity to open and experience the posture and yourself in that moment in time. Alignments of postures are verbalised with adjustments where required. Balance your mind, body and breath.
Go Slow Flow
This class is suitable for beginners or those returning to yoga.
This class is a gentle Vinyasa style flowing yoga class. Vinyasa classes link movement with breath helping you to increase stability, strength and flexibility through a mix of dynamic and static movements. All classes include meditation and relaxation so you will leave feeling rejuvenated and relaxed.
The classes are suitable for beginners and experienced practitioners alike.
Our Yin Yoga classes are slow-paced and are about finding stillness, they are a calming style of yoga. Poses are held for longer periods of time with a focus on floor-based postures. Yin targets the connective tissues (ligaments, tendons and fascia) to help improve flexibility and create the feeling of space and freedom in your body.
Foundation/Beginners In Motion
We will be exploring the basic foundations and principles of yoga with particular attention on alignment. These classes may offer a workshop style with hands on adjustments so you can feel what works for your body in the basic postures and develop a greater understanding of the way to develop your practice in a safe environment. The main objective is for you to feel comfortable and familiar enough to join one of our other classes and enjoy the ongoing benefits of a regular practice.
This class is also great for those who’ve been practicing but may need to reassess their alignments again in poses and work around collapsing into poses and re-assess current positions in poses.
A yoga class described as ‘Hatha’ will typically involve a set of physical postures and breath techniques, practised more slowly and with more static posture holds than a Vinyasa flow or Ashtanga class.

Meditation In Motion
Meditation is a natural state of consciousness that isn’t learned, any more than you learn to sleep. When the mind becomes one-pointed and steady, it will naturally go beyond the normal mundane awareness into the state referred to as meditation.
Nature of the Mind
The mind naturally tends to jump and move about constantly. Ancient yogic scriptures noted that it can seem more difficult to control the mind than it is to control the wind. Yogis have therefore developed a whole range of practical aids and techniques that will help you in your attempts at meditation.

Bolster & Stretch Flow
A yoga class starting on bolsters, time for Pranayama, opening the chest and stretches on the bolster, before leading into a flow class.
Ashtanga (MYSORE STYLE = SELF-PRACTICE)
These classes are not instructed/led classes. You do your own practice moving through the practice with your breath as the focus.
Ashtanga yoga is a traditional set of sequenced postures which was taught to the western world by Sri Krishna Pattabhi Jois since 1927. Since Pattabhi’s passing, Sharath Rangaswamy and Saraswathi now teach the sequence in Mysore India continuing the ashtanga lineage and tradition. The practice flows from one posture to another in a vinyasa (dynamic) style incorporating flexibility, strength & corrective yoga strategies. It generates heat and energy within the body allowing the student to progressively deepen their practice whilst developing self observation and cultivating a non-judgemental attitude.
This practice focuses on the breath, which is the central technique by which the mind is observed and controlled. The sequence has 6 stages, the first aims to realign the body anatomically. Ashtanga is practiced traditionally as a mysore sequence.
Private Sessions or Small Group Bookings
Yoga originated as a one to one/teacher to student system, and this is certainly the best way to start, return or practice continuously under the guidance of Louise. If you prefer the connection of a personal session which can be tailored to your individual requirements or simply prefer the solace of your practice, please book your session.
Private yoga sessions offer expert guidance and individual attention. Louise can develop your personal yoga session for a daily practice, rehabilitation from injury, or just for the pure enjoyment of the practice.
