Yoga does not ask you to be more than you are.   But it does ask you to be all that you are.


- Bryan Kest




Beginner's Flow

This class is perfect for both those first starting out, and those simply wanting to take things a little slower, and consolidate their practice.  New, returning and experienced yogis all very welcome!  The class will take you through a grounding flow, breaking down each pose to emphasise safe and strong alignment.  Before class you will receive a document detailing some of the poses that we may meet in case that might be of use.

A slower-paced, mindful sequence of simple poses with the guidance you need to master the basics and start to synchronise your breath with movement.   An encouraging, safe space to build confidence, increase competence and give yoga a go.


Vinyasa Flow

This is a more dynamic practice formed from an energetic sequence of poses, flowing from one to the next, to create a rhythmic vinyasa as breath and body move together.   This class is designed to increase the heart rate, create heat within the body, and build strength, flexibility and balance.

The poses are simple and easily adapted, making the class suitable for all levels.  Variations to poses will be given, allowing you to decide what level of challenge your body needs.   Expect encouragement to move with and towards resistance, whilst keeping awareness of your physical limits.   Both the newer yogi, and the more experienced are welcome!

"I am really enjoying Emma’s Vinyasa Flow.   After many years of learning yoga, these energetic and deep sessions are giving me new perspective and helping me to return to the essentials I had left behind.   The flow is my current place for exploration and it is a rich and enjoyable path.”
