BEGINNERS / INTERMEDIATE CLASS -
8:30 - 9:30 Rise and Shine class
9:45 - 11:15 hatha yoga class
What to expect...
Thess friendly classes are ideal for people new to yoga, through to those with years of experience. The over-riding aim of each class is to ensure you leave feeling better than you arrived !
Each class has a different theme, and Kate is always happy to address specific ideas from students such as yoga for easing tight shoulders, or yoga to ease stress.
Classes begin with a short centreing exercise, before moving onto the postures. Alternative options are provided for students who wish to practice more gently. Class always concludes with a relaxation session. The relaxation techniques change regularly so there is bound to be something to suit you, even if you find it very difficult to relax. Each class will include postures (asana), breathing practices, pranayama, meditation and relaxation.

"I love my Yoga class. I feel so calm but invigorated after, and am so disappointed if I have to miss a week. I could go to a class nearer home, but none could equal Kate's kind and gentle instruction."
