Yoga with Rebecca: Gentle Yoga
Jun 22 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

In this Gentle class, we combine slow flow with specific posture work. The class proceeds at a slower pace than the Hatha/Vinyasa class, taking longer over poses and transitions between them. This class is perfect for beginners or if you just feel you want a more gentle experience on the mat. In many ways, a gentler class can be more advanced in that we spend more time really enquiring into the poses, breath and movement.

This is about more than working your body – everything we practice physically in yoga is intimately informed  by an ancient, rich and fascinating  philosophy going back thousands of years  and yet more relevant today than ever. I weave aspects of this philosophy into the teaching of breathing techniques, physical postures, relaxation and meditation. Through my classes, my aim is for you to feel wonderfully stretched, spacious and strengthened, your breathing smooth and regular and with a deep sense of calm and alignment with what matters in life.

I first encountered yoga when I was a stressed 15 year old and my grandmother showed me a sequence of asanas (physical postures) to help focus and calm my mind. I continued to practise on an off, and in the last 10 years began to take it more seriously, establishing a regular practice. In 2014 I took this further by completing a British Wheel Foundation Course in preparation for teacher training on the British Wheel Teaching Diploma. I am now qualified as a Yoga Teacher with the British Wheel of Yoga (accounting for 500 hours of training). Teaching students of all ages and levels of experience has transformed my own relationship to yoga and confirmed this is what I most love doing!

Classic Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan with Steven Kidd
Jun 25 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Classic Yang Style Tai Chi Chuan instructed by Steven Kidd, affiliated with the Lancaster School of Tai Chi Chuan.
Tai Chi Chuan is an ancient Chinese discipline that strives to cultivate the mind and the body through martial training, meditation and exercise.
When practiced regularly, Tai Chi provides extraordinary health benefits, improves balance, flexibility and strength while calming the spirit and reducing stress.

Much of Tai Chi is practiced in a slow, mindful way which provides a good workout without inflicting high impact stress on the body. This makes Tai Chi accessible to everyone, including those recovering from injury or suffering from joint conditions.

 Steven has studied and practiced Tai Chi to a high level under the Master teacher Paul Florkowski, founder of the Lancaster School of Tai Chi Chuan. Steven studied intensively and quickly found a natural flare for this beautiful Martial Art. Steven used his Tai Chi to overcome a Chronic illness and now wishes to share the benefits of Tai Chi to help others achieve a balanced, healthy mind and lifestyle.

Steven will be teaching the Yang Cheng Fu Long Form, Push Hands, Qigong and various Martial Drills and Applications to further the students understanding of the form movements. Initially classes will be two one hour sessions a week with a view to holding more classes of a longer duration as the class expands. If you are interested please contact Steven directly at:

Yoga for Cyclists
Jun 25 @ 7:15 pm – 8:45 pm

There are a few obvious areas specific to cyclists that yoga can truly benefit – hamstrings, abductor muscles, the pelvis and lower back. In these classes we will work through the body so to target these specific areas to keep them flexible and healthy as well as exploring ways to keep the shoulders and neck open and relaxed. My hope is that each class will leave your body feeling deeply stretched and released; a perfect ‘prehab’ before the weekend.

The classes will run at 7.15 – 8.45pm on Monday nights.

I believe that it’s worth coming to weekly classes in order to feel the progression but am also aware that this won’t work for everyone. And so drop-in is also possible.

Cost: 15 week block £100, 10 week block £70; 8 week block £60; 6 week block £45

Drop-in £9

Please let me know if you’d like to book a place or prefer to drop-in.

It is a class in which you can choose to take it relatively easy or work up to stronger challenges, depending on how you feel on the day.

Yoga with Rebecca: Yin & Restorative Yoga
Jun 27 @ 8:00 pm – 9:30 pm

In Yin Yoga we work very close to the mat, holding poses for between 3-5 minutes so to work deep into the connective tissue (Fascia) of the body. Yin tends not to work at a muscular level although sometimes it is beneficial to introduce a little bit of muscle and movement (yang) into a Yin practice. Yin can best be understood as an embodied meditation. We have time to become very intimate with our breath and our mind and through this beautiful practice experience ever-deepening tranquility and release. Sometimes we practice Restorative Yoga using lots of cushions, bolsters, blankets to find full comfort in the posture. In these classes, we give ourselves permission to fully rest and let go, focussing particularly on calming the nervous system.
