This taster class is suitable for complete beginners and for those who have ever been curious about yoga.
It is for anyone who is looking to relieve stress, increase energy, stretch and strengthen muscles, become more relaxed and balanced mentally and physically and deepen their understanding of yoga postures (asana) in a steady, progressive and accessible manner.
The yoga classes are a more traditional Hatha style with a focus on proper body alignment, breath connection and mindfulness. A typical class will focus on a specific category of poses e.g. hip openers or spine stretching and strengthening. The course will also break apart and teach the classical warm up sequence of Surya Namaskar (Sun Salutations).
If you are curious about yoga, this is your perfect opportunity to join us in a friendly and supportive environment; you might even surprise yourself at how quickly you progress and how your strength, flexibility and confidence improve each week.
Wednesday 12th October 18:00-19:00 (see timetable for dates)
Classes are held at St Barnabas Church in the downstairs hall, free parking is available directly outside.

“Well that’s my 6 weeks of yoga with Karen Marsh completed and I have found something enjoyable, calming but still challenging. I may not have the balance of a mountain goat but it’s definitely improving and I’ve learnt to slow down, breathe and allow myself to be calm and controlled. Really hope that there will be some more classes as this has been remarkable.”
“I love it and I’ve already signed up for the next block!!
