The benefits of private yoga classes
Yoga is complete science of life which originated in India many thousands of years ago. It is the oldest known system of personal development and encompasses body, mind and spirit.
Many people are first drawn to yoga as a way to keep their body fit, strong and supple and help relax their mind. With regular practice you notice subtle changes in your approach to, and experience of, life. Using yoga postures to increase body awareness allows the mind to be still and develops a profound sense of inner peace.
Because yoga is a personal journey, to really enjoy your practice it’s important that you feel totally comfortable with your teacher. Working 1-to-1, or in a small group, allows the teacher to personalise the class to your specific needs.

The term Hatha yoga encompasses most of the physical practices of yoga, so many popular styles are simply different ways of practising Hatha yoga. Using postures and breathing techniques you will stretch, unwind, relax and release mental stress and physical tension, thereby strengthening and rebalancing your body, mind and spirit. In the West we generally interpret Hatha yoga as a gentle, relaxing approach, which makes it suitable for everyone.
Kundalini Yoga involves simple techniques that everyone can enjoy regardless of ability, including breathing, postures, sound, chanting and meditation, to help you experience your highest consciousness through the raising of your Kundalini (the flow of energy and awareness that exists within each of us). It is a powerful and effective system of self-transformation and personal development which draws from all yogic systems and methods.
B.K.S. Iyengar is considered one of the world’s foremost yoga teachers and his method is now the most widely practised in the world. Iyengar yoga strongly emphasises alignment, precision and safety to develop your strength, flexibility, concentration and self-awareness. Your teacher may use props such as ropes, straps and blocks to help you practise the postures more safely, effectively and to the best of your ability.
Founded by Zhander Remete after years of research into the roots of hatha yoga, Shadow yoga uses fixed forms (preludes) to release obstructions in the body, thereby preparing you for different levels of asana (poses). The Shadow yoga approach emphasises breath and inner work and focuses on awakening the core of the body and the self, helping you to feel alive and firm on the inside while remaining soft and responsive on the outside.
Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga
Interpreted from ancient manuscripts by Sri K. Pattabhi Jois, Ashtanga (sometimes written Astanga) Vinyasa yoga is a dynamic, physically demanding method of Hatha yoga using vinyasa (literally “movement-breathing system”) to link progressive series of postures. You begin with the Primary Series which detoxifies and aligns the body, building strength, stamina and flexibility. The result is improved circulation, a light strong body and a calm mind.
Vinyasa Flow/Power Yoga
Derived from Ashtanga Vinyasa yoga, these two styles share many similarities, particularly the practice of sun salutations and the synchronisation of movement with breathing. Vinyasa flow and power yoga do not stick to the traditional ashtanga series and can have a dance like quality. These are powerful and energetic methods where students move fluidly from one pose to the next, incorporating strength, flexibility, cardio and balance.
Restorative yoga uses props such as bolsters, pillows and straps to support and relax the body, allowing the breathing to ease, the mind to find stillness, and the whole self to become more balanced and restored. Yin yoga comes from the Taoist tradition and focuses on postures practised passively to target the connective tissue in the hips, pelvis and lower spine, thereby increasing flexibility and encouraging a feeling of release.
Founded by John Friend in 1997, Anusara means "flowing with grace" and "to step into the currents of the heart". This heart-oriented method is spiritually inspiring yet grounded in a deep knowledge of outer and inner body alignment. Anusara yoga looks for the good in all people and things so, regardless of experience and ability level, you are encouraged to work according to your own talents, differences and limitations.
Antenatal yoga prepares your body for labour and birth, helping you to maintain fitness and strength, to release physical and emotional tension, and to prevent and resolve common problems. Postnatal yoga repairs and strengthens your body after birth and helps you to relax physically and mentally. You may practise with your baby using techniques to enjoy together, or on your own, allowing you valuable time to nourish and look after yourself.
Meditation is the practice of concentrated focus in order to increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth. Ultimately the mind finds the stillness which allows awareness only of the here and now. There are numerous methods of practising meditation including guided visualisation, focusing on a mantra or the breath, or simply sitting quietly and still.
Yoga is a wonderful tool to improve children’s co-ordination, confidence and self-esteem as they stretch and strengthen their bodies and imaginations. We teach younger children using stories, games and animal shapes so they learn to relax, concentrate and be gentle in a fun environment. Older kids progress towards more traditional techniques to learn the basic principles of what they are doing and why yoga is so healthy for them.
Yoga Therapy/Remedial Yoga
The concept of using yoga remedially was developed formally in the 1980s as the result of a study conducted by Dr. Dean Ornish. Yoga therapists use postures, breathing exercises and meditation to improve mental and physical health in general, as well as more specifically to help heal a wide range of physical conditions, for example back pain, digestive problems and fatigue, or psycho-emotional issues such as stress, anxiety, insomnia and depression.
