yoga classes

Choose a class at the level of experience, pace and teaching style that suits you:

starting yoga:  learn the fundamental principles to ensure you strengthen & improve suppleness without strain. A grounding in the basics of Yoga, including aspects of pranayama (the breath work)  and asanas  (the postures). Gain a deeper understanding of your energy - physical, mental and emotional, and how you spend and recharge it.

enjoying yoga:  Reinforcing the basics, plus the next steps in developing your postures and technique. Beginners or those with experience.

enjoying yoga - advanced: A deeper practice - an hour and a half class for teachers and experienced yoga practitioners.

core strength class: draws on both yoga and pilates, and teaches the fundamentals for both. Techniques to help you tone your abdominal muscles and strengthen your back.

gentle yoga: a gentle class with variations suitable for all levels. Gentle yoga can bring, gently and steadily, positive change and benefit to our mind and bodies. Suitable for pregancy. See gentle yoga

chair yoga: a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting on a chair, or standing using a chair for support. Most yoga postures, breathing techniques, meditation, and relaxation techniques can be done from a chair rather than a mat on the floor. Anyone can benefit, but it can be particularly valuable for those who:
 Are recovering from an injury
 Suffer from any disabilities that may limit your mobility
 Work all day at computers, to help release muscular pain, tension and stress.
See chair yoga. A class can be arranged on request.

new power yoga class: An active class designed for people to harness and channel their energy - a perfect start to your day. 
The aim is to leave feeling energised, stretched and stronger, with increased focus, balance and a sense of calm.
Whether you are new to yoga or a more experienced yogi this class will cater for you, allowing you to vary your postures according to your needs.  Kate’s passion (and talent we think!) is to make yoga accessible to anyone and everyone, regardless of age or physical ability

dynamic yoga: An active, energising yoga class on Friday evenings . Wind down from the week quickly and efficiently, to start the weekend chilled and vibrant. If you would like to come for 6:45pm, there is the option of a warm up/ introduction.

injury or back pain?

Both yoga and pilates can be helpful in recovering from injury or easing a chronic condition such as back pain. Be sure to speak to your teacher, so that she can allow for your condition. Don't expect miracles, but care and persistence usually produces results. We believe in a holistic approach to your health, and work closely with medical practitioners and therapists where necessary.

Maya's classes and workshops range from Gentle Yoga to Core Strength.  Maya embraces the many styles of Yoga in her teaching. Her classes are varied, insightful and will help you to discover the ‘effortless effort’ so valuable with your practice. Discover all that you never knew that your body could do. Maya has reverted to her maiden name and is now using Khatun as her second name. Photo

Colin teaches an advanced class with attention to the quality of the breath within the postures.  His distinctive style will ensure you deepen your understanding of yoga in general and also the subtleties of gently working your socks off!

Karin teaches gentle vinyasa flow classes that use breath with movement to help improve student’s concentration and flexibility, strengthen their body, reduce stress and achieve a sense of balance.  She also teaches chair yoga and can also provide 1-2-1 yoga therapy tuition for those with specific health problems. Photo

Gaia brings to her classes an abundance of energy and enthusiasm, which is wonderfully infectious. Her classes are fun and full of joy, and through thoughtful modifications for each posture, they are geared for both beginner and more advanced practitioners. Photo

Holly's focus is on mindful movement of the body and integration with the breath. Having witnessed, first-hand, the benefits that yoga can bring to both the body and mind she is keen to pass this on to her students to enable them to take the teachings of yoga off the mat and into the world. Photo

Jo specialises in Vinyasa Flow and Pre and Post Natal Yoga. Her classes focus on mindfulness and mental wellbeing whilst integrating the breath with the movement. She hopes to guide her students to nurture a sense of lightness and play in their practice whilst focussing on stability, strength and alignment. Photo

Christina has taught regular, pre & post-natal yoga classes at BoCo for over five years.  Her approach honours the traditional yoga teachings of Krishnamacharya and TKV Desikachar. She is also a CNHC reigstered yoga therapist.Photo

Kate's yoga is based on Ashtanga (a dynamic practice) because she adores the philosophy, but she loves to bring other types of yoga into her practice; hatha, yin and vinyasa flow in particular. Above all her passion is to make yoga accessible to anyone and everyone, regardless of age or physical ability. Photo
