Since the outbreak of Covid 19, The Yoga School has moved online. Private live lessons can be arranged by appointment if your health permits. Please join classes online until further notice- in the interest of everyone's wellbeing.
Western Yoga has become very focussed on the Asana (poses) and on the fashion of Poses. The Yoga School offers a more balanced and traditional practice incorporating Pranayama (Life Force Expansion), Meditation and Philosophy of Yoga. For this reason, private lessons are offered at affordable rates to best assist individuals and include tailor-made alignment and postural care. Group classes are kept small to ensure this quality is maintained.
