My classes create space and strength in the body and quieten and focus the mind.

Each week we practise a sequence of asana, pranayama and meditation with a different energetic or philosophical theme.

Come expecting to breathe completely and move mindfully as we balance effort with ease.

I teach authentically from my own practice and experience, weaving together movement sequences and breathing practices designed to support everyday life, at the same time as working towards a deeper level of self awareness, understanding and acceptance.

I love to dance, swim, play tennis and have a go at any movement discipline that comes my way. I have specialist trainings in yoga therapy, vinyasa sequencing, yoga ‘as medicine’,  restorative yoga, Thai yoga massage, yoga for digestive health, one to one adjustments, somantic movement and the Chinese practice of Qigong.

Testimonials

“Caroline is clear in her instructions, encouraging and friendly. Every week has a different theme so there is always something new and different to look forward to. She offers different options for many of the poses so that all ability levels are catered for. After each class, I feel mentally refreshed as though I have had a deep restorative sleep”.

“Your class is such a joy in my week . I think you have a wonderful energy that you bring / lead the class with — great!”

“Caroline’s classes strike a lovely balance between being thoroughly relaxing and calming, as well as energising and enlivening. There is also always a kind and friendly atmosphere. I would highly recommend  them to anyone.”

More about my yoga and my yoga classes…

  • My classes are not just about creating beautiful yoga poses. They are about moving and breathing in a way that will improve your physical and mental well-being. All classes include pranayama (breathing exercises), meditation and full relaxation.
  • All classes follow a specific theme. For example, one week we may work to strengthen the core and mental focus, whilst another we might improve our overall strength and flexibility to create a sense of balance throughout the whole body and mind.
  • I have first-hand experience of working in a high pressure environment where stress levels often run high. My classes provide a simple and effective way of reducing physical and mental tension.
  • My classes are for everyone and are about having fun too! People of all ages (from 20 to 80) and walks of life come to my classes. We laugh as we wobble in balances and smile as we stretch.
  • I have experience of many styles of asana (posture practice) including vinyasa flow, Iyengar, restorative, yin and ashtanga. I infuse my classes with the elements of these styles that I believe to be most beneficial.
