Our classes are small and intimate, friendly and fun. We provide classes that are challenging, but we invite you to take the level that is appropriate for you. We always remind you to be kind to yourself and to rest if you need to; or conversely to push yourself deeper, by providing you with variations of the postures offered.
Yoga takes place in our small, modern yoga space in Walton-on-Thames, Surrey. We have eco friendly yoga mats, wooden floors, discrete lighting, wood fires and yoga music, to take you out of your hectic life into the present moment; so you can escape the chattering mind and really focus on your yoga practice.
What yoga classes, private yoga tuition and yoga therapy do we offer?
Align, Strengthen, Lengthen, Tone, Balance
During the posture/asana part of the yoga lesson, we focus on alignment of the whole body and spine. We work on strengthening the core; balancing the back and the abdominal muscles. We open the hips, which is key to mobility. We strengthen the upper body and lengthen and strengthen the lower limbs. We aim to balance, strengthen and tone the whole body and both left and right sides.
We help you learn to breathe more easily through your practice and with breath work, Pranayama. This can increase your lung capacity, to increase your energy levels and help you to relax more easily. Synchronising your breath with movement can also help you to increase your digestive fire to boost your metabolism and immune system and detoxify the body, helping you to maintain a healthy body weight.
We always end with a calming relaxation, in Savasana, to ensure your whole body reaps the benefits of the posture work you have been doing.
See You Soon
We hope to see you in our yoga classes, or for private yoga classes and yoga therapy, very soon.

The six gates lock essentially blocks our six senses, including our sixth sense of perception and intuition. This Mudra is said to be relaxing, comforting, quietening, rejuvenating and helps to establish peace and tranquillity. This [...]
