Which yoga class for me?

If you ask me what “style” of Yoga I teach then I would say “Carole Yoga”. That sounds silly but over the years I have studied many different types of Yoga including “Hatha”, “Scaravelli”, “Iyengar”, “Vinyasa Flow”, “Soma Prana Vinyasa Flow”, “Well Woman Yoga Therapy”. My classes are a blend of all that I have learned and evolve as I learn more!

Here are the descriptions to help you choose:

Beginners 10 Week Yoga Rolling Programme

A 10 Week Yoga Beginners Course covering all the key types of yoga poses and their health benefits, plus breathing and relaxation techniques and a look at the different styles of yoga. Join any time as this is a rolling programme!

All levels Yoga

This is a mixed level class suitable for Beginners and all other levels. Hatha based with occasional flow sequences, a Yin pose to finish and then breathing and relaxation. Please let me know if you are a complete beginner.

Hatha Vitality

A gentle paced Hatha Yoga Class focusing on releasing tension and building strength in key areas. Emphasis on building vitality through cultivating your Soma! Breathing and relaxation techniques taught together with advice on modifications for poses to suit individual needs. Suitable for all levels.

Slow Vinyasa Flow

A slow paced Vinyasa Flow Yoga Class incorporating Salute to the Sun, Standing and Balance poses, Core Strength and then some deep hip, openers, twists and inversions! Ideally you will have some yoga experience or have attended my 10 Week Beginners Yoga Course.

Men Only Yoga (Workshops or Private Classes)

Now that the England World Cup Football team have been seeing doing Yoga, it seems to be more popular amongst the lads! I do find that most men find a yoga class with women in it a tad intimidating so this class will focus on Men’s needs particularly. I have found this to be a lot of releasing of hamstrings, quads, hip flexors and lower backs, opening of shoulders and chest area o improve posture and breathing and learning to let go of the stress! All levels welcome. Message me if I can schedule a class for you and your mates or your sports team or club?

Yin Restorative Yoga for Women’s Health/ Yin Restorative Yoga for all

Do you need to step off your hamster wheel? Restorative/Yin Yoga is about using gravity and time together with deep restorative breathing to elicit the Relaxation Response in our bodies and reduce the stress hormone cortisol. You will learn to relieve stiffness in the muscles and joints and to work with the connective tissue (fascia) understanding the intrinsic link it has to everything physical and emotional within us. In the next few years it will become common place to talk about emotional experiences being held within the physical body structures. Come and get ahead of the game and learn how to release your stress and tension and also hopefully prevent it occurring in the first place! Suitable for all levels. Wednesday evenings 6.15pm is open to women 16+  including pregnant and post natal. Special focus given to female health issues and different class themes for certain areas. Monday evening 7.45pm is a mixed class.

Post Natal Mum & Baby Yoga (The Apex only)

From 6 weeks post birth come along with your beautiful baby and learn to gently help bring your body back from pregnancy. Core and back strength, upper body strength and lovely opening poses for hips and shoulders. Breathing and Relaxation techniques plus advice on Complementary Therapies and Nutrition.
