Yoga for flexibility, relaxation, stress relief and sports mobility.
I have taught yoga for over 8 years to a variety of levels of experience (and practised for over 20y), including a stint in California! The weekly classes are hatha style, I trained with the British Wheel of Yoga and do annual CPD (Continuing Professional Development). Last year I studied yoga for mental health.
The students benefit from stretching, strengthening and relaxing. We have a mix of women and men or all ages, including some keen cyclists and runners, office workers, Mums and people with busy lives.
Come and give it a go!

'Joanne, there is one more thing I would like to say, and that is that I think you do a great job at these sessions. It took me a little while to 'get' what yoga is really about - relaxation, breathing and using these techniques to improve flexibility. After the first course I definitely feel the difference- at my age, forget the six packs - fitness is about maintaining motor capability! You have a nice style which allows everyone to run at their own speed and which also makes the session enjoyable' .
'I was a little nervous and worried about joining my first yoga class, as so many other fitness classes that I've tried in the past feel like you've been left behind. However, Joanne makes the classes so that all abilities can join in and not feel out of place and always reiterates that we need to go at our own pace and not worry what the person next to us is doing. This instantly makes you feel more relaxed and at ease. She is also willing to help individuals with their needs and makes alternative pose suggestions to suit. All in all, a great class with a great teacher! Thanks'. Lynne
'Jo is very calm and the variety of poses she uses gives your body a really good stretch. I am pleased to have Jo as my yoga teacher as the classes have helped ease tension in my back'
