Our Yoga - Holistic Yoga for Everyone
Ever wanted to try yoga but thought you were not flexible enough, too old, wrong size ?
Anybody can access the benefits of yoga, yoga practice is a uniquely individual experience even when attending a class - its not about making perfect shapes, being super bendy and looking good in Lycra.
The yoga we offer is about improving individual well being regardless of size, shape, age - Yoga for Everyone.
In our yoga practice we can begin to breath more efficiently, understand ourselves and our bodies better and become more at ease with ourselves. Our classes are centred around a mindful approach, helping us be more aware and resilient in all areas of life. As well as that, some laughter and joy can be experienced in class, as important in yoga as it is life.
We aim to guide our students with transformational techniques, including physical (Asana) practice, breathing practices (Pranayama) and meditation, relaxation, in order to bring about a state of harmony, balance and ultimately contentment.
Our classes are suitable for all levels and we like to encourage people new to yoga and mature people. We do not currently offer pregnancy Yoga.
The Yoga Studio offers a unique, intimate and welcoming atmosphere with cosy underfloor heating, especially comforting when sitting/lying on the floor!
We have found that practising yoga in a beautiful space really enhances our practice. After many years of teaching in rather grubby, stark halls, when we built the Yoga Studio we prioritised creating a special sanctuary of warmth and calmness for the yoga community of Mapperley and surrounding areas. We also have an extensive range of yoga equipment to help ensure that your practice is as comfortable and developed as possible.
In order to welcome you back safely the following measures are in place:
The studio floor is cleaned regularly with a bleach solution.
Door handles and other touched surfaces wiped with antibacterial cloth between every class.
Room thoroughly ventilated before and during class.
Wide spacing between mats and small class sizes to meet government requirements.
Hand sanitizer provided for use on arrival.
No sharing of props or mats.
Track and trace details taken for each participant.
On to one - Individual classes
Individual yoga classes with Jane
Useful for those new to yoga or for those seeking more individual time to develop and deepen their practice.
Individual sessions: £40:00 (1 hour)
Yoga therapy with Jane
Yoga therapy is a self care approach to wellness. Working with the mind and the body the aim is to work together to explore the most appropriate techniques and tools that will be most helpful helpful to improve your health, or support you with any on going issues that may be causing you stress, discomfort, pain or other negative symptoms of illness.
Prior to the first session a form will be completed giving information about about general health, issues to be considered. At the first session the form will be reviewed and any further information gathered about routines, lifestyle choices, what is important to you, what you hope to gain from the sessions.
Working together we determine the approach to be taken and explore some techniques you will be able to use; establishing the amount of time you have to practice the tools is important, and a short programme will be written for you to take away with you.
In subsequent sessions there will be a brief review of how the practice is working for you and then you will be guided through the practice with elements being changed, or additional tools added as needed.
Yoga Therapy is an empowering and life affirming experience and must be done with commitment, willingness and enthusiasm to discover more about you and what your body and mind yearns for.

Sound Healing with Chrisandra (not currently available due to Covid restrictions)
A total relaxing and healing experience. Using Tibetan singing bowls placed on the body, vocal toning and a range of other instruments the body is filled with pure vibrations to clear, balance and heal.
One hour of Sound Healing £40
Restorative 1 to 1 yoga with Chrisandra (not currently available due to Covid restrictions)
Restorative yoga uses passive stretches supported by bolsters/blankets etc and works at a deep level on both physical/mental/emotional/energy issues. Each pose is held in comfort for longer than in a normal yoga class. It is delicious and feels so good!
It is particularly good for people with busy minds or lots of responsibilities, those who feel tired a lot of the time or have trouble sleeping, people who find it hard to relax, have issues with depression or anxiety, have balance problems, are recovering from illness or injury or just want to slow down and experience a deeply relaxing and renewing practice.
One hour £40
