Sivananda Yoga Classes

"Health is wealth, peace of mind is happiness, yoga shows the way" - Swami Vishnu-Devananda

About Sivananda Yoga

During this traditional Hatha yoga class you will listen and perhaps join me in chanting in Sanskrit at the beginning and end of each lesson.  You lay down whilst being guided through a meditation of the body and breath and then we begin Asana practise.  The class ends with 15 minute final relaxation and guided meditation.

Swami Vishnu-Devananda describes 12 basic postures of yoga, these postures allow free movement of the spine in all directions which act as a tonic for the spine maintaining flexibility.

With regular practice you will enjoy increased levels of strength, stamina, stillness of mind and an overall sense of well-being, all very welcome side effects to the regular practise of yoga.

I have personally watched people’s lives transform with regular yoga practise and in particular private tuition where the class is tailor made for you. Clients have watched with amazement as their body eases into strength, a lightness in step is born and the freedom of movement soon replaces any restrictions once felt. Private tuition is suitable for all abilities young and old.

Private Yoga Tuition

Would you like to practise yoga but not in a busy class and prefer direct guidance from me?  Great, we would begin by understanding what you wanted to achieve and look at how you are able to move and where, if any, restrictions are being held in your body.  The classes then become tailor made around you, they could be either traditional Hatha Yoga class or Yin Yoga class, depending on how you feel on the day.  It is also possible that the  class could be a blend of both yoga styles in a more prescriptive way…..feeling energised? then a stronger Hatha Yoga class, feeling the need to turn your attention inwards and rest in longer stretches? then Yin Yoga will be the class.  All classes have guided meditations, Asana (posture) practise and chanting.  With 28 years of Yoga practise and 16 years of teaching experience you are coming to a safe place to restore peace and unravel tightness and tension.  Om shanti.
Due to covid-19, I now request that clients please bring your own Yoga mat, equipment and blankets.

I have been going to Sarah’s Yoga classes for nearly 10 years now and I still really enjoy them and get so many benefits from them – both physically and mentally.
