Why yoga?

People come to yoga classes for various reasons; to stretch the body deeply, reduce aches and pains and to manage stress.

Whatever your goals, a regular yoga practice can help you achieve this. It is suitable for beginners and especially good for those who consider themselves to be flexibly-challenged!

Where are the classes?

The classes are held at our Long Eaton Clinic.

When are the classes and what is the cost?

Our yoga classes run at different times throughout the week

Terms coincide with the Pilates terms with the cost equivalent to £10 per class i.e. 12 week course @£120.

  • Monday’s 8.30am – 9.30am
  • Thursday’s 12.15pm – 1.15pm
  • Friday’s 4.30pm – 5.45pm

How long are the classes?

Our breakfast and lunchtime classes last for just an hour to allow you to fit these into your schedule. The classes on a Friday last for 1 hour 15 minutes, this allows plenty of time to adapt to the class if you’re rushing in and time to get going again before heading off, facilitating a great start to the weekend.

Meet Annette, your instructor

My background lies in Music, Movement, Alignment, Dance and natural health. During the pregnancy with my son Liam I attended a Yoga class within a Natural Health and Wellbeing Centre. I discovered that this enhanced my ability to maintain muscle tone and physical strength, it improve my posture and flexibility and calmed the mind to aid relaxation. In doing so I realised how much Yoga had been used in my degree course for music and movement (Dalcroze Eurythmics) in Germany.

Encouraged by my Yoga teachers at the time I trained with the Yoga for Health Foundation to become a teacher myself. Yoga has been an integral part of my working week ever since and I very much enjoy exploring further courses and see Yoga as an ongoing development.

And the involvement with Yoga goes even further. It enriches my life on a daily basis. Yoga has so much more to offer than just a good stretch. It can be a fantastic way of unwinding and de-stressing and can provide some amazing tools to help you cope with life’s ups and downs.

Yoga within a physiotherapy clinic is a beautiful way of complementing the various therapies and I very much enjoy enhancing the wellbeing of the participants.

IMG_6676What happens in a class?

Whether it’s improving athletic performance or simply taking some time out for you to stop and draw breath- yoga is for you.

Classes run for 1 hour 15 minutes. At the start of the class you will be guided through a brief breathing/ relaxation practice to help settle the body and improve focus and concentration for the rest of the class. Most of the class will then be performing Asanas or postures which will specifically work certain areas of the body, to either stretch or strengthen them.

  • All courses will run dependent on numbers.
  • Full payment for the course must be received prior to the beginning of the course.
  • We apologise but once the course has started no refunds are possible. We will do our best to accommodate you in alternative classes.

IMG_6716Yoga is unique in that these movements are carefully co-ordinated with the breath which can make a big difference to how the body feels. Occasionally, the teacher will adjust the body whilst in a posture to assist in getting most benefit from it. Equipment such as blocks, belts and bolsters are also used in the class, again to assist in allowing the body to perform the posture correctly.

Following the asana or posture work, the class is ended with a further relaxation practice to allow the body to settle again and hopefully to feel the benefits of the class!

What do I need to bring?

There are no specific requirements to participate, mats and other equipment are provided. You will, however, need to wear loose fitting clothes and it is advisable not to eat a big meal 2 hours before the class starting.
