To us yoga is an inclusive, enjoyable activity for the personal fitness and wellbeing of all. It’s mainly about looking after yourself. Yoga prolongs and sustains your fitness, agility and ability to live life well.
Our yoga sessions will make you work hard – but also relax – in an enjoyable, efficient and effective way. Our approach is based upon years of experience, coupled with depth of knowledge and continual professional development in yoga.
To help you discover whether yoga – and how we teach it – is right for you, we’re delighted to offer you a free taster session. Simply book the session of your choice, using a single session pass, and enter TASTER as the discount code.
Our classes offer something extra, commensurate with the needs and abilities of men and women, beginners, returners, or more seasoned yogis.
We teach classic Hatha yoga, which is the foundation of all authentic yoga. We draw from contrasting but complementary yoga traditions: mostly Iyengar, Deshikashar and Sivananda. This means you will receive well-rounded and informed instruction based on fact, not mystique.
Johnston is passionate about music of all types. He exploits its energising and therapeutic qualities during each phase of every session. Indeed the music is often cited as being one of the things our students most enjoy. As a result no two sessions are the same. You will know that you’ve given of your best to the ever-changing river that yoga is in relation to the nature of life itself.
Our classes are capped because we recognise the connection between teacher-student ratio and quality. You will have the space to move, breath and get proper individual attention from the teacher.
Our sessions are structured and systematically developed around a musical soundtrack, with flexible objectives for different aptitudes and ability. You’ll leave feeling exercised, relaxed and renewed.
Johnston prides himself on being just an ordinary guy who loves yoga. He has a great – rather quirky – sense of humour, which he likes to imbibe into his teaching and which reflects his broad experience and insight into yoga. His dulcet Irish tones and intuitive relaxation techniques help students to consolidate their experience, be relaxed and feel grounded at the end of each session: ready to take on what the world throws at us. And because yoga shouldn’t always be hard work!
Each session has two phases – think of them as opposite sides of the same coin…
60-65 minutes of physically challenging yoga, developing:
10-15 minutes of deep relaxation, enabling:
Each session covers the seven key yoga postures:

We run four teaching seasons per year. There are no classes during Bank Holiday weekends or over Easter and Christmas. Classes continue during the summer months.
Spring is in the air. Our favourite season, with beautiful new growth and brightness coming into the days. Time to shift the winter and get ready for the longer warmer days with yoga.
There will be no sessions during the May Bank Holiday weekends.
Holiday time and the joy and warmth of summer: at least we certainly hope so! Lovely long evenings for yoga.
Autumn can be so beautiful. Time to settle down and get cosy with yoga.
There will be a one week break between Sunday 21st and Sunday 28th October.
Winter is a time for drawing in, but also for reflection as we start the new year. Why not start as you mean to go on, with a regular yoga practice?
There will be a one week break between Wed 27th Feb and Wed 6th Mar.
Our classes take place in warm, modern venues with good facilities and free parking. See our Contact page for maps and directions.
The venues don’t have any yoga equipment, so you’ll need to bring your own mat. Don’t worry if you’re new though, I always bring some yoga mats with me that you can borrow.
Free yoga strap! Every student who buys a class pass for the first time will get a free yoga strap for added support in some of the postures.
We also offer private 1-to-1 tuition and corporate classes in your workplace.

“Johnston’s yoga classes are the best! He combines wonderful yoga with lively banter and great music, as well the physiology behind the poses, so that you really know what you are doing and why. All abilities are catered for and classes are dynamic, with no two weeks being the same. On top of this, the 10-week class pass does not have to be used consecutively, meaning if you have to miss a week you are not penalised financially. What more could you want!” – Lucinda Cocks
