Classes

Yoga is not just about challenging physical postures

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 sessions will make you work hard – but also relax – in an efficient and effective way. Our teaching is based upon years of experience, coupled with depth of knowledge and continual professional development.

Choose from our eight weekly sessions and remember…

Your first session is free!

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 and enter TASTER as the discount code.

Our approach

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.

Music and yoga – sublime interaction

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.

Class sizes are kept low

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.

Our teacher’s voice

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!

What to expect in a class

Two phases

Each session has two phases – think of them as opposite sides of the same coin…

60-65 minutes of physically challenging yoga, developing:

  • strength, flexibility and stamina
  • posture and physique
  • coordination and balance
  • cardiovascular health

10-15 minutes of deep relaxation, enabling:

  • calmness of body and mind
  • self awareness
  • relief from harmful thinking
  • a sense of life purpose

Seven key yoga postures

Each session covers the seven key yoga postures:

  • Standing
  • Hip Openers
  • Forward Bends
  • Backbends
  • Twists
  • Arm Balances
  • Inversions

Our focus is on:

  • Alignment of muscles and joints
  • Controlled breathing
  • Relaxation and meditation
  • Established yoga traditions

Birch trees in the snowWinter into Spring Term

Mon 7th Jan – Fri 12th Apr 2019

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.

Venues and equipment

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.   

 

Corporate and 1-to-1 classes

 

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
