Most of our members are not out-and-out yogis. Their goals? For some; to stay active. For others; to deal with hardship. Yoga has a big heart. It can cope with all of that.
We concentrate on getting the basics right. Class numbers are kept low. That way you’ve space to move, observe, concentrate and learn. Even better, we get to know each other!
We practice seven strands of yoga exercises. These unify and strengthen your body. They develop your breathing and engage your mind. In a nutshell: that’s yoga.
Yoga does not happen overnight. It takes time and practise. We provide you with yoga props: straps, blocks, bricks and mats. These help you to develop your technique, sequencing and timing.
We often link the sessions to music. I always finish with a period of deep relaxation. You’ll know you’ve completed a robust and structured yoga practice. There’s nothing else like it for your body and mind.
Made your mind up? Ready to go – that’s great! We look forward to meeting you soon.

We run four teaching seasons per annum offering forty-two weeks of yoga each year.
Terms are not always coterminous with school holidays.
We try to schedule closures with those times when we know our members are less likely to be able to attend.
There are no classes on Bank Holidays.
We close for two weeks at Easter, three weeks at Christmas.
During the summer we close for the last week of June, into the first week in July.
Classes continue during midsummer until the last two weeks of August, into the first week in September, when we close again.
The definitive reference point is always the Booking Schedule.

Workshops are an important part of our syllabus. They are a significant opportunity for focus and diversification from regular yoga classes.
Iyengar Yoga is the natural progression of my style of yoga teaching. I invite a guest Iyengar Yoga teacher to offer members a different perspective; allowing them to concentrate on improving the finer details of their yoga practice.
“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
