sandwich yoga shed
Yoga is a permanent exploration, never to master.
The sandwich yoga shed offers an inclusive practice. We require no previous experience or skill.
Everybody is on their own exploration and I will guide you to honour your body and mind and develop your own practice. "Make it your own" is a key motto in class along with "see how you feel".
I hope that you will unwind and dwell on the present within the shed.
Daily yoga classes available Monday - Saturday and full day events are in the planning, to include food and a creative element to the occasion.
We are based just outside of the town (walking distance), hidden from a main road, with on street parking available. Full address details will be provided upon booking. Please make contact by telephone or email, below.
Please email email@example.com or text 07715 435660 to book a place, as space is still limited due to Covid restrictions.
We will also continue some live streaming of classes for confident yogis. Access is via zoom and not suitable for those that are new to yoga or live stream classes^.
We are taking details for the next Introduction to Yoga, a bespoke set of four weekly lessons, laying out, and breaking down, poses and key words you may hear within classes. After the four weeks, I would hope you feel confident enough to join in timetabled classes.
As the timetable evolves we will offer day retreats, ongoing specialised workshops /asana labs: breaking down poses and working on our understanding of the poses we use in our practice.
^Live streaming offers a view of the teacher as they teach a live class. You are able to ask questions.

Practice (class) descriptions
There is nothing to master and everything to explore
All classes are sequenced in four parts, according to the history and ancient literature on yoga:
A mobility element (seen as the Beginning Stage of becoming aware of one's body).
A meditative element (known as the Vessel Stage. Breath and movement aligned and how the mind can be affected by the changes in the body).
A stronger movement element (offering the Increase Stage where you are confident and acquainted with the poses).
Ending with the rest and digest element, Savasana, (the Consummation Stage. Allowing your body to absorb the class and your practice).
Sun Salutations cover Surya Namaskar A, B and C. Linking breath and movement whilst incorporating additional poses (asanas). You will be offered cues and layered guidance with regard to the routine and flow of the class. Suitable for all abilities.
Pose Flow classes offer an exploration around asanas that are linked by a theme: back bends, forward folds, balance etc. Offering a full body of movement whilst concentrating on the theme of the class.
Vinyasa Flow covers the linking of poses/movement and means "to place in a special way". This can be a challenging class but you are offered space to explore every element of the flow.
Hatha Flow is a slower form of vinyasa, offering similar movements and poses which may be held for longer.
Classes will include breathwork and always end with savasana (Corpse Pose) the ultimate restorative asana. Savasana is key to your practice and allows you to absorb and assimilate the effects of the class whilst offering a feeling to completeness.
