“Movement is the song of the body” Vanda Scaravelli
YOGA & PILATES WORKSHOPS:
We have weekend workshops and masterclasses for all levels of experience, whether you’re a teacher, keen student or total novice. Guest teachers who visit the studio include Gary Carter, Michael Hutchinson and Penny Little.
Upcoming workshops are listed below:
New date and venue: Saturday November 24, Tadley, near Basingstoke. Half day yoga workshop with Michael Hutchinson exploring the role of backward bends in our yoga practice. These are important poses not only for promoting strength, flexibility and a deep inhalation; they have a more subtle purpose in opening the heart area and boosting confidence. However they can also be a challenge – can we all learn to love Cobra, or Camel?
Email Michael@twobirdsyoga.com to book.
Friday December 14, 1.30-4.30pm. These regular sessions with Gary Carter are run as an on-going practice group with work on and off the mat, discovering how to refine our practice by moving with efficiency and intelligence. They are open to teachers, trainee teachers and experienced students (Yoga teachers can claim up to 3 CPD points per workshop).
Limited spaces so advance reservations are essential. Book through the website. Cost: £32 per session.

- I, like many many others have suffered years of lower back problems, not helped by being a livestock farmer.Last year I had a prolapsed disc. When it eventually eased I went on the yoga for lower backs course.It has been hugely beneficial, not only for building physical strength, but also because it gave me the framework for better and quicker recovery when flareups have reoccurred and the mental strength knowing there is a way forward when things go wrong. The course shows an effective and doable way to really reduce back problems. As long as you do your exercises!
Studio Yoga offers the unique opportunity to attend regular classes in a range of Yoga styles in a tranquil dedicated space. I am particularly pleased to be able to attend workshops led by a resident or visiting teachers offering a more in-depth exploration of Yoga.
Please could you let Anneli know how brilliant I think she is as a Pilates teacher. What she does with me is really helping reduce any pain and is increasing my strength and flexibility. Thank you.
The Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs course has really helped my shoulders and flexibility. I like creating space for me and the calm it gives - thank you.
Tamsin is a great tutor, who creates an environment for her students that fosters the spirit of giving everything a go in a safe way. I wholeheartedly recommend Studio Yoga to anyone wanting to increase their flexible and sense of general well-being. The classes are friendly and small and are made up of all ages, sizes and genders. Each session builds on the last; creating a sense of achievement for the student each week.
After 6 years, I still look forward to my weekly yoga session. It sets me up for anything that the week can throw at me.
Since starting Tamsin’s hatha yoga classes a year ago, I have noticed a marked improvement in my balance, core strength and flexibility. Tamsin makes all ages and abilities feel relaxed and welcome and her enthusiasm, warmth and encouragement have created a positive and enjoyable environment in which to practice and learn. I always look forward to my classes and leave feeling calmer, stronger and happier. Thank you.
I would highly recommend the Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs course to anyone who suffers with back pain. It certainly has been the most beneficial form of treatment for me and has helped me recover from the most agonising painful back period I've ever had. That now seems to be a distant memory. I am genuinely thrilled I came to Yoga for Healthy Lower Backs.
It is a necessary pleasure for me to kick-start my week at Studio Yoga. The Monday morning class sets me up for the week ahead. Tamsin is a dedicated teacher. Her classes are varied, her instructions clear and she always has an eye on her pupils individual physical requirements making adjustments that enhance their practice. I highly recommend Studio Yoga.
Thank you for a couple of very good years of yoga. I had no experience of yoga before coming to you and you've been a super teacher. I now incorporate yoga into many daily activities - from walking the dogs, working at my to desk, to emptying the washing machine...Your studio is a serene and friendly place, and I've appreciated your immense professionalism and commitment.
Coming to yoga with Tamsin is like going on a mini-holiday every week.
