SOUND BATH SUNDAYS
Monthly on Sundays at 3.00pm. July 18, August 22, September 26, October 24, November 21 and December 12
Join Naomi Hurst from Doda Yoga for a monthly Sound Bath at Studio Yoga.
This is a self-guided meditation aided by soothing sounds from a number of deeply melodic instruments. These include crystal singing bowls, symphonic gongs, wind chimes, rain sticks and other percussion instruments. There is no movement, you are free to lie down in any comfortable position, but we do recommend being on your back to absorb the vibrations fully through your body and your ears. Please bring your own blankets to ensure maximum comfort for this relaxing and therapeutic experience.
Spaces are strictly limited so advance booking is essential. BOOK HERE
Monthly on Fridays 4.00 – 5.15pm. July 23, Sept 24, Oct 15, Nov 19
Nourish yourself at this monthly class with a focus on relaxation. Restorative Yoga session involves conscious, deep rest. A quietening practice in which the body is fully supported, using props, in positions for ease and comfort, when all external stimulation is removed so the mind becomes still and calm, and the body can repair, heal and rejuvenate. The poses may be held for several minutes, allowing muscles to fully relax, and to feel a sense of openness, rather than stretching.
Pranayama is the word for yoga breathing techniques. These practices can help to reduce your stress levels and lower blood pressure. Breathing deeply sends a message to your brain to calm down, which then translates to your body – a simple and highly effective way to create a feeling of serenity and peace.
These sessions are for everyone. They complement more active classes and are an excellent way to care for yourself if you are feeling stressed, anxious or overwhelmed.

Limited spaces so advance reservations are essential. Book here. Cost: £35 per session.
Gary Carter is one of the UK’s leading teachers of anatomy as it relates to yoga and Pilates. He has over 30 years of experience of working with physical movement training, anatomical study and movement practices, from which he has created his own unique way of working and ‘seeing’ which he incorporates into his teachings, where students learn techniques and methods of training that bring long term results to the feel, movement and look of the body. Gary teaches and lectures throughout the UK and internationally in addition to running his highly acclaimed Anatomy & Myofascial courses for yoga and Pilates teachers.
10 weekends starting October 19/20 2019. This comprehensive course explores the anatomy of movement in relation to practice, movement analysis, 3D work and experiential anatomy. It will encourage teachers to ‘see’ their students more clearly, thus helping with rehabilitative issues. The course aims to help teachers take a flexible, intelligent approach to their specific field with individual students.

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.
Namaste Tamsin. Thank you for making the sessions so enjoyable and rewarding. I've been amazed at how much difference these classes have made to me. I am really looking forward to next term.
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.
It is the first time for over 30 years that I have joined a class solely for my benefit. I want to learn yoga properly from the beginning and the Wednesday class is perfect. Thank you.
Hi Tamsin, thank you for such an excellent class. I can't believe how energised I started to feel halfway through and at the end of the session. The breathing makes a massive difference and the slow movements. I'm loving these classes.
- 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!
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.
Coming to yoga with Tamsin is like going on a mini-holiday every week.
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.
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.
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.
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.
I love your classes and really look forward to them. I am also really impressed with the tremendous amount of time, thought and effort you have given to organising and presenting the range of online/Zoom classes over the last few months and all very easy to follow.
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.
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.
