Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic and energetic form of yoga in which postures are linked in a flowing sequence through careful synchronisation of deep, regular breathing that uses the whole lung capacity. The physical benefits of regular Ashtanga Yoga practice include improved circulation, improved digestion, increased oxygenation of the blood, greater strength and flexibility in muscles (especially core muscles), as well as spinal flexibility and improved posture. The result is a light and strong body, and a calm mind. Yoga instructor Karen Jones will lead the Saturday morning sessions with a multi-level approach so classes are accessible to all levels of ability. Karen has a great deal of experience with complete beginners, modifying and assisting with postures as necessary. Karen provides mats for her sessions so even if you are a total beginner just come along and have a go!

Vinyasa Flow is a style of yoga which focuses on breathing and movement, flowing between poses with the power of the breath, set to the soothing sounds of the natural environment. Connect with nature by participating in an outdoor Vinyasa Flow yoga class by the sea or on the lawn at Royal William Yard. Yoga has traditional roots outdoors and practicing in this stunning location gives you the opportunity to listen to the waves, smell the grass and invigorate your body and mind. Clair’s classes welcome people at all levels of practice, she has experience in modifying postures to suit individual bodies and needs.
