Throughout the year I teach a rolling programme of yoga classes in Cumbria.  I also offers technique clinics, workshops, yoga days and other special events, all aimed at individuals wishing to deepen their practice and broaden their understanding of yoga.

All classes and most events are held at Eaglesfield Village Hall (CA13 0RN), just 2 miles from Cockermouth.

My 12-week autumn programme commences on Tuesday 25th September and runs until Thursday 13th December – the timetable is shown below .  You can find details of autumn special events on my events page.

Sarah Kekus – Yoga Teacher

Sarah has practised yoga since she was teenager. But, it was not until she started practising Ashtanga, that she really fell in love with the peace and headspace that can come from a powerful practise linking breath with continuous flowing movement.

Initially qualifying as an Ashtanga yoga teacher, she then undertook a specific “Yoga for Dancers” training and then went on to gain a “Yoga for Sport” qualification, after training with Sarah Ramsden, who coaches yoga to Manchester United and Manchester City football players.  She has also completed an intensive Ashtanga Yoga Teacher Training with David Swenson and, most recently, she’s been studying “Liquid Flow” sequencing with Simon Park.

Sarah also regularly attends workshops led by some of the world’s most inspirational yoga teachers including Matthew Sweeney, Kino Macgregor,  David Sye, Alessandra Pecorella, Celest Pereira, Laruga Glaser and Claire Missingham, to ensure she can bring the best of global yoga to Cumbria.

Class Descriptions

Sarah offers a variety of yoga classes to suit different abilities and aspirations.  Below you’ll find class descriptions of each class on the timetable to help you choose a class that is perfect for you:

Liquid Flow

This class will have you on your toes and dancing with your breath as you move through beautiful, fluid sequences set to ever-changing uplifting playlists.  Creatively choreographed and embracing the freedom of movement, these classes flow seamlessly with shifting tempos encompassing the mesmerising force of a mountain waterfall or the giddy chuckling of a melt-water stream to the steady, much slower, deep flow of a valley river.  With an emphasis on graceful movement, that feels good, you’ll find that resistance dissolves as you immerse yourself in your practise and deepen your mind-body connection.

Fierce Warrior Flow

Redefine your practise and develop a leaner, stronger physique in this full-body workout! Infused with a sassy, sometimes fiery, warrior spirit this is a continuous flow, creatively linking sequences that demand grace, strength, balance and flexibility. With some more advanced poses “thrown in”, this class offers a challenging progression that tests endurance and builds stamina against a backdrop of carefully curated playlists!

Yoga for Sport – Body Aligned Functional Yoga

Emphasising flexibility, stability and strength, this class aims to improve range and quality of movement, reduce aches and pains and improve posture through carefully realignment.  The class is aimed at athletes keen to improve their sports performance but it is equally suited to those suffering from the “wear and tear”  of everyday life.  As a climber and outdoor enthusiast, Sarah frequently draws on her own experiences (and mishaps!), offering a “down to earth” approach to keeping supple, managing common niggles and keeping injuries at bay! This is a very inclusive class, suitable for complete beginners.

Yoga Fundamentals for Beginners

Building on the teaching material that has been shared in my Yoga Fundamentals for Sport Workshops, “beginners “classes are aimed at those new to yoga seeking to improve range of movement, balance over and under-used muscles and increase core strength and stability.  Spinal articulation (including shoulder girdle), injury management and prevention will also be covered.

Yoga Sculpt and Flow

Combining the energetic “movement meditation” of strong flow with targeted body conditioning this class offers both fat-burning and body conditioning benefits. The classes are designed to sculpt and strengthen arms, shoulders and upper backs whilst also creating lean abs through targeted core work. Well-defined muscles will boost your metabolism so you burn more calories and transform your physique!

Progressive Ashtanga

Building on previous “Road to Mysore” courses, this class is aimed at students who want to deepen their knowledge and embrace the “eight-limbs” of Ashtanga.  Classes are taught in an inclusive way, offering detailed alignment coaching, “hands-on” adjusts and an understanding of the entire Ashtanga Primary Series.  Anyone with a sincere desire to learn the Ashtanga method is welcome; the teaching encourages discipline and honest self-appraisal so that all participants can progress safely whilst building confidence.  Developing self-reliance and allowing our inner voice to be our guide remains the key teaching philosophy of this class which is aimed towards committed students.

1:1 yoga allows your session to be tailored to your specific needs. If you are new to yoga or if you have an injury, private sessions can help you to build confidence and improve your understanding of alignment and movement principles before joining group classes. Taking private lessons are also an opportunity to receive personal feedback and development advice as well as hands-on adjusts to help you really “feel” correct alignment. Private classes also provide an opportunity for more experienced students to “fast-track their practice and/or learn more challenging poses in a safe environment.

Private sessions can either take place in the comfort of your own home, or at my small home studio.

I also offer private group sessions; these are perfect if you would like a class just for you and a small group of your friends or if you’d like me to come to your office and work with you and your colleagues. Add another person to either a 1:1 or a group session for just £10 per additional person for a perfectly personalised solution!

1:1 session  £55.00
1:1 session (block of 5) £225.00
Small Private Group (max 5 students) £80.00
