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:
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!
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.
