Sarah offers a variety of yoga classes to suit all 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!
Ashtanga is a dynamic, traditional yoga system that combines breath with movement. Poses are linked in a set sequence, which targets different systems of the body and mind. The general Ashtanga classes offer the fundamental essence of this practice — breath, movement and sequence. You will be guided throughout and the pace will be adapted to the students that attend. Everyone is welcome to attend this class, which will be taught in an inclusive way. Simply come with a sincere heart, a willingness to embrace traditional Samkhya and the discipline to meet challenges head on!
