 Beginners Course

A step by step introduction to nourish your mind, body and soul, without feeling confused, uncomfortable or left behind!

Nervous about taking the first step?

I get it.

After everything you've been through and everything that's going on in the world, you're feeling stressed and anxious.  You've been so busy looking after everyone else you've had no time to take care of yourself.  And you've got the aches, pains, stiffness and exhaustion to prove it.  

You know that yoga could be just what you need to release all that tension built up in your mind and body, and get back to the 'real you'.


everyone you've seen doing yoga is young, skinny, bendy and fit so how will you be able to get yourself into the same shapes?

I've got a secret to share with you:

Yoga is NOT about what you can or can't do with your body.

I know that's hard to believe when all you see are yoga teachers doing crazy acrobatic poses on clifftops, but there are so many hidden layers that never get mentioned in most yoga classes.

I'm here to reveal these secrets and show you that yoga is about SO much more than the shapes we make.


If you can breathe, you can do yoga with me.

But I still don't think I can do it...

I'm worried about messing up in front of everyone and feeling like an idiot

You're not alone!  If you knew everything about yoga and could do it all, there would be no point you doing this course.  Believe me, the other students will be concentrating so hard on what they're doing they won't notice what you're up to, so we can all mess up, laugh and carry on knowing we're amongst friends!

I can't sit still and I think I'll be bored

When we're so used to rushing around it's hard to slow down!  That's why I'll ease you in gradually, making sure there's plenty of movement and always something to focus on, with the opportunity for more stillness when you're ready for it.  Even my most restless students learn to love my guided relaxations!

I don't have anything to wear!

You don't need yoga clothes to do yoga - a t-shirt and jogging bottoms works fine as long as you're comfortable and can move around easily.

I tried yoga before and I had a bad experience

I'm really sorry to hear that - it obviously wasn't the right introduction for you.  But would you give up on eating at restaurants just because you had a bad experience at one restaurant?  This course is different, and it's designed to make people who have been confused, uncomfortable and left behind at other yoga classes feel right at home.

I don't feel like I have a 'yoga body'

Yoga is NOT about what you can or can't do with your body.  This course will show you that it's so much more than that and everyone (yes, even you) has a yoga body!

So now you know you CAN do yoga, what are you waiting for?​
