Classes

Classes and group sessions – in-person and live-streamed by Zoom 

In-person classes are now happening in our light and spacious room at Friends’ Meeting House, overlooking the trees.  They are simultaneously live-streamed by Zoom (camera on me not those in class).  Other classes are Zoom only at the moment.  The teaching approach is gentle and I hope to share the depth and fullness of yoga in a straightforward way.  See About Sue and Recommendations

Monday 8am is a half-hour practice session, which requires some previous experience. Beginners are welcome in all other classes. Those with experience will be supported to develop and deepen their yoga practice.  Class size is limited (max. 9 people in-person, 15 people total).  Individual health issues and needs are taken into consideration and choices and guidance offered so that each person can find their own way to enjoy and benefit from yoga. There’s a little time at the start and end of most classes for questions and individual help – and you are welcome to get in touch to talk about yoga. Or you could book a 1-to-1 – see 1-to-1 and Private Sessions

Weekly during term-time.  Half-term break w/c 30th May.  Classes start again Mon 6th June and run 4 weeks to 30th June

The yoga practices and choices offered take into consideration the various health issues and needs of participants and there’s a lot of flexibility in arrangements – for example you may attend part of the class, sit or lie down for the class, join in occasionally, take more time to rest.

Cancellation and Refunds
For cancellation of Zoom sessions up to 48 hours before start date, you may have a full refund less £10 admin fee.  Within 48 hours of start date, you may have a refund of 75% of the value of the remaining sessions less £10 admin fee.  For cancellation of in-person sessions up to 48 hours before start date, you may have a full refund less £20 admin fee.   Sorry no refunds within 48 hours of start date – that’s because it’s likely I turned away other bookings which are difficult to regain later.  Alternatively, you may change to another class in the same time period that has space OR give your booked place to a friend. If you have booked a series of classes and will miss one or more classes, you may make it up with any other class I offer that has space any time during the series or give your place in the missed session to a friend. If I need to cancel any sessions, I will replace or refund.

What you’ll need, using Zoom etc.
At the moment, for in-person classes, I am still asking people to bring their own yoga mat, blanket(s)/throw(s) and anything else you may need (such as yoga blocks, cushions, yoga belt or scarf/tie and drink). You will need similar equipment at home. I’ll give you more information on enquiry/booking. Zoom software is free of charge and generally easy to use on computer, tablet or phone. We have been amazed how well we have been able to practise together in this way. When you book a class, I will send you a link to access the session and some guidance for setting up your space at home. You may choose to turn your camera off sometimes or arrange your space so that you are not always visible – I just need to know that it’s you and that you can practise safely.

Safety and Wellbeing including Covid 19
Some measures are in place for in-person classes for the safety and well-being of all participants, myself and other people who use the venue. Please do not attend an in-person class if you have recently tested positive for Covid 19 or are feeling at all unwell and there is a possibility you may have Covid 19.   You may replace missed in-person class with any Zoom class any time over the 6 weeks.  Please bring your own yoga mat, 2 throws, yoga belt/tie/scarf and anything else you may need to in-person classes.  Yoga blocks are freely available for you to borrow.  I have a limited number of mats and throws which I can loan for your personal use only (one-time washing fee £3/mat, £2/throw for duration of your booking).  The venue asks that you please wear a face covering in public areas.  Once settled in your yoga place, it’s your choice whether you wish to wear a face covering or not.
