Class Level Descriptions
New to Yoga Courses
Designed for those completely new to yoga who want to start off at a basic, slower paced level and who need a more step-by-step approach. 5 week courses run from September 2019 and after a minimum of one 5 week course, students can join any of the other beginners classes currently running or continue with the New to Yoga class.
Suitable for those with just a very basic experience of yoga, more mature students starting yoga in later life, or those recovering from injury or managing illness
Suitable for beginners to yoga and those with a more regular practice. It assumes you have a general level of fitness and have no major health issues that would need a slower, more individualised class pace.
Suitable for those with a regular practice of at least 3 months or for those who have completed the “New to Yoga” course – not for new beginners to yoga.
Not for new beginners but for those with at least a few months practice of yoga to the more advanced practitioner.
For students with at least 2 years yoga experience. All schools of yoga are welcome and this class is especially useful for teachers, trainees and more experienced students looking to deepen their practice.
Private Home Tuition
“I’ve been to 50 physios around the world to fix my back pain, nothing worked. Within 3 sessions of yoga with Rachel, the pain went away. Yoga has had a profound effect on my life.” Duncan Bannatyne OBE
On request yoga courses for individuals, couples or small groups who want to organise their own private yoga sessions at home. Also for specialist classes where perhaps group class situations are not feasible. Prices start at £45 for a one hour session.
On request for corporate events or ongoing in-house yoga for staff. Yoga in the workplace taken on a regular basis can greatly enhance the work-life balance and give participants a healthy and happy start to the day.
To book any group class or enquire about private or corporate tuition, please contact Rachel on [email protected] or call 07725120043.

Not only for the young & flexible!
You do not have to be a particular age or level of flexibility to come to class. Being young and flexible is NOT a pre-requisite! Iyengar Yoga will slowly and safely improve your flexibility (which is important for joint mobility as well as heart and blood circulation) and change your posture for the better. It will also build strength, health and vitality where you need it most.
If on the other hand you are too flexible, the alignment-based yoga will help you to avoid injury and hyper-mobility so you can attain a stronger and more balanced body.
Men are as welcome as women. Many of Rachel’s clients are professional athletes or men who practice a lot of sports. Yoga is non-competitive. Everyone is an individual in Rachel’s classes and you work according to your own capabilities. Yoga works not only on the physical body, but also on the mind and on personal development. In fact, health and wellness are considered a positive by-product of this ancient practice by many serious yogis, the main purpose of which being to still the mind.
“Rachel is a fantastic teacher. She has a deep understanding of the Iyengar method and is very empathetic. A dedicated teacher. If you live within striking distance of her classes and therefore able to attend on a regular basis, then you are fortunate indeed.”
