The classes will encompass a series of postures, meditation, breathing exercises . But every class is different and that is the fun of it! Each class is personal and suited to individual strengths and limitations, to accommodate a mixed ability..

At Physio Plus, yoga  classes are taught based upon a classical approach together with a contemporary method. A focus on structural alignment is key to yoga and facilitates better performance in a wide range of sports. But most importantly, it is how great it makes you feel! All classes are booked in blocks of 6 weeks, a trial class may be arranged (if availability allows)by contacting reception on 02891871701


Pregnancy Yoga classes

Pregnancy Yoga class on a Tuesday at 1930

Yoga is suitable for all stages of pregnancy from 14 weeks onward and will help you prepare physically, mentally and emotionally for labour and motherhood.  It can also be a great way to meet other pregnant women in various stages of pregnancy.

Yoga postures and breathing techniques can help to:

  • Increase your confidence in an otherwise uncontrollable situation
  • Build confidence in your ability to give birth
  • Improve your energy levels
  • Enhance relaxation and feelings of well-being
  • Improve your self-image

Yoga can help alleviate many of the discomforts of pregnancy including:

  • Back pains
  • Swollen ankles
  • Heartburn and indigestion
  • Poor sleep
  • Varicose veins


What’s the difference between Pilates and Yoga?

Both Pilates and yoga focus on developing strength, balance, flexibility, posture and good breathing technique. With its emphasis on the unity between the mind and body, yoga has a more spiritual side that Pilates does not. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase the strength and flexibility of the whole body) and breathing.

Pilates also uses breathing, but its exercises focus much more on precise movements to target specific parts of the body. The best Pilates classes are in small groups where the teacher can develop programmes to suit each person’s strengths and weaknesses.

I have been practising Yoga on and off for the past 15 years.  I began to take it more seriously in the past 4 years and started to build my own personal practice both on and off the mat.  I enrolled on the YTTC Level One yoga training course in October 2016 with the primary goal of learning more about the philosophy of Yoga and to continue to develop my personal practice.  The course, whilst being very challenging at times due to working full time as a Specialist Bariatric nurse and a busy family and home life, was a wonderful experience.  I learnt how Yoga has the power to enrich one’s life particularly in today’s fast paced world.  It fits in so well with my passion and interest in health, nutrition, wellbeing and nature.  I even discovered it assisted in my day job as a Bariatric Nurse.

I love how Yoga can be for everyone, all abilities, all body shapes, all ages etc.  The practice of Yoga can create many benefits both on and off the mat and I feel very privileged being able to teach and pass on the gift of Yoga at Physio Plus.  Teaching has fueled my passion for Yoga even more and over the next few years I intend to continue with my learning and study.

Having always been interested in all aspects of the physical body, when I incorporated Yoga and Meditation I knew I had found the path I would never leave; it all fell into place so to speak. Since then I have been keen to assist others on their journey navigating this human existence we all share. My teaching draws on Philosophy and Psychology while also incorporating Zen wisdom and the teachings found in Raja Yoga and Jnana Yoga to assist the physical practice and make sense of it all. Anxiety and stress abound in the modern age so the teaching style I like to advocate is based on both empowerment and release to both strengthen and open the physical body and also to free the mind from hindrance and restriction.

I discovered yoga, about eight years ago, after a friend suggested it as a good accompaniment to other forms of exercise. Since then my passion for it has grown steadily. I completed my Javani Heart of Yoga teacher training in 2016 and have been teaching a variety of classes since then. I regularly attend workshops and retreats to further my own knowledge and share in my teaching. My classes are focused on breath and movement with a calm clear mind. Students are guided through a combination of simple flowing sequences and static poses and are encouraged to experience an individual practice within the structure of the class setting. Modifications and alternatives are offered to make classes suitable for most levels of ability including beginners. I believe Yoga has many different benefits for many people so why not try it and see if it has anything to offer you?
