All about my Classes
Monday at Balanced Living
9:30 am-10.45 am Slow Align Flow. Mixed Levels -
Here we flow the breath with fluidity and focus. We usually start by learning pose alignment and links from pose to pose.
We then move through a more dynamic flow in a fun and continuous practice.
In mixed levels classes you are encouraged to stay at your level of the pose as more advanced levels are offered.

8:00 pm-9:15 pm Hatha. Mixed Levels -
The perfect way to end the day! Here you will learn good, safe pose alignment, gain a clearer understanding on the teachings of Yoga and how they can help you lead a more fulfilled and calmer life.
With regular practice you will soon notice aches and pains easing and that you become stronger and more flexible. Mixed levels are encouraged to stay at your level of the pose or choose more advanced levels as offered.

Straight from your classroom to your Yoga class! In my Hatha classes you will learn good pose alignment, gain a much clearer understanding on the teachings of Yoga and how it can all help you lead a more fulfilled life.
With regular practice you will soon notice old aches and pains easing and will become stronger, more flexible and much better at dealing with stress. Expect the odd Strong Align Flow class over the weeks too.

Thursday at Balanced Living
9:30 am-10.45 am Hatha basics/ level 1 -
This is a great level 1 class if you are new to yoga, or if you’re someone who wants to go over the basics. It’s is also a perfect class if you are coming back to Yoga after a break.
You will be guided through the basics to get a thorough understanding of essential poses as well as the art and science of Yoga. Please feel free to join us for a coffee, juice or smoothie in the cafe downstairs after class.
Saturday at Balanced Living
9.30 am-11.00 am Yin/Yang. Mixed Levels -
This is a fabulous 90 minute Yin/ Yang weekend set up class! Roughly half of this class is a combination of alignment based Hatha and strong slow flow. Both build up heat and strength in the body (Yang). We then change to the more meditative practice of Yin Yoga. Here you will hold passive floor poses for up to 5 minutes opening the deeper connective tissues of your body.
This method of Yoga brings more flexibility as we open these deep tissues. It also opens up the nadis (or meridians) and so enables a much smoother flow of prana (or chi) around the entire body.

I have tried several Yoga classes over the years but always came away feeling that it “wasn’t for me”. However since I booked a package of one-to-one classes with Sarah my whole perception of Yoga has changed. Sarah’s teaching is excellent and nurturing. She is gentle with beginners, like me, but challenging enough to make sure I safely get the very best out of my body in each pose. I feel energised after each class and now feel brave enough to join one of her group classes! I can finally see why Yoga is so popular and wish I had found Sarah many years ago!Nikki Newman, Private student
