(These are at a rate of £35 to £50 a session depending on where and how long).
Monday 7 - 8.30pm Gentle Hatha Yoga Class
We focus on our breath and gently stretch the body before working on some strengthening poses and gradually introducing balances and new peak poses. This class is challenging but calming, letting go of what doesn't serve us, aligning body and mind. It is suitable for beginners but also aims to enhance the well being of anyone who has been practising for longer.
Classes will include: some pranayama (breath work) and bandhas (muscle and energy lock development) to prepare the internal systems, standing poses to engage that strength and energy, deeply opening and restorative poses, with a final Yoga Nidra relaxation meditation.
Wednesday 6.30 - 8pm Hatha Vinyasa Yoga Class
This class includes varied series of invigorating, strengthening, opening, relaxing and balancing postures, harnessing the breath in a fluid flow of sequenced asanas, sometimes holding poses for a longer time and then enjoying some deep opening restorative poses and inversions at the end of the class. Ideally suited for those with some experience or a good level of fitness.
Wednesday 4.30 -5.45pm Gentle Hatha/Restorative Yoga Class
A gentle class for those who experience stiffness, discomfort or injury or who are new to Yoga. There will be some floor work and a few standing poses. We work gently and mindfully at an appropriate pace, using props to modify poses so they are of maximum benefit and ensure we keep consciously breathing deeply and not holding tension.
"I was a complete novice when I started about 6 months ago, now I try not to miss a session. Fiona really does help people at every level to enjoy yoga. As an aside it has really helped with work stress, parenting and my mental health generally (which I was not expecting!)" Juliet
"The Jones Family have been practicing yoga with Fi for all of this year. I take my husband and two tweens/teens to the session. We all love it and benefit from the exercises to the deep recharge relaxation at the end. The kids really unwind. Not an easy thing to do, teaching awkward young bodies that are growing and learning to move. And guiding stiff older bodies that need new strength. We love you Fiona and cant wait for the next time!" Elise
"Fiona’s yoga classes offer the perfect opportunity to develop your yoga practice, whatever your current level. She is hugely sensitive to each person’s needs and takes great care to fine-tune her individual support." Rob
"As a newbie to yoga, I have found Fiona to be an excellent teacher. She is very patient, even with uncoordinated people such as myself! She regularly adapts the exercises to the individuals' needs so you get the maximum benefit, and gently encourages you to go that little bit further. So yes, recommended." Chris
"Farnham friends, go to this class! It's the best. That is all." Josh
