Our Yoga Classes

Here are the different yoga styles we offer at Mudra.

 

Core Yoga (Yoga & Pilates for a strong core) with Joanna Ferret

Combining a Vinyasa style yoga class with some of the best core work exercises from Pilates; this class includes a mobilisation warm up, followed by abdominal work, core strengthening, stabilising the hip joint, toning the legs, working the back muscles and stretching out everything we’ve worked at the end. Pilates focuses on strength and rehabilitation and stabilisation. Leave with stronger abdominal muscles and a sense of achievement! Mondays

Early Vinyasa Flow With Meditation with Summer Rattigan

Enjoy sun salutations and a dynamic sequence of postures that will energise your week! This session finishes with a pranayama (breath practice) and a seated or lying meditation. Suitable for yogis looking for a dynamic vinyasa morning practice! Tuesdays

Gentle Hatha Yoga with Joanna Ferret

This class is aimed at the yogi who wants a more gentle, slow-paced, mindful Hatha class. You can come and enjoy breathing deeply and holding poses; almost using the class as a movement meditation. If you’ve walked in off the street and you’ve never done yoga before, if you did some yoga once, long ago but have forgotten how, if you’re returning to yoga following a long break from exercise or if you just want to see what all the fuss is about without any pressure to stand on your head or “look good” then this class is for you. Mondays

Grace & Grit with Gail Stephens

A deep and contemplative Yin Yoga practice, anchored into a slow, balanced breath, where postures are held in stillness for a longer period of time, allowing us to release and come within; accepting change from the inside out, from the deep connective tissue, to the emotions, to the mind. Thursdays

Managing Stress with Toby Oliver

Do you end the week on your knees? Stressed out by work, looking after your family or trying to do both? So tense and exhausted that you can't enjoy the weekend? If so, this class is especially for you. It consists of gentle Dru Yoga™, guided relaxations, stress-relieving breath work and very simple meditations. Sending you back to your desk feeling refreshed and with a smile on your face. 😊 Wednesdays

Meditation for beginners class “Mindful Moments” with Gail Stephens

Did you know that in the course of a day we take about 25,000 breaths, which adds up to an astonishing 675,000,000 breaths over the course of a life time? Did you also know that the way in which we breath can have a profound impact on our mental and physical wellbeing, changing the size and shape of the brain, and the rate at which our cells age?

Mindfulness meditation is proven to help us feel calmer, more focussed, able to make better decisions, more present and just happier. And all we have to do is – well nothing really.

If you want to find out more – or just to find an oasis of calm in the middle of your day – we are running lunchtime mindfulness meditation sessions. Why not come along and give it a try. Tuesdays from 25th June 2019.

Mindfulness Yoga with Efua Uiterwijk

The class will be focussed on mindfulness yoga, how to take that off the mat and into other areas of life. Thursdays

Vinyasa Flow with Joanna Ferret

This class is aimed at people who prefer a more dynamic moving class. We move slowly to start off with and break down the poses we are ‘flowing’ through, so this slow flow is suitable for beginners. The type of people who would enjoy this class are those who enjoy movement, especially beneficial for dancers who want to bring a fluid, strong, graceful energy to their performances; flowing with yoga is a dance in itself. Whilst the final flow section of class can be a faster pace, this is a very inclusive supportive environment where you can take any variation you need. Mondays

Vinyasa Flow with Summer Rattigan

This evening session will help you develop your postures and bring a deeper awareness to your movement, whilst connecting the mind, body and breath. You will enjoy stillness and relaxation through meditation and breathwork / pranayama - all in preparation for a good night’s sleep! Suitable for yogis looking for a dynamic vinyasa practice cushioned with breath work and relaxation. Tuesdays

Rock, Run, Yoga! with Joanna Ferret

A 90 minute class aimed specifically at climbers and runners. This class will benefit anyone, but it is advised that you have some other kind of physical practice in your life. Whilst enthusiastic beginners to yoga are welcome to come move with us, this class can be challenging on upper body and leg strength (the two main things our climbing & running buddies need). As well as all round core strength. The Pranayama work we’ll do in our flow section will assist you in your chosen sports to perform better off the mat; be that on the climbing wall or running your favourite trail. Tuesdays

Slow Flow Hatha Yoga with Gail Stephens

A mindful practice combining slow, graceful Hatha Flow and deep relaxation, allowing you to let go and find your breathing space, so that you feel calm, focused and energised. Wednesdays & Fridays

Yin Yoga with Victoria Nauen

Yin yoga is based on the Taoist concepts of yin and yang. Yin is a slow-paced style of yoga with postures that are held for long periods of time. Yin yoga poses aim to apply moderate stress to the connective tissues of the body, such as the tendons, fascia, and ligaments, with the aim of increasing circulation in the joints and improving flexibility.
