"Just completed beginners' yoga class, so pleased I could actually do most of the stretches, but learned loads of new ideas to release tension in your body, and the yoga ethos just seems to put your mind in a really tranquil place. Never done it before - you should try it!"
"We can't thank you enough Helen for running the Yoga course at Co-Lab for the staff team. It had such a huge impact on us all and gave us the time out from our busy jobs. We all left each week floating!
Great skill in including everyone of varying level and flexibility! Thank you so much."

What will the class be like?
This class playfully weaves together traditional aspects of Hatha Yoga; gently warming up the body in preparation for sequences of physical postures (Asana), alongside breathing techniques (Pranayama), chanting (Mantras), Yoga philosophy, and relaxation (Yoga Nidra). Each session is delivered with softness and humour and is underpinned by the core foundations of approaching the practice with ‘steadiness, comfort, and ease’.
The overall aim of the class is to bring our attention into the present moment through synchronised breath awareness and movement, encouraging balance and harmony between the physical, mental and emotional, resulting in a sense of inner calm and peace.
Each session will close with an extended relaxation, ensuring you feel re-energised for the weekend!
Who is the class for?
Everybody! The perfect way to start the weekend, this class is suitable for everybody (beginners and long-term practitioners welcome!).
Small class sizes ensuring you feel safe and supported throughout each session - booking is recommended.
