About Ashford Yoga

Lorna is a qualified Yoga teacher affiliated with the British Wheel of Yoga. She has been practicing yoga for over twenty years and is continually studying to ensure that her classes are always a revitalizing, refreshing and energizing experience. She teaches Hatha yoga for beginners to intermediates. Chair Yoga for  staff and patients of the NHS, gentle yoga for seniors and restorative yoga for those with health issues or recovering from illness. She also teaches at various gyms in Kent. Her classes incorporate body and mind awareness, a range of postures to work particular areas of the body and a mix of strong and gentle sequencing with movements led by the breath.

Her classes are friendly and non-competitive and everyone is encouraged to work within their own limitations with modifications and variations of the postures offered. She pays particular attention to alignment and the subtleties within each posture, and includes gentle and stronger sequencing to allow the fun of the flows within a safe and sustainable practice.

Gentle Yoga
Gentle yoga is accessible for all, no matter how old you are or whatever your physical ability. Perfect for the stiffer body or complete beginners who may be anxious to join a more general beginner’s class. Emphasis will be on safe and correct alignment with support and individual attention delivered at a pace and ethos to suit you.

General Beginners
The poses are adapted for all capabilities and variations and modifications are offered to enable the correct alignment for each individual. The beginners’ classes are aimed at those who’ve never done yoga before or who are returning to yoga after a long break.

Mixed Abilites
This class is ideal for all students with some knowledge of yoga and would like to progress towards stronger poses or flow within a sustainable practice.

Beginners to improvers
This class is ideal for people who have some flexibility and strength although this is not a pre-requisite as all stages of the poses will be offered. However students can expect to refine techniques and increase strength and stability within the poses. Students will work towards more complicated flows incorporating 2nd and 3rd level poses.

Live zoom lessons also available for those that would like to practice in the comfort of their own homes.

Email Lorna on contact@ashfordyoga.co.uk for more details, a health form and to pre-book.

Yoga classes with Lorna are a true inspiration. She promotes a sense of calm and spirituality and has given me the confidence to feel good about my body. She tailors the poses to suit individuals and is aware of any adjustments for any ailments we might have. I am really feeling the benefits of her classes. They are relaxed and friendly and the perfect escape from the pressures of everyday life. I have a bad back, and shoulder and knee….and I have felt very looked after as she suggests modifications at every step and uses props so that I can… Read more »

If you have been thinking about yoga for a long-time but a bit nervous to start then I can recommend Lorna’s class. Thanks to her gentle nature and simple instructions she makes you feel at ease from the start. There is a lovely feeling in the class and the course is progressive but we never force our bodies . She keeps the group small so that she has time to explain and correct peoples posture. I tried a course much nearer to my house but I prefer to take the longer journey to Lorna’s class. I can highly recommend it… Read more »

My daughter and I joined Lorna’s beginners yoga class together and thoroughly enjoy the small group and calm, mindful start to our busy weekends. During each lesson we are taught some new poses and Lorna is attentive to each of us to ensure we are following correctly and achieving the most benefit for our body from the pose. I would definitely recommend her beginners class to anyone thinking of starting yoga – you will receive a warm welcome.

So I’ve been reading a lot about the benefits of yoga for body and mind in various places for some time. When a family member mentioned Lorna’s Yoga to me I was intrigued although a little apprehensive having never been to a fitness class in my life. I found Lorna extremely welcoming and very knowledgeable. She guides you through each pose in an easy follow and structured way, offering valuable tips and adaptations for all abilities. Lorna also places a lot of focus on the mindfulness that comes from yoga. I felt so at home I immediately booked a block… Read more »
