About Slow Yoga

Slow Yoga is yoga for anyone: not to build muscle or look beautiful, but simply to learn how to ‘be’.

If you’ve had a negative experience in a previous yoga class because you weren’t ‘bendy’ or ‘thin’ or ‘perfect’ enough, then Slow Yoga is for you.  In Sally’s classes you will learn how to find your own limits and explore your ‘goals’ in a way which is measured, calm, simple and effortless.

Sally Turner has been a yoga practitioner since her early 20’s. Ten years ago, at the age of 50, after an extreme ski accident when she sustained serious injuries to her neck, Sally switched from Iyengar Yoga to   Vinyasa Krama Yoga and began to recognise the full potential for Yoga as a healing experience. She rehabilitated herself and began her adventure into Pranayama (breathing practices for stress, anxiety and wellbeing); Asana and Somatics (movements and positions for mental health and resilience) ; Meditation & Yoga Nidra (guided meditations and visualisations to improve the connection between the body and brain)

Sally is currently studying for a qualification in Yoga Therapy with The Minded Institute in Camden, London, one of the cutting edge organisations in this field, combining ‘Traditional’ yoga practices with modern Neuroscience, Sociology, Psychology and Mindfulness.

ONLINE CLASSES

At the moment, Sally runs a friendly, inclusive one-hour class on Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 10-11am PLUS  a Monthly 2.5 hour Workshop on the last Saturday of each month.

The dates for the Monthly Online Workshops for the following 3 months are as follows: 25th July, 29th August and 26th September.

For those who are unsure about attending a class, Sally also runs 1:1 Yoga Sessions. In the past this would have been at the client’s own home but currently all sessions will be via a Zoom link. Please enquire via this website.

If you are someone who has just returned to work and may be interested in evening classes, please get in touch via the website here.

Sally offers a rewarding session – breathing and mindfulness are integral but she also helps us to achieve and understand yoga postures. I always leave the class feeling better than on arrival !

I find the exercises and advice that Sally gives really excellent for maintaining and improving my flexibility. I feel encouraged to exercise and breath at my pace with advice on how to improve my movements where I can and an acceptance of my limitations with appropriate advice so that I can stretch myself in the exercise without damage or discomfort. There is a range of ages and physical abilities in the class and we are all accommodated so both the very fit and flexible and those who are less so are able to feel they have achieved.
