Description:

Slow Yoga was created to fulfil a demand for relaxation and mindfulness yoga, for people of any age or gender.The classes are run by Sally Turner who has been a yoga practitioner since her early 20's. It was only recently, after an extreme ski accident when she sustained serious injuries to her neck, that Sally discovered Vinyasa Krama Yoga. (Similar to currently popular Viniyoga and Yoga Flow systems)

It is interesting that this form of yoga has the same source as the more well-known Iyengar yoga and yet is so intensely different because of the focus on the breath in addition to the posture.

In Sally's classes you will be taught how to breathe again and will be given a series of gentle exercises which will cleanse and tone the body and help to clear the mind of stress and anxiety.

Opening Times

Opening Times: Sally's Classes are currently on Monday afternoons from 1.30-3pm
The classes are run by The WEA and cost approx 5.00 per session. However, they do require payment in advance. There is help for anyone on benefits. The next block of classes begins on 16th April for 6 weeks. You will need to contact Sally to find out about enrolment.

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.
