What to bring

Loose comfortable clothing should be worn; cotton tracksuit bottoms, loose t-shirt and a warm jumper for example. Feet will be bare in class but if you like, socks with a grip on the soles (such as ‘ToeSox’) may be worn. Bring warm socks to put on in relaxation.

A small number of mats, blocks and belts are available to borrow for the session but if you have your own please bring them.

Please bring at least one blanket.

A bottle of water and a sense of humour are also good items to bring along and if you can arrive at least 5 minutes before the class begins that would be great. We start and finish on time.

Anything Else?

Before class it is important that you complete a health questionnaire – this can be emailed to you on request. The form is necessary for your safety and to enable me to offer alternative postures.

Do not eat a meal for 2 hours before coming.

Classes are currently for over 18’s only.

Please don’t bring your children with you. I understand childcare difficulties but unfortunately I haven’t facilities to look after children.

Don’t forget that blanket – and bring a cushion too if you like.

I look forward to welcoming you to a class soon; I hope you enjoy your Yoga; smile, breathe and have fun!

Lovely words about my classes from students have said

(big thank you to all contributors!):

A fantastic end to the week, time to unwind and prepare for the weekend.

A friendly oasis of calm in a busy world, no matter how experienced you are. Thankyou.

Judi’s Yoga has made me physically and emotionally stronger It used to often take me hours to fall asleep but through Judi’s yoga I have learnt techniques to help me switch off within just a few minutes…

Judi is an excellent teacher with a great sense of humour, always quick to praise and encourage students to try that little bit harder.

A class with Judi is my weekly oasis of calm. I leave feeling relaxed, energised and inspired.

Fantastic friendly class. I can recommend the class to all levels.

A gentle hatha class well structured and delivered in a fun and supportive way.

Lovely, friendly, peaceful, relaxing environment.


Why do we end the class with Namaste?

This is a traditional Indian greeting – here is one translation (origin unknown).  I think it is beautiful!

My soul honours your soul.

I honour the place in you where the entire universe resides.

I honour the light, love, truth, beauty and peace within you because it is also within me.

In sharing these things we are united, we are the same, we are one.
