The yoga we practice is based on the Ashtanga Vinyasa system. We work dynamically moving from posture to posture in a meditative sequential flow, with an emphasis on the breath, correct technique and alignment. We run different types and levels of classes to cater for all our practitioners.
In our meditation & relaxation class, we learn different techniques through the traditional Practice of Yoga that help us to find & observe stillness in our minds and also experience therapeutic restfulness and relaxation in the body. Each week we hold the same format, half in half of meditation and relaxation but we vary the techniques so you can build a repertoire for your home-practice. This is a beautiful class, and suitable for all levels of practitioner. See you there. Om Shanthi.
Core strength is vital for the health, mobility and support of the body. This class is inspired by some of the physical aspects of yoga. We work with the repetition of various postures in conjunction with the use of weights, resistance bands and gymnastic balls to build awareness and power in the abdominal muscles and protection for the spine.
In our pregnancy yoga class we focus on preparing the body-mind system for childbirth and beyond! We work safely into both challenging & gentle postures which increase pelvic & abdominal strength. We learn steadiness of the breath and we cultivate the awareness needed to be as present as possible during this important and beautiful chapter of female life. Students of all trimesters and levels are welcome.

"Yoga is a constant challenge, as is life. With practice and commitment we find our strength, our grace and above all our awareness."
"I am excited about my teaching and feel both humbled and blessed by the yoga in my life. My teachers, students and personal practice continue to show me that learning yoga, and indeed learning anything, is an infinite process. Sometimes we feel as if we take steps back because of injury or circumstance but it is our acceptance of our capacity for evolution and change that brings us closer to our enlightened selves.
At The Yoga House we learn and practice together. We have regular classes and workshops all through the year and welcome new students of all levels and ability. Namaste" - Rachel Beare

"It is important to remain the student even when teaching to prevent complacency and to allow freshness of mind and body to prevail. The level of education of a student can only raise when the teacher continues to actively study." - Rachel Beare
