General Yoga

Update 27th April:

Welcome to my online general adult yoga classes. I am running these four times weekly:

Mondays 10.30-11.30
Wednesdays 10-11.30
Thursdays 7.30-9pm
Fridays 10.30-11.30

The cost is £30 for a block of four weeks from Monday 13th April to Friday 8th May inclusive. The classes will run on Bank Holidays.  It's a flat fee and you can attend as few/as many of these classes as you wish within this time period. Please enrol on the class that you are most likely to attend regularly, knowing you can swap around sessions as you wish. I won't be offering casual payments for the online classes. If you join later than the first week of the block then the cost is pro-rata so please just check with me. 

Please join the yogaworks general yoga closed facebook group. If you are not already a member please ask me to invite you in. This makes it a lot easier for me to communicate with you and also for you to stay in touch with each other. I will be posting the links to the Zoom classes on this group and any changes. 

If you are new to yoga please contact me first before booking. You can attend a class for FREE then sign up afterwards if you would like to continue so contact me first and I can send you a health form to return to me before your first class as well as the link to the class you would like to trial . 

If I fall ill and have to cancel classes then I will post this on the  facebook group as soon as I can. I would in that event extend the time period of this block to cover any missed classes. If you fall ill I am sorry I will not be carrying payments forward or extending the dates of the block. If you join later in the block then the whole £30 is still payable. I will be aiming to post at least one recording per week of a full yoga session which you can access for a month to help with home practice or if you miss some of the live sessions. 

My aim is to carry on offering these classes one block at a time until such time that classes can return to normal. 

You wil need a Zoom meeting ID to join the classes. You can access these on the relevant facebook group or just e mail me and I can send them to you. PLEASE DON'T SHARE THE LINKS WITH ANYONE ELSE. 

Zoom is free for you to use. You will ideally need a laptop with a camera or a phone. A speaker can help you to hear me more easily. I will mute everyone once the class has started but you will have a chance to talk to me and others at the end if you wish. There is a chat facility too where you can type some comments/questions. 

If it's your first time using Zoom please test your equipment first. I start the session 10-15 minutes before the class start so you go into a waiting room then I can admit you. This gives you a chance to check that everything is working before the class starts. Please make every effort to join on time as it's quite distracting to admit people in when I am already teaching - but I do understand that equipment fails so will do my best to let you in. Sometimes internet connections go down so if you 'leave' the class whilst it's running again I will do my best to let you back in, but sometimes you may have to wait a few minutes. 

Create a lovely calm space in your home where you won't be disturbed. Try to have as much space as possible around your mat. Ideally a wall and/or chair nearby. A belt or scarf as well as a couple of blocks would also be great. 

See you online!

Enjoyable and accessible hatha yoga classes for all adults, men and women, beginners and experienced yogis alike. You work at your own pace so you are welcome whatever your age and level of strength and flexibility.

You will be encouraged to deepen your awareness of your posture and your breathing, to find ways to strengthen and tone, to improve your flexibility, as well as to release. There is always time for a good relaxation in my sessions but you will also learn practical tools to help you feel more balanced and relaxed in everyday life. 

We always have time for smiles and laughter too!

Ken - Friday Mornings

I’ve been going to general adult yoga classes with Belinda for nearly two years and have enjoyed every minute. She’s a great teacher, very in tune with the needs of individuals, and the classes are suitable for people of all ages and abilities. My flexibility, balance and core strength have improved enormously and I’ve found the focus on breathing and relaxation very beneficial. 

Lynda - Wednesday Mornings

Belinda has been my yoga teacher for over 7 years and I would recommend her yoga to beginners or the experienced looking for a new teacher, she offers satisfying classes to the young and old, fat or thin. Yoga is for everybody.    

Nigel - Monday Mornings

Having only taken up yoga a year ago as a 60 year old ‘sportsman’ whose body was feeling the aches pains and stiffness of age and wear and tear of old injuries, Belinda’s class has become a ‘must attend’ weekly session. My flexibility and core has really improved to the extent that I have taken up a new active sport, am cycling further and my full golf swing has reappeared ! Belinda is particularly conscious of old injuries and helps in their management. Great fun too!
