,At Padma Yoga, I teach introductory courses, weekly classes, weekend workshops and two rather lovely weekend retreats each year. Classes are taught in levels, to help you develop your practice at a pace which is comfortable for you. Before you begin, it’s good to think about what you want from a yoga practice.

Is it to learn more about your body... alleviate stress, anxiety or depression... meet new people... address particular physical imbalances or injury... learn to meditate... or help manage a long-term health condition? Whatever you're looking for, yoga has a huge amount to offer. The best part, is that as our lives change and grow, so will our yoga practice.

If you're new to yoga, I usually recommend attending classes for a minimum of eight weeks, to get a feel for whether yoga is for you. You're welcome to attend a drop-in class before committing to a class pass. Have any other questions? Feel free to give me a ring, send an email, or use our contact form. I'm always happy to have a chat!

If you are in any doubt as to if this yoga class is for you, I would urge you to try it – you won’t regret it!

I am absolutely loving the yoga course. I really do like yoga and am finding it very helpful. I am so sad that you are moving away. I wish I had known you longer and found you sooner. You truly are an inspiration. Thank you again for helping me start my journey to being a better me.

Sian

Thank you for such an enlightening introduction to yoga, which I began only recently to ensure flexibility of an ageing body, but quickly realised that the time used for meditation was equally important for my mental health.

Lynda

Claire provides a welcoming, relaxing environment in her classes. She catered for our individual needs and was reassuring and positive throughout. I can’t thank Claire enough for helping me achieve the positive birth experience I longed for and can’t wait to do it all over again with her guidance and support.

Yoga Mama

I just wanted to say a personal thank you for the yoga sessions you’ve provided. I will always remember when I was really struggling and came to the yoga for mental health workshop, how kind and supportive you were.

Kirsty

I have thoroughly loved my Wednesday morning yoga for the last three years… learning to be kind to myself and much more.

Tracey

Thank you for the yoga/therapy when I really needed something to help me get back on the straight and narrow. I’m only occasionally wiggley nowadays and I can always use the skills you taught me to bring myself back on track again.

Shelley

I’d never practiced yoga before, but Claire assured me you didn’t need any experience and I soon found Wednesday nights a retreat to meet other pregnant ladies and practice really useful yoga positions that made me more confident in the run up to our baby’s due date. It’s a lovely class run by a lovely lady.

Yoga Mama

Yoga has really helped me with my fibromyalgia, depression and stress. I don’t believe I would have managed in another class or with another teacher. Thank you for your patience.

Sandra

Thank you so much, I have really enjoyed my yoga with you over the past few years. You have helped me in so many ways, my life has been enriched by being a part of your yoga family.

Barbara

A brilliant worthwhile class in a friendly welcoming studio, made all the more enjoyable by a lovely teacher. Thank you Claire!

Yoga Mama

Thank you so much for all of you wonderful teaching. I’ll never forget your unfailing enthusiasm, words of inspiration and many acts of kindness.

Philip

Thank you for all you have inspired me to be.

Liz

Not only was attending Pregnancy Yoga a great experience, but it aided an empowering, calm labour and a very content baby girl. Yoga babies = Happy calm babies!
I could not have gone through pregnancy so smoothly without yoga. Claire was amazing in every way. Very inspiring, supportive and just lovely.

Yoga Mama

I consider myself to be so lucky to have been attending your yoga classes for at least the last ten years. Thank you so much for all that you’ve taught me and given to me. Everything I have learnt from you has enabled me to be the person I am today.

Pam

Thank you for being a brilliant yoga teacher and guide. Over the last four years there have been some very sad times for me personally but through yoga and your teaching, I have learned how to ‘breathe’ through some of the moments, rise above others and just let some go!

Elaine

Thanks for teaching me how to breathe, slow down and take time in life. It’s been a fab experience.
