When & Where?
Beinspired runs weekly general active Hatha-vinyasa yoga classes for adults and teenagers at St Martin's Community Centre (upstairs) and slow flow yoga classes at St Martin's Parish Hall on a Sunday morning (ideal for complete beginners). You can view our monthly timetable below. We would ask that students turn up at least 5 minutes before the start of the class. It is also recommended not to eat 2 hours prior to class. Please leave your shoes either outside the room or to the side of the door - thank you!
St Martin's Community Centre
St Martin's Parish Hall
All classes cost £11 drop-in for adults and £6 for students, or you can buy a block of 5 tokens in advance for £45. Payment can be made by cash/cheque/online.
Because yoga is amazing! It's healing and just makes you feel better somehow, both energised and calm, stronger, and more flexible and balanced in body, mind and spirit. Yoga is non-competitive and all it asks of you is to turn up exactly as you are and practice, practice, practice…
What to expect?
To Emma yoga encourages the unfolding of the true self, of allowing the spirit to shine and the heart to lighten. On Monday evenings and Friday mornings, teaching a flowing and dynamic form of Hatha yoga, Emma encourages awareness of breath and energies of alignment so that one can experience the transformative, healing and uplifting effects of yoga for oneself.
Emma also teaches a Sunday morning slow flow yoga class, where the movement slows down a pace, and the session finishes with a Yoga Nidra (guided relaxation) - ideal for those who would like to enjoy an easeful beginning to Sunday including absolute beginners. Angel cards are available at this class too! Please bring a blanket.
As a Reiki Master teacher and a Holistic therapist, Emma teaches in a deeply intuitive way, allowing a nurturing and supportive environment which allows students of all levels to deepen their practice and encourages greater awareness of body, mind and soul and the need to take responsibility for our own health and wellbeing and the impact we can have on the world we live in.
What to wear?
Comfortable tightly fitting gym clothes such as t-shirts/vest-tops with leggings or shorts are recommended, together with a jumper and socks for relaxation. Please respect the yoga space when you enter by leaving your shoes by the door, classes are practiced barefoot.
What about injuries?
Yoga has been used since ancient times as a holistic method for preventing and healing injury and illness. However it is extremely important that you please let the teacher know, in confidence, of any injuries and medical conditions before the class commences.
What if I am pregnant?
CAN I BRING MY BABY TO CLASS?
Beinspired only accepts pregnant women with an existing yoga practice into our general classes. We can highly recommend classes with Anita Davies who is also a local doula, you can contact her email@example.com. It is essential that you let the teacher know, in confidence, that you are pregnant regardless of the stage of pregnancy.
I know what it’s like when you are really keen to get to a yoga class to support the post-natal period but on-demand breastfeeding (or bottle feeding) dictates otherwise. For this reason, I am keen that post-natal women are given the opportunity to bring their babes in arms (babies who fairly much stay in one place, so are not crawling or toddling) to our classes so that they can be fed as needed. The Sunday morning class may be best, certainly in the earlier post-natal period when you are healing from the inside out.
