Yoga according to the possibilities, interests and well-being of each person
FOR EXPLORATION & DEVELOPMENT
One to one sessions can be used to deepen and develop your understanding of yoga. This may involve postures and permutations of postures, breath work, or learning to chant or study relevant yoga texts. The techniques and tools of yoga are endless and you can develop and progress at your own pace.
This was how yoga was traditionally taught. If you want to explore and develop your relationship with yoga, with a personally designed practice to meet your needs and lifestyle, then this approach is for you. We draw from a varied tool box to meet your needs and interests.

I have been practising yoga with Gary for two years and I have also been on two retreats to Turkey with Gary and Zoë.
I attended Gary’s class on a weekly basis in Luton and always leave feeling relaxed and in good spirits, he is an excellent teacher and I try not miss his classes as I find them invaluable. I would recommend trying Gary or Zoë’s classes as you will not be disappointed.
Finding Zoë and Gary’s yoga classes over 10 years ago was one of the best things to happen to me. At a time of great personal change Zoë’s group classes provided some calm and focus amongst an otherwise slightly chaotic life. I have continued to attend different classes, workshops and weekend’s lead by Zoë and Gary, and I always, without exception leave the sessions feeling refreshed and revived. Their calming presence, non-judgemental attitude and kind spirits help to make their classes the best I have ever experienced.Jenny
I have been practicing yoga under Gary’s guidance for around 5 years and I cannot speak more highly of my experience. Prior to attending Gary’s class I naively believed that yoga was for the super flexible whose main aim was to master complex postures. However, thanks to Gary’s teaching my understanding of both yoga practice and theory has greatly improved, as has my overall wellbeing. The emphasis is on the importance of the breath which I have found enlightening and have applied to everyday life. As a result of attending Gary’s classes, I have seen great improvements in myself both physically and mentally. The main benefit of attending this class is the fact we are taught by an inspiring teacher who is clearly passionate about his subject and committed to making yoga accessible and achievable for all.Sam
Zoë’s calm disposition enhances her teaching. My practice has developed not simply with her guidance on the ‘poses’ but deepened with an emphasis on breath work and meditation. Classes are peppered with carefully chosen quotes, readings and insights into the theory of yoga and āyurveda, meaning by the end of the class, both body and mind have benefited from a ‘work-in’ as well as a ‘work-out’!Jennifer
