All the general classes contain students with varying levels of suppleness, fitness and experience. Physical practices are taught in stages and students are encouraged to stay at the optimum level for them week by week. All general classes include an hour of asana (the movements/postures) and some breath awareness and pranayama. Both classes then continue with a 30 minute deep relaxation element which will involve breath awareness, Yoga Nidra (deep relaxation) and sometimes meditation. People can opt to attend the first hour of the live online class  (if they have limited time available, for instance) leaving before the deep relaxation part, which they can do later from the audio recording.

At the moment I am teaching two “general classes” live on Zoom and via audio recording. Luckily the way I teach (and have done for 20 years) is very well suited to online or audio. I teach by verbal instructions, only needing to demonstrate occasionally, whilst students stop their practice to watch. This means you are not trying to do your yoga practice and watch the screen at the same time. During the live online classes, I am watching you, so I can see if I need to rephrase the instructions for further clarity or give supplementary instructions. With the audio recordings, you will have watched the videos before the class or can stop to watch the videos again if you need further clarification.

It is best to speak with me about which class would suit you best.

“I have found the live online classes really good. I find it helpful to set aside a specific time each week and I look forward to it. It is encouraging to see you and to see other people and have a sense of doing the class together, especially at a time when social contact is so limited. I found the Zoom technology pretty easy but was already using it for other things. There isn’t anything I’ve disliked about the online classes.”

And here is some feedback about the audio recordings and live online classes:

“I value being able to choose the type of class I want to do.  If I’m feeling exhausted and/or anxious, the restorative or less physically active class is great, otherwise I continue with the main class. “

“Just to let you know I have done the first lesson and enjoyed it – even the noisy rain! It was like soothing balm in the most bizarre of times.”

“Thank you so much for these on-line sessions – just about to do the second one now. I found it so useful last week . It’s a slightly strange experience doing it alone in my front room but still lovely.”

“I don’t know what I would have done without your yoga classes – they have helped me to cope during difficult times.  Thank you!”

“Thank you for all the work you’ve put into recording the online lessons,
it is a great help and I would be very sorry to have to miss the classes
for several months until lockdown can be eased.”

“Thanks. It’s really great having all this.”

“Thanks for this Rebecca. Just finished your mindfulness meditation as I was aware my BP was rocketing and needed to get grounded. Also enjoying Tara Brach- thanks for sharing.”

“Thanks for the online class – very useful.”

“I enjoyed my yoga session this morning and aim to continue to do one daily – I need to get my toes moving!” 

“Many thanks for the classes, they’re great.”

“I really enjoy the audio classes and find them easy to follow.  The demonstrations are useful and clear.” 

“Thank you again for the wonderful online classes. Despite not being as busy as usual, it’s still such a boost to stop for a while and have a class.”

“Some weeks I’ll complete a couple classes, other weeks I might only manage one.  Having access to classes when I want/need them is great.”

“I have really enjoyed the audio classes, very clear and the little videos are really useful. I have valued the ability to do the classes at a time of my choosing – often between 7 and 8 in the morning. I am retired and so daytime suits me. Thanks for all of your effort in putting the audios together, I have found them lovely to use.”

Her teaching is really well-informed by current yoga theory but she gives her own take on things which is always refreshing and relevant to our busy lives. Workshops which are combined with her partner Micks famous cinnamon buns are a real treat! Thanks Rebecca!"
