Our aim…

Sally and her team are at your service! We aim to provide a supportive environment where you can learn and benefit from the practice of yoga whilst taking a break from every day. We see your yoga time as a way to invest time and energy into your wellbeing so you can enjoy life more by managing the challenges that life presents us with more ease.

We are also now offering one day workshop for qualified yoga teachers and yoga practitioners looking to go deeper into their yoga practice. Please see our workshops page for more information.

Frequently asked questions…

Which style of yoga do you offer?
Because our classes are small, with a maximum of ten people per class, we are able to offer a more bespoke yoga practice to our class members and cater for a range of physical challenges including lower back pain, sporting injuries, pregnancy, and stress-related conditions, to name a few. Classes are composed of a warm welcome followed by a gentle warm up, a Hatha Yoga Flow, and relaxation, all led by your breath so you feel calm throughout.

Can I attend if I’m a beginner in yoga?
Yes! We absolutely welcome beginners.

What shall I bring?
We provide all the equipment and water, so please just wear comfortable loose or stretchy clothing.

Do you offer one to one lessons?
Yes. Please contact Sally to discuss.

Michelle Newman 200hr RYT

‘My yoga practice began around twenty years ago but was intermittent as running and weights were my passion for a long time. However, after a number of injuries and a premature menopause in my 30’s, yoga became a significant part of my life and journey to healing and wellness. Yoga taught me how to come home to myself, how to connect with the breath and use both movement and stillness to align the mind, body, and spirit. I will forever be a student of yoga and a committed teacher’ Michelle.

Michelle completed her 200 Hour certified Yoga Teacher Training with Sally Parkes Yoga some time ago, and now teaches Hatha and Vinyasa Flow Yoga, offering a steady yet dynamic practice with grounding breath work. Students can expect an abundance of strategic anatomical cues together with offerings of key yoga philosophy.

“My aim as a yoga teacher is to make yoga accessible for all, to facilitate students tuning into their own bodies so as to respect where they currently are, physically and emotionally, while having the courage and determination to find their edge and progress.
