Gentle Yoga

Many people say to us “I’d like to try yoga but I’m too e.g. old/large/stiff/unfit etc…” Our reply is that yoga is for all, and after a few classes, or a foundation course, you should feel that you know enough to go to any beginner or general class. In fact, those who are stiff benefit tremendously from a regular yoga class, and always report that they feel better at the end of the class compared to when they arrived.

However, in response to those that feel uncomfortable going to a regular class, and would like a slightly gentler class to start with, we have designed this course especially for you!

Gentle Course Description

Jess-Wallwork-fullThe gentle course is a series of slower paced classes aimed at those who feel they are not ready for beginner or general classes, especially those who are stiffer, older or unfit.

Taught by Jess Wallwork, who has many years experience of teaching all abilities, and has a calm and gentle nature herself.

There are two gentle courses: Monday afternoons at 2pm and Tuesday mornings at 11.15am.

The courses are limited in size and booking is essential to secure your space.

What to Wear/Bring 

Yogawest is a fully equipped yoga centre, so you don’t need to bring anything with you. Wear comfortable clothes that you can move in; yoga is a barefoot activity (if you need to wear socks for a medical reason, please wear socks with good grip).

How to Find us 

Yogawest is at the very end of Denmark Place BS7 8NW, just off the Gloucester Road in Bishopston: walk down beside Bishopston Hardware. NOTE There is no parking and you can’t drive along Denmark Place, so if you are driving, park nearby (free parking in nearby streets). We have bicycle parking on site.
