British Wheel of Yoga student diploma teacher offering beginners and restorative classes in Ashford town centre.
The beginners classes are adapted for all capabilities as modifications are offered in all poses to enable correct alignment at the correct level for each person.
The restorative classes are suitable for any age but aimed at people with limited flexibility, recovering from illness or injury or suffering from anxiety or stress.
Yoga is a type of mind-body exercise. A regular Yoga practice can improve strength, flexibility, and balance, reduce stress and provide many therapeutic benefits as well.
The beginners classes are aimed at those who’ve never done yoga before or who are returning to yoga after a long break. Yoga is a practice of personal growth and transformation and we work to our physical and mental personal abilities. The class size is never more than 12 people.
Restorative yoga uses adaptations of classic yoga postures during which your body is passively supported using props. This will allow your body to stay in the poses for longer periods of time (5-15 minutes depending on the pose and the individual). The focus is less on stretching and strengthening and more on releasing tension and increasing circulation and flexibility. There is minimum intensity and a regular practice can improve the immune system and restore the body and mind. The restorative classes are ideal for those with limited flexibility, stiff and aching joints, suffering from stress or anxiety or recovering from illness or injury. Places are limited to keep the classes small.
Yoga classes with Lorna are a true inspiration. She promotes a sense of calm and spirituality and has given me the confidence to feel good about my body. She tailors the poses to suit individuals and is aware of any adjustments for any ailments we might have. I am really feeling the benefits of her classes. They are relaxed and friendly and the perfect escape from the pressures of everyday life. I have a bad back, and shoulder and knee and I have felt very looked after as she suggests modifications at every step and uses props so that I can still feel the total benefit of the poses. Thank you Lorna.
Lorna is with British wheel of Yoga the most prestigious yoga organisation in uk and apart from that, she is a very kind and care about each individual in her group and when is come to teaching yoga she is thoughtful and intelligent. Namaste.
I am working with Lorna as a BWY student teacher also .She has a lovely thoughtful yet enthusiastic approach to her teaching which I’m sure her students will benefit greatly from.
A very friendly and relaxed class. Lorna is professional and an extremely competent instructor. She has time for everyone and helps her students with their poses if they need it. I find the whole yoga experience very beneficial and I would highly recommend this class to all.
I have no hesitation in recommending Lorna – her guidance and teaching-style are ideal for beginners; calm, supportive and with a sense of humour thrown in. If I lived closer, I’d live to come along!
Lorna has a kind and thoughtful approach to her teaching. She creates a beautiful calm environment allowing her students to find peace in class. Her sense of humour makes everyone feel at home. I’ve enjoyed my classes with her.
I am student on the same course with Lorna. Already you can see Lornas natural caring approach to her yoga emerging. Her style makes you feel reassured that she is there with you on your yoga journey. I would be happy to attend her classes.
If you have been thinking about yoga for a long-time but a bit nervous to start then I can recommend Lorna’s class. Thanks to her gentle nature and simple instructions she makes you feel at ease from the start. There is a lovely feeling in the class and the course is progressive but we never force our bodies . She keeps the group small so that she has time to explain and correct peoples posture. I tried a course much nearer to my house but I prefer to take the longer journey to Lorna’s class. I can highly recommend it and I feel lucky to have found it. I feel that it is actually doing me some good!
My daughter and I joined Lorna’s beginners yoga class together and thoroughly enjoy the small group and calm, mindful start to our busy weekends. During each lesson we are taught some new poses and Lorna is attentive to each of us to ensure we are following correctly and achieving the most benefit for our body from the pose. I would definitely recommend her beginners class to anyone thinking of starting yoga – you will receive a warm welcome.
Mats and props are available if you do not have any, but it will be useful if you can bring a small blanket with you.

I very much look forward to hearing from you.
