Ashford Yoga

Lorna is a Diploma qualified Yoga teacher affiliated with the British Wheel of Yoga. She teaches Hatha yoga for beginners to intermediates, restorative and gentle yoga for seniors and those with health issues, chair yoga to the staff and patients at the NHS, and she works in various gyms around Kent. Her classes incorporate body mind and breath awareness and a range of postures to work particular areas of the body. Lorna uses a mix of gentle and stronger sequencing within an alignment-focused vinyasa approach which allows for all the fun of the flows within a safe and sustainable practice.

Her classes are friendly and non-competitive and everyone is encouraged to work within their limitations with modifications and variations of the postures offered. She pays particular attention to alignment and the subtleties within each posture.

Lorna has been practicing yoga for over twenty years and is continually studying to ensure that her classes are always a revitalizing, refreshing and energizing experience.

Which class is right for you?

Gentle

Gentle yoga is accessible for all, no matter how old you are or whatever your physical ability. Perfect for the stiffer body or complete beginner who may be anxious to join a more general beginner’s class. Emphasis will be on safe and correct alignment with support and individual attention delivered at a pace and ethos to suit you.


General Beginners (level 1)

The poses are adapted for all capabilities and variations and modifications are offered to enable the correct alignment for each individual.  The beginners' classes are aimed at those who've never done yoga before or who are returning to yoga after a long break.


Beginners to Improvers (level 1&2)

This class is ideal for all students with some knowledge of yoga and would like to progress towards stronger poses or flow within a sustainable practice


Vinyasa flows (level 2&3)

This class is ideal for students who have some flexibility and strength. Students can expect to refine techniques, move towards more complicated flows and be introduced to 2nd and 3rd level poses.

Props are no longer shared so please do bring your own mat, blocks and belt if you have them and a small blanket or large towel.
