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 practising yoga for over twenty years and is continually studying to ensure that her classes are always a revitalizing, refreshing and energizing experience.
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.
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.
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.
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
This class is ideal for people who have some flexibility and strength although this is not a pre-requisite as all stages of the poses will be offered. However students can expect to refine techniques, move towards more complicated flows and be introduced to 2nd and 3rd level poses.
So I’ve been reading a lot about the benefits of yoga for body and mind in various places for some time. When a family member mentioned Lorna’s Yoga to me I was intrigued although a little apprehensive having never been to a fitness class in my life. I found Lorna extremely welcoming and very knowledgeable. She guides you through each pose in an easy follow and structured way, offering valuable tips and adaptations for all abilities. Lorna also places a lot of focus on the mindfulness that comes from yoga. I felt so at home I immediately booked a block of sessions and I’m pleased to say I am now a regular. My job can be stressful at times and I have found Lorna’s classes to be a great way of unwinding at the end of the week. It feels like a piece of ‘me’ time that I can enjoy with Lorna’s guidance leaving feeling rejuvenated each week. I am already feeling the benefits in my flexibility and with my life work balance. I would highly recommend anyone to give yoga a try and Lorna provides a perfect environment in which to do so.
This clsasses of yoga were the one I felt tthat suit me in all aspects. It improved my quality of life in all aspects. Plus, it help me to relax and how to keep it throgouht the week. The yoga restorative has been helping me to relax, minimise my strees and improve my quality of life. The teacher is amazing, always available to correct our posture during the class, explaining the benefits of each postures. Moerover always welcoming everyone and she is always available to speak with studentes on the end the class or in the begining in case if you have any query. I advise everyone to try yoga class and see the benefits from this.
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.
