Hello and welcome to Birch Tree Yoga, a private studio (Shala) that has been offering Yoga classes in Wickham near Fareham, for 10 years now !
After years of teaching PE in Secondary schools & various forms of fitness and Yoga as evening classes, I opened my own studio at home in 2008.
My aim was , and still is, to provide enjoyable & inspirational Yoga in a beautiful tranquil environment that is... warm and conducive to yoga practice - something that many noisy & cold gyms and school halls are not !
The Studio offers a range of Yoga classes for different abilities and experience. All classes are taught by well qualified FRYOG* teachers with a wealth of knowledge,experience and a passion for yoga.
Classes are a Hatha /Vinyasa flow fusion, with emphasis on the physical Asanas to improve flexibility; general & core strength; co-ordination and balance and on breath awareness (Pranayama & Pratyahara - sense withdrawal) for relaxation and spiritual and mental well being.
Class size is relatively small (12 in a class) which allows for some individual attention so everybody feels nurtured and motivated to develop their practice at their own pace, but the group dynamic also inspires students to extend themselves.
Classes are sold in blocks of 7 sessions , working out at a very competitive £8 per class.
Due to the popularity and great reputation of the studio, classes are usually full, but you can add your name to the waiting list and then be just a step away from great yoga in a beautiful environment.
Classes run all year round so you are able to join whenever there is a space, or "drop in " whenever there's a cancellation. Shift workers catered for. Simply email or call for availability.
Private tuition,school visits ,Saturday workshops and Teachers CPD days are also offered.
