Do I need yoga experience to come to class?
No previous yoga experience is needed: you will access each class in response to the needs of your bodymind on any given day. Yoga is non-competitive & participation is about mindful movement, grace and flow: we learn to honour our limitations as well as our strengths. Simply come and have an experience!
Yoga White runs drop-in classes: we recognise how busy you all are & that you can’t always commit to that Wednesday or Thursday slot.
But we also recognise that some of you do commit to a course or a weekly practice and so Yoga White is offering a new way to book for classes & to recognise that commitment with Six-Class-Saver.
What is it?
Drop-in classes are £12 so six classes cost you £72.
The Six-Class-Saver is a pre-payment for 6 classes at £64- a saving of £8.
How does it work?
You pre-pay for six classes on the website (using Paypal) or by cheque/ cash at class.
You are then given personalised Yoga White vouchers. When you come to class you simply put your voucher in the pot instead of cash.
What if I miss a class?
Your vouchers will be valid for 2 months from the date of buying them so you have 8 weeks in which to use them up. After that use-by date they are no longer valid.
Can I use them at any other classes?
Yes. Your vouchers are valid for all £12 Yoga White sessions.
A present with a difference…
Why not buy a Six-Class-Saver for a friend?

CURRENT & UPCOMING YOGA COURSES
Strengthening the Pranic Shield
New Wednesday course begins 6th February
“For the times they are a-changing...” Bob Dylan’s words from the 60s reflected the time of social change that he experienced around him- a new energy in town: his music certainly captured the zeitgeist and how people were experiencing energetic shifts in society.
Yogi Bhajan (master of Kundalini Yoga) also predicted change – for these times we live in. Spiritual teachers coin it the Age of Aquarius: a time when we will be flooded with information, overloaded and feeling fried by the sheer scale of change and shift in our world. That time is now. We feel it. We experience it. It results in us feeling frayed, frazzled, hurried, disconnected, confused- and exhausted.
But we are all busy people. The busy-ness is not going to stop. We have households to run, businesses, work and children to attend to. So our aim must be to find stability and peace amongst that chaos.
We are at a time when, as a species, our sensitivity is developing (the self-sensory system) and we experience more overwhelm than ever. Many of us respond to these challenges by ‘numbing out’ with external stimuli- such as TV, alcohol, the internet, shopping drugs and so on. But there is another way!
This 8-week yoga course aims to develop our resilience and our ability to cultivate inner strength and balance, amidst the hurly-burly! It will help you:
- Learn to be less reactive to situations
- Connect to the touchstone of your inner teacher- less influenced by what’s going on outside
- Develop your capacity to withstand external pressures
- Expand into a greater consciousness- the eagle-eye view of the world!
- Cultivate the pranic shield- the effects of a strong nervous system and fully functioning glandular system
- Experience tools to connect to the deep peace that dwells within you
All welcome: no previous yoga experience required. These classes are designed with progression in mind but are drop-in classes so you can come & go as you please!
