Costs and how classes run

Join any time, space permitting and subject to booking. No need to wait for the start of a new term.

Trial session is welcome – £9 – see below for more information.

£45 pp for 6 weeks, paid from your first session. Pay by cash (preferred) or cheque. Pay in class.
The term fee of £45 runs consecutively and is due at the end of each 6 weeks in advance of the next 6 weeks, to reserve your space for as long as you wish to attend… simple!

Classes are run as you would expect from any professional activity club, college course or gym. This is a manageable affordable term rate. A simple term fee system means lower class costs. Equating to just £7.50 per 1.5 hour session with an established school and a long term experienced teacher, is excellent value. There are no lengthy contracts, you have motivation to attend, a guaranteed space each week, sufficient space for comfort & capped numbers for effective teaching… Just come and enjoy.

Can I do one class first, to try it?

Yes you can. A one off trail session is £9. Cash only. Pay in class. No commitment. Open to any new student regardless of whether you have done yoga before. Booking is still required, space permitting.

TRIAL SESSION PLEASE NOTE: If you are unsure a trial session is a great way to have a go, come and see what you think. However a space still needs to be available, subject to booking. Should you enjoy your trial session, please ensure you are in a position to continue from the week following. Places cannot be held for delayed start dates. Classes are normally fully booked at peak times, people may be waiting and people always want to join throughout the year.

While a trial is welcome it is only a taste! I recommend just going for an initial 6 weeks to form a fully educated opinion.

Do you work shifts?

You can alternate between one evening class (any one you decide) and the Wednesday afternoon class.

What if I can’t attend?

Awaken with Yoga offers a bonus system if you wish to take advantage of it.

If you can attend a class during the week but NOT your normal register class, you can switch to another session during that week, if you have an occasional genuine reason, e.g. family emergencies, parents evening etc.

If you cannot attend ANY class during the course of a week (e.g. due to illness), sessions can be made up by attending 2 sessions in any ONE week you decide throughout your personal attendance year – this is from the time you join to the same time the following year. It is an honesty box policy. You do not have to make classes up immediately, therefore there is no pressure. Doing more than one session of yoga a week is hugely recommended for working at a deeper level on health and well being, you will really notice the difference.

If you cannot attend classes, you do not have to switch sessions or make them up, the choice is yours – many simply let it go, it is part of the path of life.

PLEASE NOTE: Switching & making up sessions is NOT for the purpose of frequent work related issues or if you CHOOSE not to attend for any other reason, or override your class with another engagement of choice. Classes cannot accommodate this. I apply an honesty box policy to many areas of the yoga school in line with yoga ethics – please do not abuse this.

All spaces on classes other than your usual class are on a first come first served basis; normally a few spaces are available in other classes every week and most students are accommodated. Should you not be able to get into another class in one week, you can still bank that session and ask to book again another week and have two classes in that week.

Switching places and making up sessions are a bonus – not a right or guaranteed. Please consider: many exercise classes and courses charge a block booking but there will be no refund or there may be no classes to swap to if you cannot attend a session.

There are free personal weeks available after a qualifying period of attendance. You choose when to take them and what for.

There are generous summer and winter close downs in line with main / school holiday seasons.

How to book

Classes are popular and class numbers are capped for your comfort and effective learning; therefore you need to check space availability, to see when you can start.

Coming to improve your health and well being?

Questions relating to health matters are not answered on email, please phone. I am more than happy to help you.

Ensuring you get the most out of yoga is my main priority. You are under no obligation to attend if you phone me. Alternatively have a thorough read of this website; it might answer your questions – go to the About Yoga page. Again, if you are unsure please call me.

Why would you like to call?

People practise yoga for many reasons, as it’s a very healing practice. You may wish to ask questions in relation to a specific health matter personal to you, and to see how yoga can help your particular needs and how suitable it is for you. Please call if you are unsure I am more than happy to help you.
