Classes include yoga exercises/postures (asana), breathing practices (pranayama) and relaxation. This is not a one-size fits all sort of class. Classes are varied and never repetitive so you can develop your yoga at your own pace and constantly discover new practices and approaches with suggestions for modifications where needed.
What to bring/wear:
Wear comfortable clothes for stretching in yoga asanas and bring a non slip mat and a blanket for the final relaxation. Yoga is traditionally done barefoot.

“Thank you Caroline. The relaxation was so good I nearly fell asleep!” Sandra, June 2020
“I am enjoying being able to shut myself away and enjoy yoga. It’s good to get away from the news and reality of being unable to continue normal life.” MS, May 2020
“I enjoy everything about the classes: the lovely calm atmosphere in the room, helped by candles, lovely aromas and lighting; the way you put so much effort into every session. We always do something different in sessions and they are paced to suit all levels. I always leave with a lovely sense of well-being.” (Lynn, August 2019)
“I sleep better after the class; I feel more relaxed generally; I feel better as a whole.” (Sandra, August 2109)
“I feel calmer after the classes and the positive feelings I get from yoga continue into the week. Caroline is a great teacher and regularly brings in new ideas.” (Emma, Ipswich July 2019)
“Thank you for your attentive and wonderful yoga classes. You always create such a calming atmosphere with candles, flowers and throws and it is all these details which make a difference. The classes themselves are consistently excellent.” (Kristina, Ipswich, July 2019)
“My weekly yoga with Caroline is a little bit of “me time”. It gives me the chance to switch off for a short while. I leave the class feeling refreshed, calmer and more relaxed than when I arrived – and always sleep very well that night. The classes are suitable for all levels, as Caroline talks you through each pose, with suggestions for how to adapt each one to make them easier or more challenging. I would strongly recommend that you give it a try, regardless of whether or not you have practiced yoga previously.” (Nicky, Feb 2016)
