Please don’t come to class if you or a member of your household are displaying any symptoms of covid 19 or have come back from any country where you are required to quarantine.

Classes include yoga exercises/postures (asana), breathing practices (pranayama) and relaxation.   There is plenty of variety allowing people to stay interested and develop their practice gradually. This is not a one-size fits all sort of class. I can give suggestions for modifications where needed.

Please wear comfortable clothes for stretching in yoga asanas and bring a non slip mat and blanket or warm clothing for the final relaxation.   Yoga is traditionally done without shoes.


“Really enjoyed the session which was helping with back problems and the relaxation.  Thank you.  So much appreciated.”  (KD, Ipswich,  May, 2020)

“Thank you very much for the weekly yoga sessions, they are very much appreciated.  The demo videos work really well, but the audio is great – it’s handy to be able to pause and resume and your voice comes across so gentle and relaxing on the audio recordings.   The evening practice you sent a few weeks back is lovely, really relaxing to do shortly before bed.”  (Wendy, Claydon, April 2020)

“I have noticed that is is now easier to bend down and get in and out of cars. I love the relaxed atmosphere where people of all abilities are welcome and can improve at their own pace.”   (KJ, Ipswich, February 2020)

“I do yoga to retain muscle strength and muscle and joint flexibility. The classes achieve this and also improve sleep on the night of session.” (Alison, Ipswich, July 2019)

“I love the variety.  It makes it fun and interesting.” (Fiona, Ipswich, July 2019)

“Since having the privilege of Caroline’s yoga instruction in Ipswich 6ish years ago, I have not been able to find a more wholesome session anywhere in the UK. She lights the room gently, offers calming music and her tone is meditative. Caroline is personable-she suports each of us to develop at our own individual pace and is emotionally supportive as well as physically. We always desperately look forward to returning.  I cannot recommend her sessions enough.” (Alexia, Ipswich  31/1/18)

 ” I love your yoga and hate to miss a class, I like the way you always try to do something different and give us lots of information so we can make progress. I have never felt as good as I do now.”  (Sarah, April 2017)

“You are a true inspiration, always allowing people to feel included whatever their level of ability (which is not always the case with other yoga teachers!)” (Kate)

“Yoga has changed my life, as it helps me switch off from stresses at work. It makes me feel more positive about myself and life in general.” (Christina)

“Since starting Caroline’s yoga classes in the summer I have noticed huge benefits with my lower back issues.  I have noticed my strength and suppleness returning and thoroughly enjoy them.  Caroline is very considerate to all abilities and encourages you to reach your personal goals  without reference to anyone else.” (Katy C)
