Dust off your mat - we're back! All classes require pre-booking, so please contact me if you are interested in joining - new students welcome! 'Yoga is a means by which we can remember our true nature as essentially joyful, peaceful and connected' (Donna Farhi)

Welcome to Yoga with Ali Rose – Yoga classes – workshops and one to ones in Chepstow , the Wye Valley and Forest of Dean.

Covid has changed all our lives, and new measures will be in place to allow us to return to face to face classes safely.  All venues have been checked for Covid compliance and I will ensure that class sizes and mat spacing’s allow us to practice with reassurance.  There will be no shared equipment so please make sure you bring all that is needed for class.  I look forward to seeing you!

When we increasingly ‘live in our heads’ (in what writer Philip Shepherd calls the ‘tyrants castle’!) we can easily feel cut off from our body and separate from the world.  Yoga is an  invaluable way to restore balance.

‘The body knows it belongs.  It is the mind that makes us homeless’  (John O’Donohue)

Weaving together Yoga with seasonal wisdom and philosophy, classes harmonise body, breath and awareness to restore  a feeling of wholeness and well-being.  Somatic Yoga is an excellent way to:

* move out of our habitual patterns of movement
* promote a balance of strength and mobility
* improve posture
* release tension (‘stuck stress’)
* calm the mind and focus attention
* find a renewed sense of joy and vitality

Inspired by my training in Yoga and Somatic movement, classes bring you out of your head and into your body.  Unfolding at a relaxed pace as postures grow intelligently from the inside out, these classes establish firm foundations of practice to those new to yoga but also offering a deeper enquiry for seasoned practitioners.  

‘Intelligent and soulful classes’

When you are no longer trying to ‘achieve a pose’, your Yoga can be an open ended enquiry …how does the body-mind organise (or dis-organise!) itself?

We have an opportunity to change deep habit patterns, physical and mental, to bring about change both on and off the mat. Yoga is a mind-body transformational practice!

The absorbing experience of movement and breath brings us present moment with our awareness, leaving you rejuvenated  and re-vitalised.  

‘The embodied present is the lived present’
