This class is designed to be a safe and nurturing space for teens. Asanas are chosen to release tension, to slow down and connect with their breath. Partnered asanas create patience, human connection and to emphasise the present moment. Improving their focus and bringing a healthy awareness of their body and mind can be an important tool for teens to navigate our fast-paced, competitive world.
Is a class for those who are new to yoga or who practice at home but want some company.
Asanas are sequenced a little slower, they can flow or be static, giving the student the chance to feel the shape.
Breath work is encouraged throughout the session to achieve a grounding experience. The physical benefits of a regular yoga class are increased muscle strength and tone, improved bone density and reduced inflammation of joints.
The men's class is a chance for to practise yoga within a small group. The intention is not on competing for flexibility, but to focus on strengthening the hips, back and core.
The sessions are always designed to encourage relaxation and a little bit of time out.

Yoga for Kids...
Charm shares yoga within nurseries and primary schools.
Yoga for kids is fun and creative. From the age of 2, children can explore different asanas that help develop balance, coordination, motor skills and bone density. Working with a partner brings trust and sensitivity. Drawing attention to their breath plants the seed of inner and outer connection.
Testimonial from Archer Academy:
"Charm came into school to deliver her Teen Yoga programme to a group of Year 11 students preparing for their Summer exams. Over the course of 12 weeks, the key focus was relaxation and well-being, aimed to combat exam stress. This was exactly what the group needed and they really felt the benefits. They reported finding more perspective, trusting in their methods of preparation and the importance of investing in self-care strategies."
Testimonial from Coram's Fields Nursery:
"The children at our nursery absolutely love Charm and her yoga sessions. She makes them super fun and easy for the children to understand and join in with. What is great is she is able to cater them to slightly different age groups/abilities which means all the children can benefit, and they are really creative. We really noticed such a difference in our children’s physical development, wellbeing and behaviour after just a few sessions."
Corporate classes are designed to develop the range of physical movement in specific areas such as hips, back and the core; as well as relaxation time for the well-being of staff. Asanas are modified to suit all abilities because yoga is designed for everyone! The mental benefits are better concentration, patience and a general feeling of ease.
