Yoga classes & memberships FAQ's

What to Expect

What can I expect at a Hatha yoga class?


Hatha yoga means the physical practice of yoga which is postures, breath work and relaxation. There are thousands of yoga postures, all designed to strengthen, stretch and detoxify the muscles, organs and other tissues of the body and to make sure that all the body's wonderful systems are working optimally.




What shall I wear and what shall I bring?


Wear comfortable clothes that you feel good in and can easily stretch in. Layer up so that you can remove layers when you warm up and then get cosy for the relaxation. Due to Covid 19, you are required to bring your own equipment. Bring a yoga mat - I recommend the YogaMad website for their equipment. you may also want to bring a yoga block, belt and a blanket.




Can I do it?


As there are so many postures to choose from, there will always be suitable poses and modifications for you regardless of what you think you can or can't do. The simple answer is, absolutely anyone can do Hatha yoga. I have worked with people from age 3 to 83 at every level of physical fitness, including those with cancer, ME, COPD, frozen shoulder and chronic pain.




What will we do and what are the benefits?


We will usually start off with seated or lying poses, move to weight bearing and standing poses, and finish off with mat-based stretching and strengthening. When the postures are done mindfully there is another added benefit - we develop focus, self-knowledge, release blocked emotions like stress, anger and fear from the body and we are able to make friends with the body. Although doing postures can help you to tone up and lose weight, It's not about changing the way you look, it's about loving the way you are. Through breath work and relaxation we can develop a sense of calm, ease and well being. In every session we will practice mindful breathing and try breathing techniques designed to improve respiration and induce a sense of calm, steadiness and well being. The session will end with a guided relaxation where you release unnecessary effort and stress from the body and mind.





Locations

Victory Hall, Westfield Rd, Uphill, Weston Super Mare, BS23 4XG


Located on a quiet street in the village of Uphill. You can find Victory Hall almost opposite the village shop. There's a car park for visitors and also street parking nearby. The hall is cool in the Summer and really cosy and warm in the Winter. It's a peaceful, clean community space where you always feel welcome. When you arrive for class, use the smaller door near the car park at the back of the building to enter the hall.




Hans Price Sports Centre Dance Studio (at Hans Price Academy), Marchfields Way, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 3QP


Easily accessible from the A370, Hans Price doubles up as an academy and a public sports centre, so when you reach the entrance you turn in at the sign for Hans Price Academy. The purpose-built dance studio is at the back of the building so it's quiet and spacious, and the atmosphere is calm. It's opposite British Heart Foundation on the Winterstoke retail estate, next to the Costa drive through. There's lots of parking in the car park so bringing your car is never a worry. ​Hans Price Sports Centre is part of Hans Price Academy on March Fields Way near the Winterstoke Retail Park. Turn left off the A370 when you see the sign for Hans Price Academy. The sports centre is on the left when you drive in and the car park is on the right. The gates to the sports centre open at 9am on a Saturday. Go through the open gates to reception and the receptionist will show you to the dance studio where we do our class. It's out of the way so it's nice and quiet!




Weston Museum,Burlington Street, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 1PR


In the heart of Weston's old town, Weston Museum is tucked away down a quiet side street and benefits from being an oasis of peace and quiet in the town centre. There is free parking in the evening so it's easy to bring your car into town. The museum is closed in the evenings, opening only for events, so there is a feeling of tranquillity to the building during yoga class.




Healthy Living Centre, 68 Lonsdale Avenue, Bournville, Weston-super-Mare, BS23 3SJ


The For All Healthy Living Centre Community Room is a large, spacious and warm venue for yoga. The HLC has plenty of parking and is in itself a hub of the community with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere and a community feel. As the Yoga courses run after hours, there is no intruding noise so you can rest and relax in peace. To get to the Community Hall, go past the cafe on your left as you enter the building and keep following the corridor around. It's the first door on your left.

When the postures are practised mindfully there is another added benefit - we develop focus, self-knowledge, release blocked emotions like stress, anger and fear from the body, and we are able to make friends with the body. Although doing postures can help you tone up and lose weight, It's not about changing the way you look; it’s about loving the way you are. Through breathwork and relaxation, we can develop a sense of calm, ease and well being. In every session, we will practice mindful breathing and try breathing techniques designed to improve respiration and induce a sense of calm, steadiness and well being. The session will end with a guided relaxation where you release unnecessary effort and stress from the body and mind. Mindfulness and Meditation You will be introduced to short 5-10 minute mindfulness meditations such as mindfulness of the breath and the body scan, a lying down meditation. Meditation will be presented in an accessible way which is doable for everyone. There is nothing mystical about meditation; it’s just simply paying attention.




What is Gentle Hatha Yoga?


Gentle yoga is a slower-paced, less physically challenging version of a mainstream Hatha yoga class. It is based on the poses of Hatha and incorporates all of the stretches and strengthening work needed to make it a complete yoga practise for health, strength and vitality. We move gently and mindfully and pay attention to the breath. Morven has years of experience working with seniors and those recovering from illness and injury. Gentle yoga is a good start for you if you are looking for a therapeutic movement programme and relaxation tools.




What is Restorative Yoga?


Restorative Yoga is a relaxing, meditative approach often using props such as blankets and bolsters, supporting the body to gently release instead of actively stretching. Sometimes we will be flowing through mindful movement with the breath; sometimes the postures are held for a few minutes. Being physically held in the posture and rocked softly by your breath allows muscular and emotional tension to evaporate, leaving you feeling clear and with a sense of heightened wellbeing. Suitable for those interested in improving body awareness and benefiting mainly from the stress-reducing effects of yoga practice. Bring a mat, blanket, cushion, belt and a yoga bolster if you have one.




What is Mindfulness?


Mindfulness is an attitude to life, meditation is the training we do to cultivate this attitude. Taken from the Buddhist worldview, Mindfulness has guided people over millennia to create a peaceful and meaningful life for themselves. The philosophies of yoga and mindfulness are historically intertwined, and an understanding of the Mindfulness model can help to enrich your yoga and your teaching. For many, Mindfulness with its uniquely non-judgmental yet compassionate view of reality, is the key to taking yoga off the mat and into the world. You will learn the concepts that underpin the theory, how to practice Mindfulness and to mindfully language and deliver your yoga classes

"Having practiced yoga for a number of years with a variety of instructors, I was delighted to find Morven's 'Yoga and Mindfulness' course to welcome me back to practice after a long break. My physical and mental health improved massively, and her gentle but specific instructions of where to focus attention brought a depth of awareness to my breath and movements that I had not previously achieved. A highly recommended, accessible, knowledgeable and passionate practitioner."
