I'm Gemma, thanks for visiting Purple Patch Yoga! The health benefits of yoga are undisputed. Recent studies have shown that yoga is as good for your heart (having profound effects on blood pressureand heart rate) as more intense cardiovascular exercise (yippee!). Yoga can help improve flexibility, strength and stamina. Maybe the best thing about yoga is the reduced stress levels and increased sense of calm and relaxation you'll feel after just one session of yoga.
Phoenix Yoga runs regular, friendly yoga classes in Cheltenham, Charlton Kings and Bishops Cleeve. We can also offer private classes for smaller groups or 1-2-1 sessions at a time and place to suityou. What is Yoga? The Sanskrit word yoga is often translated as meaning 'union' between mind, body and spirit. As a result, most students will say that a yoga class is much more than just another exercise class.
The practice of Yoga has long been known to be a good source for physical and mental health benefits. Today, perhaps more than ever the practice of Yoga is becoming widely accepted as a non religious,universal practice and a practical approach to good health and spiritual and mental equanimity.
Open Yoga provides inclusive community classes. Yoga improves flexibility, strength and relaxation as well as promoting a strong immune system and supporting the nervous system, digestion and generalhealth. Whatever your motivation for coming, you are welcome to join us at The Open House in Stroud.
Classical Hatha yoga, yoga for people living with cancer, pregnancy yoga and post natal yoga (yoga for mums and babies), in Bristol and Stroud, with Frankie Duggan. Yoga is a highly practical systemdesigned to bring greater balance and harmony into everyday life. By working with the body, using the breath consciously, and learning to observe our mental and emotional responses, we gradually become more at ease with ourselves and with the world around us.
Our yoga classes in Cheltenham and Tewkesbury have been running since 2006 and we like to think that those who attend see their yoga practice as an essential part of their weekly regime, an antidoteto the stresses of the working week and a little oasis of calm where they can take a little 'me time'.
You can drop in to one of our friendly general classes and if you like it - which I'm sure you will - you can make it regular 'you time' and benefit from reduced prices by taking out a block bookingof 6 lessons or more. You can also take it one step further by taking private 1-2-1 tuition or by bringing together a small group of your friends for a more bespoke class -it's a lot of fun and deeply rewarding! Have a look here and please do get in touch to find out more.

I offer group hatha yoga classes and individual tuition to men and women of all ages and abilities, in and around the Stroud Valleys and throughout Gloucestershire. I teach in a way which is clear,safe and accessible. Beyond the physiological benefits of yoga, I see the practice of yoga as a means to developing greater compassion and and self-acceptance. I practice hatha yoga within a context of mindfulness rather than Hindu texts and philosophy.
I started yoga in 2003 with a rigorous Ashtanga practice, loving the physical challenge of this style. I immediately appreciated the fun non-competitive self-exploration that yoga encourages, oftensurprising myself with what was possible. Although I still practice and love Ashtanga, I've broadened my yoga into other styles, now loving everything from an invigorating Dynamic Vinyasa Flow, calmer Hatha Yoga to restful Yin Yoga.
