Yoga Classes

“I am really enjoying Monica’s yoga classes. So glad I am making the time to come along every week.  Love that it works on my strength, flexibility, relaxation and more. It’s exactly what I need in my life!”  Kerry

I offer group classes in local halls as well as online in your own home. All classes whether at a venue or online can be booked up to five hours before class starts through my booking system (subject to availability). Go to ‘Group Yoga Classes’ tab of this website and click the ‘Book Now’ button to access my booking calendar to see which hall based or online classes are available.  I also have a weekly update and schedule on that page as well as links to locations of the hall classes.

In addition I can arrange a 121 with you at your own home or for a group of your friends.  Contact me at karmatreeyoga@gmail.com for more information.

Why Practice Yoga?

My classes are suitable for beginners as well as those who have done yoga many times before. Many people think that they have to be flexible to practice yoga but much of the benefit of yoga is the practice itself and becoming more flexible over time. Yoga helps to relieve tightness in muscles as well as helps those who are already flexible.

  • Stress reduction – Yoga draws your focus inward to calm you and bring balance back in to your life.
  • Increased Fitness – improves flexibility, strength, range of motion, and better posture.
  • Management of chronic conditions – Yoga has been proven to help with a variety of health conditions such as, anxiety, back pain, asthma, high blood pressure, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and insomnia.
  • Weight loss
  • Strengthens core muscles
  • Improves concentration, balance and mental clarity
  • Increases energy
  • Improves overall well-being and mood.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’ve never done yoga before.  Are the classes suitable for beginners?

My focus is about bringing yoga to everyone whatever your shape, size or level of fitness. If you can breathe you can do yoga! It would be helpful if you could let me know a little about your current and previous medical situation so that I can suggest options if needed.

Do I need to book ahead?

A booking system was introduced in April 2020 for my online classes and this has been extended to my hall classes as they resume.  The hall classes will have a maximum number of attendees to ensure everyone has sufficient space to practice so make sure you book in plenty of time to secure your place. You can book in or amend a class up to 5 hours beforehand.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring your own mat and any props such as straps or blocks that you wish to use.  Wear something light and comfortable such as leggings and a t-shirt though you might want to bring some socks and warm top or blanket for relaxation.  Otherwise just leave your shoes at the door along with your cares, worries and other baggage!
