Energy and persistence conquer all things! 



Offering three forms of Yoga, Ashtanga, Dynamic Balance and Yin each of which provide a method to strengthen the body, mind and spirit.

Yoga is a skill that is developed over time. These forms are challenging but with patience, persistence, determination and LOTS of practice you will reap the benefits of a calm, focused mind and a strong body.

Started yoga classes as a way to help my ongoing back pain issues and I
can truly say your classes have made a huge difference to my life. Through
these yoga classes I managed to achieve a strength that offered the longest
period without pain I have ever had. The ashtanga style of yoga has allowed
me to improve flexibility and build some muscle in a way that hasn't
damaged my existing problem. Having never done any yoga before starting
this class I am now a total yogi convert!

I have been on placement year away from York this year and have struggled
to find a class that challenges and benefits in the same way, so I am very
much looking forward to returning in September to the classes I know and

The great benefit of learning Ashtanga on a One to One basis is that you learn at your own pace. Everyone is different, so a program can be designed to focus on whichever areas that you choose, i.e. strength, flexibility, stamina, a calmer mind etc. Eventual you will find balance in all these fundamental areas of health and reach your goal of living be healthy and strong in body and mind.

"Robs sessions greatly improved my flexibility, strength and not least my ability to focus.
In terms of training, I wholly support his initiative to bring yoga to enhance sessions. I decided to try yoga with Rob after subtaining an injury and found it a great help in addition to training. I felt stronger, leaner, quicker and energised"
