Gentle Yoga and Somatics (neuromuscular re-education) is ideal if you have aches or pains from stress, injuries or poor posture. This work is also good for people who are very stiff or very bendy (hyper-mobile). People with back pain, sciatica; reduced mobility, people living with MS, ME, cancer treatment or other ailments of a longer-term nature will also benefit from taking these classes.
Fridays 10:15am Union Church; Saturdays 10:15am Haelan Centre
These classes are a progression from the Gentle Yoga and Somatics Classes, but anyone who feels comfortable with some standing, strengthening work as well as the more relaxed somatic floor work. This class incorporates some Anatomy in Motion practices and are a good choice particularly good if you have an injury or joint pain, but are otherwise fit and active.
Mondays 12pm One Yoga
This stronger class if for people with an established yoga practice who wish to go work in a more detailed way informed by somatic and functional anatomy principles. You’ll need a reasonable level of fitness. Planks, sun salutations and standing yoga poses are all included, but it’s not a flow class.
It’s fine to come along if you have injuries or pain, although be aware a somatics class may be more beneficial if you don’t find any improvement within a few weeks. As with all the classes you are invited to speak out and let me know if anything doesn’t feel right as you move through the postures. The Monday 12pm class is just one hour long and bookable through the One Yoga London, you will need to buy a drop in or five class pass from One Yoga to attend this class

Crouch End has a lovely village atmosphere due to the fact it has no tube station nearby. It is a lovely place to potter around after your class if you have the time.
However, it’s really easy to get to Crouch End from the nearby Finsbury Park tube and overground train station. Take the W7 or W3 bus from Finsbury Park.
Other overground stations nearby are Hornsey and Crouch Hill.
