Yoga Classes

I hold small friendly yoga classes in Guildford and online with lots of personal attention. My style is thoughtful and reflective, yet friendly and interactive. I teach Hatha yoga and my approach is chiefly Scaravelli-inspired which focuses on breath, gravity and the spine.

This way of practicing yoga takes a clear focus and develops a patient and compassionate understanding of yourself and your body – working with yourself rather than against yourself.

Yoga is a way of getting in touch with yourself on many levels. Caring for yourself physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

Learning how to really listen to your body and become more sensitive to its needs. Developing an understanding and “good use” of your muscles and joints so that you move with freedom, grace and ease in your daily life.

The class usually consists of an opening relaxation, some simple movements to prepare the body, asanas (exercises/movements) and breathing with a specific focus, meditation and a final relaxation.

It’s suitable for different levels of experience as everyone is encouraged to work at their own pace and with close connection to their own needs.

It’s a slow and thoughtful form of yoga which develops concentration and focus and deepens your awareness – a bit like “meditation in movement” or “mindfulness” yoga. Tension is released, aches and pains are eased and there is an opportunity to drop into that deep quiet place inside you, where you can rest.

I teach how to work closely and respectfully with your body to bring health, balance, peace and awareness.

I have been doing yoga with Sarah for over 10 years now and it never ceases to amaze me how she makes each class totally unique. Her studio is an oasis of calm and tranquility where you can feel safe and nurtured under her expert guidance. Sarah’s yoga style is gentle and restorative, yet strengthening and powerful, as well as inducing a deep sense of calm. The visualisation tools and breathing techniques she uses are extremely effective at opening and releasing areas of the body which may at first appear stiff or resistant, safely and mindfully. I can honestly say that I have found Sarah’s classes totally life changing for my body and soul and I feel lucky to know her.

I have attended yoga classes with Sarah in her beautiful & relaxing studio for a number of years. The small classes, where Sarah can give everyone her attention as required, are both restorative & balancing – & I feel refreshed & calm as each session completes.
In the past year, Sarah has continued her classes online via Zoom. At first I had thought it may be difficult for Zoom classes to have the same serene atmosphere as that in the studio – but somehow Sarah manages to transfer this lovely quality via the Zoom classes – even though we are all in our own homes for this.

I have been practising yoga with Sarah for 19 years now and Sarah’s approach to yoga is different to any other class I have attended due to her knowledge of the body combined with her mindful approach and visualisation techniques. She enables you to discover and release tension, opening up flow in the body for a calmer and healthier way of living. Sarah’s 1:1 lessons were an essential part of my post-surgical recent recovery that I would thoroughly recommend to anyone needing to get back to full fitness.
