Adult Group Yoga Classes Cornwall

Vinyasa Yoga for Strength and Mobility

Tuesdays 6-7.15pm in 6 week terms, Porthtowan Village Hall

2019

Term 1: 8th Jan – 12th Feb

Term 2: 26th Feb – 2nd April

£39 for 5 classes in one term, £70 for 10 classes – must be used within the 12 weeks, ending 2nd April. Missed classes are not transferrable between the terms but you have 6 weeks, in which to use 5 classes, when booking a term. 

£9 Drop-In, if space on the night. £7 for extra classes if you have already paid for 10. 

These classes are a fun but focussed, flowing combination of traditional Vinyasa style sequences, plus functional movement and conditioning, that builds strength, as well as flexibility. A ‘Level 2’ class, meaning they’re not designed for complete beginners, and although the intention is optimal functionality over fancy poses, there is always an element of challenge, with advanced posture options. Reasonable health and fitness and some yoga experience required, otherwise open to all! 

Optional: arrive at 5.45pm to start your own self-practice warm-up or mediation. Regular students will know what this is, new students I will give you a warm-up routine. 

Please arrive at least 5 minutes before start, up to 15 minutes before. New students will need time to discuss health and experience. Wear something not too loose but easy to move in. Please bring your own mat and props.

Vinyasa, Yin and Myofascial Release at MMI, St Agnes

Sunday 27th January, 24th February, 24th March

9am – 11am

£16

£45 pre-booking all 3

My favourite combination of dynamic Vinyasa yoga sequences, relaxing yet releasing Yin postures, and deep tissue myofascial release work, in another 3 different Sunday morning sessions.

Open to everyone – particularly beneficial to athletes.

Using myofascial release techniques, we start to break down deep set tension, which is so useful to do in combination with stretching. Yin poses wake up the body slowly, with the potential of achieving a deeper level of release than more dynamic sequences. Flowing Vinyasa sequences to strengthen, mobilise and find focus and ending with relaxation. In my opinion, the perfect Sunday morning practice!

Reasonable health and fitness and some yoga experience required, otherwise open to all!

This was my first course of yoga and I am a notoriously awkward student but Helen was superb. A calm composure allows her to relate to all levels in the group and centres the session into a relaxed space. Instructions are clear and concise and time is also taken to touch on the origin and meaning of poses. I find that I have gotten so much more from these sessions than I first intended and strongly recommend Helen for anyone new to or practiced in yoga. - Bryan, Cornwall

Testimonials

Our students say

Andy, Gig Rower, Porthtowan

I have been a pupil of Helen’s for a while now, firstly on a 1 2 1 basis, then in her classes at Porthtowan Eco park. I have wanted to give yoga a try for a long time and I’m not sure why I haven’t sooner, I wish I had. I have found the teachings of Helen to be one of the best workouts on an all round physical and holistic level around.

I am a gig rower and terrible surfer and not flexible in the slightest. I have found the Vinyasa Flow Yoga taught by Helen to be relaxed but definitely pushes you and has loosened certain areas and worked parts of me that I haven’t felt before.

It has given my rowing technique a massive new dimension, due to better core strength and flexibility, my reach and pause has improved, I feel I can use that to project more power into each stroke, but making each stroke more efficient as I’m not rushing and relying on brute arm strength. I feel far more relaxed when rowing and this has shown in the timing within the gig.

Frances, Isle of Tiree

I was lucky enough to be living on Tiree when Surf Tiree and Helen Clare Yoga held their 2015 retreat offering twice daily yoga classes over two weeks.

Attending Helen’s classes invigorated my yoga practice and left me feeling strengthened and refreshed. Yoga helps you to get through busy times; the busier life feels, the more a yoga class can give you a break and a boost.

I found that the pace of Helen’s yoga classes suited me and that the balance, of the strength building poses, along with work on flexibility and opening was carefully planned for each class and delivered to us in a kind and professional way.

Helen is a full time yoga teacher and this commitment shines through in her teaching. The pace and flow of the classes was faultless. The level of personal attention was generous and I found that the adjustments Helen made when we worked deeper into poses were really helpful.
