I have loved every class I've attended here.
I have learnt so much and take peace from each class home feeling fitter and more relaxed. the room, the teachers the whole environment has me looking forward to the next class. Thank you Jasmine Yoga.
We offer a range of yoga classes suitable for all levels of experience including Vinyasa, Yin, Restorative and Ashtanga.
These classes are hot and energetically strong, so require a good level of prior yoga experience as they often include a quick pace in transitions and invite challenge into the body and breath.
This is our most physically challenging class for 90 minutes. Rosie takes you through the Ashtanga set sequence, including flows and longer holds. You will be invited to be playful in balancing postures, binds, inversions and deep stretches to develop your practice beyond intermediate level.
Morning & Evening Flow
We develop Yang sequences into creative flows, to offer a heat building, energetic class. These classes are suitable for those advancing from beginners classes and intermediate levels.
We welcome you to our class if you are curious to begin your yoga journey and are keen to develop strength and flexibility and to progress into other yoga levels. You will learn core postures and popular sequences such as Sun Salutations, at a pace to help you learn and understand the benefits of yoga and techniques for safe alignment.
Yin Yoga offers an opportunity to hold mostly lying poses for approximately 5 minutes or more, enabling fascia to release in a slow deep practice. We invite a quietness into the body, mind and breath, in this very calm, introspective and personally enriching practice.
These are suitable for beginners as well as the more experienced among you who wish to move peacefully and thoughtfully through gentle flowing sequences, to stretch and find calm in body, mind and breath.
Sun Salutation Flow
We are pleased to offer this shorter 45min class twice a week through the Autumn, with Jo and Steph (a student yoga teacher). We will guide you through an energising flow, incorporating all three sun salutation sequences plus associated variations each week.
Moon Salutation Flow with Yoga Nidra
This is an inward and quiet flow, which presents a different experience to Sun Salutations. We move fluidly through beautiful sequences in a thoughtful manner, less heat building but still offering a thorough stretch! Additionally, we end this class with Yoga Nidra meaning 'conscious sleep' to quieten the mind, body and spirit.
Core & Stretch
This class is specific to those of you who are energetically active in other sports such as running, triathlon, cycling etc. The class is designed to provide an anatomical focus on specific muscle groups and joints which can become tight and vulnerable in sports.
This class is suitable for all abilities and experience, offering a peaceful, quiet stretch. We supply a range of props such as bolsters and blankets for support and to bring comfort in the poses, which are typically held for approximately 5 minutes.
Our Zen class is suitable for all abilities and experience and offers a peaceful Sunday morning experience. We flow through gentle sequences without the more physically challenging postures, and this class also includes approximately 10 minutes of guided meditation and visualisation.
I'm not sure I can express my love for Jasmine Yoga in a brief review, but I’ll try!
I have been attending classes here for two years and I’ve never found the motivation to continue anything for this long before. Jo is the most wonderful teacher, she instils confidence and strength in to you, which you are then able to apply to your practice. After each class I feel strong, confident and empowered, and I see improvements each week. I started as a compete novice and I now feel like my practice has grown so much and my mind so much calmer. Jo creates classes which are personalised to suit a whole variety of needs, from pure relaxation to building heat and strength in your body- there’s a class to suit all minds and fitness. The setting is idyllic and despite the season, the warm welcome you receive is so inviting. Winter darkness is complimented by flickering candles and fairy lights, with the sound of the waves lapping the shore, to balmy summer evenings, watching the sun set outside on the roof, there is even a dawn practice to start your day energised. If you are curious or even slightly nervous, just give it a go! You will not be disappointed!

What to expect:
This unique event is a collaboration between Jasmine Yoga and Andrew Lovell, renowned musician with M People and other international artists.
By using particular percussion instruments and his voice, Andrew will lead us to explore the sound of silence. Imagine the brilliance felt at the sight of a wonderful sunset or sunrise; it can be breathtaking. Either has the potential to energise us, to focus our mind or to envelop us in feelings of gratitude that we are present during a glorious splendour. When noticed, much benefit can be achieved by being quiet and tranquil with the rhythms of nature.
We will combine reflective, quiet yoga with the feelings and health benefits of simply being and appreciating space and silence. We will enjoy simply exploring the peace and calming effects of stillness and silence so often lacking in our busy, driven lives, to create a serene state of being.
Come and join us as we explore this very special and totally unique yoga journey into silence.
"Chakra focussed beautiful flow followed by peaceful stretchy Yin, what an absolute treat. Jo is an inspiring and nurturing teacher bringing new levels to class each week in the most beautiful of venues, bliss."
"Jo's approach is hugely professional and nurturing. It is her personal touch that people love, this is what brings them back, together with her teaching skills. and passion for yoga"
"I have been to several yoga classes in the past but nothing like this. The setting is perfect, candles and music add to the ambience. Joanne is very welcoming and her kind, calm nature guides you through the lesson giving you a greater understanding of yoga , you body and your mind. I look forward to each yoga practice!"
"My wife and I have been going since it opened in January 2017. My flexibility wasn't good with years of football and I was a bit reluctant in attending in case I couldn't fit in. However we have made lots of friends and Jo has always helped me and I'm delighted with how all the knots and tightness has gone.
I particularly like the Yin classes which are also a great way to help ease work related stresses. I'd recommend Jasmine Yoga to any men who want to become more flexible and less stressed."
"I'm loving Jo's classes, my body is left feeling invigorated and mind calm and at peace. Surrounded by a lovely, friendly group of people and blessed with a gorgeous location. Jo is a great teacher, nurturing, patient and fun. So pleased to have discovered Jasmine Yoga x"
