Vinyasa with Georgie Mcloughlin | Tuesdays | 10-11am | Beginning April 3rd
You will probably recognise Georgie from our front of house staff. She's now joining us as a teacher with her first class on April 3rd. We highly encourage you to try it out--she's great!
A playful vinyasa flow class to give the body, heart and mind a reset and reboot. Open to all levels, perfect for beginners or more advanced practitioners, for those who want a challenge and those who need a rest- the class is designed to be as up tempo or mellow as needed with options and modifications to strengthen a physical practice, or calm a busy mind. It is a light hearted class with a playful edge that meshes practices and teachings from the traditional yoga lineage with contemporary lifestyle.
Pilates with Chloe Hudspeth | Fridays | 10-11am | Beginning April 6th
You asked--we listened. By demand, we're now offering more Pilates! Starting April 6th, Chloe will be teaching another Pilates class for your enjoyment.
Pilates aims to increase strength & improve mobility in key areas of the body, including abdominals, glutes & back. Hone your 'core' skills, build stability and support with our mat Pilates classes.
Qi Gong with James Thirlwall | Mondays | 10:30-11:30am | Beginning April 9th
James will be teaching basic internal cultivation practices, known as daoyin, from the Chinese medical tradition of Yin Style Bagua.
You will learn breathing, standing meditation, Qi storing, building and sensitivity practices, and other daoyin for developing deep health and body awareness. The practices form a series of methods that can help you cultivate harmony within and without. The methods are simple to follow, accessible, and easy to continue at home if you are seeking to establish a self-practice.
Vin & Yin with Venetia | Fridays | 8:30-9:30am | Beginning April 13th
Most of you know Venetia, she's been teaching with us for a long time. She'll now be adding another one of our favourite classes to the timetable on Friday mornings: Vin & Yin.
A fiery vinyasa flow, balanced out with some longer held more relaxed poses. This class is about strength and ease, finding the ease in the strong yang style vinyasa and the strength needed to let go and find peace in deep yin poses. Open to all levels, beginners welcome.
In February, Adam and Miranda went along to Adult Mental Health First Aid Training with our amazing charity partner, Oxfordshire Mind. Yoga Quota is committed to making sure our teachers have training that helps support the teaching that they do both in the studio and for our more vulnerable clients. Here, they share their experiences of the training!
Pregnancy is easily one of the most transformative times in a person’s life: you’re growing a whole other person, which is equal parts mind-blowing and thrilling. At Yoga Quota, we know that there is no ‘right’ way to do pregnancy. We thoroughly acknowledge that everybody is different before pregnancy, which follows through into each person having their own unique experience of pregnancy.
Here at Yoga Quota, we’re guided by the principle of making yoga more accessible to everyone, we do this through our amazing Badgeholders who commit to spread the benefits of yoga in their communities. This ranges from teaching classes for people with mental health issues, to a wide range of people with disabilities. A lot of our charity classes are chair yoga classes.
Another way we can make yoga asana practice more accessible is through using other supports, like a wall.
