Heart Flow Yoga Classes in Derbyshire
Our weekly classes are suitable for beginners and for those who are already enjoying the benefits of yoga. Heart Flow Yoga teaches you to get in touch with your heart and to allow its gentle flow to guide you through a series of warm ups, asanas (physical postures), deep relaxation and pranayama (breathing practices). The class can be as gentle or as strong as you want it to be, with options provided for all levels of experience. This combination brings a life changing depth to the classes as we gently build strength and flexibility in the body, while bringing peace and stillness to the mind.
Tuesdays 5:30-7pm Stanton-in-Peak Village Hall

Please Note: I am on retreat in India until Tuesday 27th of February. While I'm away, classes will be covered by amazing teachers except for Thursday 22nd February where there will be no class in Wirksworth.

You'll find a wonderfully warm, bright welcome at Vishwam's yoga classes. ... Questions are always met with openness and clarity, any confusion is met with compassion and empathy, so that I never feel awkward about asking anything. Smiles, laughter and illuminating insights are scattered throughout. ... Why not give it a go, if it could be as easy and as pleasurable - and even profoundly revelatory, maybe - as that?

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I'm not very flexible. Is it ok for me to come along?
A: Yes! Yoga is a wonderful way to become more flexible over time. Every body is different, which is wonderful. Yoga isn't a sport or a competition. It's a chance for you to explore your own experience.
Q: I would rather have a one-to-one session. Do you do those?
A: Certainly! Please get in touch and we can arrange an appointment to suit you.
Q: What should I wear?
A: Loose comfortable clothing. Natural fibres are best. We generally do yoga barefoot to give a better grip, but warm socks and layers are nice for the deep relaxation at the end.
Q: Is it ok to eat before yoga?
A: Because we do a lot of bending and twisting, it's generally better to have an empty stomach. Ideally, avoid eating in the two hours before class begins. If you need something, a banana or a little juice can be good.
Q: Do I need my own equipment?
A: If you've got your own mat and blanket, please bring them along. If not, don't worry. We are well stocked with yoga mats, blocks and blankets. You may also want to bring a bottle of water.
Q: I'm pregnant. Is your class suitable for me?
A: Unfortunately no. You will need to find a pregnancy yoga class where the teachers know which postures and practices are best suited to you.
Q: I see all those religious symbols on the Heart of Living Yoga symbol, and I'm not religious. Is this class really for me?
A: The Heart of Living Yoga Yantra includes images of all faiths to show that they all point to something. We might call that the Universe, Nature, Love, Light, God or simply Life. We might not give it a name. How you relate to that is your own personal path. Heart of Living Yoga is here to support people of all faiths and none.
