Okido Yoga






Okido Yoga is a holistic, dynamic and meditative form of yoga developed by the Japanese master Masahiro Oki. His teachings bring together his deep understanding of the human body and mind through his wide study and experience of both western and eastern religious, philosophical and medical traditions. The physical aspect of the yoga practice is designed to benefit people within the context of modern daily life.

As well as modified versions of classical asanas it includes corrective exercises to address physical distortions, and strengthening exercises to encourage a strong 'hara' (centre of gravity) which all work to deepen our connection with our whole being, our Life Force.

Class content will vary from week to week but will typically begin with a warm-up and lead-up to asana practice emphasising the importance of co-ordinating awareness, movement and breath at all times.

Partner and group exercises may be included. Classes always end with a relaxation.

Hatha Yoga with JOANNE SUMNER

Lunchtime Yoga on a Wednesday (more details below)


Hatha Yoga is a beautiful and ancient tradition incorporating physical postures, breathing control, stretching, strengthening and restorative techniques to bring peace and calm to the body and mind.

Joanne’s class combine meditative elements with psychology, using her experience as a life coach and Reiki Master to bring healing and insight to what we do on and off the mat.
