Good Morning Yogis, and so given the guidance given to us from the Prime Minister yesterday, I have taken the decision to suspend all classes from today.
Your health & safety and that of your families (& of course mine) is my primary concern.This must take precedence over everything in these frightening times. However important or beneficial yoga is this virus is unknown & so we must follow the “Social distancing ” that is being advised.
This is going to be a lonely & scary time for us all but you can stay in touch by following BIRCH TREE YOGA STUDIO on Instagram & Facebook & joining in the LIVE classes that I will be holding for members of the private Facebook group ( subscription £10 per calendar month)
Looking after your mental health is vital too, do take a break from the news at times, its Spring – in good weather get out in the garden, watch the birds , do some gardening, some cathartic Spring cleaning.
Finally, this is just Au Revoir  – I will re open as soon as I feel its safe for us all.Until then stay safe, stay strong and STAY HOME !
                                            “This too will pass.”


                          “BLOKES BASIC YOGA”     A down to earth introduction to Yoga.

WHEN ?          SAT 7th & SAT 28th March 9.00-11.00am       cost £30.
🤔WHY ?          Yoga will help … prevent sporting injuries..improve flexibility, balance & muscle…relieve stress  and calm the mind .
👦FOR WHOM ?    This short intense course ( 4 hours in total ) is aimed at guys of all ages, sizes & levels of flexibility, who’d like to try yoga but may feel a bit awkward or too embarrassed to join a regular class.
🧘‍♂️ WHAT WILL WE DO ?   We will cover the basic history , ethos & etiquette of yoga, some classic poses, simple breath- work and relaxation. Then armed with this knowledge you should feel confident enough to attend a class , do some home practice or just understand what the wife gets up to !

Happy New Year !

And so we are back on the mat , into our 12th year of business. Hundreds of students have now been taught yoga here in this beautiful studio and many have been inspired to become teachers themselves.

This month I’m offering 2 extra “pop up ” classes on Saturday 25th January to welcome in the Chinese New year , the year of the rat !
The 1st of the Chinese horoscopes; rats are quick witted, resourceful and smart, observant and take advantage of opportunities. Rats are also diligent workers who are thoughtful but often lack the courage to become leaders.
Years of the rat …2020, 2008 ,1996,1984,1972,1960,1948,1936.

Choose either the morning session  🐁09.30-11.30.. An energetic, lively class , working diligently to shake off the old year. Or the afternoon 🐭14.00-16.00 slower yin , metal element inspired class, using affirmations & intentions to bolster confidence to face 2020 …                £15 a class.    “Gung hay fat choy !”


Merry Christmas !

The Studio will close on Friday 20th December and reopen again on Monday 6th January 2020

Merry Christmas everyone , see you next year ..for our 12th year of business !
