with Kitty Billings
A light hearted slow flow class with lots of options so you can choose what suits your body and your energy levels. The class is often themed around a biomechanical alignment principle, so we evolve our understanding of the postures. Pranayama (breathing practices) and meditation are woven into the fabric of each class.
Gentle Vinyasa Yoga is a form of yoga that focuses on a slow and gentle flow of movement synchronized with breath. It combines elements of both Vinyasa and Hatha yoga, with a focus on a more slow-paced and gentle practice. In Gentle Vinyasa Yoga, you move through a series of poses, or asanas, while focusing on your breath. The movements are gentle and flowing, with an emphasis on building strength, flexibility, and balance, while also promoting relaxation and stress relief.
This style of yoga is particularly beneficial for beginners or those with physical limitations, as it allows for modifications and variations to accommodate individual needs. It can also be a great choice for those looking for a more meditative and calming practice.
Some common Gentle Vinyasa Yoga poses include Sun Salutations, Warrior I and II, Tree Pose, Downward-Facing Dog, and Child’s Pose. The pace of the practice is slow and gentle, with each movement flowing smoothly into the next.
Overall, Gentle Vinyasa Yoga can be a wonderful practice for anyone looking to improve their overall health and well-being, while also finding a sense of peace and relaxation in their daily lives.

I attended a class with Kitty and she was a amazing. She is a wonderful teacher who really makes you feel welcome and cared for. I couldn't recommend this class enough!
Kitty has lived a life infused with Yoga since she was a young teenager, she established the foundations for this moving art after being introduced to the practice by her mother. While studying a degree in Public Health she found herself adopting a regular practice of meditation through Arhatic Yoga and Pranic Healing. At the same time she discovered the dynamic Ashtanga Yoga practice and moved deeply into the Mysore form.
Since 2006 Kitty has traveled to India, Indonesia, New Zealand, UK, USA and Germany on several occasions to further educate herself in Yoga, Meditation, Pranic Healing, and Ayurvedic Medicine. She has explored several Ayurvedic therapy (Panchakarma) centres throughout the globe and has observed many methods of healing. Kitty’s passion is to share this knowledge of Ayurveda, Yoga and meditation and she regularly facilitates Yoga workshops and conducts one on one Ayurvedic lifestyle consults.
She is committed to engaging in nourishing work for the soul and finds herself collaborating with like minded souls who are equally dedicated to well being as she is. Kitty considers herself a constant student, embracing knowledge and wisdom through regular daily practices. On and off the mat, Kitty wishes to share a path full of humility, acceptance and joy.
We have studio mats for you to use, however, we advise you to eventually buy your own mat. We sell a small select range of yoga mats that we recommend/use ourselves. Cheap yoga mats are ok to start with, but you will feel the difference in a high-quality yoga mat as it will make your practice far more enjoyable. Cheap thin mats don’t offer the support and comfort that a higher-quality mat provides.
Wear comfortable clothing with layers that are easily removed or added to allow for changes in body temperature during class. Be ready to practice in bare feet. This is the traditional (and safest) way to practice. One thing that we would recommend is to wear a top that you can keep on until you warm up and that you can put on at the end of a class, especially for Shavasana (relaxation).
