About the Tutor: Samantha Stone

Trained with the British Wheel of Yoga, Samantha Stone teaches Hatha Yoga with elements of Iyengar and Vinyasa styles. The classes are aimed at all levels and incorporate a range of postures including backbends, twists, balances and dynamic sequences to improve flexibility and fitness.

Breathing techniques are also incorporated into classes to improve lung capacity and aid in stress relief. Sam likes to finish every class with a guided relaxation and her teaching style is relaxed and down to earth. With informal but challenging classes, Sam encourages students to become more in tune with their bodies through exploring a variety of postures. Sam believes awareness and improving one’s own posture can have an impact on individual health and wellbeing so likes to feature such work in her classes.

“I often hear people tell me that they can’t do Yoga because they are not flexible enough but I want people to realise Yoga isn’t a competitive sport. It’s all about getting in tune with your body, working through a series of postures and movements which will, over time, increase your flexibility and strength. It’s not all about the body either, we work on the mind to de-stress with breathing techniques and relaxation”

Sam’s Yoga for All class is held in a purpose built studio with small class numbers.

“The purpose built studio is a great place to teach as it holds a small group so you get a lovely, friendly atmosphere where everyone can relax and enjoy their Yoga ”
