Balance Yoga restarts from 12 February
2018 plans. Updated... Classes commence 12 February.
Important update: in 2018 Balance Yoga is changing from a dedicated studio to community taught classes. Unfortunately, we have now been subject to 12 months of uncertainty and major disruption from the building renovations at 60 Victoria Street. We have made the very hard decision to close down the studio, as it has been and will continue to be unsuitable for use. This is a very regrettable situation and we apologise for uprooting our welcome yoga community.
PLEASE CHECK OUT OUR NEWS PAGE for full details.
However, we are starting back up from 12 February in locations within Cambridge, and we hope to see you back. Class details are below.
Classes commencing February
Our term one classes will be held in the same alternative locations we were teaching from during the day in recent months.
Below is the class schedule for term one.
Our Beginner's Yoga course on Tuesday evenings is now sold out.
If there is sufficient interest, we will offer a Beginner level class (casual attendance) on a Thursday morning 10.15-11.15am. If you are keen for this (or another specific class) to get started please get in touch with me here.

Beginner's Yoga Courses
Our popular Beginner's Yoga course is back in February 2018!
This is the perfect place to start for anyone completely new to yoga, or to yogis who want to gain a greater understanding of the how, what and why of yoga. This is an eight-week course. Term one courses start from 13 February. Don't miss out - these courses are always very popular.

Align & Flow Yoga
Tuesdays 5.45pm and Thursdays 9am - from 13 February!
Align & Flow features a balanced range of poses that we link together in flowing sequences and moving with our breath. This is also known as a 'vinyasa' style class. We also work in greater detail on the alignment of specific poses to build strengthen, endurance, flexibility and body awareness. The class format normally features a 'Sun Salute' inspired warm up, standing poses, and then a selection of back extensions, hip openers, forward bends and/or twisting poses, followed by relaxation.
Align & Flow is suitable for all levels, as poses can be tailored to individual need.
As the name suggests, this is the class to come to for a 'gentle' yoga experience. This popular class features mostly seated poses, focusing more on gentle mobility and stretching than it does on strength or endurance. Working through all your tight spots, such as the neck, shoulders, spine and hips, whilst taking care of our joints, with some balance and core poses as well. We keep focused on our breath and finish with relaxation. A great 'mindful movement' experience.
Yoga for Athletes & Everyone - Mondays 9am
You certainly don't have to be an athlete to come along to Yoga For Athletes & Everyone. It is suitable for everyone. But it's especially suitable for anyone who does a sport - whether you are a weekend warrior or competing at the highest level.
There is an important difference between 'Yoga for athletes' and 'Athletic yoga'.
This yoga class is designed to help 'rebalance' you by stretching out the most common areas that get tight due to physical activity, especially the hips, leg muscles, spine and shoulders. Think of it as being kind to your body after putting it through its paces during the weekend. Because this is more of a 'stretch, recover and relax' class, it is not overly strenuous, and you'll leave feeling looser, more relaxed and ready to face the week ahead.
Our locations for 2018:
MONDAY & THURSDAY CLASSES
The Kenpo Karate room, located opposite Mitre 10 on Oliver Street (come into the large car parking area).
TUESDAY & WEDNESDAY CLASSES
The St Andrew's church hall. That's the big white church on the corner by the new roundabout. Please park around the back of the hall.
