Yoga Mini Logo True Colour …a gentle, non-intimidating approach to yoga.

I’m Claire Pickin and I run affordable Hatha Yoga classes in Sale & Sale Moor and provide several ways to practice online.

I have been teaching yoga since 2007 and practicing yoga with my yoga teaching Mum since I was a child.  All my classes are mixed ability and beginners are especially welcome.

**If you want to quickly check my weekly class schedule – click the ‘Classes’ tab at the top of this page!

If you want to improve your mobility and build strength, or if you need a tool to help with stress control or anxiety then these classes could help you. My classes encompass all aspects of yogic practice not just the physical postures.  I weave small amounts of yogic philosophy into the sessions which will hopefully make your experience more complete, whatever level of practice you are at.  I also teach as sensitively as possible with no unnecessary hands on assists, just simple advice on ways to listen to your body to practice safely and intuitively.

My teaching style is geared towards allowing students to feel and experience the postures, without pressure to go deeper if that does not feel appropriate.  Safety is always the priority.  If you feel unsure or nervous about attending a class then contact me to arrange a one to one session to prepare you. (this is open to ladies only)

Please note we do our relaxation at the end of the class with lights off, this means it is dark in the room during evening classes in the darker months.  If this is an issue, then please let me know and I can ensure you are located in the part of the room where there is more light.  Feeling safe is of utmost importance. (You will be asked to complete a form stating any injuries or health information which may be relevant, this is for your safety.)

I have had addtional training in CBT, NLP, Reiki, Hypnotherapy, Kinesiology, studying these modalities has greatly improved my communication skills which I hope enhances my teaching.  Click Here for details of all qualifications

Please bring your own mat and wear something comfortable.  Pregnant people are welcome in class if they have practiced yoga before, I am trained and insured in Pre and Post Natal Yoga Teaching.  If you would prefer a specialist Pregnancy class then please see the links page.

Payment Info: There are several ways you can pay for my classes. Class passes are very convenient – you can pay for as many classes as you wish in advance and then use the class pass up any time as long as it is within 12 months of purchase. This can be done by PayPal (see link below) or bank transfer – message me for details.


**MAJOR CHANGES DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS. ** Please be understanding that I have gone from 180 available places across all weekly sessions down to just 60 – due to the rules of social distancing. I try my utmost to allocate places fairly and all booking is done manually by myself rather than an automated system. Thanks for your patience.

17th May 2021 is the date we are permitted to run in-person classes again. Classes will open gradually. This largely depends on the venues as to whether they can open safely.

Mon and Wed chair yoga classes at Brooklands Sports Club are ready to start again from the 17th May and are fully booked.

Thurs evenings at Sale Moor Methodist Church on  is starting back on the 20th May – this date is fully booked. (I am still awaiting confirmation about the Tues 6.15pm session)

Friday morning class at The Avenue Methodist Church  starts back on the 28th May. Class is fully booked, but I am hoping that more places will open up once I’ve worked out my maximum safe number.

If you are interested in attending any of the above classes please email me and I can put you on the waiting list.

**People who have existing credit from payments for Zooms and videos or from last year’s pre-paid classes (which had to be cancelled) will get first options on places, then I will open up the other places. Check my Facebook page for up to date info and keep checking back here. If social distancing advice is changed in June – this will open up a lot more places.

Zoom classes are still running  on Tues mornings and Wed evenings and brand new pre-recorded videos are still being produced at a rate of 2 per week. (one general Hatha class which is a recording of the previous week’s Zoom and a more challenging Hatha Flow class)

I gained experience last year in running Covid safe yoga classes as some ‘in-person’ classes were back up and running from Sept to Nov in a Covid safe way.  (I’ve completed a Coronavirus awareness course and completed risk assessments for all my venues.).

Classes need to be booked and paid for in advance, email me first to see if there is a place and I will give go ahead to make payment (Payment details below). Click the Classes tab at the top of this page to see which classes are back.
