Welcome to Yogi Claire Hatha Yoga Classes…To go directly to class schedule – click here!  

…a gentle, non-intimidating approach to yoga.

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

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

If  you want to improve your mobility and build strength or need some tools to help manage stress or anxiety, my classes could help you. My sessions encompass most aspects of yogic practice, not just physical postures.  I weave small amounts of yogic philosophy into the sessions which will make your experience more complete.  I teach sensitively with minimal hands on assists, simply offering advice on ways to listen to your body to practice intuitively. I have completed training in the Neuroscience of yoga and of how slow and mindful movements can bring healing and positivity into your life.

My teaching style allows students to feel and experience the postures safely, without pressure to go deeper if that is not appropriate.  Safety is always the priority.  If you feel apprehensive about attending a class, contact me to arrange a one to one session to prepare you.

I work one day per week at The Nerve Injury ClinicBrooklands, offering rehabilitation yoga sessions to patients there. https://www.thenerveinjuryclinic.co.uk/

Relaxation at the end of the class is done with lights off, 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, Counselling and recently Yoga and Neuroscience. Studying these modalities has greatly improved my communication and teaching skills. (See the ‘Info and links’ Tab for my qualifications and ongoing training information.)

Bring your own mat and wear something comfortable.

How to book your place...

Class places need to be booked in advance. This is to maintain an ample distance between mats. There are now less places than when classes were drop in, so your place needs to be pre-paid (with exception of chair yoga)  I try my utmost to allocate places fairly, with class members who have credit with me getting first options on places.

Bookings for classes are open one week ahead, message me or text me to check availability, before making payment. Cancellations happen so you can text me on the day of the class to see if there is a last minute place – in these cases, cash can be paid in class.

**Cancellation Policy (for in-person classes): If you cancel your pre-paid place more than 48 hours before the class, I can carry the payment forward to your next class. If it’s less than 48 hours AND I can fill the place with someone from the wait list,  I will carry payment forward to your next class. If cancellation is less than 48 hours before the class and I can’t fill the place – I cannot carry the payment forward. This is to ensure my costs are fully covered and to discourage people from booking places and failing to attend. This is proving to be a fair system.

‘IN PERSON’ CLASSES:  £7 per session except the chair yoga class which is £5 per session (other payment options available for the chair yoga class).

ZOOM CLASSES: £6 per session – See schedule for details.

ONE HOUR PRE-RECORDED YOGA CLASS VIDEOS: £6 each General Hatha Yoga, Chair Yoga, OR Hatha Flow styles, there is now a full library of classes!

Chair Yoga Videos: Order a bundle of three 40 minute chair yoga videos for only £10. (see below for ways to pay)

There are several payment options for your convenience. Class passes are popular – you can pay for as many classes as you wish and 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.
