Yoga Mini Logo True Colour …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.

Want to improve your mobility and build strength? Need some tools to help with stress control or anxiety?  My classes could help you. My sessions encompass most aspects of yogic practice, not just the physical postures.  I weave small amounts of yogic philosophy into the sessions which will make your experience more complete, whatever level of practice you are at.  I teach sensitively with minimal hands on assists, just simple advice on ways to listen to your body to practice safely and 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 is geared towards allowing students to feel and experience the postures safely, without pressure to go deeper if that doesn’t 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. (females only)

Please note, relaxation at the end of the class is done 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 and Counselling. 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.
