I teach Hatha Yoga, Vinyasa Flow Yoga and Yin Yoga in the Ilminster, Donyatt and Chard area of Somerset. I also teach yoga at Jordans Cortyard, Horton Cross.
I use some breath work in my classes, synchronising movement with the flow of breath to improve mind, body and energy levels.
Hatha Yoga classes in Ilminster, Donyatt and Jordans Courtyard in Somerset
Suitable for beginners and anyone wanting a more gentle style of yoga. The Hatha class begins with gentle stretching, followed by traditional yoga poses and ends with a wonderful lying-down relaxation leaving you feeling soothed and calm. Ideal for easing out stiff backs and for busy people needing to unwind and release tension after a day at work.
Vinyasa Flow classes at Donyatt, Somerset
An energising, faster-paced yoga where we move continuously through a flowing sequence of yoga poses. Suitable for anyone who has done yoga before, or is new to yoga but has a reasonable fitness level. This class is more dynamic and strengthens and challenges the body.
Yin Yoga at Jordans Courtyard, Horton Cross, Somerset
A quiet slow paced style of yoga which calms the mind and stretches the body. Most Yin Yoga postures are seated or lying poses targeting the hips, legs and back. The postures are held for up to 5 minutes, which enables you to stretch deeper into the body, beyond the surface muscles to target and stress the connective tissues of the fascia, tendons and ligaments.
Holding poses for an extended period of time intensifies and deepens the stretch. Bolsters, blocks and blankets are used to support you in the pose so you don’t over stretch. All poses can be adapted to suit all levels of flexibility and everyone is encouraged to work within their own limit, making it a style of yoga suitable for all abilities including beginners.
You will leave a Yin Yoga class feeling light and spacious in the body as well as having a sense of calm and peace in the mind. Other benefits of Yin Yoga include greater flexibility, better lubrication for the joints and improved posture.

I’ve been attending Zoe’s yoga classes for about 18 months. The sessions are always varied and I leave feeling much more relaxed. There is always a nice friendly atmosphere and no pressure.”
I always feel the benefits after a session in this enjoyable friendly class where I can work at my own pace under the guidance of Zoe.”
I love the yoga class. It’s a great relaxing place to be. It calms my mind and relieves a very tense body. Joining the class was one of the most productive things I’ve ever done.”
