Yoga works well in conjunction with other exercises. If you are a runner and you want to stretch out your hamstrings or lift weights and want to ensure you are maintaining an excellent posture to avoid injury, then this class is also perfect for you.

Yes, there is ample parking at the school.
Where do I go when I get to the school?
Enter the school through the secondary reception area, which is up the steps and over to the right. The staff at the reception desk can direct you to the Primary Hall.
What measures have been put in place to protect me from Covid-19?
As it's a school, the site itself is very secure with a temperature check for everyone on entry, hand sanitising stations, signage and regular cleaning routines throughout the building.
You will need to bring your own yoga mat, yoga belt and a blanket to avoid equipment sharing. Having these items will encourage you to practice at home!
The class size has been reduced to a maximum of 20 people so we can continue to remain socially distant in the hall and avoid self isolation.
Lastly, if you are feeling unwell, please stay at home. Using the booking system, you can either “transfer” your ticket to another date or select “cancel” for a refund on the day of you class before 4pm. You will also need to drop me a quick text or email in order for the refund to be processed, as this has to be done manually.
I still have question. How do I contact Sam?
You can email Sam on firstname.lastname@example.org or reach her on 07875 024 301.
Yoga for kids
A message from Northampton-based yoga teacher Samantha Nixon
Here you will find details on the classes I teach. Regardless of whether you are new to yoga or an experienced practitioner, I would be absolutely delighted to see you :o)
I firmly believe practising yoga helps you to become the very best version of who you really are. It rebalances your mind and body back into a blissful state of equilibrium. In the fast paced world we live in, it's impossible to not get caught up in working and planning. Yoga gives you the time to restore, to replenish and to rebalance your energy levels. It's a time that you dedicate to yourself. A gift from you, to you.
Seeing as you are here, why not enjoy this simple breathing exercise that can be practiced at anytime and wherever you are:
Think of the word "relax". It has two syllables, "re" and "lax". Now try this exercise. As you breathe in, think "re" to yourself, and as you breathe out, think "lax". Don't let your mind wander away from repeating the word "relax"' in tune with your breathing. When you breathe out, try to let go of any tensions in your body. Focus on the muscles which you know become tense when you're stressed. Remember, every time you breathe out: "laaaax".
