Olivia Clarke : Yoga Teacher

"Olivia's yoga is nourishing both for the body and the soul. Attending enables me to start my week in a positive mindful manner and practising the poses along with considering her thoughtful words helps me to thrive in both my professional and home life. Olivia is very knowledgeable about the connections between yoga, mindfulness and well-being; physical, mental and spiritual and shares this generously. I make this class a priority in my busy schedule as it benefits my happiness enormously enabling me to flourish and as a result of that, it also benefits my family and friends." Sarah Helm Executive Headteacher,
The Wye Forest Federation

"Olivia is a remarkably generous and expert teacher whose classes are always fun and often revolutionary." Julia Brockley

"Olivia was my first ever yoga teacher. Her ability to teach the absolute beginner and the more experienced student in the same class means that I am still coming back to her many years later. Her knowledge of yoga, the body and Chinese medicine that is carefully worked into each lesson adds another rich layer, while gently stretching your body to its appropriate edge." Alex Hedges

"I love Olivia's classes. I had never done yoga before and was really worried that I'd struggle but Olivia has helped me work within my abilities to build up my skills and confidence over time. I feel great afterwards, really ready to face the week ahead!" Nicola Daley

"I would recommend Olivia's yoga classes to anyone from a beginner to a dedicated yogi. She has the perfect balance between physical and mental well being and when I leave her class on a Monday morning I feel 10 feet tall, completely relaxed and ready to take on the week! She has such a calming manner you can't help but become addicted!" Jenny Handley

Weekly / Monthly Classes

Classes will run subject to demand and interest. Places will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Term bookings will take priority. If you miss classes and need to catch them up, you are welcome to drop-in to another class, during the same term. I prefer people not to carry classes forward to the next term.

 

Learning the Power of Stillness: Yin Yoga and Meditation Group

Thursday 9:30-11am
Dates: 1st, 8th 22nd February, 1st March, 8th, 15th 22nd, 29th
Venue: The Coach House, Penyclawdd

The path of Meditation works with the root, which is mind. Chasing after everything else will keep you busy but no real inner change or transformation will occur. The main point of meditation practice is to be completely honest with your-self and to work with that honesty in a simple way. This class is suitable for people who wish to integrate Mindfulness Meditation with Yin Yoga. One hour will be dedicated to Yin Yoga poses. Half an hour will be dedicated to Pranayama (breathing practice) and Formal Sitting. You are welcome to stay for tea and coffee afterwards.

Cost: £10 per student (term commitment).
There will be no drop-in’s for this class.

 

Going Deeper – Establishing a strong self practice

Tuesday 9:15-11:15am (once a month, 2 hour class)
Dates: 30th January, 27th February, 27th March
Venue: The Coach House, Penyclawdd.

This will be a monthly class for dedicated practitioners, who want to develop a strong self-practice at home and can’t always attend a weekly class. And yet value the importance of connecting in with fellow practitioners (the Sangha) and would like to receive inspiration and guidance each month. With this in mind, we will lean into the Dharma Teachings of Buddhism to orientate our Way. There will be a different theme each month. As a teacher, my aim is to empower, guide and mentor you as you find your own way. I will occasionally give handouts and make recommendations for reading and anything that supports a strong self-practice. You are welcome to stay for tea and coffee afterwards.

Cost: £15 for a 2 hour session.

 

Private Yoga and Small Groups

If you would like private tuition (one to one) or arrange a small private group, then please contact me to arrange a day and time. I am happy to come to your home or chosen venue or you can come to the Coach House Studio.

Private Rates - please enquire, as they will depend on group numbers and whether I have to travel. Each session is tailor made to the individual or needs of the group.
