At Carlisle Therapies we believe that yoga can not only help restore your flexibility and strength but that it also has the power to heal.  The classes that run from our mini-studio at 34 Lowther Street are limited in size, ensuring that each student gets plenty of personal feedback and the modifications necessary to participate as fully as your body allows in the class. We also run classes from other venues in Carlisle and Keswick.

The majority of our weekly classes are suitable for beginners as you progress at your own level.  We run a rolling programme of weekly classes in 5 week blocks, which you pre-book.  We also run some non-timetabled yoga classes and wellbeing events.
The types of classes we run are varied and include:

Absolute Beginners Yoga 5 week Programme: Take your first steps onto your yoga mat.  Our 5 week Absolute Beginners Yoga Programme is just that - only students new to yoga will be in the class, meaning you will all be starting from scratch.During this 5 week programme you will explore all aspects of yoga.  Yoga is not simply stretching,  it is underpinned by a rich philosophical heritage.  This programme will introduce you to the all aspects of yoga.  Ruth runs these courses from The Quaker Meeting Rooms in Carlisle and Keswick.  Next Carlisle course start date Wednesday 16th January 2020. 

Chair YogaThis class is suitable for those wishing to maintain their flexibility and strength but who are unable to practice yoga at floor level on a yoga mat.  For example, you may be unable to weight bear on your wrists or knees or simply cannot get up and down to a mat. Using a chair as support really helps you reap the benefits of yoga such as; increased flexibility, strength, balance, calm. You may be getting older, carry extra weight, lack energy/be recuperating, have aches and pains that mean you cannot get down to floor level to your mat.

Curvy Yoga: Here at Carlisle Therapies we try and make our classes accessible to every-body.  People come in all shapes and sizes and this class tailors to the needs of larger sized people.  Being bigger or curvy may mean that adjustments may be needed to access some yoga asanas.  Your instructor will work with you to help you build your confidence on your yoga mat.  Suitable for sizes 18 +.

Beginners Slow Flow Yoga: is suitable for yoga beginners as well as those with a yoga practice. You will be guided through all areas of movement in the body, synchronising them to the breath so you can flow freely throughout your yoga flow.  An energising yet grounding class to unify the body, mind and breath.  We recommend that if you are completely new to yoga that you attend an Absolute Beginners Yoga 5 week course prior to attending our yoga classes.

Dynamic Vinyasa: is a powerful yet relaxed class filled with dynamic moving meditation with softness, strength, stability and stillness.  This class is more dynamic than our Beginners classes and ideal for those with a regular yoga practice. Intermediate only

Pregnancy Yoga: suitable from 14 weeks. During pregnancy, yoga can play a key role in enhancing the experience of this precious time and empowering the mother-to-be to have the most conscious birth experience. It is an ideal way to support your body, mind and well-being, offering you the opportunity to connect with your baby
