Classes at Trumpington Pavilion
Diane has been teaching these friendly morning yoga classes, which are open to all ages and abilities, since 2010. Emphasis is on the well-being of the whole person, with safe effective work on posture, strength, flexibility, and deep relaxation. Classes are held in a lovely light space just off Trumpington Road. Some students like to get together for coffee after class and make a morning of it, yoga can be a great way to hang out with like minded folk and enjoy some time for yourself.
- Monday Level 1-2 All levels – new beginners very welcome
Mixed ability group, ideal for new beginners as well as those with years of experience. We study a wide variety of poses (asanas) which support the well-being of the whole person, improving strength, balance, and flexibility. We end each class with some welcome guided relaxation.
- Thursday Level 2 Improver (not suitable for complete beginners)
This class is suitable for experienced students who have been doing Iyengar Yoga for some time. We study a wider variety of asanas, spend longer on inversions (or alternatives if not doing) and explore asana and pranayama practice in more depth.
- Saturday workshops Level 1-2 All levels – some Iyengar yoga experience required
Regular Saturday morning workshops for an extra boost to your practice, see timetable above for dates. These workshops provide a little more time to explore Iyengar yoga in greater depth. Whilst each workshop may focus more on one particular group of asanas or ways of working, we always include a wide variety of asanas and of course relaxation. Two hours may seem daunting for some but you’ll be surprised how the time always flies by!

Diane is particularly good at tailoring her sessions to match her students, even when they are at different levels. I practised yoga for 8 years before coming to Diane and have learnt a great deal in time that I have been her student.
Was feeling old and creaky and am much improved by Diane’s fantastic yoga group. Am much more flexible and stronger too, it often feels like a real work out – I highly recommend it.
I began attending Eight yoga classes because of lower back problems. Thanks to Diane’s patient guidance, my flexibility has increased and my back problems have gone.
