Costs and how classes run

Join any time, space permitting and subject to booking. No need to wait for the start of a new term.

Trial session is welcome – £9 – see below for more information.

£45 pp for 6 weeks, paid from your first session. Pay by cash (preferred) or cheque. Pay in class.
The term fee of £45 runs consecutively and is due at the end of each 6 weeks in advance of the next 6 weeks, to reserve your space for as long as you wish to attend… simple!

The Wednesday afternoon class at 1pm is open for Both: pay as you go drop in attendance or Term fee whichever suits you best.

Classes are run as you would expect from any professional activity club, college course or gym. This is a manageable affordable term rate. A simple term fee system means lower class costs. Equating to just £7.50 per 1.5 hour session with an established school and a long term experienced teacher, is excellent value. There are no lengthy contracts, you have motivation to attend, a guaranteed space each week, sufficient space for comfort & capped numbers for effective teaching… Just come and enjoy.

Can I do one class first, to try it?

Yes you can. A one off trial session is £9. Cash only. Pay in class. No commitment. Open to any new student regardless of whether you have done yoga before. Booking is still required, space permitting.
If you are unsure a trial session is a great way to have a go, While a trial is welcome it is only a taste! 6 weeks is recommended to form a fully educated opinion as classes vary in content each week.

Do you work shifts?

You can alternate between one evening class (any one you decide) and the Wednesday afternoon class.

What if I can’t attend?

Awaken with Yoga offers a bonus system if you wish to take advantage of it in the event you may have an occasional genuine reason you cannot attend.

If you can attend a class during the week but not your normal registered class, you can book to switch to another session during that week, if, e.g. family emergencies, parents evening etc.

If you cannot attend ANY class during the course of a week (e.g. due to illness), sessions can be made up by attending 2 sessions in any ONE week you decide throughout your personal attendance year – from the time you join to the same time the following year. You do not have to make classes up immediately, so there is no pressure. Doing more than one session of yoga a week works at a deeper level and you will really notice the difference.

PLEASE NOTE: Switching and making up sessions operates on an honesty box policy –please respect the following, which enables it to work: Is not to be abused in instances such as frequent work related issues  If your job rules your life it would be difficult to commit to any class of any nature.    Likewise;  If you choose not to attend  – its cold, etc…or if you choose to override your class with another engagement of choice like a night out. This is fair enough

Of course you do not have to switch sessions or make them up, the choice is yours – many simply let it go, and accept it  is part of the path.

When the above system is respected it works – and generally it is and mostly people are accommodated . Please consider: many  classes and courses charge a block booking but there will be no refund or there may be no classes to swap to if you cannot attend a session – I arrange it from good will and although not a right – this is a bonus! .


There are free personal weeks available after a qualifying period of attendance. You choose when to take them and what for.

There are close downs in line with main / school holiday seasons.
