Welcome to YogaOne
Iyengar Yoga is a detailed and systematic approach to learning the subject of yoga. As such, our classes are run as an entire course, rather than individual classes. This approach offers each pupil a well-rounded experience of the ancient Indian discipline, and enables the practitioner to progress.
If you miss a scheduled class you can generally make it up at another class before the course finishes. This is fully explained in the terms and conditions when booking, please be sure to read them.
Courses run from and to specific dates, which are listed on the timetables. When booking a course, you will choose one class to attend each week. For example you might choose; Monday 19.30 to 19:45 Intro Level, 6 weeks, £54. This would be your weekly class for the duration of the six week course.
Pre-booking a yoga course is essential and pre-payment is required to secure your place on a course. We do not hold bookings without payment.
We offer drop-in classes to students already attending a regular weekly yoga course, if they wish to take an extra yoga class and space is available. Please e-mail to check if space is available before attending.
Our classes are suitable for beginners and those with a general level of experience. Please refer to our class level guide below to see which class will be most suitable for you. Of course, don’t hesitate to ask if you’re unsure.
It’s never too late to start yoga! We have students of all ages attending our classes, All classes are for adults so you must be 16 years or over to attend.
“Words cannot convey the value of yoga, it has to be experienced”
Catrin Thomas & Steve Davies
“YogaOne Studio is a Centre of Excellence and a Haven of Calm.
Thomas Franklin’s Iyengar teaching skills , experience and knowledge are exemplary. He has an eye for detail always giving clear instruction , explanation, guidance and adaptation if necessary. His caring disposition provides an inclusive atmosphere , he sees each person as an individual within a group NOT the group as the whole and there is always time for a little humour too!
At YogaOne with Thomas you really learn the importance of movement , postures and the mechanics of how and why our bodies move or don’t move in a certain way!
The flexibility and strength you acquire through his yoga sessions enhance mind, body and soul. It’s a whole body work out! The progress one makes become transferable everyday physical and mental skills. We would have no reservations in recommending YogaOne whatever your level of ability or knowledge.”
“Thomas at Yoga One is an excellent Iyengar yoga teacher. In my experience his lessons are a consistently high standard with a variety of levels to suit everyone. Thomas is professional and non-judgmental but at the same time engaging. His attention to detail, knowledge and experience and excellent communication allow you to work deeply and safely in your yoga postures.
Iyengar yoga works through bringing a high level of attention to fine details and actions in yoga postures, builds strength and alignment, and has the effect of releasing tension in the mind and body, allowing for a deep relaxation at the end of the class. I have been practicing yoga for over 20 years and can highly recommend his classes.”
“If you’re looking to get into yoga I would strongly recommend you to try Iyengar yoga with YogaOne. It focuses on your posture and the teachers are trained and understand your body movements, sometimes better than you. I feel relaxed after every yoga lesson even if the lessons may seem tough at the time. Having a great teacher is essential and you will simply love doing yoga.”
“I signed up for classes at Yoga One because I had read a paper which stated that yoga is beneficial for bone density. But the benefits for me have been much more; flexibility, posture, balance and relaxation, all in a very peaceful, serene studio.”
“Having attended Iyengar Yoga classes for 40 years plus, including many classes with BKS Iyengar himself I can honestly say that Thomas is one of the best teachers. Hard working and enjoyable classes in a well equipped and comfortable studio.”
“I’ve been practicing yoga with Thomas for five years now, having started as a beginner. Classes are calibrated to work you physically and in due course mentally, challenging your body and mind. Each year I’ve seen steady progress in my flexibility, my strength and my self-awareness. I can say with no doubt that this has been the result of Thomas’s teaching. His wisdom and encouragement are a great motivation, pointing the way to your own path. The studio space is wonderful too. I cannot recommend Yoga One highly enough!”
“Since leaving work, Yoga One classes with Thomas have been hugely beneficial to my overall well-being. The classes have stretched me, mind and body, in new directions. They are well taught, tailored to individual capacities and are suitable for all levels and ages. I recommended them without reservation.”
“I have to admit I have never really enjoyed exercise, although I have done plenty of fitness classes and yoga classes over the years I have always sneakily looked at my watch looking forward to the end of class. After my first few classes at Yoga One I was totally hooked – this was something different- I was laughing in class! Unlike other yoga classes where I followed a sequence, here I was taught. I was taught how to structure a pose, how to hold a pose, how to push myself, how to control the breath and how that in turn can help us to steady our mind – techniques that really help in day to day life.
It didn’t matter that I was less flexible than most in the class – as I was shown what props or modifications could be made. I feel so lucky to have found Yoga One – the expert teaching has increased my fitness, my flexibility, my focus, my ability to relax and my strength (physically and mentally) but through Yoga One I have also met some great friends.”
