We enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with small classes - you will never find more than 12 in a class - so lots of individual attention if you want it.

The styles we currently offer are Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin and Kundalini.  You will find a brief explanation of each below and even better, why not try both and see which  you like best.
 
We  have vacancies on most of our classes and you can book on line - or if you prefer telephone 0161 764 1440 or email yoga@mindandbodybury.co.uk to book
 
What to expect from your class
All our Yoga, classes with the exception of Yin,  begin with a short period of relaxation followed by warm up poses. You can then expect a series of postures  including  lying on the mat, standing, balance work  and sitting.  Breathing and using breathing in posture is included in all the classes.  At the end of the class there will be a period of relaxation which might  include yogic breathing techniques and various relaxation/meditation methods.  Sometimes the end relaxation is extended to include guided relaxation and meditation techniques - usually that is indicated on the class description or included in the weeks programe as a special class.
The relaxation at the end of the class can be experienced in many ways.  Those who find it difficult to relax may not benefit from it straight away.  However, after you have been coming for a while it is usual to occasionally feel as though you have drifted off into a deep sleep, yet you are still aware of where you are.  That is a sign that you are in a deep relaxation and very occasionally it may be that you have fallen asleep.
 
Not sure which class style is for you?  If you go to our booking calendar you will find an indication as to the level of practice suitable for that class i.e. Beginners+, Moderate experience, Challenging.  If you click on the class title on the booking system it will open a description of the style. Just look in the toolbar at the top right of the classes booking screen.  Select the level you want and only those classes will show.

Equipment - no need to bring your own mats or blankets we have a supply in the studio, although you are welcome to bring your own if you prefer.  If you are coming regularly you may choose to build up some oth er equipment like bolsters, blocks etc (which we sell) although there are many people in the classes who do not have lots of equipment and we can improvise. Some people prefer to use specialised yoga towels to cover the mats and help with slipping but it is not essential.

What to Wear - nothing special - just loose fitting trousers and a comfortable T shirt will be fine.  If you want to wear specialised yoga gear that's fine too.

Feedback

 I really enjoyed the class- please thank Barry for me -& I slept really well which is novel.  Can't wait for next week.

I spent £1000+ and about 18 months at the chiropractic because I had a painful lower back. I was advised by her not to do Yoga. It didn't improve much and I decided to come try Yin Yoga instead and over a period my back was completely better and stayed better. It's over two years since I have been to Barrys class and I am now beginning to get some twinges that tell me it is coming back. I need to find a local Yoga class with a teacher like Barry, to get on top of it before it gets bad (I've moved from Bury) but just want to thank Barry and to say that it would have saved me a lot of money to just do Yoga in the first place. I think the chiropractic was right though in that some Yoga classes would have been bad for my back but Barry is very skilled and encourages you to be careful and self-aware. So if you have a bad back i hope this help you feel confident to join one of Barry's classes. Thanks Barry. (A. L.)

Thankyou - from Scotland - for the yoga Friday and the laughter workshop
Sunday. The "Inner Smile" seems to have settled in and is having a good
holistic effect! Hope to see you again sometime - best wishes Abi

I loved the Yin Yoga and the fantastic atmosphere in your studio
