If classes are full when you try to book please let us know that you are waiting  as we sometimes get last minute cancellations.

We operate a pre booking system  Please see terms and conditions below.**
Our studio is not massive and we often get full and like to make sure everyone has a little space around them so it really is important to book in advance. 

We don't want to dissappoint you so please do book before turning up.  Sometimes classes have to be cancelled at the last minute and we don't want you turning up to closed doors and worse sometimes classes are full and we feel really bad if we have to turn you away. 

If you have trouble with the booking system please ring Barry on 07926 030890

Also monthly extended classes in Yin yoga and Restorative yoga please tell us if you are interested in this.

 Sometimes classes change or are cancelled.  Classes also get full so it is important to book  and not just turn up .  Classes run for a minimum of three people.

We enjoy a relaxed atmosphere with small classes - you will never find more than 14 in a class - so lots of individual attention if you want it.

 Yogaholics click here 

The styles we currently offer are Hatha, Vinyasa, Yin    You will find a brief explanation of each here and even better, why not try each and see which suits you best 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 talk to us first
 
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  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.

Equipment - no need to bring your own mats or blankets whilst you are trying it out, 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 other equipment like bolsters, blocks etc.  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.

 

yoga room

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.

Everyone is welcome to our classes and workshops whether they attend another class but want the extra practise at the weekend or are attending one of our classes during the holidays when their regular class is closed.

Attending our classes  You do not have to attend the same class each week and can mix and match.

Yogaholics

finIf you love Yoga and simply can't get enough of it we've got just the thing for you.  As a member you pay a monthly subscription for unlimited classes each week.  Here's the real news though.  If you recommend a friend who also becomes a member you get £5 per month for as long as they are members.  You can do this as many times as you like - so 8 friends would mean free classes for you.  See below for more details about membership.

Pay Less than £3 per class

For those who regularly like to attend at least two classes per week, we have a great  option.  Pay £60 per month and come as many times as you like the only limit is your time (classes subject to availability)*  So you could be attending   20+ classes per month!

**All Yoga class members (except drop ins) are entitled to a discount of 10% off any goods bought in the reception shop and at least 10% off most therapies that we have on offer including gift vouchers.  This includes those making block payments.

Themed classes
Occasionaly we will put on a themed class on our regular class slot.  You will find information about this on Special classes on the menu and classes will be included on the online scheduler.  Most of these are included in the membership options.
 
Special request classes
Restorative Yoga
  a very specific and personalised style of Yoga to deal with health and well being issues and good for those with limited energy or movement as well as more agile people wanting  to develop a complete sense of well-being.  These classes can also be  by arrangement for an individual or small group and involve more support and individual attention from the teacher.  Please enquire if you are interested in this class.
 
Yoga for Sports  Support  Subject to demand we also offer classes for Golf, runners, cyclists, swimmers,  cricketers, gym workers.  Some sports can lead to physical imbalance  because of the repetitive movements involved.  Yoga can help restore this imbalance.  Offered at our studio or insitu. Please enquire if you are interested - offered to individuals or select groups.

We also offer Yoga to support specific  groups i.e. weight loss, stress, anxiety. These classes are usually delivered on demand for groups.

Some styles are more suited to specific conditions for instance Yin is very helpful for those suffering from M.E. and anyone with low energy levels.   If you would like to discuss this with the teacher then please ring or email.  Tel 0161 764 1440 mail@mindandbodybury.co.uk

We have room for guest teachers and additional yoga teachers offering a contrasting discipline.  Please contact us for details.

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
