Welcome to Yoga with SJ

Practice yoga to get better at life; life is all about balance.

foreword...

Yoga is not about touching your toes, it is what you learn on the way down.

Yoga is like life- its a balance of holding on and letting go. Yoga does not change the way we see things, it transforms the person who sees. Yoga is not for the flexible, its for the willing.

Yoga with SJ

Warning: yoga has been known to cause health and happiness. Bend so that you don’t break. In yoga, obstacles do not block the path, they are the path. Don’t practice yoga to get better at yoga. Practice yoga to get better at life; life is all about balance.

Sarah-Jane

Hi, I’m Sarah-Jane, welcome to Yoga with SJ

I’ve been practising yoga for 20 years having first attended classes whilst at university. I have attended classes all round the world and experienced a number of styles such as Iyengar, Vinyasa, Ashtanga, Hot yoga, Nidra, restorative and more recently Shadow yoga to name but a few. These are all forms of Hatha yoga and I draw on all my experiences with these styles in my classes.

I am passionate about sharing the benefits of yoga with anyone who wants to either try it for the first time or continue on their yogic pathway. Yoga really is for everybody, no matter what your age, body type, flexibility or strength.

My group classes take place in Finchampstead and Aborfield in Berkshire, and I offer one-to-one classes run from your own space.

Sarah-Jane is a great yoga instructor, she is always very warm and approachable and just has a lovely vibe. As a beginner I enjoyed her classes, she is patient and clear when it comes to some of the more advanced moves and its very obvious she knows her stuff. I would rate Sarah-Jane 10 out of 10.

Emma

SJ’s classes are well organised. She explains what the focus of the session is and they’re always perfectly paced. Sarah-Jane demonstrated the postures well and was really encouraging. There was a wide range of abilities in her class and she always caters for beginners whilst offering a challenge for more experienced Yogis.

Karen

Sarah-Jane is a wonderful yoga teacher. Her expert knowledge of the different yoga poses and moves and their benefits is obvious throughout her classes. She motivates you not only to make progress, but to incorporate yoga into your day-to-day life.
