CHRIS TAYLOR YOGA
Authentic and functional Yoga for every body
I truly believe that yoga should serve the student, and that our practice should be functional, relevant, and help us live a full life. I have been a student in many classes over the years, where this has certainly not felt the case, and has taken a performative based approach, rather than an informative, contemplative and functional approach. I believe this can be intimidating, off putting and unhelpful to anyone who is interested in attending a yoga class for the first time. I don't teach yogaerobics or stretch-ercise, I make a strong case to differentiate between yoga, exercise and performance. You will never hear me say "feel the stretch", "no pain, no gain", or "keep up". However, I will invite you to move, breath and relax, with balance, steadiness and composure, at your pace. This isn't about avoiding difficult postures either, but to approach them with open attention, intention, ease and stability.

CLICK HERE TO SEE THE ONLINE PRE-RECORDED CLASSES AVAILABLE
I now have a collection of pre-recorded Zoom classes available HERE.
I appreciate, not everyone has 75 minutes in their day for a practice, so they will vary from 15 minutes to 75 minutes.
These are for anyone, who wishes to practice the class again, or those who haven't had the opportunity to join us in one of our live sessions. To enable me to provide these recordings for everyone to use, they are done so on a donation basis.
The donation button can be found at the top of the recorded classes page.
If you would like to participate, simply subscribe to the online class invite o obtain the access passcode.
THE SUNDAY SLOW-CIAL
As our online community grows, I thought it would be nice to connect offline too.
The Sunday slow-cial, is a relaxed, slow and socially distanced walk. This gives us the opportunity to have an analogue interaction, rather than just a digital one. We chat, walk, and share a few hours together, in the fresh air, and the beauty of Rushcliffe park.
This happens on the last Sunday of each month, at Rushcliffe park, Ruddington, at 10.30 a.m (government guidelines permitting). We meet between the main car park, and the rangers office. The full address can be found below. Also please note, car parking is £1.00. This can be paid by card, cash or Ringo.

“The success of Yoga does not lie in the ability to perform postures, but in how it positively changes the way we live our life and our relationships.”
