YOGA WIMBORNE

My name is Prim Young, an experienced Yoga teacher.-
 
I trained with the London Yoga Teacher Training Group in 1996/7 under Mary Stewart, who was a yoga colleague of Vanda Scaravelli.  I am greatly influenced by the Scaravelli approach to yoga of working to awaken our spines to their original strength
and suppleness.  This is a simple form of non-competitive yoga that uses breathing to aid the movements.  My classes are suitable for all adult ages, all sexes, all levels of fitness including the unfit, and most medical conditions.  I work on calming and clearing the mind using breathing practices and releasing tensions in the body,  I do not include meditation or chanting.
 
Yoga keeps your joints working well and improves your posture and breathing, thus improving your general health and helping to combat stress and tension. 
 
You are very welcome to come and try a class to see if it suits you!  Classes cost £10 for 1.5 hours.  Payment in cash at each class. (1.5 hours may seem long. but this includes breathing and relaxation at the beginning and end of the class).
 
PAYMENT IN ADVANCE 
 
You can pay cash in advance for a calendar month.  It costs £34 if there are 4 classes that month and £44 if there are 5 classes.   This only covers a calendar month, not any set of 4 weeks.  Please bring the cash payment to your first class in a month.  I only deal in cash at the moment.  

I do not ask you to buy any equipment, except for a yoga mat.  I recommend a mat specifically for yoga, which has a non-slip surface.   I have one you can borrow if needed.   Also bring two good-sized towels to support you with some of the movements. 

Please ring or text me on 07436 148 480 or email me on  primyoung1@gmail.com with any queries you may have, however small, about the classes, clothing, suitability etc. 
 
 
I look forward to hearing from you!

WORKSHOP WITH MONICA VOSS 10 JUNE 2023

Monica comes over every year from managing the Esther Myers Yoga Studio in Toronto, Canada to teach in the UK.  I have known her for many years and always been inspired by her interpretation of Vanda Scaravelli's approach to Yoga. She knew Vanda well, as Vanda latterly spent some time each year in Toronto. We all enjoyed the session with Monica, which took in movements practised by native North Americans and Qigong, as well as Scaravelli inspired Yoga. Looking forward to her visit next year!

REVIEWS

I thought an hour and a half would be a long time for me - but the time went really quickly! - Liz

I have been going to Prim's Yoga class for 2 years now and can honestly say that my flexibility has improved to no end, as has my balance.  The breathing exercises also help with my asthma.  I would definitely recommend anyone to give Prim's excellent classes a try. - Zena

I have had my first Yoga class with Prim and it made me feel warm and positive... - Ulla

For years I had put off starting Yoga because I thought I would feel self-conscious but both classes are small, friendly and encouraging and I am really glad I took the plunge. Prim's Yoga focuses on the spine, which has positive effects on your whole body. After a few weeks, you start to realise that what seemed really difficult, begins to get easier and that encourages you. Prim encourages you to practice at home when you can and I found Yoga was really helpful during lockdown, physically and mentally. - Christine

I am enjoying my Yoga sessions at Colehill Hall. The class is a time for self awareness and we are learning postures for flexibility and balance, using the breath to help. I am more energized and happier! - Kathryn

I always look forward to and enjoy Prim's Yoga classes. Then go home feeling great! - Monica

      I have been attending Yoga with Prim for a few months and I find it definitely helps with keeping aches and pains at bay - I work in a desk-bound job, not good for the musculoskeletal system;  my back and s​houlders are where I suffer at times, the Yoga classes definitely help.

I would say the classes also help with stress - I have a busy work and family life, so look forward to the chance to unwind at the classes and have some "me-time" .   I always sleep well after the Yoga class!

I would recommend the Yoga to people of all ages to support physical health and wellbeing. - Sally

   I've recently returned to Yoga after an absence of some years.  I was lucky to discover Prim Young's Yoga classes, in a location and at a time that was perfect for me.  Prim is a very experienced Yoga teacher, providing a well-balanced programme, demonstrating a range of Yoga postures and breathing exercises relevant to all ages and abilities.

The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and I highly recommend her classes. - Glenies

A lovely relaxed class to help you move and stretch. What's not to like?! - Anne
