Yorkshire Yoga was founded in 2005 to provide a welcoming and inclusive venue in which all of the community could experience the benefits of yoga. It became a charity a few years later.
We are an approved centre and training venue for the British Wheel of Yoga (BWY). BWY is recognised by Sport England and The Sport and Recreation Alliance as the National Governing Body for Yoga in England.
The yoga centre provides group exercise classes taught by qualified instructors in Yoga, Pilates, Nordic Walking as well as well-being and natural stress relief techniques. There is also the option of individual classes.
We believe that everyone should be able to participate in yoga, which is why we offer a range of classes suitable for different levels of ability and health.
The charitable aims include not only assisting in the treatment and care of adults and children of all ages suffering from physical and or mental disabilities, but also to research, develop and advance the study of yoga, related therapies or sport as a means of improving the physical, mental and spiritual health of the community. Findings are used to inform, publish and raise awareness of the significant complementary, educational and beneficial value of yoga and related therapies or sport to health care at community, regional and national levels.
