Hello, I’m ¬†Sara Cheesman I live in Bradford-on-Avon, Wiltshire and am a British Wheel of Yoga, Diploma qualified teacher.¬†¬†I have been practicing Yoga for over 25 years and teaching since 2005. I teach my own eclectic style of Hatha Yoga in West Wiltshire and Somerset . My classes are in Bradford-on-Avon, the Bowerhill area of Melksham and Hinton Charterhouse¬†¬†I also specialize in 1 to 1 Yoga, Chair Yoga and Yoga for Corporate and Special Events.

My Yoga teaching style is influenced by the teachings of Krishnamacharya and T.V.K. Desikachar, and Vanda Scaravelli. I have studied with and learnt from many inspiring teachers over the years, and continue to do so through regular Continuing Professional Development and occasional visits to India.

My classes aim to make students feel at ease, so that they can gain maximum benefit. I use classical Yoga asanas, flowing sequences, breath exercises (Pranayama), visualization, Yoga Nidra and Meditation to increase feelings of well being and decrease stress.

Overall, my aim- apart from helping my students to become stronger, healthier,more supple and able to deal better with stress- ¬†is to teach the value of ¬†’the breath’, enabling students to find peace and stillness within themselves.

“Listen to your breath

Like the wave it moves in and out

Like the tide it ebbs and flows

Listen to your breath

And you will find peace‚ÄĚ

Sara’s Yoga classes allow time for individual attention. Modifications are used when needed. We use blocks, balls, and blankets and occasionally resistance bands, to modify and vary the experience of asana. Classes are suitable for most people, but a few, some beginners and ¬†people with certain medical conditions or specific requirements, may find that 1 to 1 sessions are better for them.

Classes are for 18+ years and up to and beyond 70 years.
