Yogasmiths offer a range of Wirral Yoga Classes, based in West Kirby & Hoylake. Our Traditional Hatha Yoga classes are suitable for all abilities from complete beginners to experienced practitioners.

What to expect at our Wirral Yoga Classes

We structure our Yoga classes so that we always have a theme of yoga philosophy. Pranayama – breathing exercises are always included in our classes to give you techniques to help manage stress. Mobilisation exercises start the physical part of the session followed by yoga poses working up to a peak pose or flow. Every session finished with a lovely guided relaxation so you can feel like you float home after class!

We have weekly Hoylake Yoga Classes at Hoylake Parade Community Centre and weekly West Kirby Yoga Classes at Westbourne Hall Community Centre.

In addition to to our Traditional Hatha Yoga classes we offer weekly Wirral Chair Yoga classes. These are our Gentle Years Yoga© Classes. These sessions are aimed at people with age related health conditions or for those who just wish to practice yoga in a chair. The session are structured so that include full body mobilisation exercises, mild pulse raising activities, strengthening poses, balance improvement and relaxation techniques. The aim of the class is to ensure greater ease in activities of daily living as we age.

You can find further details on our Yoga Classes page.

“I was completely new to yoga. I was a little nervous and unsure what to expect. Paul made me feel calm and relaxed immediately. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my first yoga session. I felt wonderful afterwards and in the days to follow. I will be making yoga an important part of my weekly routine. Paul helped me understand the importance of deep breathing and how this links in with the movements our bodies do in yoga. I have enjoyed practising my breathing and some yoga positions since my session. Paul explained everything very clearly. I had a wonderful first experience of yoga thanks to Paul. After my first session, I came away feeling relaxed and happy. Relaxed because I understand how to use my breathing to help with any situation. And happy to know, that, over time with the help of Paul, I can hopefully have better posture and much improved core strength. I am excited to learn more and develop my strength in both mind and body. ” Lucy, Thingwall.

“My husband and I have just had our first ever yoga session with Paul and Steve and it was wonderful. Everything was explained perfectly and they talked us through every part carefully and made us feel at ease.
They were very professional and it was great to have one of them checking your posture and the other showing you how to do the moves which I feel is a very unique way but the best if you want to make sure you are doing it properly. We felt in safe competent hands and the relaxation at the end made us feel very calm with a sense of wellbeing.
Nothing was too much trouble and what I loved most was they even came to our own home as we find it difficult to get out to classes at the moment so this was perfect. We would highly recommend Paul and Steve to anyone, we will definitely be booking more sessions as they give us the confidence of wanting to continue. Their passion for yoga really shines through!” Carrina and Steve, Lower Heswall
