I have practised yoga for over 20 years and am an advanced level Sivananda teacher, having trained at the organisation’s ashrams in Austria, the Bahamas and India. Sivananda is an accessible, yet challenging form of yoga.

A typical class begins with breathing (pranayama), sun salutations and 12 basic asanas (but with countless variations). It ends with a deep relaxation.

I started yoga as a way to stretch out tight muscles after running but then I became a regular practitioner completing my 200 hour vinyasa yoga teacher certification in 2014 and a 80 hour yin yoga training.

I love the physical and mental release that a challenging and balanced yoga practice provides. Yoga is about connecting with yourself. I hope to help all students find that experience.
Val Goodier
Gentle Hatha Yoga. Pranayama.
07902 532903
As a Medical Doctor the physical, mental and emotional benefits of Yoga are clear to me.
My aim is to share these aspects with a great emphasis on combining the work on the BODY with that of the BREATH and the MIND.

Together these can and do have a profound influence on the state of the mind and beyond.
Yoga Philosophy informs my own practice and I aim to share some aspects of this which helps to integrate each class into a coherent whole.

My Hatha classes are open to all, are themed & focus on breath and alignment in order to find steadiness in mind and body.

My Jivamukti yoga classes are in Vinyasa style where the poses flow and are coordinated by the breath. The classes are dynamic and you will often break a sweat, they incorporate Yogic philosophy, chanting, pranayama, meditation, & hands on adjustment with inspiring music.
