DISCOVER a New Kind of YOGA Class

Yoga is not about battling with yourself and your body. It’s about learning who you are, how to look after yourself, and how to find peace and insight amidst your everyday life, no matter how busy, stressful or difficult things are for you right now. When we learn how to trust and accept ourselves, everything else falls into place. Our physical wellbeing, our mental wellbeing, our emotional wellbeing.

Our weekly yoga classes in Oxford offer a space for you to let go of any preconceptions you have about your body, mind and wellbeing. Whether you're an experienced yogi, an occasional practitioner, or merely inquisitive about what lies at the heart of yoga, you will be welcome.

Thursdays: 7.00pm-8.15pm, Iffley Church Hall, map

Restful Being Yoga Classes

Our weekly yoga classes take you to a place within yourself where you can experience your own, deep, inner calm, and then be able to connect with this unremitting peace back out in the real world. Combining postures, sequences, breathing exercises and guided relaxations (or ‘yoga nidras’), each class promises to take you on a journey of self-discovery, self-acceptance and deep rest.

Restful Being's founder James Reeves is a world-renowned yoga nidra expert who has been teaching hatha yoga since 2005. Our classes are also taught by Naomi Ekers and Anne Marie Frohock (learn all about our teachers here).

All classes operate on a drop-in basis, £10 per class.

James has been the most amazing teacher.
