is the yoga of peace
Shanti Yoga is easy to learn and everyone can enjoy the classes at any age or state of fitness.
It uses soft stretching movements, gentle postures, directed breathing, awareness and concentration that pose no strain on the body, while toning and stretching all the body's systems.
Jocelyn Thompson has been teaching yoga since 1994, in a variety of settings including yoga studios, hospitals, gyms and community groups. She ‘walks the talk’, dedicated to practising yoga in her daily life as well as on the mat and meditation cushion. She has been practicing yoga since her teens.

what people say
These yoga classes are amazing!
I have learned so much about my body, how to relax and breathe properly. If you have never done yoga before, this is for you.
And if you have, prepare to be amazed!
Always feel rejuvenated
after a yoga session with Jocelyn.
A tranquil haven in the midst of our busy lives!
I have attended Jocelyn's yoga classes for nearly 2 years. In that time I have improved my strength and flexibility, also areas of pain have greatly diminished particularly my left shoulder and lower back.
The moment I walk through the door for my yoga class I'm always amazed - the aura of peace and tranquility is all around me like an oasis.
The relaxation practice followed by the many different yoga stretches, along with so many useful tips (not without a sense of humour) is wonderful.
I leave the class feeling relaxed yet energised
… highly recommended.
Jocelyn is such a gentle and encouraging teacher. She starts with ‘where you are at’ and helps you develop your skills at your pace.
I love having the time to breathe and stretch, and plan to make more time this year devoted to my health and well being.
I have been in chronic pain for years and have found Chair Yoga has helped me enormously. My body is not as stiff and I find I have more flexibility. I would recommend Jocelyn's classes to everyone.
