We love our city and want to see its people happy and healthy, so at Hereford Yoga Centre we’re building a sustainable and supportive yoga community, to which everyone is welcome.

We are passionate about sharing the benefits of yoga, and see it as our job to dismantle some of the perceived barriers to the practice, making it accessible to everyone. It doesn’t matter if you’re old or young, sporty or unfit, male or female, you can do yoga. It can enable some remarkable transformations. Here’s what our students say:

“In retirement and post-traumatic injury, yoga keeps me pain-free in joints and muscles, and the teacher’s approach always returns my body to ease and my mind to calm.”

“It helps me run, cycle and snowboard without injury, it relieves the problems of a desk job, it’s a moment to myself, it helps me put life in perspective!”

“It helps me to keep a positive outlook.”

People come to yoga for many different reasons; to improve physical health, to reduce symptoms of stress and anxiety, to complement an existing exercise programme, or to find a moment’s peace. The reason you come is not important. The precise and methodical approach we take in Iyengar yoga means that everybody can progress in a safe and structured way, making positive changes in their own time and under the guidance of experienced teachers.

A few words to finish from one of our courageous students who came to yoga through one of our community outreach classes:

“My experience of yoga has been very positive. I feel I have overcome many physical and personal difficulties. Before I started practising yoga, I was a heavy smoker and struggled with overwhelming anxiety. Two years later, I have stopped smoking and my anxiety is, for the most part, no longer in control of me. I would recommend yoga to anyone, regardless of age, size, gender or background.”
