Yoga and Pilates Classes in Woking

Yoga is a light, once lit, will never dim. The better your practice, the brighter the flame.” –B.K.S lyengar

It is not an accident that you are on my Home Page. Thank you for being here. The word ‘yoga’ means ‘union’, a practice over 5,000 years old originating in Northern India. Yoga calms the mind and body to eliminate stress and improve health and vitality. Yoga poses (asanas) imitate life; reaching, pushing, pulling, strengthening, stretching and twisting are all incorporated in the practice. Combined with breathwork you have a powerful practice that will help keep you relatively stress-free. Being stress free is essential for your immune system to function at its best. In fact, yoga is a combination of weight training (your body against gravity), that gradually build up heat in the body and this will help with weight loss if combined with good nutrition and hydration. There is little or no stress on your joints as alternatives are given. You will look and feel younger and more relaxed with regular practice. Why not complement your normal exercise routine with a weekly yoga class?


I believe yoga should be enjoyable and fun. All you need is your own mat and some water. Please go to the Timetable page and send me an email or text with your enquiry. Namaste

Hi Shen, Thanks for the updates, and for your brilliant classes – I knew I needed to do more yoga to keep supple and manage my back for running, but I didn’t expect to enjoy it that much. However my experience this term has exceeded my hopes and expectations, and I really look forward to the class. I booked in at class this week for 17th and 7th, so see you on Monday!

I highly recommend yoga by Shen, I enjoy it so much I go twice a week, to the classes at Sheerwater and Horsell. Shen is an excellent teacher and knows what she is doing what ever you ability she also explains what each movement/pose is doing to your body. The hour session goes very quickly.

Hi Shen, I just wanted to let you know that I am signing up for a second time. Just also a chance to say that you are a fantastic teacher. These last 10 classes have made a noticeable difference to my well-being. I have so much more body confidence than I did. I thought I should expect to stiffen up, lose my balance etc but your teaching and practice have demonstrated the opposite. I was quite shocked with what I could do last evening (at least on one side 😉 ). Also I am becoming more aware of imbalances in my body and weaker areas, yet areas I assumed were weak , like my knees, are stronger than I thought. All about being more aware of ones body I guess. It has been suggested to me by a doctor that I should practise yoga more than once a week. When you’ve got a moment please could you send me times of your other classes so I can see if any fit my schedule? Fond regards. Namaste.

Hi Shen, I just wanted to say how much I liked the new side twist Child’s Pose we did on Thursday. It’s AWESOME!!! that I have 10lbs since I started yoga and have now got muscles in places I haven’t had for 20 years!! Yo are so thoughtful in your classes to make sure everyone is able to try each pose especially if they have just started. I just wanted to say thanks. See you on Thursday!!

Shen, I’ve really enjoyed the sessions and I love your style and although I may not be the most elegant I do feel that it is doing me a lot of good, with flexibility and confidence in trying the moves.
