Cornwall Yoga Centre

At Cornwall Yoga Centre, our philosophy is ‘move well and breathe well and you will rest well and be well'. We believe that by learning simple techniques anyone can utilise Yoga practises to improve the quality of their life.


One of the teachings in the most important Yoga text (the Yoga Sutras) advises us that if we are ill or depressed or somehow ‘out of sorts' it is a good idea to find just one thing to do that makes us feel different - and keep doing it. By this decision we instigate the possibility of change so even if that ‘one thing' is not the miracle cure of all our ills it has started something and if we keep doing it, it won't take long for the change to be bigger than we might have expected.


Our approach is very grounded - we use one of three approaches depending on the individual needs of the student:


Developmental - what is missing/happening? Does a student need more or less of something? Do we need more strength? Less stress?
Maintenance - when a student has a good body/mind balance established, yoga practice regularly prevents stresses building up and maintains strength & wellbeing
Healing - we consider a healing yoga practice as a holistic version of physiotherapy - injury/pain/pathology has a mental and emotional existence beyond the actual pain or illness so we work with that as well as the physical symptoms.


What we're definitely not!
• We do not subscribe to the 'no pain no gain' mentality
• Our yoga is not concerned with aesthetics - we really don't care what people look like AT ALL; we do not pursue a beauty ideal and you will not see any pictures of skinny beauties doing big back bends at Cornwall Yoga Centre!
• We do not 'try' we just do it, like Yoda! We do not stretch, we do not strive for sweat and we do not expect all bodies to achieve the same ends.


We run classes from Monday to Saturday. No matter your age or ability, there's a class to suit you. If you can breathe, you can do yoga!
