He links his work with the soil, plants and greenwood and his work on the yoga mat: with both there comes a grounding and, with careful nurturing, development and growth is achieved in a slow, balanced way.

The IYENGAR yoga classes he teaches are inclusive - Yoga for All. He has found great inspiration from BKS Iyengar’s lifelong dedication to making yoga inclusive rather than exclusive.

IYENGAR yoga is a dynamic type of yoga and these introductory IYENGAR yoga classes are suitable for healthy adults, regardless of stiffness and age. However there are some more serious medical conditions for which these classes would be unsuitable.

Please contact Tom prior to attending to check if these classes would be suitable for you.
