Do any of these sound like you?

  • Your body is feeling achy and stiff

  • You struggle with stress or anxiety

  • You want the benefits of a regular yoga practice, but you’re not sure where to start (or re-start)

  • You don’t feel able to keep up with an “all-levels” yoga class

  • You don’t have accountability to maintain a regular yoga practice

Imagine if you were:

  • Being guided to practice yoga in an accessible and gentle way

  • Creating a strong and flexible body

  • Feeling less stress and enjoying life more

  • Learning foundational yoga postures and flows

  • Enjoying a friendly group with accountability and support from me (Sharon)

All that is possible when you join Beginner Friendly Yoga Classes

Sharon is a great teacher and brings a stillness within the room. I am new to yoga but love the classes and it really has stilled my mind, brought back some strength and flexibility to body, and I have been able to transfer some of the practices to other aspects of my life! Thank you Sharon!” -L.K.

Start your journey to creating a stronger more flexible body and calmer mind!

Who are these classes for?

Beginners: You are new to yoga, and don’t know where to start, or you don’t feel able to keep up with a group class. Maybe you lack motivation, despite knowing about the physical, mental, and emotional benefits of yoga. You don’t have accountability to keep up with your yoga practice.

Returners: You have practiced yoga before, but want to be guided in an accessible and gentle way. You don’t have support to get back into your yoga practice.

 

Who is this NOT for?

People who want advanced or fast-paced yoga.

Please note: You do not need any prior yoga experience. However, you do need to be comfortable with getting up and down off your mat, and you will be moving your whole body. You are strongly encouraged to modify anything that doesn’t feel good, and to rest as needed.

“Lovely session tonight! Felt lovely and relaxed afterwards – thank you!☺️” -A.C.

Sharon Rayner, Yoga Teacher

Hi, I’m Sharon!

I’m a yoga teacher, and I teach beginner friendly yoga flow in Littlehampton, West Sussex, UK and online.

I hear many people say that they would like to practice yoga, but they don’t know where to start. Another concern I hear is that “all-levels” yoga classes are too difficult. I have found that many people prefer a gentler approach to yoga. I am passionate about helping people increase strength, flexibility, balance, and achieve a calm mind, through yoga that is taught in an accessible and gentle way.

I have had a personal Vinyasa Flow Yoga practice since 2005. This style of yoga involves connecting one posture to the next using the breath and is considered a moving meditation. Through regular practice, I found that I felt better in my body, especially in my joints, and I resolved some hip and back pain and stiffness (likely caused by working in an office). My breathing and posture improved, my stress levels reduced, and I felt an unexpected improvement in my mood after each class.

After graduating from my Yoga Teacher Training in 2018, I began teaching straightaway. Since then, I have taken additional trainings including the art of teaching beginners, injury prevention and management, and yoga sequencing.

I teach Beginner Friendly Yoga Classes in Littlehampton and online because I know they will help you. Each week, I will gently lead you through a 1-hour yoga class. I specialise in leading gentle movement-based yoga classes without advanced or fast movements. I offer suggested options and variations for many of the poses.

“Wonderful classes, you learn and you learn and you change if not in some small way, not to mention they are fun! ⭐I’m in🥰” -O.K.

What’s included?

Beginner Friendly Yoga Classes

I specialise in leading gentle movement-based yoga classes without advanced or fast movements. I offer suggested options and variations for many of the poses, and the classes are great for both beginners and advanced practitioners.

Each class is well balanced with both flowing and stable postures.

  • Classes typically start reclined to ground and bring awareness to the breath, connecting you to the present moment.

  • You’ll gently warm up with floor-based movements.

  • Then, you’ll practice slow beginner-friendly sun salutations to link movement and breath, further warm the body, and stretch and strengthen all major muscle groups.

  • A series of standing and balancing postures will ground and strengthen.

  • Then, it’s back to floor-based postures, this time to hold stretches and cool the body back down.

  • You’ll end reclined in Savasana for final rest and relaxation and to absorb the effects of the practice.

After class, feel free to ask questions or discuss with me how you are getting on.
