This summer, enjoy a variety of offerings according to each teacher. Take careful note of dates and times so you don't miss out on anything! 

  • Evolve with a daily practice with Eliot; June 27 to July 8
  • NEW: SYLLABUS CLASS. As many of you know, Centre Yoga is a Registered Yoga Teacher Training School, and within this role it supports both students of yoga and teachers of yoga in their evolution.  The syllabus class is meant to encourage both the refinement of the teacher's instruction skills and clarify the students knowledge of the āsanas of a particular level.  The teacher systematically guides students into each āsana (yoga posture) with concise and simple instructions, all the while reviewing the necessary actions required.

Bobby Clennell's monthly pose



This month :

June —
Viparita Dandasana &
Chatoosh Padasana with chair
(Back bend over a chair)

Each month, starting January 2016 and continuing through December 2016, I will present illustrations and concise instructions for a yoga pose that you can practice along with. Strung together, the completed twelve poses make up a yoga session that is appropriate for beginners and experienced students alike. The completed sequence incorporates a warm up at the start, then poses to take you through a wide range of movement and focused work. These include standing poses to build strength and inverted poses to boost immunity and hormonal balance. The sequence finishes with some cooling poses.

My best wishes to all. Enjoy your practice!

Bobby Clennell
