The research & benefits

Why Yoga?


Physiologically yoga can support the musculoskeletal system by increasing bone strength, reducing tension in the muscles and improving your posture etc.


Yoga benefits the nervous system by decreasing the heart rate, blood pressure, breathing and muscular tension, which therefore reducing stress, anxiety and improves sleep quality.​


Yoga can maximise the strength of joint movement, reducing the risk of injuries and improving performance.


Studies show that the brain's gamma-aminobutyric (GABA) levels spike after just a single hour of yoga, which means that yoga can change your brain chemistry and improve your mood.


Studies have found that regular yoga practice has found to reduce fatigue, anxiety and anger, supporting better physical and mental health.​


Yoga promotes self-awareness, and during yoga, the focus is internal. Yoga is a time to shift awareness to become aware of what is going on inside us — allowing us to become more focus.

Kind Words

"My main motives for practising yoga is to improve my body's flexibility and strength whilst, reducing stress through relaxation. From regular practice at NamasJay's classes I have seen progress in my ability to perform positions in flow with my breath, helping reduce strain in each position. My body feels refreshed after a morning class, which prepares me for the day in a settled way. It is clear how regular attendance to Jay's yoga classes, helps my mind and body relax, making it useful for the general fast pace of day to day life."
"Jay is a brilliant teacher. He makes you feel very welcome as a beginner. Yoga has been really helpful with stress relief. I look forward to my weekly yoga class as it's a time to unwind and relax. It helps me focus my mind to concentrate on the here and now. Starting a weekly yoga class gave me confidence in myself and my body. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to pick it up." ​
“I love Thursday classes. Look forward to my Thursday yoga every single week, and love the calmness of the surroundings.” - Kath
"I'm a busy, lone parent with a full-time job and I find it difficult to switch off and relax when I have a constant list of tasks that need doing running through my head.  Yoga sessions with Jay give me the chance to shut out everything else and focus on just stretching and breathing. I suffer with head and neck pain and I've noticed that these have become less frequent when I regularly attend sessions. I always sleep better following the classes and frequently use the breathing and relaxation techniques I've learned in class for those occasions when I'm finding it hard to get to sleep. Class sizes are relatively small so there's the opportunity to request stretches to target specific body areas. Jay is always very friendly and approachable and happy to discuss any queries or adapt exercises as necessary. "
