Yoga Yard was established in January 2019, by Joanne Reid when she was given the opportunity by John Mcgrath to open a Yoga school within the Yard gym in Val de Vie. They met accidentally for a chat on the Wednesday, and by the following Monday the school was open and giving classes.
The school is passionate about brining yoga to the western world, where absolutely everyone can enjoy the benefits of the practice. We offer a range of classes, from Yin, to Ashtanga, Vinyana Flow, and more. The classes are tailored for the very beginner, to the more advanced student.
The team consists of 6 teachers, who each bring something unique and different to the practice. The experience and training behind them is vast, coming from schools like Yoga Life, Hot Yoga studio, The Shala and more. We are truly blessed to have such an incredible team of teachers all here in our beautiful valley.
One thing we all agree on, is that our focus for classes is on stress release, breathing, relaxation, fitness, and overall health and wellness. Even a 30 minute of Yoga each day can reduce stress and improve health dramatically. All you have to do is arrive and give it a chance, the Yoga will do the rest.
During the lock down period, and for some time to come, we will be hosting all our classes on our website, via daily videos, each day being a new video, 7 days a week. There will also be daily 17:00 Zoom classes for those who would like to feel connected to the outside world.
We really encourage you to join us, do something great for yourself, that will last with you a lifetime.
