Yoga in Darlington & Hurworth... back to venues & online via Zoom!
ALOLA YOGA supports Cancer Research UK

About

My name is Karen and I have practised yoga for over 20 years.  I have found yoga has helped me through many of life's challenges and want to share the benefits with others, which is why I trained to be a BWY (British Wheel of Yoga) teacher.  I believe yoga is for everyone and can help people build strength, improve flexibility and reduce stress.  

Yoga classes are usually held in Darlington and Hurworth and are designed to help you challenge yourself to improve within a safe and non-competitive environment.  Returning to venues in September 2020 as well as online via Zoom

  • You will find a blanket useful for the relaxation section of the class in particular

  • Try not to eat a large meal prior to your class

  • Please wear comfortable clothes (leggings/shorts/vest) that are not too loose to bunch up or too tight to restrict movement.

For Online Classes

In addition to the "Extra Information" there are some additional considerations

  • Classes are booked by the half-term but contact me for a taster session if you wish to check online sessions are right for you

  • Please join the "Zoom" waiting room about 10 - 15 minutes before the start time in case of technical issues

  • Make sure you have plenty of room to move your arms and legs and that the space around you is clear and safe

  • Have any props you like to use handy (or alternatives like belts, books or cushions)

  • Make sure your equipment is fully charged or, ideally, connected to a charger. If you can connect to your router with an ethernet cable this will help your internet stability.

  • Try linking to your TV via an HDMI cable or screen sharing to give you a bigger screen.
