About Octopus Yoga
The name ‘Octopus Yoga’ refers to the 8 limbs of yoga: Yamas (Social ethics), Niyamas (personal practices), Asana (physical postures), Pranayama (honouring the breath), Pratyahara (withdrawal of the senses), Dharana (concentration), Dhyana (de-concentration) and Samadhi (complete integration).
I run yoga classes for adults and kids with a focus on peace and movement whilst also learning and experiencing some of these concepts.
For all levels

I absolutely love the adult yoga classes! Cheryl has such a warm, friendly teaching style and creates a really comfortable and welcoming environment. Her classes are great for beginners but also have lots of options for more experienced yogis. I always leave with a big smile and renewed energy to get me through the rest of the week, thank you!
Gentle, kind and knowledgeable instruction in a relaxing atmosphere and beautiful surroundings.
If anyone is looking for a wonderful yoga class for either yourself or your kids, I highly recommend Octopus Yoga run by Cheryl. Her classes are fun, relaxing and engaging. I attend her Wednesday adult sessions and my daughter Georgia just had her first lesson today and loved it!
