Namaste dear Friends and Students…

It looks like we’ll be teaching all classes online well into July. Then as lockdown eases and new guidelines are issued, we will know how many people we can have in person at The Yoga Hall. We will teach live classes that you will also be able to join online if we are full, or if you need to stay at home. We will sell live attendance places here, through the website, on a first to book basis and at the same price and price options as online bookings.

Classes with Laura or Finlay from our dedicated ‘studio’ upstairs The Yoga Hall are working very well. It is so nourishing to see your faces on a regular basis and we are so encouraged by all your glowing feedback.


Lou is teaching from the New Forest, and Liz, Rob, Irene and Anahata are teaching from their homes.

Our next Restorative Yoga with Laura and Lou is on 28th June. We don’t know yet whether it will be online or at The Yoga Hall, but either way you can already book HERE.

We have really enjoyed welcoming students who are currently based in Italy, Germany, Spain and Amsterdam along with the regular St Albans community.  If you have not yet tuned in to a class we encourage you to do so, and tell all your international friends!  We have all been very happy with how well it all works to raise our vibration, and the “live” class keeps up the community vibe.  We make time for check-in at the beginning of each class and those who wish can take time to talk afterwards.  Some folks are even baking The Yoga Hall cookies to enjoy with a cup of tea after the session.

Some students are treating themselves to a home retreat and coming to as many classes as they can!

In our uncertain times, we have also taken the bold step of inviting you to join our classes in a spirit of generosity. It must be worthwhile, dynamic and sustainable. We want you to feel welcome to participate, and we also need to cover The Yoga Hall’s costs.  In order to open the doors of The Yoga Hall again once freedom of movement is resumed, we need to continue to pay rent, utilities and maintenance whilst we are teaching online.

You are the one who identifies your contribution. The suggested price honourably covers the “hard marginal costs” of your participation. Those who contribute more (thank you!) make it possible to include some who cannot. Some valued participants can only afford a lower amount. Just go ahead and identify it, down to £5. We are very excited to welcome you as part of this courageous and generous community!

To book for a class, here is the link to our Zoom class shop which is updated frequently:-

If this is your first experience with our Zoom classes, please allow a bit of time to book a class, register with Zoom and familiarise  yourself with the Zoom App. You can download a free app for your computer or mobile device HERE and create a free account for yourself.  When you purchase a ticket from our shop, you will be sent a unique link to join that class.

If you still have classes left on a voucher, you can text Finlay or Laura which class you intend to join and we will reply with the session ID and Password so you can sign off your voucher on camera.

Please help us spread the word.  Share your experience of our online classes with your friends & family as well as on social media.

Thank you for all the positive feedback and support we have received in the last weeks.  We are very grateful to be able to continue to connect with you all virtually and look forward to seeing you on Zoom.
