Due to COVID-19, all classes are

ONLINE ONLY until further notice

Face to Face Classes

NOT CURRENTLY RUNNING

Regular in-person classes are held in Fair Oak, Horton Heath and Eastleigh. For information about locations and venues click here.

Choose to attend weekly and book a 'half term block' of classes or drop in when you can and sign up and pay for individual classes . A booking confirmation will be sent to you via email.

In the case of a face to face class being full, it is worth checking the booking system again 24 hours before a class and emailing Jo to let her know (as circumstances sometimes change last minute).

Sessions are all one hour long (unless otherwise specified) and follow the weeks of the school term (University of Southampton and private class dates may vary).​​ 

Unless instructed otherwise, please bring your own yoga mat and any props that you may like to use. It is not currently possible to borrow equipment.​​​

In addition to attending your chosen weekly "live" class, you will also have access to a recording of that week's session, which you can replay as many times as you want, until the start of the next half-term.

Please note the social distancing rules and safety measures currently
in venues (see COVID Secure Class Guidelines leaflet).

 

Online Classes via Zoom

 

Jo will be able to see students through the camera on their device and you will be able to see and hear her. Students' microphones will be muted during the main part of the class to reduce background noise but there will be an opportunity to speak to each other before and after the class.

Choose to attend weekly and book a 'half term block' of classes or drop in when you can and sign up and pay for individual classes. A booking confirmation will be sent to you via email with details of the Zoom link.

Sessions are all one hour long (unless otherwise specified) and follow the weeks of the school term (University of Southampton and private class dates may vary).​​   

Classes cost £6 per session if you book a block or £7 for an individual session.

You will receive a link to watch a replay of the week's class at the end of the week.

Find yourself a safe place to practice, with a yoga mat and enough space around you to raise your arms up above and out to the sides and to lie down full length on the floor. Have any other props which you might like to use nearby (yoga blocks, a cushion, a blanket, extra layers and anything else that makes you feel comfortable).

In addition to attending your chosen "live" class, you will also have access to a recording of that week's session, which you can replay as many times as you want, until the start of the next half-term.  

Depending on which device you are using, you may need to download the app as follows:

"Movers & Soothers" on Facebook

NEW

The 'Movers and Soothers' Facebook Group is a new idea to encourage people to practice yoga more regularly, offering short, 30-minute classes via Facebook.

 

Our fun and friendly page offers you accountability, a sense of community and conversations between likeminded souls.

Facebook classes are offered live, twice a week, on a subscription basis and accessed via a Private Facebook Group.

You will need access to a Facebook account in order to be able to join in with the classes (to create a Facebook account go to www.facebook.com and click Create new account). 

For a monthly subscription of £15 you will be given access to a Private Facebook Group containing all of the classes. 

SPECIAL OFFER: Join up in February or March to trial this with me for just £10!

 

Select the 'Movers and Soothers Facebook Group' on Bookwhen just like you were signing up for a normal class. Next, search on Facebook groups for 'Movers and Soothers Yoga with Jo' and request to join the group. Once your payment has been received, I will approve your request and you will be able to access the page on Facebook whenever you like. 😊

We have a quiet corner of the internet which will be kept completely private and will only be visible to those who are approved members.

 

Two 30-minute classes each week. Classes will go out live at 8am on Mondays and 12.30pm on Thursdays. The sessions will be a mixture of gentle uplifting flows, slow stretches, breathing practices and meditations. New sessions will be delivered every week that Ananda Yoga classes are running. 

You will be able to see me, but I won't be able to see you. You can type in 'Comments' and reactions, so we can communicate with each other at the start and end of the class.

 

You are also encouraged to let me know what you liked/loved/struggled with/want to do in future etc. so join the chat on Facebook between classes. This is your chance to ask questions, say how you are feeling, put in requests and chat to like-minded people and discuss all things yoga within the safety of a private group.

If you can't make a live class, the latest video (and all the videos that went before it) will be there for you whenever you are ready to practice yoga!

You will have access to the group for the month which you have subscribed. As well as the new, live classes, all of the videos will remain up on Facebook, so you will also have access to all of the accumulated content from the prior weeks and months. As new classes continue to be added, you will have an entire yoga library at your fingertips!  

The monthly subscription runs from the first to the last day of the calendar month. Please note that, whilst you can book and subscribe at any time, membership is not offered on a pro-rata basis if you sign up after 1st of the calendar month. A reminder will be sent out when new subs are due (close to the start of the next rolling month). 

If you decide not to subscribe the following month, you will simply be removed from the group when the new calendar month begins.

Checkout Facebook to follow Ananda Yoga with Jo for yoga updates and for Facebook help and information.

 

Policies & FAQs

Bookings & Payments

Weekly sessions run in half-term blocks for five, six or seven weeks at a time (depending on school term dates) then break for school holidays (click here to view term time dates). 

I understand that some people’s lives mean that they are not able to commit to attending yoga at the same time every week (I’ve been there in the past myself and I have felt that this has excluded me from signing up to some yoga courses) therefore, you have the choice to commit to a block of classes and benefit from a lower price per class, or you can sign up for individual classes if you prefer.

 

When you sign up for classes an email will be sent to you with the details about how to join the class.

Your place is not confirmed until full payment has been received.

In the case of a face to face class or workshop being full, it is worth emailing or texting Jo to let her know you are interested (as circumstances sometimes change last minute).

You can also contact Jo about making alternative or extraordinary payments for classes.

Class Timings

Face to Face and Zoom Ananda Yoga sessions are all one hour long, unless otherwise specified, and follow the weeks of the school term (University of Southampton and private class dates may vary).​​ 

Facebook Live classes are 30 minutes.

Workshop timings vary and details are given for each individual event.

Equipment

Unless instructed otherwise, please bring your own yoga mat and any props that you may like to use. It is not currently possible to borrow equipment.​​​

Changes to Classes, Transfers, Refunds & Cancellations

Things happen, plans change. In the case of not being able to attend a class that you have booked onto, please send a text or email where possible.

You are able to change individual class bookings on the booking system yourself up to 24 hours ahead of the start time of your class and can transfer the session to another class that is within 10 weeks of the original class date booked.

If you cannot switch to a different class time yourself or have another issue with the booking system, please send an email in good time and something can usually be sorted out. 😊

Refunds for will only be given in exceptional cases (unless I am unable to provide the classes you have paid for in which case a choice of transfer or refund will be offered).

Please note these are challenging times and face to face classes may need to switch to online yoga should the situation change. If this becomes necessary, students will be informed by email as soon as possible and transfers or refunds offered.
