Meet Yoga Teacher Anna Curnock...

 From a young age Anna went along to yoga classes with her mum, but it wasn’t until 2012, that Anna became really hooked on yoga and did her first training. In 2012 Anna left her city job and travelled to India searching for something different. Anna spent months immersing herself in traditional yoga in the South of India. Over the years her practice developed and she took a further teacher training under her favourite teacher, the world renowned Meghan Currie. Anna now teaches classes led by breath with a focus on flowing poses and individual healthy alignment. Her classes take you on a journey to become fully immersed in the experience of the present moment. She works with movement and breath to open the body up, release tension patterns and connect you to the higher intelligence of your body. All levels are welcome so please come and join in...touching your toes is not a prerequisite! 
  •  FLOW YOGA on Tuesdays morning at 7AM
A class for all abilities. The class will wake your body up, clear your mind and connect you to your breath to set you up for the day ahead.  
  • YIN YOGA Wednesdays at 6PM.
The perfect class to let you completely relax for the evening ahead. Yin is a gentle more meditative style of yoga. Poses are held for longer to work into the fascia. This style of yoga is influenced by meridians and can help really release tension patterns that have been held in the body for a long time and release energy blockages. Classes have a calming affect bringing you back into the bodies parasympathetic or ‘relax and digest’ nervous system. The class is gentle but the work is deep and can have profound affects. All levels welcome.

Meet Yoga Teacher Sarah Balmer...

Sarah has been teaching Yoga for over 5 years in Cornwall, and overseas whilst travelling in New Zealand.

She began her teaching journey in 2014, after completing a 200hr Yoga Teacher Training with Allie Hill & Toni Roberts at Yogahaven London.

Since then she has trained under the guidance of Keren Cooksey at Falmouth Yoga Space, completing a Level 250hr course in Sequencing, Bhakti & Tantra Studies.

She also attends regular CPD workshops when possible, taking advantage of the teachings of the many guest teachers that visit Cornwall.

In love with the playful element of the practice, last year she branched out into teaching Children’s Yoga, and completed a Children’s Yoga teacher training with Jane Cradick (Wellbeing Bees).

Sarah’s classes focus primarily on breath work, and linking body movement with the breath to create flowing Vinyasa sequences. These sequences of Yoga postures are like a dance with your own breath, whilst strengthening the muscles, improving flexibility, and encouraging a greater awareness of

our own body and mind.

Sarah introduces a fun and creative playfulness to yoga, balanced with elements of meditation and relaxation in every class.

You will also find a philosophical theme woven into every class, aiming to spark thought and to take you deeper into the practice.

  • VINYASA FLOW YOGA ~ Tuesdays 7.30pm
A dynamic flow to energise & invigorate body, mind & soul. These classes build both strength and flexibility. Expect to walk away feeling uplifted!

With options given throughout the class allowing you to make the practice suit your body, this class is suitable for all levels, although some experience of Yoga is recommended.

Meet Yoga teacher Ellie Murray…

Ellie first stepped on a yoga mat purely for physical reasons. As a windsurfing instructor in Greece, her body ached and she was keen to stretch and strengthen her muscles. It wasn’t until a few years later, during a surf and yoga retreat in Morocco, that she realised the practice went deeper than the physical level. Just like with surfing, yoga requires mental focus – being in the moment helps you to both catch a wave and flow through yoga postures. This awareness has deepened her practice, although the physical benefits are still a major reason she’s so passionate about yoga.

Ellie now teaches mixed-ability yoga classes, blending flowing sequences with attention to alignment. Her Surf Flow Yoga classes are ideal for surfers, but open to everyone. Each week is themed to target different muscle groups used for surfing, as well as flexibility, core strength, balance, breath control and focus.

Everyone is welcome – whether you've done yoga before or not, and whether you’re an experienced surfer or have never picked up a board (yet!).


SURF FLOW YOGA - Thursdays at 6:30PM

'Little Lion Yoga Kids Club'

with Andrea Ganoczy

There's nothing like doing yoga as a family. Sun Salutations are a fun and a generally easy form of yoga to practice together. Yoga poses are said to keep the energy channels of the body open and flowing properly, preventing a host of diseases.

Yoga is a moving meditation, the focus is on the practice itself, breathing, and the poses. We will make sure your Little Lions are breathing evenly during the whole practice. 

An increasing number of children have been showing elevated signs of stress, restlessness, and anxiety starting at a very early age. We know Yoga is a great tool to find peace and balance amid our hectic lives—that’s why we enjoy our practice. 

How do we get our kids to love Yoga, too?

Become the Change!

Children are prone to copying the behaviour of their parents. So starting them on a meditation/yoga journey can be as simple as leading by example. When your kids observe you in yoga, it sets a tone that children can learn from. 

8 Benefits of Yoga for Kids

1. Yoga is non-competitive.

In today’s world, we hear so much about being the best and achieving the most. Yoga teaches kids that their bodies are different; different bodies do different things and all of them are okay. There is no one better or worse at yoga than anyone else; we are all just exploring our bodies and learning from them in our own way. Yoga is truly for every body.

2. Yoga teaches self-acceptance.

In the same way that it provides children an opportunity to learn something that is non-competitive, it also teaches kids to accept and cherish themselves as they are. Again, with society sending so many messages of inadequacy, yoga teaches kids to love themselves.

Learned young, this incredibly valuable lesson arms kids with the tools to fight off the increasing feelings of self-doubt that come during the teen years and beyond.

3. Namaste: The light in me sees the light in you.

Yoga teaches acceptance and tolerance of others. In practicing yoga, kids learn early in life that all living beings are to be cherished and respected as they are, thus helping to create more peaceful local communities and a more peaceful world in our future.

4. Yoga encourages healthy habits.

Any exercise program begun in childhood helps kids to remain physically active and healthy as a lifestyle. However, yoga takes that further by teaching not only the healthy habits mentioned above, but also a healthy approach to eating and the ability to calm oneself and focus the mind.

5. Focus. Focus. Focus.

We live in a world of distractions. More and more these days, kids seem unable to focus on anything for any decent length of time. Yoga can help with that. It teaches kids to be present, and to concentrate and focus on their breathing.

They learn how the breath can help them throughout the day, in any situation. They learn to focus on the pose by learning correct body alignment, and in so doing, learn to focus on their bodies and how they function—guiding each limb or part of the body through the nuances of the pose.

6. Yoga teaches calming techniques.

Young kids deal with frustration most typically by crying and throwing tantrums. When they learn proper, healthy breathing techniques and tools to focus the mind, they begin to learn how to apply those tools in their everyday lives and to react appropriately to any situation.

I know as an adult, I see improvements in this area in myself. Just imagine if I head learned more of these techniques as a child!

7. Children learn self-awareness through yoga.

Again, in guiding their bodies through the poses, children learn more about their bodies and what they are capable of. They learn more about their minds, and how they can affect not only their own attitudes and approaches to life, but also the attitudes of others.

They learn that they can achieve this through their own thoughts and how they choose to react to any given situation. This awareness of the body, mind and spirit, and of what can be achieved when all three work together, helps children develop into more confident, kind, responsible adults.

8. Yoga supports positive mental health in children.

All of the above benefits tie together. When children learn to accept and love themselves for who they are, to see the good in others, to focus and calm their minds, and to be aware of their innate capabilities, they learn tools for resilience.

They are more likely to be positive and optimistic about life and their abilities, and will hopefully be less likely to succumb to anxiety, depression and other mental health issues that are so prevalent today.

Maybe most importantly, yoga teaches children that relaxation is not only allowed; it is encouraged. Relaxing is not easy and learning to relax takes practice. Yoga provides space for the mind to slow down and settle.

Children are always told that they need to be engaged and productive. Their little minds are leaping from one activity to another all day long, often right up until they crash at bedtime. Yoga teaches kids that it doesn’t have to always be like that.

If children can learn how to relax and be still, they will be able to handle better the stressors and pressures that will begin to hit them as they get older.


Children are actually natural yogis. Their innate trust in others, combined with their lack of inhibitions, allows them to receive the teachings of yoga and grow from them in inspiring ways. Adults have a lot to learn from the way children receive yoga! If we can lead them there, they will not only benefit, but they will enjoy it immensely.
