Yoga and Somatics Classes in Sheffield

Sun Moon Yoga Classes are available for both complete beginner and those with more experience, so whatever your ability, we have a class to suit you.  

Classes are taught with the individual in mind, and students are encouraged to tune in to their body sensations and become aware of the breath, to find comfort and stability at each stage of their practice.  All classes involve mindful movement, steady postures and breath awareness to keep the body healthy, mobile and strong, and to bring the mind to the present moment.  

Yoga Classes in Sheffield are located in Hunters Bar (S11), Broomhill (S10) and Heeley (S2).

Which class suits me?

There are a variety of classes to suit all abilities and needs.  If you are an absolute beginner or just getting back into a yoga practice, you might like to try starting with the beginners classes. The other mixed level classes are for beginner plus level and intermediate.  If you are limited in movement, or have health conditions that may need some more specific attention, then the Yoga Therapy class may suit you.

What is Somatics?

‘Somatics’ is a term coined by Thomas Hanna PhD, that refers to the discipline of movement reeducation that enhances internal awareness of one’s body. Somatic perception is your own experience of how it feels to be you in your body. From the Greek word ‘soma’, meaning ‘of the body’, somatics can help us to get in touch with our inner bodily sensations and movement patterns or reflexes that often go unnoticed.

Thomas Hanna discovered that there are three basic reflexes in the body that are unconsciously created through our experiences to life. These reflexes can sometimes lead to unhelpful, awkward movements that create pain in the body, and agitation in the mind. Somatic movement uses simple techniques that teach the nervous system to relax held tensions allowing us to begin to move in a more coordinated, functional and pain free manner.
