Absolutely and I have a file of beginners classes which are great to get you going – we move a little slower and I break things down so you understand and feel comfortable with what we are trying to achieve. All of my classes (except the odd one or two which you will see listed) are open level and I really do try my best to give everyone options.
FAQ’s about the JL Collective
- I am a complete beginner can I still join?
- I have tried yoga before but I was a little scared off by the chanting and the ‘other stuff’
- Is there a contract or can I cancel my membership at any time?
I hear you! I joined yoga for the physical benefits I was playing a lot of hockey at university and I needed something help my mobility and flexibility. My classes are very alignment focused, that’s not to say we don’t take time to work on our breath and sit in stillness every now and then but on the whole I like to think they offer beginners or those new to the world of yoga a pretty gentle introduction.
Our memberships are on a rolling monthly direct debit, as long as you cancel before your next payment there is absolutely no problem and your account will simply shut on the due date of that next payment.

We welcome guests with a variety of yoga experience, however taking a few classes prior to your arrival will simply ensure you get the most out of your stay. Beginners, you are in safe hands with clear instruction and plenty of guidance. More experienced yogis, you will be given the opportunity to challenge yourself and improve your practice.
Yoga is about understanding your own body, respecting ongoing injuries, preventing future ones and enhancing you overall wellbeing. As an Osteopath I teach a very alignment focused, safe and structured yoga class – if undiagnosed we will help you to understand your injury and work with it. We also offer a selection of treatments on our Yoga Retreats.
Absolutely, at least half of our guests are solo bookings so you certainly won’t feel like you are on your own. You will be surrounded by other welcoming, like minded guests. However, on the flip of this if you are booking a Retreat in search of headspace and down time our venues offer individuals the luxury of peace and privacy.
Our Retreats are mixed, often there are one or two more women with us however we usually welcome several couples on each retreat and we have male trainers in the team too!
