Working with mind and body to strive for calm and balance
I offer a range of yoga classes, some face to face in the Devizes area, others a mixture of face to face and Zoom and some are online only. Sessions are mostly for women only (except Chair Yoga) and all are designed to help participants find a sense of balance and inner calm.
In addition to working with a range of groups I also offer 1:1 tailor-made yoga sessions (£60 per hour)
which can also be recorded for the exclusive use of the individual participant.
Women's Wellness Wiltshire offers Yoga classes during Pregnancy and the Postnatal period; Fertility Yoga; Yoga for the Menopause;
Well Woman Yoga (for women of all ages) and Chair yoga, for anyone with physical challenges (or even a lack of floor space)
to help with physical, mental and emotional well-being.
Well Woman Yoga
These classes are available in person:

and online via Zoom:
"I am definitely in the 'beyond' category and had only ever been to one yoga class in my life before. I thoroughly enjoyed and benefitted from Cathy's zoom yoga classes. Despite being spread out across the country, Cathy developed a camaraderie. Cathy clearly explained and demonstrated all yoga moves which was essential for a novice like me. I have really benefitted from the exercises and learnt ways to help with shoulder pain every day. If you are considering yoga, I can highly recommend Cathy's classes."
(Louise, July 2020)
"I really love Well Woman Yoga is. I only discovered it in lockdown and have found it to be the best class I've every attended. And I've been to a few as I'm also a yoga teacher! Couldn't recommend it more, such a highlight to my week." (Gemma, May 2021)
"Thanks for another lovely session Cathy. It was like a warm hug." (Cordelia Dec 2020)
These classes are available 'in studio' and online via Zoom on a Wednesday evening 6.00pm-7.15pm
"Cathy's yoga classes were the highlight of my pregnancies and early months with both of my children. Pregnancy yoga gave me time to focus on me and my growing bump and postnatal yoga allowed quality time to bond with my baby. I recommend her classes unreservedly... She is a very special lady!"
(Anna, May 2020)
"I have been to Cathy's pregnancy, mum & baby and well woman classes over the last 4 years. She is intuitive in the way she describes postures, always knowing when to remind us to relax certain parts of the body, or breath! She improvises working in postures to help if anyone has specific needs or injuries. And I always feel physically better and more relaxed after her classes. Highly recommended!" (Lisa May 2021)
Mum & Baby Yoga
These sessions take place 'in person' only on a
Wednesday morning 11.00am-12.15pm
"I can whole heartedly recommend Cathy. She has made the most of lockdown and by providing zoom yoga she has enabled me and my newborn a sense of normality - allowing us to try something out from the comfort of home. She is incredibly generous, caring, flexible and understanding. I’m incredibly grateful to have discovered her!"
(Fran August 2020)
Friday morning 11am-12 noon only online via Zoom.
"I felt an unexpected lightness and vitality after just one almost effortless session of Chair Yoga with Cathy" (Alex, Sept 2020)
"Since my injury going to yoga has been difficult. Cathy's Chair Yoga was fabulous, she enabled me to work with what I can do now so that I could get as much benefit from the session as possible. I felt so much better, more relaxed and in a more positive frame of mind that beforehand. Thank you Cathy!" (Frances, September 2020)
"I find these yoga sessions very friendly and it is easy to follow Cathy's instructions. The classes are gentle but do have a positive effect - my knees are more flexible and it improves my mental outlook"
(Barbara, October 2020)
Fertility Yoga & Yoga for the Menopause
With a passion for supporting women through times of hormonal transition, Well Woman Yoga classes can be a great place to build up a range of practices for reproductive health and hormonal balance.
For more individualised practices women can book 1:1 'yoga therapy' sessions focusing on their own specific needs. This gentle approach can help women to integrate yoga into their daily lives in a therapeutic way, whatever their personal circumstances. Supporting wellbeing and health through conception, fertility treatment, menstruation symptoms (e.g. endometriosis or painful periods) or challenges during the menopause (e.g. hot flushes and mood swings).
"I had a prolapse last year - it was horrible. I'm now symptomless after some focused yoga practice. I did a one to one with Cathy and then she recorded a 30 minute session for me. I did it every day at first but now I do it just three times a week."
Yoga breathing is shown to help alleviate symptoms of fluctuating hormones and promote balance. Inner peace and calm are enhanced. Pelvic health can be improved and energy levels increased.
One to One sessions are usually led online via Zoom where the session can be recorded so that it can be re-used many times.
Each session is tailor-made to the individual to meet their specific needs (cost £60.00 for one hour).
