Studio and hub values/culture

The primary objective of ‘Choose YOU – yoga studio and wellness hub’ and its instructors/therapists is to improve the well-being of every person who passes through the doors.

The ethos behind ‘Choose YOU’ is to encourage students/clients to prioritise themselves and their own health.  As such we will offer as wide a range of yoga classes, holistic treatments and wellness related events as possible.

Our studio and hub ‘culture’ should reflect our objective and ethos.  The values we should adhere to include openness, authenticity, kindness and compassion. 

Towards ourselves and each other, as well as clients.  At all times we should work with integrity and intention.  Our work should aim to be honest, meaningful, effective and bring about real change for those we teach and treat.

Terms & Conditions for classes
EvaOm realise that not everyone can commit to block bookings. Classes are often full however and sometimes have waiting lists. To cater for all we will keep two spaces in full classes for pay-as-you-go students.

If you wish to guarantee your space and avoid disappointment we advise that you book for the full term. Pay-as-you-go spaces will be allocated on a first come first served basis and should be paid for on the day. Individual classes will be priced slightly higher than pro-rata term classes to ensure benefit to those who commit to block bookings.

Students who book more than one term of EvaOm weekly classes (adult) i.e. two classes per week, will receive a 20% discount on the second term. Concessions will receive a 10% discount.

EvaOm also offer a discounted summer term price allowing for everyone to take a two week holiday at some point. The discounted term will be the same for all and will be whichever 10 week block falls in most of July.

The Choose YOU studio will close for two weeks over Christmas and New Year.

Cancellation policy: EvaOm cannot offer a refund for classes not attended. Should you find that a class term you have selected is unsuitable we will try, where possible, to find an alternative that suits your requirements. A refund may be offered for a term booked where another student is willing to take your place.

An explanation of different classes

An explanation of different styles of yoga classes available at Choose YOU:

Iyengar – Classes are relatively strong (in yoga terms) and have a focus on alignment and strength building as well as flexibility. The aim is to bring about real change in the awareness of your body while always having an effective relaxation period at the end of each class. The Iyengar teaching training course is intense and rigorous with a pass rate of only 59% in the UK.

Ashtanga Yoga’s Vinyasa system is sequences of postures that vary in difficulty and benefit. The flow between each posture is an integral part of the practice. There are three groups of movement sequences: The Primary Series which cleanses and tunes the physical body. The Intermediate Series which purifies the nervous system and the Advanced Series’ which cultivates strength and grace. Each series of postures must be accomplished before proceeding to the next. The sequential process of learning Ashtanga allows the practitioner to develop the concentration, strength, flexibility and stamina needed to progress in a safe, balanced and optimal manner. Postures are linked together through flowing movement (vinyasa). Vinyasa means breath synchronized with movement. In Ashtanga Yoga the movement is always synchronized with the breath. The result is an open heart and a clear mind in a light and strong body. Ashtanga yoga is a yoga transmitted to the modern world by Sri K.Pattabhi Jois (1948 – 2009).

Vinyasa flow – Vinyasa is a style of yoga characterized by stringing postures together so that you move from one to another, seamlessly, using breath. Commonly referred to as “flow” yoga. Vinyasa classes offer a variety of postures and no two classes are ever alike.

Seasonal yoga – is based around working with the energy meridian lines and the related internal organs. The intention is that this focus results in us feeling physically, mentally and spiritually balanced after the practice. We aim to tune in to the individual season and then listen to the needs of our bodies. From that point we adjust, bringing balance and hopefully return ourselves to a neutral and revitalised state.

Hatha yoga – Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. Hatha, pronounced Ha Ta is the umbrella of all yoga. The word “hatha” can be translated two ways: as “willful” or “forceful,” or the yoga of activity, and as “sun” (ha) and “moon” (tha), the yoga of balance. Hatha is also translated as ha meaning “sun” and tha meaning “moon.” This refers to the balance of masculine aspects—active, hot, sun—and feminine aspects—receptive, cool, moon—within all of us. Hatha yoga is a path toward creating balance and uniting opposites.

Yin Yoga – is a slow-paced style of yoga as exercise, incorporating principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine, with asanas (postures) that are held for longer periods of time. For beginners, asanas may be held from 45 seconds to two minutes; more advanced practitioners may stay in one asana for five minutes or more.

Restorative yoga is a practice that is all about slowing down and opening your body through passive stretching. … During the long holds of restorative yoga, however, your muscles are allowed to relax deeply. It’s a unique feeling because props, rather than your muscles, are used to support your body.

Yoga nidra promotes deep rest and relaxation that isn’t found in your average meditation practice. The stages of body scan and breath awareness alone can be practiced to calm the nervous system, leading to less stress and better health.

What our clients say

Eva's yoga classes are incredibly energising - it's like pressing a big 'reset' button on mind and body every single week! Her instructions for the poses are detailed and clear, with different levels of challenge depending on where you are in practice. And I always get my best night's sleep on yoga class night!

Editor & Manager, Konect Magazines

I was recommended three years ago to join Eva's class at Choose You Yoga and what an impact it has had on my mind, body and soul! Eva is a truly special teacher, who gives incredible insight and detailed instruction within her practice. She is an extremely positive teacher and offers excellent (and achievable) alternatives, when the body will not comply. A consummate professional.
