Let the waters settle and you will see the moon and stars mirrored in your own being.
At Yoga Avenue classes take place in a light and airy studio at the bottom of the garden! Class sizes are deliberately kept small (8 max) to enable individual attention with gentle hands on assists to help you enjoy the full benefit of your yoga practice.
Whether you are looking to let go of tension, bring a little more calm and balance into your life, increase your flexibility, build strength or deal with a specific health issue; a regular yoga practice can yield incredible benefits. By combining breathe work (pranayama) with alignment focused physical poses (asana) and bliss filled relaxation (savasana) you can quite simply begin to realise a more centered, happier, healthier version of You.
Yoga Avenue classes are suitable for all levels - regardless of age, size or fitness. With an emphasis on awareness and self compassion, alternative poses and modifications, (using specific props where relevant) are offered throughout. Gift yourself the opportunity to develop your practice as you release the binds holding you back, and relax into the flow in a truly friendly, warmly welcoming, supportive and nurturing environment.
During the current pandemic online and in-person classes are currently being offered. Class sizes are reduced to ensure social distancing is maintained. Please visit my Classes page to view the current timetable on offer. I hope that you will find something there that serves your needs and situation during this difficult time.

"I was introduced to Yoga Avenue about a year ago by some dear friends who drew me into sessions at Tickenham Village Hall.I had never experienced Yoga before and quickly found I really liked it.Emma pitched the sessions flexibly to suit all levels, and did this with such grace and humour that I immediately felt at ease. Her welcoming smile is always present. This year yoga has become very important to me. I have Long Covid after contracting Covid 19 in March. This came on top of a bereavement in January.When restrictions eased Emma offered distanced yoga on the village field ( Park Yoga) when the weather allowed.Some days I was only able to do a few moves, then I lay and rested in the shade of the tree. Emma was very accepting and understanding of my situation.Encouraged and supported by my lovely friends, Yoga led by Emma is relaxing, therapeutic and fun. I always feel better afterwards. Thank you Emma!" Donna Van Der Weyden
"Emma is a real pro who combines her teaching role with a light and fun approach. I've had several yoga teachers over 25 years and haven't had a better one. Thoroughly recommended for all levels." David
"Emma is absolutely amazing! Her classes are fun, supportive and always encourage you to listen to your body and respond. I am always fascinated by the detailed knowledge that Emma has about the practice of yoga, it’s history, mythology and connections to spirituality. I leave every class with something new to think about and explore. I also leave every class in a better place than where I started!" Mel Marshall
"I’ve been going to Emma’s classes both in-person and online for about 18 months.. Emma is incredibly versatile and her classes are always enjoyable ranging from Vinyasa Flow, classic Hatha, Yin, Yoga Nidra and my favourite are the goddess inspired classes which explore the philosophy and krias as well as beautiful asanas and mudras which she weaves into the theme so well- literally the highlight of my week. I have back issues and her knowledge of anatomy is incredible- she can offer modifications to suit me whenever I need them. When we are not restricted by Covid, she’s really happy to hands-on assist which I love. I’m very lucky to know a lot of yoga teachers, but what really stands out for me is how much time Emma will put into preparing for her classes. It’s not too serious either, so we have fun and as a result, even the zoom groups feel like a community. I don’t know how she does it, but she’s a gifted, knowledgeable teacher- quite exceptional." Petranella Manuel
"Emma's classes are a joy. She understands that we are not all made in the same way and have different abilities and ambitions. I always come away from class feeling that I have received help and kind attention to enable me to achieve the best level that I can. " Ruth Bruton
