Welcome to Jojoba Yoga!
Here at Jojoba Yoga we are passionate about Yoga and the positive effect it can have on your life. We specialise in Chakra Yoga, a unique method of teaching based on traditional Hatha Yoga but with a focus on the 7 main energy centres of the body (the Chakras) to release vital energy and calm the mind, improving health, fitness and wellbeing.
The Chakra Yoga method is unique to Jojoba Yoga and has been created by Jo over her 25 years of practitioner experience, teaching experience, sport yoga and successful holistic therapy, reiki and massage practice. Chakra Yoga brings together all aspects of yoga, breath, posture, meditation, colour and sound therapy to provide a full and exciting way to deepen your yoga practice and experience the vast range of yoga healing techniques.
The Workshops & Courses are fun & informal combining traditional & modern yoga, functional sport yoga, energetic flows & meditation and mindfulness techniques to get you fit & zen in one go! This ensures you get some strength work, a good stretch out and some deep relaxation, along with a strong focus on breath to cleanse, heal & energise.
Through our unique Chakra Yoga Workshops and Courses, we hope to develop your understanding and practice of yoga in a fun way, providing space to connect with the body in a safe, nurturing environment, assisting health, fitness, recovery and healing.
We hope to welcome you to the Jojoba Yoga Studio soon!
