Welcome to The Art of Yoga
The Art of Yoga offer a range of yoga classes and workshops in Worthing, West Sussex. Many of the classes are designed exclusively for women to nurture and support their wellbeing. The ethos behind The Art of Yoga is to offer yoga in an accessible and enjoyable way. Yoga is a practice, one which enhances your sense of physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. Our yoga offerings invite you to begin your yoga practice from where you are as we truly believe that yoga is for every BODY. In addition to yoga for women we will soon be offering yoga for teenagers and pre-teens to support their health and wellbeing during a time of great transition. We also run regular mindfulness workshops. The Art of Yoga was founded by Shirley Gain, a yoga teacher and mindfulness coach. Please do feel free to get in touch if you have any queries or would like to book a class or workshop.
I started yoga with Shirley last June, not in the best of states - quite stressed and with a dodgy hip. Six months later and I'm now back to full stretch in Tailor pose and much more relaxed, strong and flexible. I've come to see my Women's yoga sessions, not as a luxury, but as vital weekly moments of calm and self-care that are necessary to balance a busy life as a part-time working Mum. Thanks Shirley!
Shirley is an amazing teacher. She is calm, patient and funny, not to mention hugely knowledgeable. She understands how the body works, but more importantly, how your mind works too. I love our sessions, being inexperienced with yoga I wasn't too sure what to expect, but have found that under the umbrella of the term yoga there are moves which energise, as well as moves which stretch and relax. I have ended each one feeling blissfully relaxed, calm, grounded and ready to face the challenges that life presents. I think this is entirely down to her skill as a teacher and her warmth as a person.
Shirley’s classes are perfect for the unconfident and unsure beginner as well as those who have been doing it for several years or if you have had a break. She gives you plenty of alternatives to make each pose work within the bounds of your abilities. Shirley is extremely patient and approachable and she makes her classes extremely beneficial for both body and mind. She has a bubbly personality and I look forward to seeing her and doing the class each week.
