Yoga Classes. Yoga Retreats. Yoga Therapy.

Jane Macpherson is a Senior Yoga Teacher (500 hours IYTA accredted) with 20 years experience, a Qualified Yoga Therapist (British CNHC accredited) and a Director and Founder Member of the Yoga Therapy Association.   

She runs yoga classes in the Cotswolds, private yoga and yoga therapy sessions in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, and yoga retreats across the UK, Europe and Kerala, India.

Practising yoga leads to a stronger, more flexible body and a quieter mind. It is this union of body and mind that makes yoga so essential to our modern day way of life; helping us to overcome the effects of stress, over working, being forever time-poor or a sedentary lifestyle.

We also need to be able to switch off our incessant ‘internal mind chatter’, which can be exhausting and can cause our bodies to feel stiff and tired. Yoga brings an enhanced feeling of freedom and space to our body and spirit. Through the practice of the postures and the focus on the breath, we are able to bring ourselves into a sense of balance and harmony.
