Clubs & Activities – Adults York

Wellbeing, Yoga & Pilates

Hi, my name is Diane and I help women create an active lifestyle for fitness and wellbeing.

We all know that an active lifestyle is a cornerstone of our wellbeing, both physically and mentally, but fitting it into modern life can often seem challenging. Maybe you feel like you just don’t have enough time or energy? I can help you overcome this.

Here’s what some of my clients have said about me:

“Diane made a massive difference to my mindset. She helped me to see that little and often is enough, that I am strong and capable, and I need to find my own path to fitness – not compare myself to others!” – Claire

“Diane helped me to realise what I love about being active… This has helped me to get out more often just for the fun of it, and not worry about what I’m going to “gain” from it – just enjoy being able to do it.” – Emma

My Level 1 online program lasts 8 weeks and is suitable for both beginners and those returning to exercise.

I also have a group program available starting on 11th January.

iBalance Yoga classes with Denny are based around Hatha yoga principles of postural movement and alignment with breathwork, bringing peace and stillness to the body and mind.

Encompassing a holistic approach to living with yoga and meditation Denny believes these are the most effective tools to establish a feeling of well-being and a grounded sense of self-knowledge. Making a weekly commitment to attend classes will allow you to enjoy the full benefits of yoga and observe the positive changes it can bring to your life.

Pre-Natal Yoga
This is the perfect time to take up an enriching practice as you enter a new chapter of your life. Enjoy a gentle and relaxing pre-natal class allowing you time to support and explore the changes in your body throughout pregnancy. Denny’s class focus is supportive with slow stretching movements and breathwork designed specifically for pregnancy.

Radiate your light and shine bright.

Our centre is a focal point for all things pregnancy and baby – we have the best pregnancy and post-natal classes in York (we have won the Little Vikings Best Pregnancy Class award for the last 3 years running), we also run birth preparation classes and hypnobirthing courses, and host baby massage, and the home birth support group. Sophie is an experienced birth doula and mindfulness teacher, and Alison is a Women’s yoga specialist and mentor. Fran (currently on maternity) is one of the most inspiring teachers you’ll ever meet.
We have taught pregnancy and post-natal yoga to thousands of women over the past 15 years. There are several reasons why we have such a great reputation: our classes feature evidence-based discussions helping you make informed decisions – we are big supporters of women’s choices around birth – and our post-natal classes lead to long lasting friendships (as well as tea and cake!).

Booking and pre-payment required for all classes. Possibility to swap days and make up missed classes.
