Wild Yoga

yoga and thought from Theo Wildcroft


I currently run two weekly yoga classes in my home base of North Wiltshire, plus a monthly rest and renew class. The weekly classes are run on a course basis, with a typical course length of 6 weeks. The courses take a break over the Easter, Summer and Christmas holidays but I usually offer a few classes over the summer depending on other commitments. I don’t target classes at particular experience levels, so anyone from beginners to advanced students can come along.

My yoga classes are in large villages with active communities and attract a mix of regular and drop-in students. The venues are village halls with free parking. I make my classes as accessible as possible to the widest range of people, whatever your abilities, experience and spiritual leanings. I make sure we have time to breathe, and rest, and laugh and check in with each other, and still feel like you’ve been looking after yourself in the best way you can.

We don’t lose the technical side of yoga, but try to move through it into a place of flowing grace where you listen to your body’s own wisdom rather than a list of instructions. I also share ways to have a home practice that doesn’t load you with guilt because you’re too tired for yet more sun salutations.

The class prices all work on the same principle – a drop-in session rate, a rate for a whole course based on a lower per session rate, and a concession rate available for course bookings to low or un-waged students. I base the viability of a course on advance bookings, so course fees are non-refundable.

Wednesday Morning

SONY DSCMy weekly daytime class is Wednesday at 10.30am at Rowde Village Hall, which is in the centre of the village just off the Chippenham to Devizes road.

At Rowde we have an enthusiastic and growing community of students. The village hall is small but perfectly formed, and also easy to find. This one is for all of you in and around Devizes, and those who find evenings difficult.

Drop in: £9 / Course: £7.50 per session / Concession: £6 per session

Lower Shaw Rest and Renew

1st Thursday evening of the month, 6.30 – 8pm (NB June 2019 is the second Thursday of the month)

This will be a deep dive into a session combining profound, restful yoga nidra; natural, nourishing breath work; and subtle, shamanic meditation.

Open to all, these sessions are a chance to experience practices far beyond the usual yoga class of move, rest, and breathe.

Drop in: £9 / £25 for 3 months booked in advance (ask for details)
