Yoga Classes in Wembley
A flowing sequence of asana (postures) synchronising movement with breath. This class will build strength, and flexibility as well as provide opportunity to explore different pranayama (breathing techniques). Teachers will provide different options to challenge the more experienced yogi whilst nurturing and guiding those newer to the mat. The most popular of our yoga classes, it is recommended that you have some yoga experience before attending vinyasa as it is a challenging and dynamic class however beginners will be welcomed.
Wether you are new to yoga or have had some experience, flow align is a great way to participate in safe movement, seeking to maintain strength, stability and flexibility. Yoga is great for reducing stiffness of the body and increasing energy levels. In these classes the teacher will guide students through an all level practice, poses can be modified and props such as blocks and bolsters are used depending on the individuals ability or restrictions. This class is suitable for all.
Yin yoga targets the deeper, denser tissues of the body such as ligaments, tendons, bones and joints. Postures are held for longer periods of time, generally 3 to 5 minuets, allowing the fascia, or connective tissue networks of the body to release. A wonderful compliment to a more dynamic or ‘yang’ practice but most of all a Yin class feels amazing for both your body and your soul.
Flow into Yin
Flow into Yin is an all level class at Nest Yoga Wembley. Students will be lead through a half hour vinyasa flow where movement is linked with breath, working on developing strength and balance and then for the benefit of the body’s soft tissue networks students will settle into longer help yin poses for the remainder of the class. This class offers a little bit of everything and will leave you feeling refreshed and restored.

Mums and Bubs
Mums (or dads), this one if for you. Just because you are looking after a baby doesn’t mean you don’t want to do something for yourself. Come and do some yoga while your baby plays near by in the studio. Maybe your baby lies on a mat next to you, maybe they crawl or wonder around the safe studio space, exploring the space and toys provided. Your baby needs a feed or change, or just some attention? not a problem, hop off your mat when you need to. This is a very casual class where anything goes and the teacher will help as needed!
