These sessions are for everybody: beginners, those wanting to take their meditation further, and those wanting a shared meditation experience. Each session will be a unique opportunity to more fully experience the present moment, reaffirm your sense of purpose in life, cultivate a sense of inner well-being, and proactively engage in difficult feelings, emotions and beliefs. Please register here where you will receive further details: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/weekly-irest-sessions-tickets-139625001137?aff=ebdsoporgprofile
Payment for classes between Monday 22nd February & Saturday 3rd April only:
Below are recommended class payment amounts. We understand however that for many people, the pandemic and restrictions have been financially disastrous. If you can pay what's suggested that's brilliant, but please feel free to pay as much or as little as works for you if that helps. We would hate a lack of funds to be a reason for not being able to come to regular yoga and meditation classes. And it goes without saying that a 25 minute meditation class is not the same price as a 90 minute yoga class. The suggestions below are just guidance. Thanks.
Drop-In = £8
6 Classes = £40
12 Classes = £60
20 Classes = £90
Please pay by bank transfer to:
Please also check the River Room website (www.theriverroom.org.uk) for information on other classes and workshops provided by teachers who would normally be in The River Room. Sometimes it's great to try something different!
Thank you so much and look forward to maybe seeing you on the mat!
Rebecca & Will XX
I was introduced to yoga as a teenager and have practiced on and off ever since. It wasn’t until my 40s, however, that I fell deeply in love with this ancient practice.
I love the physical strength, flexibility and release it gives me. Most of all though I love the way in which yoga, in its fullest sense, makes me feel more alive than I had ever hoped for. And part of this feeling of vitality has meant becoming ever more sensitive to the vastness of what it means to be human, including some of the bits I might rather avoid. Living with yoga means living with and embracing contradiction.
Wanting to deepen and share this practice, I decided to train as a yoga teacher and qualified with the British Wheel of Yoga in 2016. I teach a variety of classes, drawing on different styles of yoga and always aiming to be as inclusive of all types of bodies, range of experience as possible.
I’ve been attending Rebecca’s classes on the advice of my osteopath. I’m 65 and quite stiff with an occasional dodgy back and knees that have just about survived two instances of surgery when I was a child. I also seem to fall over a lot and have come off worse for wear when dealing with…Read More
Rebecca truly is the most wonderful yoga teacher. I always look forward to her classes…she takes such care in making each one different, I seem to learn something new each week. Rebecca often reads out a beautiful or thought provoking quote or chapter. I always leave wishing I could bottle the feeling I have the…Read More
As a relative newby to yoga I was a initially a little nervous, Rebecca managed to naturally create a relaxed environment, which eased this anxiety. The classes where themed in a way that supported the kind of grounding I required – after being diagnosed with PTSD, Ashtanga was recommended to me. Rebecca was intuitive to…Read More
I was an absolute beginner and a little nervous about yoga when I first went to Rebecca’s Gentle Yoga class on a Friday morning in the very beautiful River Room at Halton Mill. Two years on and I am very pleased I started. The class is mixed ability and can be as light or strong…Read More
My week and indeed my life have been lifted to a new place ever since I’ve been coming to your wonderful yoga classes. You have an extraordinary talent for conveying what I believe is the real essence of yoga. I have learnt so much through your teaching about automatic responses to life, and how through…Read More
I felt immediately welcomed and supported when I joined Rebecca’s Gentle Yoga class on Friday mornings at the River Room, Halton. Each week I learn more about the breath, the postures, the body … and myself. Rebecca’s style of teaching suits me and it is a joy to hear her quote a poem or a quotation…Read More
I find Rebecca an inspiring yoga teacher. Her commitment to it feels deep and heartfelt. I really appreciate and enjoy the calm and meditative atmosphere in her beautiful room, her attention to breathing and micro movements, and the generosity of what she offers of herself.Read More
Whenever I feel a bit meh and reluctant to go to yoga Rebecca hits the spot with a great mix of poses and relaxation, delivered with equanimity and good humour. Rebecca has the gift of managing to hold the class, so that everyone feels supported and valued; she inspires confidence while also being humble, and…Read More
I began attending Rebecca’s classes before the inception of the River Room- a welcoming and beautiful space. Rebecca’s teaching is grounded on her serious study of yoga and is always thoughtful and sensitive to the abilities of her students. Her inclusive classes provide challenges for those who seek them though everyone is catered for. There…Read More
Rebecca is a gifted yoga teacher, in every sense of what that might mean. Her gentle and nurturing approach guides and encourages us through our practice, even when she is being tough. She is also one of life’s ‘yoga’ scholars, and dotted throughout her classes I love how she shares new insights, understandings and reflective…Read More
