Newsletter & Class Information

May 17

Hi Everyone,


The nights are lighter and the days feel a bit warmer, summer must be on its way and that can only mean beach yoga is back on a more regular basis.  I love to practice outside in the summer months even if it’s in the small sunny spot in my back yard, if you haven’t tried beach yoga yet why not give it a go this year.

April has been a busy month and it finished with our wonderful retreat on Lindisfarne,  it was a a lovely weekend and I am busy planning another for later in the year.

Here is the latest newsletter with all the information on upcoming classes, yoga breakfast, filming of beach yoga and a new recipe corner by popular request!


Classes Schedule for May & June

There will be a couple of class cancellations at the end of May as I will be away.

There are no classes on the following dates and venues

Monday 29th May                 6-7.15pm                                 Cullercoats Community Centre

8-9pm                                       Pinetree Health & Fitness

Tuesday 30th May                  9.15-10.25am                         Old Lowlight

Wednesday 31st May            6.15-7.25pm                           Old Lowlight

The Friday sunrise class will finish on 26th May and there will be no sunrise class throughout June unless posted on social media.

All classes will be back up and running throughout June I may be away for a couple of classes but I am arranging some great cover for you.

Yoga Breakfast

We had a visit from Helen Redfern who writes a blog for Yogamatters at the last breakfast.  She really enjoyed the class and breakfast and if you would like to check out what she had  to say about us go to http://www.yogamatters.com/blog/join-yoga-breakfast-liz-watson/   If you haven’t had a chance to try one yet or booked your place for this Saturday 6th May there are still a couple of spots left so let me know, can you also please confirm your place if you have put your name down for it but not yet paid.  There will not be a breakfast in June but it will be back in July.

End of week Chillout Class

Everyone really enjoyed the ‘Chillout Class’ in March and I am trying to make it a regular occurrence.  However because of Easter and our retreat we weren’t able to fit one in during April and I am afraid I am going to have to cancel the planned one on 19th May, however I am hoping to change it to Thursday 25th May and will confirm this date shortly.

Beach Yoga is back!

Yes we will be trying to get down to King Eddies on a regular basis at the weekends from now on and Louise is going to help and will aim to head down to lead the class on weekends I am away.  Remember these weekend 45 minute lead practices are free, everyone is welcome but ideally it is best if people have a basic knowledge of the Primary Practice as we only call out a few prompts for the sequence.

STOP PRESS   Apparently the fact that we practice yoga on the beach is cool!  I have been contacted by someone doing a promotional video of all good things happening down at the coast to film some of our practice.   We have provisionally arranged to go down to King Eddies on Saturday 13th May around our usual time of 8.30am so if you can join us then and we can get a big group of us that would be fantastic.  I will confirm nearer the date when we know the weather and time.

Retreat on Lindisfarne

As mentioned our first UK retreat on the magical Island of Lindisfarne last weekend was amazing, the place is beautiful, the weather was kind to us, we had a fantastic group of yogis and everyone had a lovely time.   I was pretty tired by the end of it but all the effort was well worth while thank you everyone who came along.  I have decided to run another in the autumn and the dates are provisionally 27th to 30th October.  Full details will be coming out shortly.

March 2017

Hi Everyone,

March is over and Easter is fast approaching. Unfortunately because of weather and having a few things on myself at weekends we haven’t managed to get on the beach but hopefully now the days are warming a bit we will be back down there at weekends soon so keep an eye out on Social Media for updates.

Kids Yoga

To celebrate International Kids Yoga Day in April we are holding two Kids Yoga Events at Old Lowlight in the Easter holidays:

Monday 10th April 10am—11 am                 Adult & Child Yoga (up to 7 years)

This is our usual themed class for the younger yogi’s and their parent/carer  £5 for Adult & Child, extra children £2

Tuesday 11th April 10am—3pm                  ‘Discover in a Day Arts Award’ for children 6-11years

Louise and I will be teaming up with Pearl the Heritage Manager at Old Lowlight for a day of yoga and art activities, drinks  and biscuits will be provided but children should bring their own packed lunch.  The cost for the full day is £20 and the kids will earn an Arts Award for attending the day.

For more information please contact me.

Easter Class Break

There will be no adult morning class at Old Lowlight on 11th  April, in addition there will be no classes from Friday 14th April until Tuesday 18th April inclusive.  Classes will start back on 19th  April at Old Lowlight 6.15pm.   If  we get some nice weather over Easter I may try a beach session Easter Saturday, check out Social media nearer the time.

Monthly Specials

There are still a couple of spaces for the yoga breakfast tomorrow if anyone would like to come along please let me know, the next one is Saturday May 6th and people are booking now so please put your name down if you would like a space.

The feedback for the first Friday Chillout session was great, thank you I’m so glad you all enjoyed it.  Unfortunately I don’t think I will be able to fit a Chillout session in during April because of the Easter break and the retreat weekend in Lindisfarne starting on the 21st and I also need to change the date of the May Chillout as I can no longer do the 19th.  I am just trying to tie some dates in with Pearl and will update you shortly with a new date.

I hope to see you in class over the next couple of weeks but if not have a very Happy Easter and don’t eat too much chocolate!

January 2017

Hi Everyone,

Happy New Year!  I hope that 2017 is a great year for you, full of peace, happiness and Yoga!

Most classes start back next week from 9th January, full schedule below.  We will be working lots of Sun Salutations and core to get rid of that festive sluggishness in January, but don’t forget that also this month the classes are aimed at focusing on postures that you would like me to go over so please let me have some suggestions (Don’t worry if you don’t know the name just a general description should be enough!).

Yoga Breakfast

The first Yoga Breakfast of the year is booked in for Saturday 21st January at Old Lowlight, 9am start.  The price remains just £15 for yoga and breakfast, please book your place early to avoid disappointment.

Classes Schedule for January

Don’t forget the new 6.45am start time on Friday mornings at Old  Lowlight. The class will be a little longer so it will go on until 7.55am for those who would like to stay but we will aim to finish the main practice by 7.45am for those who need to leave for work.

Hi Everyone,

The festive season is fast approaching again, we will be focusing on the breath and a few balances in our practice to keep us calm and grounded through the next few weeks.

The full weekly class schedule will run until the 9th December and the schedule after that is below with the last class being Monday 19th December:

Monday 12th December                       Cullercoats Community Centre                6.00-7.15pm

Tuesday 13th December                       Old Lowlight                                                9.15-10.25am                                                                          Pinetree Health & Fitness                        11.30am-12.45pm

Yoga on the beach in December!

Unfortunately I didn’t manage to put a session on during November but I am hoping to do some in December so look out for posts on social media, these may be weekdays or weekends over the festive period.

Monday Night Curry

After the last class on Monday 19th December we are planning to go for a curry in Tynemouth, everyone is welcome but please can you email Paula if you would like to come along and she will book the table, plmarshall13@yahoo.com

Yoga Breakfast and Evening Mysore

The December Yoga Breakfast on the 11th has one space left if anyone would like it. If you have booked on please can you make your payment to confirm your place if you haven’t already done so.

Yoga Breakfasts and Evening Mysore will continue as monthly specials in the New Year and we will kick off with a Yoga Breakfast on January 21st at Old Lowlight, book your space now to kick your New Year yoga practice off in the best way.  I don’t have a date confirmed for the first evening Mysore of 2017 yet, but will confirm this as soon as possible.

New Year classes & dates

A full class schedule will restart the week beginning 9th January with the exception of the Friday morning class at Old Lowlight which will start back the following week 20th January.

The Wednesday evening class at Old Lowlight will continue to run as a class more suitable for beginners and there will be another 4 week beginners/refresher course starting in February.

New start time on Friday mornings at Old Lowlight

The 7am start time has been more popular than the 6.30am start but I know some people find it a bit of a rush finishing at 8am and getting to work.  I think that a 6.45am start would be the best of both worlds. The class will be a little longer so it will go on until 7.55am for those who would like to stay but we will aim to finish the main practice by 7.45am for those who need to leave for work.

Full weekly class schedule at the Coast 2017

Tuesday              9.15-10.25am    Old Lowlight

Friday                  6.45-7.55am      Old Lowlight

Class Prices

Introduce someone you know to yoga in the New Year

You can bring along a friend for free to one class at Cullercoats or Old Lowlight throughout January and February only and there will be a special beginners 4 week pass available for £20.  Anyone introducing a friend will get an extra class added to their next class pass.

Finally I would like to wish you and your families all a happy, peaceful Christmas and New Year. I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year for an exciting year of yoga classes, breakfasts and retreats, thank you for all your support during 2016.

Hi Everyone,partneryoga

Firstly thank you to everyone who came along to our Weekend of Yoga, I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!  It’s also been amazing to see the progress in so many students practice over the weekend and in classes this week.


I have a few dates coming up for your diary between now and December, I also try to keep these updated here on the website home page.

Family Yoga

Family Yoga is back next week in half term on 25th October at 10am at Old Lowlight.  It is ideally suited for children aged 4 – 8 but you are welcome to bring younger or older children if you think they will enjoy it. The cost will be £5 for one adult and child, additional family members £2. Any 3’s and under who come along with you are free of charge.

Old Lowlight are also holding their Big Draw festival that day for the kids to get involved in so why not stay the whole morning!  http://oldlowlight.co.uk/big-draw-promises-to-be-steam-powered/

Yoga Breakfasts

The next yoga breakfast is coming up very soon on Saturday 29th October at 9am, there are still spaces so please let me know if you would like to come along.  There are no breakfasts in November so after this the next one will be another Sunday Breakfast on 11th December, people are already booking this date in so please put your name down early for this one.

Friday Mysore

The students who have ‘braved’ the self-practice style Mysore classes have really enjoyed them so why not give it a try soon.  For the last couple of sessions Louise has been able to come along and is happy to lead a small group through a half primary series if you would like to follow someone.  I cannot guarantee she can make every session but I will let you know during the week before if she will be there.   There are two more booked before Christmas, 18th November and 16th December, from 5.30pm but remember you can start your practice later than that if it suits you.

Weekly Classes

All weekly classes will be running through half term with the exception of the  9.25am Tuesday morning class at Old Lowlight, it is back on the following Tuesday 1st November.  Don’t forget the Friday early class has been moved a little later and now starts at 7am rather than 6.30am.

It’s been lovely to see so many of you at classes and workshops over the past few weeks, thank you for your continuing support.
