Sunshine and Light Yoga provides adult yoga classes, kids yoga classes, teen yoga classes and family yoga classes in Houghton on the Hill Leicester and Oadby, Leicester.
All yoga classes are led by Claudine and Joanna who are both qualified and fully insured to teach adults, kids & teens yoga, meditation & mindfulness. We completed our training with Sunpower Yoga (Yoga Alliance 200hrs certified), Young Yogi Academy (accredited by IYN), Teen Yoga (accredited by IYN) and Yoga for ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) & ADHD with Special Yoga (accredited by IYN) and Yoga in Health Care. We hold full DBSs and a first aid certificate.
Claudine was advised to begin practicing yoga many years ago to help relieve mental health problems and immediately found it to be hugely beneficial in managing her symptoms. She quickly realised it was a powerful tool to relax and calm the body and mind, building a yoga practice into her daily life. Also suffering regularly from Sciatic pain, she found her yoga practice not only relieved her symptoms, but eventually made sciatic problems a thing of the past. Claudine has now been practicing yoga & meditation for over 20 years and has a wealth of experience to offer, particularly in mental health, due to her own experience in this area. She is passionate about sharing the benefits of yoga to as many people as possible, both adults and children alike through her teaching, as it has helped her so much over the years.

Sunshine and light yoga classes involve relaxation and breathing exercises, together with yoga postures to promote a relaxed, healthy mind and body. The postures (asanas) aim to stretch out the body, improve strength and flexibility, as well as general fitness and health. The guided relaxation and mindfulness calms the body and mind.
Yoga is suitable for all ages and levels of fitness, including those who may have an injury or illness. Please contact us in order to book in prior to attending a yoga class, so we can discuss any specific needs with you. We offer adaptations for those who may require it.
