Natasha Harding, The Village Yoga


YOGA has many health benefits and is as good for the body as it is the mind. It comes from the word ‘union’ and has been practiced for thousands of years originating in India. There are many forms of yoga with ‘Hatha Yoga’ being the most well-known in the Western World.

Village Yoga was founded by me, Natasha Harding in 2006 after I qualified with the Yoga Alliance. Since humble beginnings I now teach at least 30 people a week.

I’m pasionate about yoga and the many benefits that a regular practice can have upon the individual. If you’ve often toyed with the idea of having a go but are not sure it’s for you then try a class and see if you like it.

My classes are held in RYARSH VILLAGE HALL and operate on a pay-as-you-attend basis.

All abilities are welcome.

Tuesday @ 11.30 am – Hatha Yoga

Wednesday @ 9.15 am – Hatha Yoga

Thursday @ 7.30 – Pregnancy Yoga

Thursday @ 8.15 pm – Hatha Yoga

Friday @ 10.00 am – Hatha Yoga

In addition, I also teach on a one-to-one basis at my home studio in Birling. Drop me a note if you’d like more information about these sessions.

My aim has always been to bring yoga to the masses. I love it when my students tell me that they get their best night sleep after one of my classes, or that that knee injury they’ve had for years is suddenly better. Everybody should do yoga!

In addition to teaching yoga, I am a freelance journalist, have written two books, From Bump to Baby and YogaMamma – and created some children’s yoga apps.

If you’d like further details then please get in touch.

Hope to see you in the future.
