About Yoga at Sunshine
Yoga at Sunshine offers weekly vinyasa flow yoga classes at Sunshine International Arts, Loughborough Junction, South East London. Established in March 2014 on the foundation that yoga in the city should be accessible and sustainable for all, Yoga at Sunshine offers weekly vinyasa flow yoga classes at Sunshine International Arts – a community and carnival arts charity supported by Arts Council England. This wonderful creative space enables us to keep yoga classes affordable whilst supporting local arts, and nurturing the gathering and growth of a community spirit in Loughborough Junction.
Yoga at Sunshine classes are all open level vinyasa flow and suitable for beginners. Classes incorporate traditional teachings of yoga; pranayama (breathing techniques), asana (physical postures), and meditation. On a physical level, strength, suppleness and balance of body are created as physical tensions are eased. On a subtle level, space and stillness is created within, easing emotional stress and calming overactive minds.
In addition to nourishing body and mind, by coming to yoga classes at Yoga at Sunshine, a percentage of your payment goes towards supporting this carnival and community arts charity. In 2018 through everyone’s attendance at yoga classes with Claire, Ali and Nicola have contributed £3,240 to Sunshine International Arts – enabling a community and carnival arts charity to reach more people, to create with the community, and to thrive in a time when the arts are so needed but so in threat.

INDIVIDUAL CLASS INFO:
TUESDAYS, 7:15 – 8:30PM with Lana @lanagsmith – expect an honest, grounding and slow letting go of the day, that draws on Lana’s 20 years of experience in Sivananda, Ashtanga, Vinyasa and Bhakti Yoga. This is a soothing practice –strong in places and gentle in others – allowing you to release your day with gratitude and reconnect to “self” in preparation to a fresh start to a new day.
“My aim is to allow the practitioner to practice in a safe space; a space that allows them to go on their own, personal yoga journey with confidence whilst getting to know and understand their individual body and self.”
THURSDAYS, 7:15 – 8:30PM with Claire @claire__zee : inspired by the cyclical nature of the moon and seasons, and informed by Claire’s training and experience in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yoga Therapy and Yoga Anatomy, expect a nourishing evening with sequences that enable an exploration of the space both in and around yoga postures. The class sequences change each week in relation to lunar and seasonal cycles – providing opportunities to develop strength in some weeks and to rest and replenish in others.
“These classes provide the opportunity to accept the fluctuations of the mind, discover the humble potential of the body, and explore what happens when both are connected through the simplicity of breath.”
SUNDAY, 10:00 – 11:15AM with Beckie @hilo.yoga : a wonderful way to awaken the body on a sleepy Sunday morning – Beckie’s Vinyasa flow classes offer an opportunity to develop strength in your practice, warm the body and calm the mind through movement.
“I feel really strongly that yoga has something for everyone and I want to create an accessible, non-dogmatic and open minded space for whenever you need it.”
