'What style of yoga is it that you do?'
The Vernyoga recipe for health and well-being brings together all of the styles of yoga, meditation, fitness and bodywork that Vernette has trained in, from classical to contemporary teachings for a flowing style with a strong, anatomical focus with the newest of bodywork knowledge, so that students can get more results in less time from every class that they take, working from deep inside the body with solid foundations and core activation rather than externally placed postures on the body. It's creative, informative, fun and accessible to everyone.
Although all classes are open, all abilities, a reasonable level of fitness or mobility is required for some of the classes as they are fairly active, flowing hatha / vinyasa yoga, including slow to medium paced flowing movements as well as some holding postures for strength, rather than meditative or gentle stretching - if looking for something gentler, more meditative, or slower, maybe the Wednesday Pick n Mix Sessions, Thursday 10.30am and 5.30pm classes, Chair Yoga or the Saturday 12.30pm class may be better options for you. If looking more for a philosophical / spiritual aspect - I would recommend Wednesday Pick n Mix - Kundalini or Kirtan Sound Meditation classes. All classes including the Tuesday circuit class are for people in good health, (even if you consider yourself unfit), so if you have injuries or any health issues that you think I may need to know prior to session, please contact me and if concerned, please consult you GP before undertaking any exercise programme as these may not be suitable.
Thursday evenings 7.30pm class in Lyne is where most beginners start if looking for an evening flow class, but please do be aware that it still has flowing sequences such as sun salutes, but you can just build them up in your own time as the body opens up. Wednesday evening Pick N Mix Class is mostly floor based, (except for the 3rd week when we sometimes work on the fundamentals of yoga and fine tune alignment of poses) and suitable for rehab and flexibility. This class offers something different each week like workshops.
A fitness form (here) is required before booking into a class, so that the instructor can advise on which class would be most appropriate.

Arrive 5-10 minutes early
Entering classes late is disturbing to others. If you do arrive a few minutes late, please make sure that you enter as slowly and quietly as you can. Most venues, the doors will be locked at class start time. No admission after 5 minutes late.
Practice on an empty stomach
It is recommended that you do not eat a heavy meal at least three hours before practice. A light meal is okay 1-2 hours beforehand.
If a special condition prevents this, eat easily digested foods, i.e. fruit or yogurt, one hour before class.
Please help preserve the peace and be sure to turn off your mobile phone before entering the class and NO vibrate is not is not silent, please do not have your phone on vibrate!!
6 / 12 sessions payments can be paid by cash / cheque (payable to Vernette Butler) when you come to the class or paid online via paypal. Valid at all classes. If new, please DONT buy before you have contacted Vernette as the fitness form needs to be filled in first
The class pass is kept open for 2 MONTHS after last attendance, after then, it will be void.
I still require you to put your name down each week for class attendance even if on a class pass. They are non consecutive so I'll carry it over, (say if on holiday), you wont loose those classes BUT if you have booked in for a class and haven't let me know that you cant make it at least 1.5 hours prior to class that you wont be coming, then I will deduct that class from your pass as it means someone else could've had your space. They are non refundable once purchased as this is your commitment to attend, if unsure whether you can make a commitment for 6 or 12 sessions, then you are best paying as you go.
