Welcome to the NEW Bodies & Sunshine Yoga, Ilkley, plus Bodies Fitness.

I hope you are all well and managing life in our present extraordinary situation.

Like most businesses I have been hit hard by the Corona Virus, no more classes, no more personal visits, no more yoga!!  I had to adapt quickly or lose my clients and business, so I did.

Sunshine Yoga was born as a ‘by invitation’ group using live video sessions on Facebook and ‘One 2 One’ sessions moved onto live Zoom.  OK we had some technology and internet connection issues but, when they were solved, we found ourselves enjoying the new look.

  With the easing of lockdown I started some group outdoor sessions and these are now a regular feature at the Ilkley Lido, well at least in the dry weather.  With the latest rules for outdoor exercise classes there are now no limits on numbers for these classes so everyone is welcome to Spaced out Yoga!!

Bodies fitness classes also moved on to live video, including weights sessions.  Amazing what you can do when you need to!

What are the NEW Yoga classes?


Restarting from scratch made me reconsider how to present my sessions so that I could maintain freshness and vitality whilst giving my clients the type of Yoga they were looking for.  So, the two sessions a week Sunshine Yoga format was born.  It is still Dru Yoga but with my signature on it!  The sessions alternate between ‘Strength and Tone’ and ‘Spinal Flow’ and these both incorporate the type of movements that ‘everyone’ can get to grips with. Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5pm.


The outdoor group classes are, as mentioned above, currently at the Ilkley Lido grounds at 5.30pm on a Monday.


Yoga One 2 One and Fitness sessions have largely retained their original format and with the latest social distancing rules I can now give you more choices. For one to one (or two) the sessions could be in my studio, at your home or on Zoom or FaceTime. With 'at home' sessions we follow al of the rules so that we all stay protected. Whichever you choose these sessions are organised at times to suit you.

The future?

Right now I intend to carry on with these new formats and where I can I will expand them to both give more of my clients opportunity to join in as well as bringing in new clients.  All new clients will have to take part in at least one One 2 One session before they can join a group class so that we can properly deal with all health and safety matters. I can also help with advice on many of the technology issues you might face.


I am now working on setting up indoor classes again for the Winter period and as soon as I can be assured of the rules and availability of venues I will publish a program for group clesses indoors.


The payment policy for the group online and outdoor classes is that you decide what value you place on the class (bearing in mind last charged prices were £11 per session) and transfer that amount direct to my account after the class.


I feel reinvigorated by these changes and hope that you can join me to enjoy some of the same.
