Life can be busy. We are reachable all hours of the day, often trying to balance work and family life.
Do you ever wish you could set aside some time for you? Time which would make you feel stronger, more open in your body and ready to take on the day ahead.
So imagine, just for a moment, being still, the ground beneath you. No distractions from your phone, no urgent tasks to complete. Just a chance to feel stronger and more open in both body and mind.
Yoga can take you there. By guiding your focus to the present moment and the sensations of your body and breath, each posture becomes an opportunity to find peace and clarity.
Whether it’s the dynamic flow of Vinyasa or the deep release of Yin, take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and experience the transformative power of yoga for yourself.
Hello, I’m Gemma. I’m a British Wheel of Yoga teacher in Rugby, Warwickshire. I specialise in leading Vinyasa and Yin yoga classes, thoughtfully designed with busy individuals in mind.
I love sharing my passion for yoga and seeing students glow and feel in a positive place within themselves. My sequences are about feeling good, honouring your body, and exploring your yoga practice.
I like to blend ancient yogic wisdom with a modern twist to helpe you cultivate inner peace, balance, and strength. Expect themes, inspiring quotes, proverbs, captivating stories, and a touch of Sanskrit. Your yoga journey is unique, and my classes empower you to explore and evolve. Embrace the joy of self-discovery and self-care!
“Gemma is a fantastic teacher! The classes are brilliant, all focused on working towards a different concept of yoga. You can definitely enjoy and progress in Gemma’s classes whatever your level or previous experience. Gemma is so knowledgeable as a teacher and if you wish, she can adjust your body during the class to help progress. Well needed every week. It’s perfect for self care. Highly recommend!”
“I have just completed a block of classes with Gemma and I’ve loved them! I love how each set of 6 sessions has a particular focus – this one was on stiff neck and shoulders – perfect when bent over a laptop during the rest of the week! Gemma is very encouraging, supportive and goes at a great pace – giving a wide variety of options for adaptations according to experience/injury/flexibility. I’ve noticed progress in myself in just 6 weeks and definitely hope to do more in the future!”
“Gemma is an exceptionally kind, patient, experienced and knowledgeable yoga teacher. Her practice leaves me feeling, calm, refreshed, energised and supported. I feel exceptionally lucky to be able to share my yoga journey with her and I would thoroughly recommend her classes for novices through to experienced yogis alike.”
“Gemma’s yoga classes are wonderful. She’s a clearly experienced teacher that is very skilled and connected to her practice. She provides (if you choose) hands-on tweaks to your poses to make sure you get the most from your practice and shares poetry and wisdom that aids reflection.”
“I can highly recommend Gemma Murphy’s Yoga classes. She has a calming presence in her teaching method, encouraging you to really connect with your mind and body whilst pushing yourself to achieve new limits. It is a lovely group that Gemma tailors to suit all abilities. As a total beginner I didn’t feel ‘behind’ in any way as we were encouraged to take the class at our own pace. I would highly recommend this class.”
“Coming from a ten-year hiatus from yoga, I found Gemma to be the perfect teacher to ease me back into the practice. She’s clear and assertive with her instructions, creative and thoughtful in her lesson plans with guidance to helps students improve. I’ve enjoyed both Houlton classes and found myself learning a lot each week. It’s one of the things I most look forward to.”
“I wasn’t sure yoga was going to be my thing but I can honestly say Gemma’s classes are superb! I really look forward to my weekly flow. I always feel calm, free from distraction and rested. Gemma is patient, kind and an excellent teacher.”
“My partner and I have been attending Gemma’s Yoga sessions for the last few months. We were both beginners and absolutely love attending the classes together. Both of us struggle with back pain and the sessions have noticeably improved this, plus helping our flexibility and ability to switch off and relax (even just for an hour a week!) We would both highly recommend Gemma and look forward to continuing with her classes.”
