Yoga Book Club
Come for a cuppa and good old chat with like minded souls about inspiring reads.
For some, yoga is just about the Asana (postures) which is all good, but for some there becomes a growing intrigue as to the content of their teachers class plan, intention and way of seeing the world.
Join Multiple different teachers each month who aim to share some of the reads that have been greatly inspiring to them on their journey that they would love to share with you.

What our students say
Janet OliverYou asked for feedback on my experience at Same Star Yoga, so here goes: The location - Really convenient! I'm delighted the studio is so close to my home. Design and interior 'decor' - A beautiful, calm and relaxing space. Perfect for practising Yoga. Teachers - All the classes I've attended have been expertly led. The teachers are very attentive to students' needs & requirements. Prices - Very reasonable. I like the idea of the multi-class passes, which are very handy for those of us who want to try out different sessions.
Pernilla VizardI just booked my first class with you, so looking forward to seeing your studio! I’ve been practising with Gaye Gorman since I moved here five years ago, but since lockdown it’s been all on line so cherishing the chance to go to a live yoga class again. Your website is beautiful and so many exciting classes on offer. I wish you every good fortune in this new venture.
Gaye GormanThank you so much for all your help yesterday to make it a successful day. Everyone was so appreciative that there is such a lovely space to practice their yoga.They all felt so comfortable and at ease and definitely connected to the vibe you have created in the building.
Rachel MannI can't recommend this studio and the teachers Faye and Samantha at Same Star yoga enough. I am now doing my Yoga Teacher Training with them which I feel shows how highly I regard their level of tuition.
Ollie & HollyJust a quick email to let you know that my experience with you both at Same Star Yoga has been extremely eye opening for me. I’ve always enjoyed yoga in the setting of my own home as didn’t think personally I would be able to relax and enjoy it as much but I was very wrong. On both occasions the venue was so chilled and inviting and the level of instruction and warmth from you both was absolutely critical to enjoying such a lovely experience. I shall definitely be coming again and thank you both very much. Couldn’t recommend it enough to enjoy on your own or like I did as a couple.
Gaye GormanThe plan of the day was well balanced with a lovely flow of beautiful themes and learning. The lunch was also delicious! The studio is welcoming, bright and airy in the day with a lovely contrast in the evening being warm and cosy! It was lovely to see all your creations and intentions come into fruition. A lovely experience in a beautiful setting with like minded souls. Thank you both 🙏🏼
Suzy ThirwallThank you for today. Loved it all and lunch was delicious !! The yoga / reflexology / Mandela art and tea were all amazing to experience in your lovely studio !
Amanda RoperThank you for the class on Saturday. I haven't been to yoga for so long and I really enjoyed it. You made it really interesting too - beyond the poses.
Sally ReevesWow what wonderful news! I really loved reading about your plans... what a true inspiration, I will certainly be coming along to visit your wellness centre it sounds amazing!!!! I’ve always loved your yoga, so very nurturing & informative.
Nicola CodlingAs always any and every experience with Same Star is wholesome, nurturing and leaves me with a sense of complete gratitude and love. Thank you for sharing such special gifts 💗💫💗
Anonymous 15I enjoyed the yoga practice very much... it was a joy to connect with you, Samantha's knowledge is inspiring.
Claire BaxterI just wanted to say thank you for the Water element Hatha yoga. As always, it was a super lesson and very reflective of my needs at the moment.
Tara PerlakiLoved everything about the retreat week – and the fact that this created and put together off the back of massive changes, was so impressive.It felt like the first time in the course, that I had got to know my fellow yogi’s on the course and that made it even more special.The whole experience was so positive!
Tara PerlakiI feel that Same Star did an amazing job of managing and navigating this year of YTT whilst experiencing the pandemic. There were so many changes that needed to be managed either last minute or with monumental shifts in the way the course was taught. Being faced with a global pandemic that overnight stopped us from being able to meet, gather and be taught in person was something none of us have encountered. But Same Star managed to create opportunities for us to continue online, bringing in brand new technology, as well as adapting group size and location changes (retreat), to ensure we could still continue with our training. I’m so happy that global events didn’t stop the course from going ahead and Samantha & Faye worked so hard to help that happen – thank you!
Jo MurphyI enjoyed the yoga practice very much, a friend had recommended Same Star and I have been following your wonderful advent calendar so wanted to come to a class. Unfortunately, timings, travel distance and cost mean that I won't be a regular attendee, but it was a joy to connect with you, Samantha's knowledge is inspiring.
Anonymous 9I love the space that you have created. It's brilliant to have access to the bolsters, blankets and blocks. The space always feels clean and inviting. Please keep the space minimalist. It's a nice haven away from the frantic outside world! All of the teachers create a really supportive environment where you feel confident to try new things or rest if your practise isn't quite at that level yet. I like to feel challenged physically and see progression week-to-week. I always enjoy the relaxation at the end of the class.
Anonymous 8I love that it is a safe, supportive environment with excellent teaching. The space is always set out beautifully and it feels very relaxing. I like the fact there are plenty of props available to use to help with poses. The classes are extremely well planned and it is clear that much thought goes into each session. I love that individual growth is encouraged and different abilities are supported.
Anonymous 7The space has a calm, lovely vibe and it's fantastic that it is dedicated to yoga. I really appreciate the invitations offered by Samantha to stretch my boundaries and my practice is developing.
Anonymous 5Its a very welcoming space, it's easily accessible and has a lovely feel. I feel held and safe to be myself in the space. I love the variety of classes and particularly value learning yoga as a 'whole'...the philosophy, pranayama, meditation, chanting etc, as well as the asana practice. I also value the commitment and kindness of the teachers. Just to say thank you for all being you. I love Same Star Yoga and will continue to support in any way I can.
Anonymous 3It is a sacred space for healing and learning, reflecting and to focus. Classes in good setting and atmosphere is achieved. Yogis have appreciation for all things that make us unique or how to correct postures, with what seems to be a naturally in-tune way of instructing us on a safe and individual level. Having trust that they know what they're really doing is a basis to build my confidence.
Anonymous 2I love the location and the feel. The teachers are so knowledgeable and they all have very different styles. I love the classes at Same Star and have recommended you to everyone I know.
Anonymous 1Thank you for all your hard work creating a wonderful local yoga community.
FelicityI just wanted to say thank you and well done on your wonderful online classes. It must be so hard to teach online but you do it brilliantly and you somehow manage to bring the studio into our homes! Thank you.
Kim PartridgeThis is the most wonderfully inclusive place to learn yoga, with two radiant souls that have amazing energy and true passion for their teaching. Everything Faye and Samantha do, is infused with authenticity and comes directly from their beautiful hearts. Through their offerings, they continue to encourage, inspire and empower me in the most sensitive and supportive way and I am so grateful for the opportunity to walk this yogic path with them as my guides. I would wholeheartedly recommend anyone wishing to start or continue their yoga journey, to do it here, at this little studio with a BIG heart.
Tara PerlakiBeautifully authentic and real. Faye and Sam teach and train with amazing knowledge and wisdom, whilst being beautifully authentic and real. Whether doing yoga classes or yoga teacher training, you can trust your in exceptionally safe hands.
Nicola CodlingThe journey through the country lanes whatever time of day starts to ignite the magic that is fuelled upon arrival at the studio. Whatever the class, whomever the teacher, three words to describe Same Star Yoga are heart, soul and oneness. Open your heart, speak to your soul and become one with all you are through the Yoga classes and workshops offered by Faye and Sam at Same Star Yoga.
Alison GoddardI can't recommend this studio and the teachers Faye and Samantha at Same Star yoga enough. I am now doing my Yoga Teacher Training with them which I feel shows how highly I regard their level of tuition.
Tansy Dowman-WilksSame Star is such a gorgeous space for yoga and wellbeing and I love the feeling of community that is so strong there. I've attended lots of workshops and classes and they are always fantastic. Even the journey there feels like an act of escape! Highly recommend checking out all they have to offer.
Gabrielle ZeterThe studio is overflowing with warmth and love which completely reflects Samantha and Faye’s approach to all of their class and workshop offerings - of which there are many. Simply beautiful.
Gina GardinerThoroughly professional but incredibly caring! I can thoroughly recommend Same Star Yoga and meditation!!! Give yourself a great gift of self care and sign up.
