Yoga in the Park with Samantha
This class is suitable for complete beginners, injured warriors looking to return to the mat as well as yogis who prefer a slower paced practice.
We work with sun salutations, static poses and gentle movement, using modifications to ensure we are working compassionately with what’s happening for us today on the mat. Join Samantha for 75 minutes of hatha yoga in the beautiful Dedham Park. All levels welcome. Bring your own mat, cushion and blanket. Respect social distancing at all times.
If it rains, and government guidelines permit, we will take our class into our yoga studio on Manningtree Road.
Come and join me for an expansive hatha practice under the spring sky in the beautiful Dedham Park.
What to expect
Our Hatha yoga classes begin with a short meditation, an opportunity to step into the present moment and set an intention for your practice, before moving into sun salutations encouraging warming and opening throughout the body.
You will be gently guided through a series of postures, with stillness between each, encouraging curiosity to flower as we observe ourselves with compassion. At the end of practice we take a longer meditation relaxing into expanded awareness.
What to bring to class

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.
Toni MeddingsI absolutely love my Hatha yoga, Samantha is a really special teacher! I have no dislikes but I love the smell as you enter, I love the gentle studio, the music, the Olive tree as you enter! I’m learning so much…. I’m so pleased I found you!!
Cathy BrownI 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.

Sue WinsburyI enjoy my Hatha Yoga classes very much and find that each time I come I can do a little more. I find it very relaxing and Samantha explains and demonstrates moves very well.
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.
Amanda RoperThanks for a lovely class last night. I've not practiced Yin yoga before and felt really good afterwards.
Anonymous 15I enjoyed the yoga practice very much... it was a joy to connect with you, Samantha's knowledge is inspiring.
Brenda CoxI loved the class recording of Sam's class last week. It was easy to follow and the technical side of using it was easy too. I would recommend it to anyone missing your lovely classes.
Claire BaxterI always reap the benefits from Sam's classes both in a spiritual and a physical sense. I'm utilising the option of buying the classes that I would have usually attended or participated online live. This currently fits in with me as I have a full house and no real structure. Buying the classes allows me to fit yoga in where it's possible...and peaceful within my home! Allowing me to feel the full benefit of my yoga time and space without kids or partners stomping though my Savasna! Saying that I'm really looking forward to attending the studio again, as although I am benefiting from these choices in how and when I practice, I do miss the physical connection from Sam and my fellow yogees.
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.
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 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.
