Welcome to Barley Yoga & Dance
Barley Green is a Yoga and Dance teacher offering classes and private tuition in Norwich and Norfolk.
Due to the on-going pandemic situation most classes and events are currently online using Zoom. Please browse the available classes here in the website and follow the links to book. If you have not already done so, you will need to register with my secure on-line booking system Momoyoga. Your first on-line class is free and for further classes I ask for a donation of £6 to £10 at your discretion. Alternatively, sign up for membership giving you access to all my classes for just £50 per month. If you are currently unwaged due to the crisis, please do not go without your yoga, just drop me an email or Facebook message and I will arrange some class credits for you.
I look forward to sharing some Yoga with you, keep safe and well. Om shanti, Barley.

Barley's friendly, accessible classes will set you up for your day and help manage daily stresses with handy tools such as breathwork tips and meditation. Classes aim to build strength, flexibility and technique, modifications are offered to help those that need it and space is given to the more experienced who want to develop their practice.
Barley’s classes benefit those currently leading a sedentary life who want to find a gentle and balanced way to a more energetic vitality, but equally, for the more athletic types, classes can target appropriate muscle groups, focus the mind and improve overall body awareness leading to fitness and performance benefits.

Originally from Newark, Barley is from a long line of artists, dancers and performers. She studied dance at Chichester University achieving an MA in Dance and Related Arts, and went on to many performance art projects including as a freelance Choreographer for various companies in the South of England and touring her own Contemporary Performance Company based in Brighton. Later Barley taught GCSE and A-level Dance and established a Youth performance art company “Clout Youth Dance” which inspired many teenagers and young adults to sample the joys of dance, drama and performance.
Weekly Yoga Classes
Weekly Yoga Classes take place at various locations in Norwich and surrounding villages from “seize the day” early morning sessions, to lunch time and after-work squeeze-ins and nourishing evening classes. All classes are adapted to suit the time of day and the time available. Go to classes for more info.
Improved flexibility is one of the first and most obvious benefits of yoga. During your first class, you probably won't be able to touch your toes, never mind do a backbend. But if you stick with it, you'll notice a gradual loosening, and eventually, seemingly impossible poses will become possible.
Barley provides bespoke workplace classes to offices and schools to improve employee health and wellbeing and team cohesion. Talk to Barley on 07834485783 about your requirements.
Strong muscles do more than look good. They also protect us from conditions like arthritis and back pain, and help prevent falls in elderly people. And when you build strength through yoga, you balance it with flexibility. If you just went to the gym and lifted weights, you might build strength at the expense of flexibility.
Barley can provide tailored classes for individuals, couples or families either at the home or a convenient studio to fit in to your schedule.
