Balance body and mind with this yoga style and get an all-round energising and calming workout at a beginners level.

Ashtanga Yoga is a dynamic and exciting form of Hatha yoga. It is an ancient Indian yoga system that, through a set of sequences and postures, allows the body to progressively open and strengthen. The sequence of postures is combined with a specific breathing technique and internal "locks", which are the key to a deeper practice and bring energy to the core of the body, so tightness in the outer muscles can release.

Listening to the mantra-like sound of their breath, the practitioner flows through the sequence in a form of moving mediation that is both energising and deeply calming.

Level 1: This class will give you an introduction to the specific sequence of postures and breathing technique of Ashtanga yoga as well as looking at correct alignment so gradually core building strength and flexibility.

  • 2. Are classes run as courses or drop in sessions?

    Both. Most our classes are paid on a drop-in basis, however advanced booking is strongly recommended for popular classes, as they often sell out quickly.  

    If you attend regularly, book 5 classes in one go and only pay for 4.  

    Level 1 Pilates and Aerial are run as courses, participants pay a one-off payment to join the course. 

  • 3. How do I register my child for classes?

    We run two types of classes, drop-in and pay termly.  

    The exception to this is Déda’s Youth Performance Companies Bounceback and Youth Dance and Circus Company (1 & 2), both of which entry is by an audition process. Please speak to a member of the Box Office team who will advise you on when the relevant auditions are and how to apply. 

    Déda requires an enrolment form to be completed for each child that attends a class. Forms can be picked up from the Box Office and returned on completion. If there are any changes in details, please inform us as soon as possible. 

  • 4. What shall I wear?

    None of our classes require you to purchase any specialist clothing - the main thing is to be comfortable and wear clothing which you can move in.  Commercial dance is high energy so does require trainers to be worn whilst Yoga and Pilates classes require bare feet. Contemporary is done in bare feet, whilst Ballet classes you can go with just socks or wear ballet shoes. 

    Please contact the Box Office for further information on individual class guidelines. 

  • 5. Do I need to bring any specialist equipment?

    No. We provide mats and blocks for Yoga and Pilates classes, but if you would prefer to bring your own please do! You may like to bring a prop along to a class such as Belly Dance – your tutors will advise you. 

  • 6. Do you have changing facilities?

    Yes. Upstairs we have full changing facilities with lockers and showers. Lockers require a token which can be purchased at front of house for 75p.

  • 7. Are classes suitable for people with additional needs?

    Yes - we want everyone to enjoy dance and all are welcome in our classes. We have a huge range of classes for children from 18 months upwards and people of all abilities. Déda is an accessible building and a copy of our Access Statement is available online giving more details about the building.
