Fantastic yoga session with Vince Starr this morning. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to try yoga in a safe and supportive environment or who wants to improve their practice. We’re very lucky to have Vince in Selsey – make the most of him!

Vince’s “open air” fun yoga and wellbeing classes by the beach. “Yoga always blisses me out but yoga under a blue sky, by the sea with a warm wind, the sound of the waves and swift’s flying overhead – sublime. It can’t get better than that.

“I just wanted to drop a line to say thank you so much for your lovely note and gorgeous smelling massage oil. It was very kind of you. I really enjoyed our time together in the Ockenden Manor classes, you’re such an amazing yoga guide and a cool, chilled out person who is so easy to get along with. I was lucky to have you there.”

“Vince is a great teacher. His classes are just the right blend of stretch, strength, stamina, flow and calming meditative reflection. He’s a very warm and generous person and this is evident in his teaching – he has an energetic and uplifting presence which really connects with his students. I always leave his classes feeling renewed and inspired.”

I like to practice Vince’s classes as I find the energy created through rhythmic flow and contemplative rest is a powerful remedy to balance my forthcoming week in the office. As a result of sound, movement and suggested thought I feel empowered and revitalised, his awareness and engagement with the class allows for moments of feeling spiritually and physically connected to the energy in the room, outside of it and within myself.

I’ve been lucky enough to have Vince teach on several of my yoga retreats and I’m always amazed at his depth of knowledge, incredible sequencing and friendly personality that puts everyone at ease. Vince has a passion for learning and sharing his knowledge. It’s always a pleasure to work with Vince and I can’t wait till next time. Highly recommended!

As a novice I was looking for an instructor that knew their stuff, was in touch with the spiritual side but wasn’t pushy with it and not disappearing up their own back end. Vince ticks all those boxes and the class is perfect for all levels and is very welcoming.
