Enjoy the Yoga Mind and Body Experience: An authentic yoga teaching school for beginners.
We’re a not-for-profit Social Enterprise. Our yoga teaching syllabus is for people who want to learn yoga, that’s for them.
We provide two yoga teaching services.
Our Yoga Club provides yoga classes in Camberley and Hook.
Our Yoga Hub teaches you yoga online.
More than just a Yoga
Join Yoga Mind and Body Hub to experience yoga online taught by the founder of your local yoga school, the experienced and charismatic, Johnston Lowry.
Since 2014, Johnston has built-up his business and yoga-teaching skills to provide you with a local professional yoga teaching school.
What makes the difference
Enjoy Johnston’s cheerful enthusiasm for yoga: backed-up by common-sense, intelligence and wit. Having practised yoga since 1998, he has a depth of knowledge and the skill to communicate the complexities of yoga straightforwardly.
As yoga grows ever more popular, this is precisely what people are looking for, which probably includes you.
Hello: I’m Johnston Lowry the founder of and the teacher at the Yoga Mind and Body Experience.
I want you to enjoy learning yoga because that way you’ll learn it better. I focus on your technique and giving you something that’s a little bit different. A more urbane approach to yoga, but always faithful to what true yoga is about.

My mission is to make yoga better and more accessible.
Yoga which is authentic and real. That my students can relate to, savour and use to make their lives healthier and happier.
Why: because during my many years of practising yoga I know it needs to change in many ways if it is to fulfil it potential you and many thousands of others who are put-off by some of the more unusual forms of yoga. And the biggest deceit is that when you begin to realise what yoga is you begin to see how phoney some of this stuff is.
With me, you will get something different.
A progressive, good-humoured and urbane approach, but without throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Making the baby grow healthier by introducing the best that modern science, psychology and physiology have to contribute to this beautiful craft.
I hope you’ll join us on what I often call the journey of your lifetime.
With all good wishes, Johnston

Three things to consider – before you decide!
Making money: that’s fine and necessary. Yoga Mind and Body Experience is a business and has to be run like one to survive. But at its heart, the Experience has to be true to yoga and the welfare of its clients. That’s the benchmark I set for myself, for the Experience, and my students!
So far: it’s not been a problem. One big bonus for me has been the lovely people I meet and the feedback we give each other. Hence why the two yoga teaching services I run are called the Yoga Mind and Body Hub: for learning online. And the Yoga Mind and Body Club: which is the public platform I run for teaching local yoga classes in Camberley and Hook.
The three questions both you and I need to answer
To help sort the wheat from the chaff here are three questions you might want to ask yourself, and me, before deciding where and with who you want to learn yoga. And is it right for you?
1) Is it authentic:
2) Who is it for:
3) How does it smell?
Is it an authentic yoga practice?
No doubt about it: what you learn from me is the genuine article. Technically it’s called Hatha Yoga: which is the traditional and classic form of yoga that consists of eight components.
The big three components
The big three, for most people, are the physical exercise; breathing practice; and meditation, (relaxation and mindfulness).
To learn more about Hatha Yoga please read my blog post…
Who is Yoga Mind and Body for?
It’s a play on words, but I believe that ‘every’ body and mind need yoga!
That just makes sense! Having a human body means you need to keep active. Otherwise, you’ll end up in a state of physical and mental atrophy.
Yoga helps you to look after your body in a very mindful way. It gets your heart, lungs, and muscles working hard. A regular yoga practice meets all the criteria which constitute being physically fit.

How well does it smell?
Hopefully, it smells pretty good! The truth is that we’re all individuals and there will be some yoga teachers who do, and others who don’t give you what’s you’re seeking. That’s fine and dandy. I don’t want to waste your time, or for you to be wasting mine!
One of my favourite mantras
I follow the mantra: “If you don’t tell it straight it’ll come out crooked”. What you see is what you get.
