The Yoga Cloud is the brain-child of Helen Glen who splits her time between being a dance and drama teacher at Alderley Edge School for Girls and teaching yoga in Cheshire and Alderley Edge.
You only have to spend a short while with Helen and you'll find that you're feeling relaxed and at ease. Drawing on all her experience as a dancer, teacher, mum and wife Helen creates an environment that offers an oasis to look forward to every week whether you are a new or experienced yogi, a sports person, prospective mum, mum-to-be or part of the growing band of teens and young adults letting go of the stresses of exams through the Yoga Cloud (watch this space for more info on that and events in the area!).
Walk into one of the Yoga Cloud classes and you'll see rugby players and golfers, doctors and scientists mixing with those who are new to and those who have yoga in their lives for years.

We aim to share the teachings of yoga both on and off the mat with a range of classes there's one to suit your individual needs.
