• Regain focus and clarity in life regardless of what is going around you.
• Stress is released through the practice which includes movement, relaxation and meditation, to give you a sense of support from within, flexibility, stamina and trust.
• Classes are suitable for all levels including complete beginners because you work within your own capacity.
• These classes draw on all aspects of traditional yoga to strengthen not only the body but to build psychological and emotional stability.
• Classes are light hearted and fun!
• The benefits of taking just a small amount of time out from your usual daily routine is immeasurable.

£3 per session. First come first served, all abilities welcomed with mats provided (or bring your own).
