Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. The main components of yoga are postures (a series of movements designed to increase strength and flexibility) and breathing. You do not have to be supple or fit to practise yoga and the benefits to mind and body are well documented. Yoga classes are designed to suit all abilities and levels with emphasis on helping each person develop, explore and feel comfortable moving their own body.
There are many different styles of yoga, please click on each class on the timetable section for its individual description.

Gentle movement combined with hands on integral adjustment and fascial release; these sessions are focused on developing core strength and re-establishing efficient use of the body. Exploratory movement can help identify habitual patterns and areas of tension within the body and the application of yoga postures offer the opportunity to relax and release, helping restore you to your natural, pain free state. This approach is perfect for working with injury rehabilitation, postural and alignment issues, relief from back and joint pain, improving range of movement, strength and flexibility, relief from general tension and aches and pains and as an aid to stress reduction, anxiety and depression.

Relax, rejuvenate and re-energise your body and mind as you gently stretch your muscles with the support of blocks and bolsters for up to 5 minutes each pose. Within this time we have the luxury of discovering internal sensations through meditation while balancing our energy within (along meridian lines). This can create a more harmonious and healthy mind, body and soul which we can apply to our everyday lives.
A really beautiful practice which is fully accessible to people of all ages and abilities.
