About the Classes

We are all becoming increasingly aware of the importance of keeping the mind and body healthy and active to prevent illness and promote wellbeing. Designed for all levels of health, starting off at a slow pace working within your own comfort level.

*Please note these courses are aimed at teaching people how to get in touch with their body and understand how the body works for good health, rather than a general “keep fit class”. Yoga classes are not substitutes for specialist support, psychotherapy, support group, clinical or medical services.

What to wear? It is best to wear loose fitting trousers and a top, something that has some stretch in it so you are able to move comfortably. Socks to keep your feet warm.

As well as your yoga mat, you may also find it useful to have a blanket, cushion and a yoga block, if you are at home then a chunky hardback book will do!
