These are 1.5 hour long practices of self-exploration towards physical, mental, and spiritual wellbeing. We practice a slow and gentle and sometimes challenging sequence of traditional yoga postures and transitions, breathing exercises, and seated guided meditation.
The aim is to awaken the body’s ability to build strength, flexibility and resilience, and to access each participant’s potential for restful dwelling in the presence.
This is a gentle, playful class, suitable for all levels of experience.
This is an online course
8 week course on Wednesday Evenings
Date: 3rd March – 28th April ( No class on St Patrick’s day 17th March )
