Yoga has always been more than just exercise. It’s said that yoga movements were used to exhaust the body to prepare the mind for meditation. Equally, yoga can be used as a physical exercise alone. However, many benefit particularly mentally from incorporating the other principles of this ancient tradition to help you find your daily calm, strength and joy on and off the mat.
Join me and my support labrador at 1.30 pm for an hour’s gentle flow to stretch your mind and body and ultimately leave feeling motivated for the week ahead!
Each class is £5pp and includes yoga mats, blocks and blankets but you are welcome to bring your own.
Are you completely new to yoga and would like to come to class but feel as though you need to learn the basics? Perhaps you feel too self-conscious to practice in front of others?

If you’d like to sleep better, soothe anxiety, increase concentration and lower stress then Nidra is a form of meditation that requires you to carefully listen to a specific set of instructions that allow your brain waves to mellow and your entire body to rest. I host a monthly Friday evening Nidra at Open Space.
Please bare in mind you’ll need to keep yourself warm and or/cool so ideally removable layers and one that are easy to move in.
