Yoga is a physical mindfulness practice with many health benefits. This group is suitable for all abilities and focuses on the spiritual and physical practice of yoga. Yoga helps you to connect with yourself through a set of practices like meditation, mantras, breathing exercises and certain postures. It is a popular group and Jo is a great leader who creates a relaxed and comfortable space. (New members must fill in a health consultation form prior to attending).

Yoga

Session Brief

tryogaicon_edited.jpg

Yoga is a metaphor for life. You have to take it really slowly.

You can't rush. You can't skip to the next position.

You just have to breathe, and let go.

Is is a work out for your mind, body and soul.

- Madonna
