Yoga.  

Monday 19.30 – 20.30 

Yoga with Sarah Williams.
All abilities and ages catered for.
During the class, we will warm up the joints and muscles, strengthening the core and use a flow of postures to keep the mind focused and present. One of the key ingredients to practising yoga comfortably, is learning to breathe deeply, to nurture and nourish the body through the postures so we can end the class with a relaxation, feeling strengthened, lengthened and calm, the mind having had a break from the businesses of constant activity.
