Lunchtime Yoga

Supported by Southside Bid

Open Level

This class develops strength, flexibility and body awareness through a mix of standing and seated postures. Each session usually has a particular theme or focus, such as a specific area of the body (e.g. lower back, hips or breath), or it could be a philosophical theme (e.g. stress, acceptance or transition).

Richard George teaches many styles of yoga and movements including; hatha, vinyasa, restorative, yin, somatic, fascia fitness and yoga as therapy. He blends them all together to suit each participant’s needs and requirements. Because of this, it is hard to define his practice as one particular yoga style or brand, but it could be considered a ‘fusion’ or ‘best of.’ During the sessions, Richard is brilliant at explaining complex body theories in a simple and understandable way.

The classes are fun, creative and the perfect opportunity to release tension in the mind and body for overall health and well-being.

Whether you’re a complete beginner or a regular Yogi – there is something for all.

Mats, blocks and straps are provided.

Tutor: Richard George
