Each week the class has a different theme that will enable you to develop your yoga practice but also take time to reflect on different areas of your wellbeing. The classes are suitable for all levels, including beginners. Led by Harriet Elizabeth.
Fridays & Saturdays / Laura’s class is fun, friendly and accessible to all abilities, including those brand new to Yoga. The style is Contemporary Hatha, breaking traditional poses down into their component parts to gain an understanding of them within your own body and mind. Led by Laura.
Salsa /Wednesdays, Thursdays & Saturdays / 5.30-6.30pm
Want to learn to dance salsa from a fun, patient and friendly instructor then try this class with Thomas. He will teach you all the basic steps and technique to be able to dance with confidence on the dance floor. He is the UK’s first qualified salsa dance teacher and therefore has both the knowledge and experience to help even those with two “left feet” who think they have no rhythm.
Students will be made to feel comfortable and relaxed, follow the rhythm and basic steps in small memorable chunks. This class is fun and a great way to meet new people. Viva la salsa! Led by Thomas.
