In order to boost our productivity in the arts community office we will reserve 11am – 12pm as a quiet hour. During this time we’ll get our heads down and work with the office door closed. At any other time you are welcome to pop into the office and we will be happy to help you or answer any questions you may have.
To make it easier for you to know when we are in we now have a rota on our door so you know when Sophia, Cécile and Johanna will be in the office.

Don’t forget you can pick up a canvas or board from either the main office or the Arts Community office on the third floor of St Margaret’s House!

Now is a great time to start – we have yoga classes to suit everybody!
IYENGAR YOGA is a complete system of yoga – we do everything, beginning with alignment in the standing poses, through a variety of sequences, seated postures, twists, inversions, backbends to long holds in supported (comfortable) restorative asanas, relaxation and pranayama (breath work). We have a very thorough teacher training system which enables us to give individual support to students, adapting poses so that everyone can do them, even the very stiff or infirm! Students progress at their own pace so that everyone is challenged but nobody runs ahead of what their body can cope with. more
