Antidote to the festival - Free vinyasa yoga for August

Saturday 12 August
12:00 am

For the last month of my yoga teacher training with MUDRA Yoga, I will be running some free classes throughout August. This is an opportunity for you to come and try yoga, see the studio, find out if you like my style of teaching and meet new friends, and a chance for me to try out different things and practice before I start teaching for real in September. Bring your friends, bring your family, bring your colleagues, bring anyone you like!

Classes are free but there will be a bucket should you wish to give a pound or so towards the studio hire (basically like a fringe show!).

I will be teaching vinyasa yoga and gentle vinyasa and the classes will run as follows:

Every Thursday in August
…..6pm-7pm………………………Vinyasa yoga

Saturday 12th August
…….10am-11am……………………Gentle vinyasa
…….11.15am-12.30pm……………Vinyasa yoga

Saturday 26th August
…….10am-11am……………………Gentle vinyasa
…….11.15am-12.30pm……………Vinyasa yoga

Dogs and cat owners, this is for you!
