Lunchtime yoga

Wednesday 12 September
12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

This one hour, lunchtime Iyengar Yoga class is a great way to undo the damage of sitting at a desk!
Sitting and repetitive tasks take a toll on our bodies, leading to back, neck and shoulder pain, knee and hip problems… Learn how to undo accumulated tension in your body and protect yourself against further damage! By taking some time out from your work, you will refresh and calm your mind and be much more effective in the afternoon.
You are welcome to drop-in to the class when it suits you but it is cheaper per class to book for the term (and you are more likely to come regularly if you book in advance). Yoga works best when done regularly.
