Explore your intuitive and creative side, experiment with different art materials and relax within a nurturing and supportive space
The classes provide a safe and positive space for free expression, with the aim to develop an intuitive approach to the creative process. Art is used as a tool for pure self-expression, healing, and transformation.
During the course, we will explore different art materials to enrich our souls and find ways to relax the mind, and the body through the creative process.
A short guided meditation opens and closes the practice and helps us to connect with the calm space within ourselves.

Would you like to learn more about yoga? All of our teachers have completed many years of training and will introduce you to the asanas with full and detailed instructions to help you understand them and to enable you to progress.
Yoga Now is run by Lucy Brownhall, who has been studying Iyengar yoga for 33 years. The studio is fully equipped with mats and everything else you might need, including a rope wall (which is really good fun to use!)
Regular practice of Iyengar yoga has many benefits for physical and mental health. Mr Iyengar is credited with bringing yoga to the West and also with inventing the use of props (bricks, belts, bolsters, chairs and even mats!) which makes it possible for us all to get the full benefit of the practice. At Yoga Now, we teach informative and encouraging classes in the Iyengar tradition. There is clear progression within the levels and all aspects of yoga are gradually introduced, as the students progress.
Iyengar yoga is suitable for everyone and at Yoga Now studio, on the 4th floor of st Margaret’s House, we offer classes for all levels of experience. This class (Level 1) is suitable for Beginners and students wishing to consolidate their study at this level. Once you become familiar with the Level 1 syllabus and your strength and confidence in the poses is established, you will be able to move up to the next level of classes where you will be introduced to a wider syllabus of asanas and to pranayama.
Introductory Pass – £50 for 6 classes (to use in 6 weeks)
Autumn Term Pass – £128 for 16 classes (£8 each)
Drop-in £12 per class
We encourage you to attend the same class each week, with the same teacher, so that they can get to know you and help you progress better. However, if that is not possible, you can use your pass at any suitable class (we have 6 classes per week for beginners to choose from).
6:00 pm - 6:45 pm
Meditation is simply the creation of a nice space, it’s not achieving ecstasy, it’s slowing down and doing something with mindfulness but above all it starts from breathing. The way of breathing affects the way of thinking. And you won’t switched off your thoughts but your mind will become calmer. The process is not getting away from your mind, but accepting what’s happening without trying to fix our thoughts. We spend ⅓ of our life ruminating about past events, ⅓ illuding ourselves about future. We only have ⅓ left for present time. Meditation is simply being present. How? Starting from your body. If you feel deeply your body while it moves, you become present, because you are concentrated in what you are doing and so a natural status of meditation arises.
