Know Your Overlocker

Friday 25 October
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Know Your Overlocker aims to teach you how to use an overlocker to enhance your sewing projects.

Overlockers are amazing machines that can stitch, trim and neaten seams all in one operation. Yet so few owners fully understand them or use them to their full potential. Most people who have overlockers only use them for neatening edges but they can do so much more. This short sessions teaches you to get to know your overlocker.

Other functions include sewing in elastic and lace trims, creating decorative seams on sports and casual-wear, rolled hems on evening wear, and making home furnishings. Not to mention being able to sew up jersey fabrics quicker and more neatly than your normal domestic sewing machine.

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).
