If only every day could start or end like this!” said one of my yoga students – so I’m glad to be starting a class in our new-look building.

My classes are a generic ‘Hatha’ yoga style, the most widely taught form of yoga in the West. These classes offer students postures and movements to stretch and strengthen the body, to develop breath awareness, to relax and to meditate. It is non-competitive, suitable for people of all ages, and everyone is encouraged to work to their own level. Modifications and adjustments are encouraged, and you don’t have to be a contortionist to take part – though it’s fine if you are!

Please provide your own yoga mat if you can, and preferably a blanket and a cloth belt (though I will have a few spares).

The new meeting room, that so many volunteers have been working on, will be ready for classes starting on Monday 21st May .The classes run from 5.45pm– 7.15pm on Mondays. The Café may provide soup or other food, so that campaigners can be refreshed for their meeting at 7.30!

Charges for the general public are £7 drop-in (or cheaper if booking a block in advance), and BFOE members get an extra £1 off.

Activities range from being low impact to high demand – so be sure to consult your GP if you have a medical condition which may be affected.

About me: An old BFOE campaigner, I have been a teacher of various subjects for over 30 years, and have practiced yoga since 2005. I am qualified to teach with the British Wheel of Yoga (the officially recognised body). I am also a long distance runner – so can sympathise with people who have tight hamstrings!

Yoga is not about touching your toes, but what you learn on the way down to touch your toes!
