About this subjectYoga

Yoga uses slow movements and poses, with deep breathing exercises. This will help improve your wellbeing and teach you mindfulness techniques. You can then use these techniques to calm your mind in the chaos of everyday life.

Whether you are new to yoga or want to revisit some forgotten moves, our courses will set you on your way. Whatever level of experience, you can feel these benefits in this course. Your tutor will ensure you are able to work at the right level for you.

You will be given the skills and knowledge to practise the exercises at home and fit them in to your daily routine.
