Yoga is not about being able to do fancy poses; it teaches us to be kinder with ourselves and show compassion when we travel beyond the pose.

    Come along and join an hour long yoga practice. You may like it! If you doubt your abilities, you’ll never improve and if you don’t try it you’ll never know ;)

    Tuesdays at 08:25. Rooms 8 & 9
