What we do

This group starts in January. Co-ordinator is Clive Boothman.  There are a few places still available.

If you have already emailed me just turn up with a mat, if you have one and we will start.  There is space for one or two more, male or female - so if you are interested in exercises to improve balance, flexibility and general well-being, why not give yoga a try?  You won't be asked to do anything you are not happy with!

Contact the co-ordinator to secure a place.

Reports

July 2017

We're now a well established, easy going group and  finished our Friday classes at the Fellside Centre in May. We're re-starting after a summer break in October and I intend to be at the Open Morning on September 6th with information for the period till December. There is no need for existing members to turn up on the 6th as I'll be e-mailing details later.

The style of Hatha Yoga we practise is an eclectic blend, the strongest influence of which is Sivananda

March 2017

We meet every Friday, all being well, in the downstairs room of the Fellside Centre near Booths top car park.
The group practices a range of exercises intended to promote flexibility, concentration, relaxation and general well-being. You don't have to be flexible as the aim of the class is to improve this - 'Yoga is for the inflexible'.
There's a happy, stable core to the group but if you're interested in taking part, please telephone me.

2017 Meetings: 6, 13, 20, 27 Jan; 3, 10, 17 Feb; 3, 10, 17, 24, 31 Mar; 7, 14, 21, 28 April

Since moving into a bigger, lighter and much better carpeted room at the Fellside Centre, we've been able to practise much more comfortably.
As before, we're working in the mainstream Hatha tradition, with the usual emphases on flexibility, concentration, balance and awareness of the breath in a variety of postures. The main aim behind all this is to promote mental and physical well-being. We touch on the history and philosophy of yoga, a 5500 year old practice, as we go along.
The group is full at the moment with a waiting list in operation, so any new members are welcome to contact me by phone or e-mail.
