Yoga is for everyone. In this accessible yoga class you will journey together to explore yoga and how it works for your own unique body and ability.
You will celebrate your differences while you journey with the group to explore our own paths. The course will incorporate breathing exercises, hatha yoga movements and yoga nidra relaxation. Yoga practice will help to balance mind and body while also increasing strength and stability.
Please get in touch with The Crescent if you would like to ask any questions relating to your participation in the course.
Some yoga props will be provided, but you may be required to bring a mat.
