Jules Hammond’s Friday morning yoga class has proved very popular, as did her Saturday morning yoga class for men on 5th March. She says the village hall is perfect for yoga because it’s not too big or draughty and the wooden floor is ideal.

She plans to run an evening class from September on Tuesdays 7.00-8.30pm as well as the following one-off Yoga Days on Saturdays 10am-3pm:

2nd April 2016:  Stretch into Spring – Unfold and invigorate yourself.

2nd July 2016: Saluting the Sun – Make the most of the sunshine.

17th September 2016: Stand strong in Autumn – Standing postures and balances.

3rd December 2016: Keep calm, it’s Christmas! – Relax and release tension, a bit of ‘me time’.

Each day includes 2 x 2 hour sessions of yoga, plus vegetarian lunch and refreshments. 1 day £30, 2 days £55, 3 days £75 or all 4 for £90.
