Yoga by Gemma – email

Through physical practice and a focus on the breath, we purify, strengthen and open the body and mind to become balanced.

In a typical class, we’ll start lying down, bringing awareness to the body and the breath. Then after a brief warm up, we’ll progress through specific poses, with a  specific class focus in mind: it could be opening the hips or shoulders, lengthening the hamstrings or  it could be a focus on back bending.

These classes are for all levels with modifications offered to accommodate  all students abilities.

Every Monday,  7.45pm – 9pm
