Nurturing the mind is just as important as the body.
Too often we get caught in the trap of working on our body image, while we ignore matters of the mind.
The beautiful thing about yoga is that you can work on both simultaneously. Strengthen, tone and increase your flexibility while decreasing stress and anxiety. By using a mix of standing poses and poses done on the ground, you'll focus on breath work and calming the mind throughout your session ❤.
Spaces still available for 8.15 and 9.30am classes tomorrow (Saturday). Book now by contacting Michelle on
