FREE Community Yoga classes - North West Leicestershire
We wanted to bring Yoga & Therapy together....
Thanks to funding from the Leicestershire and Rutland Communities Foundation our free wellbeing initiative has taken shape and we have been able to put together another 12 months of wellbeing sessions surrounding yoga, mindfulness and other therapeutic sessions that we can now offer for free to the community. These specialised sessions are a great opportunity for anyone in the area who wants to boost their physical and emotional health, manage stress and come together to create a circle of people who care and support each other. So far these sessions have been of great benefit to those who have attended, and we have had people of all ages, walks of life and abilities. Topics covered can include compassion focused therapy, mindfulness training & trauma education.
As well as a physical practice we use embodiment practices to help people find presence in their day to day life.
