Who is it for?
Anyone who wants to find more peace and feel more energised.
If you have a basic level of fitness and flexibility the exercise you will be fine even if you haven't done yoga before (e.g. if you have done pilates or other exercise forms). If you haven't done meditation before that is also fine and you'll be guided. If you are open to spiritual content that draws from the Christian Contemplative tradition you will find the spiritual practices (meditative) are very accessible inclusive.
Bring a mat and be expectant!
Coming in January/February 2023

"Been really good to get away from it all and ‘just be’. It’s been like an MOT. I need a monthly one." - L.
"I think the main takeaway for me though is the power of the breath. Noticing my breathing, breathing into any pain in my body and also harnessing God's breath of life into various areas of my body and life." -C.
"Everything has slowed. I’ve faced stuff and found a calm and peace from the space. It was also lovely to be part of a group even though I didn't know them."-F
