Hatha Yoga classes, led by Richard Parker, are held at the Centre on Monday afternoons from 1.30 pm to 2.45 pm. The sessions are designed for a range of abilities and ages and include gentle physical exercise, breathing techniques, meditation and philosophy.

Yoga is a system of physical, mental and spiritual development. It is an aid to relaxation and the effects of yoga practice are both therapeutic and restorative. The word yoga means “union”; the practice aims to integrate all aspects of one’s being.

Yoga may help restore strength and mobility, improve physical and mental well-being and reduce fatigue, hot flushes, joint pain, stress and anxiety.

There is a small charge of £3 per session payable to the tutor. All monies are kindly donated to help with the running costs of the Centre.
