Tai Chi Classes
Tai Chi with Jos Hadfield
Tuesdays 09.15 - 10.45
Tai chi opens our channels of energy, softening the body, freeing the mind and letting it breathe. Exploring the interplay of yin and yang, we can feel for tightness and softness, let go unnecessary effort and reveal inner spaciousness and harmony. It is a great way to find a sense of balance and offers the means to tap into immense reserves of energy. Promoting a sense of wellbeing, tai chi works with the rhythms and harmonies that underpin our being in the world.
5 week course - £8/session or £35 for the whole course. Please book in advance. See poster for upcoming course and taster days.

Enjoyable fitness programme for body, mind and spirit.

Amanda Brown - Biodynamic Yoga
Tuesdays 19.30 - 21.00
With over 20 years experience as an Iyengar yoga teacher, I now combine traditional methods of alignment, posture and breathwork with current thinking on somatics, energetics, mindfulness and resourcing inherant in CranioSacral biodynamics. Through intelligent stretches and sequences you can safely arrive at a deeper understanding of your body and emotions, developing an awareness of how to release your natural potential and a sustainable feeling of wellbeing and creativity. I call my classes "biodynamic" to reflect this natural evolution in my approach. Props are used to facilitate safe practice.
Drop ins welcome. For further info please go to Amanda's website www.groundofbeing.co.uk or call 01326 318776
