  • Feldenkrais Workshop with Anne Robertson – Stand easy. Saturday 2 March 2-5pm, repeated on Sunday 3 March 2-5pm Learning to stand on our own two feet is seen as the crucial developmental process for us as individuals and for our species. Being upright in gravity presents unique challenges to our balance and posture. Not surprising then that we may experience pain or fatigue when we stand for very long. How can we get better support through our skeletons so that we can stand more comfortably and move easily within standing and in and out of standing? These workshops take place in Bodywise yoga studio and cost £35 or £30 concession, each with a different focus of Feldenkrais. Book with Anne annerobbo@talktalk.net tel: 07951728862.

Yoga & Movement Teachers

All our Teachers are fully trained with a high degree of continued professional development. Find out more about the Yoga Teachers and Movement Teachers.

What kind of Yoga?

We teach dynamic flow sequences harmonising breath and movement which build strength, vitality and fluidity. This is balanced by a quiet yin style yoga practice which cultivates relaxation and stillness. We limit class size to optimise personal attention. In a yoga class you will learn about the core movement principles that underpin the practice of yoga and experience how these develop strength in the body.
