JUNE 2024

  • Feldenkrais Workshop with Anne Robertson – Sunday 2 June 2-5pm – The Eyes Have It This workshop will suggest ways that we can protect ourselves from the ever-present influence of screens, which limit our focus, cause eyestrain and unwelcome postural changes. By becoming aware of how we use our eyes in the context of the whole self we can improve our vision and experience new and useful patterns of action. Cost £40 or £35 concession (in advance), £45/£40 (on the day). Please book with Anne tel: 07951728862. More information about what Feldenkrais is – Feldenkrais Method

One-to-one tuition is an opportunity to explore yoga in more depth where we can help you tailor your practice to your own needs, either to accommodate an injury or health issue or help develop your own personal yoga or movement practice. 1 hour sessions cost £40 to £50. Call us for more information.

Our Studio

We have a beautiful purpose designed studio here at Bodywise, a quiet oasis in the heart of Manchester city centre.

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.
