Spring 2019

A warm welcome to the Community Centre news page. This month, the theme is yoga, as we have a regular class for adults plus a new class for pregnant women.

Siobhan Mangan, who runs the adult class has contributed this piece: ‘Ready to make a change? Our welcoming Yoga group comes together every Friday evening, to take part in a restorative style yoga, which means you are able to develop flexibility and strength in a gentle nurturing way, as the pace is slow and Yoga props such as blankets, pillows and bolsters are used to help you ease into Yoga poses with confidence and at your own pace. Each week has a theme such as ‘Yoga and the lower back’, ‘Yoga and Anxiety’ or ‘Yoga and managing stress.’ Last month’s special was ‘Yoga and Essential Oils’, where everyone learnt about essential oils, their uses and tried them during the class, to aid relaxation. Other classes are coming such as Beginners’ Yoga on a Saturday morning and early morning Yoga.

All equipment is provided, just bring yourself and dress in loose clothing, such as a tracksuit and tee-shirt. Please allow at least 2-3 hours after a meal before doing Yoga.

For more information or to book onto a class, just call Siobhan on mobile number 07803 306880 or glance at my website shangrilayoga.co.uk.’

A new class started up at the Centre in March. YogaBellies offers relaxed, supportive classes for prenatal women. Holistic practices and yogic techniques are used to guide women through their pregnancy. No previous yoga experience is necessary.

Mats and pillows are provided. The class runs on a Wednesday evening starting at 8 p.m. in the Troughton Room. Becky Talbot, who runs the class lives locally and has two children. If you would like further information, please ring Becky on 07378 319270 or email her at becky@yogabellies.co.uk.
