The gentle nature of our Zen Yoga style is suitable for beginners as well as those more familiar with yoga. Focused on breathing, energy, restoration and mindfulness, we also do gentle work on the spine that encourages the detox process. Students who join our sessions vary from those with back pain, overactive thyroid, ME, fatigue, anxiety and stress, to those who simply want a relaxing stretch with a spiritual focus.
