Saturday 19th June 2021:  Returning to Health

Taking time to set up a healthier future for body and mind

After the intense experience we have all shared since March 2020 we now have an opportunity to re-focus on our mental, emotional and physical health.  We can now work to empower ourselves, to pick ourselves up and brush ourselves down!  Its time to take a deep breath and move forward into a healthier future.  Our health is not in the hands of the Government, the NHS or the Media – its also in our own hands!!!  This year’s annual Yoga Workshop will look to address this. We will work together to develop a roadmap to better health mentally, emotionally and physically.  Teaching key points that are absolutely relevant to our lives today but drawing on centuries’ old teachings from the Yogic Tradition, you will have the chance to re-set, re-new and re-start.  There will be no judgement, no criticism, no worries and no expectations – just an open and productive workshop session.

The Workshop will run from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm at Longthorpe Village Hall and will cost £40.  There will be only 12 places.  Please book and pay in advance.
