Enjoy mindful movement under the sky* to help melt away tension in the body and mind.

Julie will lead you through a series of postures which link with the breath to help focus the mind and restore balance, whilst improving flexibility and strength and reducing stress. Sessions include warm-up, alignment, posture, breathwork and guided meditation for relaxation.
