Last chance with only a few places left for:

Yoga. Research has shown that a regular yoga practice can help produce feelings of calm and relaxation. It can help us in managing our mental and physical health.

We are excited that the Recovery and Wellbeing College can offer a 4-week online Yoga course with experienced Yogi Carla Daly.

The session will include meditation, breathing practice and a physical movement. These can be done either sitting on the floor or a chair, standing and lying on a mat. We appreciate it can be a little scary trying something new or unfamiliar. Carla will have this in mind throughout the course. You will be left leaving each session, relaxed and refreshed in mind, body and soul!

Starts: Thursday 22nd April 10:15 – 11:30am for 4 weeks
