Circle Dancing

Circle dancing is community dancing in a circle, to music of a variety of different genres from around the world. No partner or experience necessary, just an open heart and mind, and awareness. The dances are easy and fun, and both Marion and Nancy have enjoyed teaching them for a number of years.

Some are lively, some are gentle, reflective and meditative. There is no audience and anyone from any age or ability can join in. It is sociable, uplifting and promotes a sense of wellbeing.

2nd and 4th Monday of each month 10:00-11:30am | Marion: 07552-621188 | | or Nancy 07714-200621 |

Gong Bath

Yoga Nidra is known as Yogic Sleep; a deep, guided meditation or conscious sleep, which is rejuvenating, nourishing and uplifting. It helps relieve stress and insomnia, and can boost your mental capacities and energy levels.

Once in the deep state of Yoga Nidra, the Gong is introduced. The Gong will be played in many different ways and for various purposes and intentions. There will be different build and release cycles that can release old emotions. For most people, this is a profound and deeply moving experience.

These classes are popular so we do advise booking in advance. | |07929-379918 |£10.00
