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

Using 'breathe and stretch' we will create space in the body, encouraging energy to flow.

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.

No previous experience necessary and suitable for all.

*Weather permitting - the sessions will be held in the Dementia Allotment. If weather conditions are not suitable, sessions will be moved into our Dance Studio. Access to the field is through Forest Arts Centre, upon arrival please approach a member of staff who will be able to assist you. 

What you need: Please bring your own mat - we invite you to bring a blanket and block or cushion if you choose to. We also require participants over the age of 11 to wear face coverings in the centre.
