Guided Meditation for All with Pauline Blackwood
*Begins 10th October

Tuesday evenings: 5:00pm-6:00pm
Welcome to Sanity Club. A meditation course of 4 where you can find the meditation style that suits you. We will have the chance to explore what meditation is and how we can use it to create vibrant, mindful and most of all manageable moments in our lives. Consider this investment time in YOU.

The benefits of meditation included reduced blood pressure, better breathing, more positive self image, improved mental focus, improved sleep and more rational response to lifes stresses. All this leads to you being more productive, more receptive and more creative.
We meditate, we discuss, we mediate again and we take our new skills home to practice throughout the week til the next meet. This way we focus on our improvements and create our meditation practice.

Power Vinyasa Yoga with Dalila Nobile – InkedYoga

Friday evenings: 6:15pm-7:15pm
From the moment Dalila started practicing yoga it became an essential part of her day. Yoga changed her life completely and she looks forward to sharing the feeling of peace and calm during practice; the connection between breath and body. Dalila was trained in Power Vinyasa by Dylan Ayaloo in London. The class encourages you to believe in yourself and overcome your fears, beginning with your own mat and transferring this into daily life. Suitable for beginner and intermediate level, so no need to hesitate if you have not tried yoga before – you will see a massive growth in the practice in a short time.

Dynamic Vinyasa Flow with Ana Dias
*Begins 23rd September

Saturday mornings: 11:00am-12:00pm
Ana believes yoga has something to offer everyone: it helps you heal, de-stress, energize. She teaches a dynamic and playful flow focused on building full body awareness, strength and developing a more supple body. There will be a deep connection with the breath: it will be a point of focus, a metronome for the practice, a stimulus to move. We will move around the mat, play with arm balances/inversions with variations for all levels. Most importantly you will be encouraged to try new things and deepen your practice in a safe environment. Ana is a professional contemporary dancer trained in Ashtanga, Rocket, Mandala and Yin Yoga (400hrs YT)
