Real Life Yoga Breaks

Friday 5th- Sunday 7th February 2021- Yoga for Un-bendy Beginners

Thursday 6th- Saturday 8th May 2021- Finding your Flow

Thursday 2nd – Saturday 4th September 2021 – Building on the Basics

Whether you’re a total beginner or you’ve perfected your Vinyasa, join Meg Jackson, founder of Real-Life Yoga to discover the positive benefits this ancient way-of-living can have for our crazy, modern lives. Together you’ll learn poses and practices to help you feel all kinds of brilliant, and equip you with tools and knowledge so that you can feel confident continuing your yoga journey at home or in a class. You could use the practice to find what is at your core, discovering how to relieve the weight of the world from your shoulders, or getting grounded against the twists and turns of real life. But following the flow doesn’t only happen when we move our bodies; it also happens when we try to still our minds too, so an important part of these breaks will be balancing the urge to move with our need to be still.

“Improve your physical and mental wellbeing and you’ll find you’ll be able to cope with more of what life throws at you. Getting on a yoga mat can help with all this. And more.” – Meg Jackson, the founder of Real-Life Yoga.
