Featuring unique classes this is the perfect opportunity to disconnect from your daily routine and enjoy the many health benefits that can be derived from meditation in motion.

Whether you’d like to aim for next year’s marathon or would like to take on your first 5k, our Running Break will set you off on the right foot.
This break will be led by Michelle Read, an experienced fitness instructor, personal trainer and running enthusiast with more than 20 marathons to her name!
Real Life Yoga Breaks
Sunday 9th – Tuesday 11th February – beginners level
Thursday 14th – Saturday 16th May 2020 – building on the basics
Thursday 3rd – Saturday 5th September 2020 – finding your flow
Join Meg, founder of Real Life Yoga for a totally un-scary introduction to yoga; learning how even the un-bendiest of bodies can build a practice, and all the positive benefits this ancient way-of-living can have for our crazy modern lives. Together we’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. We’ll also be busting some myths about what yoga is and what it isn’t and sending you back out into real life with a fantastic foundation from which you can keep on learning.
These sessions will be a combination of learning some basic asana (the moving and bending of bodies) and slowly building up to a simple-but-ohso-effective flowing vinyasa practice, as well as introductions to basic meditation and mindfulness techniques.
