Updates on summer yoga

I feel hugely blessed and inspired this month to have been able to teach so many lovely students in a huge variety of settings this summer – from Cardiff International Pool, Hot yoga studios like Seren, to the park, by the beach and even a hospital. 

Being part of the first ever Gower Yoga Festival was pretty magical a few weekends ago. The weather was kind enough to stay fairly dry and so i taught outside in this beautiful location by the beach and ran a discussion group on becoming a teacher on Sunday lunch. I also had the opportunity to talk to lots of other yogis and attend workshops on everything from singing to zenergy.

Another huge source of pleasure this summer has been my outside classes in Roath Pleasure Gardens. Each week students have turned up and focused on their practice even with a few errant dogs running around our feet, grunts from the tennis courts and the gentle hum of traffic. You guys have been fab! We are finishing this series with a special event this Thursday with all donations going to DEC (www.dec.org.uk). Please do come along if you can, bring your friends and family. Join us at 18.30 in the park this Thursday for this special last session.

Finally I am very excited to say that from September I will be teaching at Yoga Fever – a hot yoga studio in Splott. They tend to be fully booked so if you want to come to class make sure you reserve your spot via the Yoga Fever website

Looks like the weather is once again going to be kind so there will be relaxing yoga in roath pleasure gardens this Thursday 6.30pm.

I have really enjoyed teaching over the last few weeks meeting new people from the area, helping people try yoga for the first time or for others to get back into a regular practice.

Everyone is welcome at the class. You’ll need a mat or old towel to work on and something warm for the relaxation. It costs £4. Classes start promptly so please try to arrive a few minutes early.

Yoga in the park today (thursday 11th July)

To confirm as its beautiful weather we will be back doing yoga in the park at 6.30pm. It is in Roath Pleasure Gardens (the middle one between the roath park and the recreation ground) beside the tennis courts. You will need:

  • Mat or old towel to practice on
  • Something warm for relaxation – blanket, socks, jumper etc.
  • £4
  • A sense of adventure

But the good news is you don’t need to be experienced or advanced to practice this form of yoga it will be a good mixture of challenging and relaxing poses. Please arrive at least 5 minutes before class starts. Any problems finding us my number is 07840 008659. Sunshine on the Grass   image rights belong to @virginia(ginny)sanderson 

Update on dates for the next few weeks

A deep heart felt thanks for the dedicated yoga students who came to practice in the park last night. I am excited to be running these pop up sessions over the summer in Roath Pleasure Gardens (weather permitting). To join the session no need to book just turn up with a mat or old towel, warm jumper or blanket, £4 and a curious mind. You can find us by walking over the little white bridge towards the north side of the park where the tennis courts and bowls green is, we will be just to the left of the tennis courts beside the stream.
