The July 2018 set of 6 classes, three on Wednesday and three on Friday (both at 10.00am - 11.00am), are open to everyone and will be pay-as-you-go with a fee of £4.00 per class. Please check the website before attending to ensure the class has not been cancelled. I am waiting for an operation and it may be at short notice.
N.B.second Wednesday class will not run for this period.
The classes are based at East Community Centre, Padholme Road. Each class is suitable for beginners and experienced students. The classes include breathing exercises, gentle yoga postures and relaxation techniques. The focus is on improving and maintaining flexibility, strength, balance and generating a feeling of wellbeing. We work standing, with chairs and/or on the floor. Alternative postures will be offered for you to choose the one appropriate for you – we are all different. Please remember that you are the only one who knows how your body feels.
The groups are lively and friendly.
What to bring: If you have your own Yoga mat or a suitable body length rug or towel then please bring it along. I have some mats that are available if you do not have one. You may also wish to bring a blanket for the relaxation at the end of the class and for extra support in some postures.
What to wear: Wear comfortable loose clothing that does not restrict movement. Yoga is practiced barefoot as this helps you to feel more grounded and you become more aware of the subtlety of movement within the foot. If you are uncomfortable with this for any reason some people wear socks and take them off for the postures where their feet need to have a good grip, or they wear socks that grip.
We tend to run for 6 weeks at a time and include the summer period. Your payment will be needed on the first day of any run, unless you have already enrolled on enrolment day. The fees work out at £4.00 per session, so a 6 week run is £24.00. Cheques are preferred and should be made payable to "Peterborough U3A".
You will also need your current U3A membership card. For an out-of-date web page but an accurate map giving the location go to http://www.kathchiswell.co.uk/
I hope you find time to give us a try.
