Yoga Group

Research has shown that a weekly Yoga class for older adults can improve physical function, mobility and balance. Yoga can also improve mental wellbeing. The classes focus on asanas (postures), the breath and relaxation. New members are very welcome. Classes are suitable for everyone, including beginners.
