Yoga, Autumn and Ayurveda

Join Sian for a morning's exploration of how the ancient wisdom of Yoga and Ayurveda can help you transition smoothly into autumn.

Luckily, Yoga and Ayurveda offer tools to help rebalance. This session will offer a grounding, balanced practice of yoga, breathwork and contemplation to help you stabilise and find your roots.

Accessible to all and with variations and modifications where appropriate, you'll finish with a long and luxurious relaxation for you to emerge revitalised and reset for the new season.
