BIG NEWS!!!! This is Flow Yoga Devon’s new venue!
We are so excited to announce the most exciting venue yet for Flow Yoga Devon. Powderham Castle is steeped in history, the magical family home of the Earl and Countess of Devon.
Yoga lovers Charlie and AJ have generously offered the Grand Dining Hall to host classes for the community, so that members of the public can enjoy this wonderful healing art in the most atmospheric of settings.
Together we will be embracing the colder seasons by boosting the “hygge” quotient throughout the class. If you’ve not heard of hygge, it is the Danish term for “the art of creating intimacy in everyday settings”, or “cosiness” to put it more simply.
So the fire will be roaring, in the evenings we will be lighting the candles, and we will be enjoying blankets and lavender eye pillows to really make you feel like you’re being pampered.
The aim of these classes is to make yoga accessible for all. We want people to feel comfortable that they are not going to be pushed beyond their limits, or compete with others, but rather find the joy and the healing that is available when you learn to use the breath to connect your body and your mind, and discover just how good you can feel when you give yourself the space.
Come and join us, and experience some yoga magic in this special place.
Initially the classes will run for 6 weeks from 7th November until 17th December 2017.
Mondays 6.45 – 8pm Yoga by Candlelight
Set in the atmospheric dining room of Powderham Castle, the mood will be set to “cosy”, whilst we enjoy an escape from our busy lives and discover the healing benefits of yoga on the body and mind.
Wednesdays 9.30 – 10.45am Flow Yoga
This class is all about balance, energising yet relaxing, strengthening and lengthening, challenge and rest, all you need for a healthy, happy body. Spend the morning at the castle, meet new like-minded people, and be inspired to feel good.
Numbers are limited to ensure quality and safety throughout the class, and this also means that all levels are welcome, as modifications can be given for special conditions*.
*To be discussed with the teacher prior to the class.
