An accessible online yoga session which is suitable for any experience or ability and brought to you live from the spectacular Tamar Bridge. We’ll begin by settling, bringing our awareness to the body, the mind and the breath. We’ll develop a useful yoga breath practice, using this whilst we limber the body, working through some postures and prepare for a final posture. From this we’ll practice a simple meditation that leads into a relaxation practice.
