Why practise Yoga?

Have you ever wondered what difference a regular yoga practice could make to your climbing or just to your life in general? Now is your chance to find out. Beacon Climbing Centre has teamed up with Mark Mawdsley to offer weekly Yoga classes that can help you to develop strength, stability, core, balance and flexibility, in addition to aiding general well-being by helping you to counteract the stresses of daily life.

Mark teaches Hatha Yoga which focuses on holding movement a little longer so that the body can settle and adjust into the pose. With this gentle form of Yoga, you should end up leaving the class feeling longer, looser, and more relaxed.

The classes are suitable for all levels and are individualised so you can gain the most for your experience level. Mats are available but there are only a limited number. Please bring your own if you have one.
