Free Yoga & Mindfulness sessions

Exam time can be a daunting and tough period for many students, so taking time out to prioritise your health & wellbeing can be a useful coping mechanism. Yoga and mindfulness aim to quiet the mind. They both teach you to tune into your breath and learn to accept reality as it is at that moment. There are 2 sessions to choose from and both will be led by our inspiring and experienced Senior Instructor June Adamson.
