Held indoors in a natural wood cabin overlooking an orchard. The Walled Garden is a community project next to the park's main car park and near the Visitors' Centre. This 90 minute class offers a gentle practice based on traditional Hatha/Dru yoga with chair options if required and includes some outdoor practice (weather permitting) and mindful labyrinth walk.

No car?

Lifts can be arranged from Lodge Farm Park (Main Road, Gidea Park) if transport is a problem - email for details.  Alternatively it is possible to walk there and back through the parks from Main Road (or get a lift there and walk back - downhill all the way!)

Yoga Club (following Bedfords Walled Garden Class - open to all)

Join me in the Visitors' Centre for yoga discussion (continuing with the Yoga Club course book "How Yoga Works" started last summer).  All welcome - whether you come to the Walled Garden class or not.  It is also an opportunity to meet the teacher in an informal setting and learn more about yoga without the pressure of having to take part in the physical practice.  

No charge (worksheets free to download from the Yoga Club page)
