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.
