Body and Soul Yoga Club


The Yoga Club is something completely different from classes you might go to at the gym or in a hired hall.  The idea is to grow a yoga community where members can become involved both online (for those who don't have time or prefer not to go to classes) and at face-to-face meetings.  It also gives members a chance to learn more about the theory and philosophy behind yoga - usually not possible in a conventional class.


The Club

The Yoga Club is still in development and, at the moment, membership is completely free of charge.  The plan is to start small and eventually it will grow into something really special uniting  Body and Soul through yoga!



Eventually we're hoping to bring members yoga related stuff eg freebies, discounts, and honest, unbiased class and studio reviews as well as providing a forum for all things yoga. 

Book Study

We are currently studying  "How Yoga Works" by Geshe Michael Roach (a story leading readers through The Yoga Sutras, the ultimate source of all yoga, in an easy and accessible way). 



There is no requirement to purchase the whole book (worksheets include a summary of each chapter) or do extra homework reading but you are welcome to read the book for yourself if you want.


"How Yoga Works" can be purchased via Amazon for £12.84

Worksheets and handouts are available for download from this page.  Members will receive email updates whenever a new worksheet is added. 

Meetings

Every Thursday at 12.30pm (after the Walled Garden Class) in the Visitors' Centre, Bedfords Park

Members meet and chat over coffee.  It is also be an opportunity to explore the study book together and put the sutras in practice.  No need to bring a mat but wear comfortable clothes and expect to take part in chair yoga, yoga meditation and pranayama (breathing techniques).  If the weather's nice we go outside for some impromptu outdoor yoga (no need to bring a mat - all asanas outside will be standing).
