This is the third of a series of sessions to help you develop your yoga practice. Each session will take a deeper look at a particular type of pose to develop your understanding and help you improve.
This session will be taught by Lara Speroni - an experienced, clear and thoughtful Intermediate level teacher - and will focus on how to prepare for and practice the classic yoga pose Padmasana or Lotus pose. Preparing for Padmasana helps you develop flexibility in your hips and improves a whole range of other poses.
This yoga session is for confident beginner and general level students who are keen to learn how to develop their practice and learn from Lara's passion for yoga.

After our first successful men only session in April this year we have decided to run a regular months session for men.
Men commonly find that they struggle with tightness particularly in the hips, hamstrings, and shoulders and can therefore sometimes find a yoga class a bit intimidating.
The session will be taught by Jonathon Millet who has recently joined the IYISL teaching team and aims to find a balance of strengthening, stretching and relaxing the body in these sessions in a friendly, non-competitive, supportive environment.
You can read more about Jonathon's views on the men only yoga sessions in his blog post on this site.
Session times 11-1pm
Cost of yoga session: £15 members, £20 non-members
