Yoga has an amazing capacity to heal, to empower ourselves, engage our bodies, and remember our connection to the world. With the tools yoga offers us we can clarify the mind, detoxify the body and have more energy to show up in the world with a joyful and open heart.
These yoga classes are suitable for all shapes sizes and abilities. Yoga is for everybody with every body type and is a pathway for us to grow and expand so that we can feel more connected, confident and present in our lives.
Join Lucy on Fridays at About Balance (20-22 Gloucester Place, Brighton, BN1 4AA) 3pm-4pm. The class is FREE for women who access Survivors Network and RISE.
