You Bend

An new yoga class has started on Wednesday mornings at Worcester Park library,  keen to make Worcester Park a bendier and more tranquil place to live, and is offering Worcester Park Blog readers their first class completely free of charge.

The yoga practiced is Hatha Yoga, the most commonly-practised yoga in the West, which is over 5,000 years old.

The organisers have handily provided me with some myth busters to dispel those old wives' tales about yoga:
  • You do not have to be flexible – you can be as stiff as a board – that’s why you come to yoga!
  • You do not have to wear a leotard or anything made of spandex – unless you really want to, although mankini’s are a definite no-no. Loose, comfortable clothing is best.
  • You do not discover a whole load of uncontrollable wind (as in the Billy Connolly sketch) although you may find muscles you never knew you had!
  • You do not have to sit in a circle chanting and ‘om’ing although of course you can if you feel so inspired!
If you fancy giving it a go, pop along and try it out -  the first class is free to Worcester Park Blog readers - but please book first as spaces are limited.

Classes are held every Wednesday morning 11.00 – 12.15 pm at Worcester Park Library in the upstairs room.
