Easter Friday Workshop Apr 14

We are planning something of a yoga-feast over the Easter weekend, with Edgar and Lydia in the house teaching double classes and an afternoon workshop too!

On Easter Friday, there’s an opportunity to do a whole day of study with Edgar: he will be teaching the 10am and the 12.15 classes as standalone classes, but also as preparation for the afternoon session (the morning classes are drop-in and the usual class fee applies).

Friday Afternoon Workshop with Edgar Stringer on April 14th

The 2.30 – 5.30 workshop will follow up the preparatory work done in the 10.00 am and 12.15 classes. The programme will form an intensive day of Yoga with the option of attending one, two or all three classes.

The Afternoon Workshop 2.30–5.30pm

Easter Weekend Schedule at Yogawest, April 14–16th

We are delighted to say that Edgar and Lydia are teaching on all 3 days of the Easter Weekend: Edgar on Friday (10am and 12.15 classes plus the afternoon workshop), Lydia on Saturday (9.15am and 11am classes) and Sunday (10am and 11.45 classes). We expect some students will come to all six classes plus the workshop and Edgar and Lydia will plan their classes accordingly – it’ll be like a mini yoga holiday with plenty of time to enjoy the joys of the Gloucester Road along the way!
