Early morning class now 7.30!

Many of you have told us that you’d love to come to yoga early in the morning, but our 8am start was too late! So we’ve moved it…

From May 9th the Wednesday early morning class with Jess is 7.30 to 8.30 and this class now runs as a course. (You can drop in, however please check with us first as if we don’t have enough bookings the class may not be on.)

The first course is 4 weeks: May 9th, 16th, 23rd and 30th. Download booking form YW_earlyam_WedMay9thx4weeks

The next course will start on June 13th x 6 weeks.

We are hoping that this change will help get this class well and truly off the ground!
