After the indulgences of the festive season let us help you to achieve a better you and a fitter Bankside for 2016. Throughout January we will be running a series of fitness and wellness activities for a better mind, body and soul. From weekly yoga to outdoor exercise sessions, a talk on nutrition, plus a selection of exclusive Buzz card offers on healthy lunches, gyms and more.

With Yin yoga special attention is given to the skeletal systems of the body as well as the role of fascia and connective tissue rather than to specific muscle groups. With Yin the intention is to support the muscles with the bolsters/blocks and so enable them to relax completely. Yin yoga goes slowly. Holding the pose for up to five minutes at a time creates the opportunity of working into the connective tissue around the joints, releasing tension, slowly softening and loosening and so over time increasing mobility and range of movement. If you like the calming effect of stretching without having to break a sweat, then Yin might be the right class for you. This session will take place on Thursday 14 January, 8 - 8.45am at the Bankside Community Space.

Please wear clothes that you can move easily in, bring some water along and do not eat anything heavy beforehand. No prior yoga experience (or ability to bend like a pretzel) required - this is gentle, accessible yoga. If you have a yoga mat do bring it along with you or a large towel will be perfectly fine also.

Liz Castro-Thomas has been practicing yoga for the past 18 years. Qualified to teach various types of yoga (Ashtanga/Yin/Hatha) she intends this class to be gentle, relaxing, fun, free of the no pain no gain mentality of the gym. At the end of the session you should leave with the feel good factor of being noticeably more relaxed then on arrival.
