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.

Each week we will introduce a different style of yoga, all suitable for beginners. Ashtanga yoga can be regarded as a complete fitness program. It helps in increasing the body’s strength, endurance, and flexibility as well as calming and disciplining the mind. Every movement is synchronised with a specific style of breathing known as Ujjayi. This session will take place on Thursday 7 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.
