Yoga in the woods

Bulcliff Woods, Bulcliff Woods, off Denby Dale Rd/A636, Wakefield

Face to Face Recovery College Courses (18+)

Do you want to exercise whilst surrounded by the natural scenery of a woodland? With the background noise of birds tweeting, the possibility of spotting a robin foraging and hopefully the sun beaming through the trees (although none of these can be guaranteed!), then why not join us for this basic introduction to yoga course brought to you by our partners at Athelas CIC?

Yoga is an ancient form of exercise that focuses on strength, flexibility and breathing to boost physical and mental wellbeing. During the four sessions, students will learn some basic breath work, yoga poses and a basic yoga flow and give you the opportunity to develop a personal yoga practice under the supervision of an experienced teacher.

The sessions will be modified to accommodate the fitness level of each student, however, students will need a moderate level of fitness as it is conducted in a woodland setting that is accessed via sometimes muddy paths.

The location for this course is within Bulcliff woodlands, Denby Dale Road. There is a bus stop within walking distance and there are car parking facilities available. However, if you have any concerns about travel to or from the location, including financial restrictions, please contact the College and we will see if we are able to offer any support for this.
