Celebrate International Yoga Day


As it is International Yoga Day on Sunday 21st June, we want to fulfil its aims to bring yoga and all its benefits to a wider audience by offering you free taster classes. Essentially, International Yoga Day is about celebrating yoga and informing people how much dedicating a bit of time to the art of yoga can improve their lives. So celebrate it with us by popping along virtually to our free taster classes.

Yoga is central to our offering at The Wellbeing Lab. During 'lockdown' we've moved these classes online and they are bringing a little bit of calm and self-care to all that join us. To celebrate International Yoga Day we are offering you all the opportunity to enjoy tasters of these classes for free. These tasters are designed to be enjoyed by all ages and all abilities - so sign the family up or come along yourself (via the medium of Zoom). You'll get a little snippet of what yoga can do for you.

Tess’ classes are for people of all ages, and most importantly you don’t need to be flexible to participate. Try out her free taster this Sunday and for more details of her Wednesday and Thursday classes see The Wellbeing Lab online schedule HERE.
