Tutor: Nikki Tuke

In our busy, fast-paced lives, we rarely have time to ask if our lives have balance or indeed if we feel truly centred or grounded. Hatha Yoga offers us this opportunity of self-enquiry both on and off the mat. Yoga asks us to find that balance between holding on and letting go.
Using meditation, physical yoga practices, breathing techniques and Yoga Nidra, Nikki will guide you along your inward journey, balancing Sun/Moon energy within and finding a more centred space from which you can expand and grow.
