There will be an introductory yoga session with Philip Koulis, who trained in classical yoga in India. The session will comprise two hours of slow, gentle movements with theory. It complements Tai Chi practice.
It’s not modern gym-style yoga that crams as many postures in as possible. Instead, only a few postures will be covered, but with a gentle build up and with an explanation of the effects and benefits.
