The University of Bristol has one of the most successful student yoga societies in the country. It is taught by our experienced teacher Nathalie Blondel, in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The classes are designed to increase flexibility and strength while promoting relaxation. Yoga is taught in the tradition of B. K. S. Iyengar. The more dynamic poses represent a useful counterpoint to the more sedentary aspects of a student's life, while the more tranquil ones can act as useful antidotes to exam stress.
The society runs one evening class a week on Tuesdays 5.30-7pm in the Stephenson room. The classes are open to beginners and those who are more experienced and progress in difficulty throughout the year. You can join up online at any time during the year.
The classes cost £4 for members and £6 for non-members. We have a few mats to rent out at each class for 50p each, but these are distributed on a first come first serve basis. We also sell mats at most of the classes for £10 each.
Starting on Monday 29 Feb we will also offer special yoga classes every other Monday. These classes will be more challenging than the regular Tuesday class. This does not mean they are only for those who are more advanced, rather if you are new to yoga and want to do more and want to become a more advanced practicer do come along.
The first class will be in the Physics Buildning (opposite the senate house) in the Enderby Room at 5.15 - 6.45pm
All the special classes after this will be at the union in AR5 at 5.30 - 7.00pm
These Monday classes will cost £7
For the classes please wear comfortable clothes that you can move in and which do not cover your feet, e.g. leggings for girls and shorts or cropped trousers for guys. The classes are performed barefoot, so trainers, socks and tights are not allowed.
