Here are a few suggestions to get involved with for motivation, meetings, your general wellbeing – or just getting out the house for a few hours:
The Yoga Space
In-studio, live-stream and on demand classes all available with The Yoga Space's flexible mix and match style memberships. The live classes are with other people practicing at the same time. You’ll be able to see others and the teacher in real time. If you would prefer to not be seen then you can choose to not display your camera image, although this means the teacher won’t be able to suggest alignment and support to you. Teachers have head mic’s which means the sound quality is very good. Perfect for stress relief and resetting your mindset.
