  • I really enjoy this Yoga class. Bernadette plans and carries out the class in caring and professional way. The venue is spacious, user-friendly and fit for purpose.
  • I love this course because it works well with anyone in my age group, incorporates beneficial stretches and postures, combines breathing with the yoga movements, relaxation at the end of the evening. The session is paced well enough that one feels like you have been pushed, but never over-demanding. Vikki is a great instructor and works well with individual needs.
