To supplement our weekly meditation, we will also be holding occasional labyrinth walks. If you have never tried this, come along and discover a profoundly reflective spiritual practice. More details anon.
Light Tribe Yoga
LIGHT TRIBE YOGA IS CURRENTLY ON A BREAK – WATCH THIS SPACE FOR FURTHER NEWS
A new yoga-based community for people who want more wellness, peace and resilience in their lives. If you caring for someone you are especially welcome, and mental health carers registered with the Carers In Mind (Richmond Borough Mind) community receive a discount on classes. Members of RPUC also gain the same discount. Yoga movements will be flowing sequences and held postures, with options for all. It’s ideal if you can get in touch before you come to let me know to expect you, but you can drop in unannounced too. Payment is made either in advance (contact me and I will give you the bank details for an online transfer) or in cash at the class.
About the teacher
My name is Clare, and I am a 500 hour qualified yoga teacher, fully insured. I trained with YogaLondon in 2013, 2015 and 2016, and have practised many forms of yoga and explored affiliated philosophies such as Buddhism, for 15 years. I’ve been teaching off and on since 2013. You can see a few reviews on my website, https://chaturanga-clare.com/reviews/. I am far from being an athlete, but I have gradually switched myself into a lifestyle that consistently tips towards healthy, but it is not about being perfect. I love challenging myself – physically, mentally (and even emotionally!) to expand my field of awareness. I’m currently doing that by running and indeed by teaching yoga, as I admit that I find that quite challenging. I am committed to lifelong learning, to improve myself for the benefit of all. I humbly share what I have learned, as it holds me accountable to my own practice … so come and join the light tribe and we’ll all go on a journey together 🙂
