Yoga on the Pier 

Weekly from Wednesday 6th July - Wednesday 31st August  at 8.00am

Intermediate Yoga on the Pier - weekly from Thursday 14th July - Thursday 28th July at 8.00am

Join us again this summer for our weekly morning yoga sessions on the beautiful location of Swanage pier with local teacher Helen McCabe. These hour long sessions on Wednesday and Thursday mornings will include an introduction to simple breathing techniques, some standing and seated postures and a guided relaxation. The Wednesday morning sessions will be a gentle guided flow class suitable for all levels of experience, whilst the Thursdays will be a more dynamic session, suitable for anyone with regular postural yoga practice who is looking for a more challenging class.

This will be our fourth year of summer yoga sessions on the pier and they are such a joy. Not only are they are a wonderful start to the day, they are also a lovely opportunity to connect with other people in our community here in Swanage. Most importantly, you will be helping to support the fantastic work of the Swanage Pier Trust in looking after this magical place.

Anyone can benefit from the simple tools of yoga, which can be a wonderful practice for general wellbeing. Just a few minutes of regular practice can support us to develop strength, stability, flexibility and a calm mind. All levels and abilities are welcome on Wednesday mornings. Thursday mornings are a more dynamic class suitable for anyone with a regular yoga practice (not beginners). Please contact Helen (info@yogaatthespace.com) if you would like more information about the classes or are not sure which one would be suitable for you.

We are not able to accommodate children at either class.

These classes will take place outdoors, on the pier itself, with the beautiful views of Swanage Bay as our backdrop. The nature of the location, however, does mean that the floor surface is not as even as an indoor floor, which you need to be mindful of. Please dress in clothes that are comfortable to move about in. We are also exposed to the elements and hopefully will be blessed with warm sunny mornings, but do please come prepared with layers for extra warmth and hat / sun screen, as appropriate for the weather. Yoga is traditionally  practiced barefoot so a mat is essential. If you prefer to wear suitable outdoor fitness shoes that is also OK.

£10.00 per session

£25.00 for three sessions
