August 

Yoga on the Pier

Wednesday 12th, Wednesday 19th and Wednesday 26th August

8.00am 

Join local senior yoga teacher, Helen McCabe, for these weekly Wednesday morning yoga sessions on the beautiful location of Swanage pier this summer. These hour long sessions will be gentle guided flow classes suitable for all levels and will include an introduction to simple breathing techniques, some standing and seated postures and a guided relaxation. Anyone can benefit from the simple tools of yoga, which can be a wonderful practice for general wellbeing. Regular practice can develop strength, stability, flexibility and, ultimately, a calm mind.

All levels and abilities welcome. Not suitable for children.

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. Due to current restrictions we are unable provide mats, therefore please bring your own along. You may also like to bring a cushion to sit on and a blanket or shawl for the relaxation at the end. If the weather is too wet, wild and woolly the class will be cancelled and we will let you know / post this on the Swanage Pier website/Facebook page.

We will also be putting bite size sessions up on the website and social media over then next couple of weeks, so watch out for these.

Cost £8.00 per session

Due to current restrictions classes will be limited to 8 people, we will of course review this if restrictions are eased. Please do not turn up if you have not booked a space.

If you have any questions or wish to be put on the waiting list then please email -activities@swanagepiertrust.com.
