Thanks so much to the teachers, staff and customers who came to support us at Walthamstow Garden Party this weekend. The sun was out, and we had lots of people of all ages stop by for free 30 minute yoga sessions in and out of our tent. We are so proud to be involved in this amazing Barbican/Create run event, and it was incredible to see the effort everyone put in to make this a brilliant weekend for Walthamstow. Highlight was definitely 40 children taking part in Sarah Rush’s themed outer space yoga session on the Sunday afternoon. We have had lots of requests for kids yoga at the studio, so watch this space!
Walthamstow Garden Party 2016, over and out.
Make exercise your friend and ease menopausal symptoms. Our experts offer their advice, from gym tips and dancing to the benefits of yoga and even the latest gadgets
If you’re experiencing menopausal symptoms, it can sometimes feel as if you’ve lost control of your body – and even your mind. “The reason our periods stop is because our bodies become low on oestrogen,” explains gynaecologist Dr Heather Currie, founder of Menopause Matters. “But other consequences of low oestrogen include everything from hot flushes to low mood.”
The good news is there are things you can do to take charge again – and working up a sweat is one of them. While exercise can’t stop the menopause, Dr Currie believes it can help manage some of the symptoms.
We are delighted to announce that once again, we’ll be at Walthamstow Garden Party offering free yoga and Pilates sessions to festival goers. This is the third year that Barbican, WF Council and Create have put on this amazing free event combining music, theatre, dance, circus, film, spoken word, crafts family fun and food. We were there last year, and had around 200 people taking advantage of the free sessions, including 40 children who Sarah Rush had doing kids yoga that revolved around an interactive jungle story, which they all loved. It is such a great event for Walthamstow, and we are really proud to be involved.
This years festival takes place on 16th and 17th July and we’ll be running the following sessions:
Saturday 16th July
12.30pm – 1pm: Hatha Flow yoga with James Cassidy
