Join our weekly yoga class

Yoga is an ancient practice that brings together mind and body. Using breathing exercises, meditation and poses, yoga is designed to promote relaxation and reduce stress.

We offer yoga here at St Clare because we believe in the importance of taking time to look after ourselves, and to unwind from the busy stresses of everyday life. Yoga at St Clare is open to anyone and everyone, and is a great way of taking an hour a week to recharge and meet new people.

Led by professional yoga teacher, Eve, the sessions take place in our lovely hospice Dining Room – situated at the heart of our peaceful grounds.

Where: The Dining Room, St Clare Hospice, Hastingwood Road, Hastingwood, CM17 9JX

When: Every Tuesday evening

Time: 5.15pm – 6.15pm

Price: £5 per session

Please remember to bring your own yoga mat, and wear non-restrictive clothing.

If you would like to come along to our weekly yoga class, you will need to book your place in advance.
