Please remember that due to the bank holiday on Monday 6th May, the centre will be closed and no classes will run that day. This means that the current block for Monday classes will end on 22nd July. Other classes that week will run as normal.
The centre will also be closed for the Spring Bank holiday between 27th May to 1st June.
If you have any queries regarding your class dates, please contact us or speak to your teacher.
Some of you may be aware that our director, Frances Homewood, has been teaching Iyengar Yoga to footballers at Sheffield United Football Club. Classes started with young players from the Academy and the First Team have also had sessions which have proved very successful!
Frances’ work with the team was featured in the match programme on Tuesday 23rd April. The match was attended by 23,000 people!
Great news for the centre and let’s hope the footballers inspire many more to come along and find out more about the benefits of yoga!
The new class blocks are starting soon – on 29 April. Please note some important information below about the length and price of the next 10-week block!

Back in February we held our first family yoga session with regular centre teacher, Liz Whelan.
The event was a great success with parents and kids coming along to play and explore yoga together. The session, suitable for 7 to 12 year old children and the adult of their choice, provided an active and energising class which started with a warm up to music, followed by partner work and ending with a joint relaxation.
The benefits of yoga are great for kids as well as adults – Boys and girls can benefit from the increased physical strength yoga brings whilst the benefits of taking part in a non-competitive exercise alongside peers can develop self-confidence, imagination and powers of visualisation.
Below are some photos from the event:
Back in January, Sheffield United Football Academy approached our director and senior teacher, Frances Homewood, to find out more about the centre and how yoga could help their young players prevent injury.
Other clubs, such as Manchester United, have found Iyengar yoga very helpful in reducing injuries and improving the performance of their players and the Academy wanted to offer this to their own players having heard about the centre and the range of classes we provide. Since January, the 16-18 year old players plus their coaches and physios have been attending classes specially tailored to them.
Below are some great photos from the first session:
