5 VIRTUAL YOGA CLASSES TO TRY AT HOME

YOGA & A BREW

WHY DO WE LOVE IT?

Yoga & A Brew offers more than just the physical and mindful benefits of yoga – it offers great company, and more importantly, a friend for a bit of chit-chat over a brew. It’s all about yoga as a community – as a way of coping, as a way of checking in with yourself, and as a way of switching off and noticing.

WHAT IS ON OFFER?

The lovely Rebecca is available for one-to-one sessions via Zoom, at a time that suits you – as well as new, good-for-the-soul outdoor classes in the park and on the beach. Her one-to-one sessions are the perfect way to start and end the day – and are tailored to whatever practice suits you. Rebecca also brings calm to our days with guided meditations over on her ‘Yoga & A Brew Podcast’ available on Spotify and Apple Podcasts. 

WHEN CAN WE JOIN?

Join Yoga & A Brew in the park and on the beach during the week, or get in touch to book your virtual one-to-one or group class at a time that suits you.

WELLNESS SPACE

WHY DO WE LOVE IT?

Wellness Space is a breath of fresh air to say the least. Claire Lormor, founder of the Sunderland-based studio, reminds us that yoga isn’t all about downward dogs and stretchy lycra – it’s a space to relax the mind and give the body what it needs – be it a yoga session, a retreat, reiki or message therapy.

WHAT IS ON OFFER?

Wellness Space is all about variety – with around 11 different styles available. Inclusivity is important here, meaning there are classes to suit all ages and abilities, including beginner courses and baby classes, as well as barre, vinyasa and power yoga.

WHEN CAN WE JOIN?

Wellness Space has a number of daily virtual classes – covering everything from gentle yoga to yin yang and vinyasa flow. Other virtual experiences include ‘4-week beginner yoga course’ and ‘summer solstice intention setting and yoga workshop’.
