September 12, 2017 by Tor Park

** Please note that unfortunately we won’t have a yoga session on 16th November ** 

Do something good for yourself AND support the Farm at the same time!

Come along to our community yoga class on a Thursday 6pm – 7pm, where every penny you give (minimum donation £5) to attend the class goes directly to Stepney City Farm.

What’s so great about yoga?

There are so many benefits to yoga:

  • Increases flexibility
  • Boosts immunity
  • Helps you focus
  • Calms the mind
  • Improves balance
  • Increases muscle strength and tone
  • and many more

“Yoga is the giver of untold happiness” Bhagavad Gita

Everyone is welcome – whether you practice regularly or are just starting out as a beginner.

How do I join in?

Yoga will take place in the classroom, bring a mat if you have one, or there will be a limited number available to borrow for £1 – blocks and straps will be provided.

To book your place, please email Tor at tor@stepneycityfarm.org, and let her know whether or not you will need to hire a mat.

You are welcome to just turn up on the evening, but space is limited and priority will be given to people that have booked.

Please bring your donation in cash.

Yoga at Stepney City Farm Form – please bring a signed copy to your first session. Don’t worry if you don’t have a printer, copies will be available.

 

Who will be teaching?

Yoga practice will be led by Tor Park, who teaches Vinyasa Flow yoga.

“I first started doing Hatha yoga in the late 90s when a friend wanted to try it out and asked me to go with her. I’ve been practicing yoga regularly since then and my love for it just keeps growing. Over the years I’ve tried many different styles (Restorative, Yin, Rocket, Ashtanga, Power…), but I have a particular love of the fluid movement with breath of Vinyasa Flow.

 

For several years I did yoga because it was the only form of exercise I really enjoyed. I had a bit of a light-bulb moment to the other benefits when someone at work asked how I always managed to be calm when everyone else is stressing out. After years of being in love with the practice of yoga asana, I left my City job and decided to train to be a Yoga Teacher to share my passion and the feeling of the transformational benefits of yoga.

My focus now is on balancing the body and mind, using a mixture of fluid and powerful flow, with options for your practice to be as gentle or as challenging as you would like to make it.”
