Once you’ve nourished your belly, weather permitting we’ll take a short walk in nature, before returning to the village hall for a restorative yoga session.   With a restorative yoga practice, you will be either seated or lying down and supported with plenty of yoga blocks and blankets as your body gently lets go of muscular tension.    Then you will melt effortlessly into a Yoga Nidra, a guided relaxation which soothes the mind and leaves you feeling blissfully calm.  To aid your journey home the day will finish with tea and cake.

  • Quick and easy post run stretches.
