Movement for Wellbeing
Free online classes for people under 25!
Thanks to funding from Gloucester Cathedral.
At the start of COVID-19 isolation we had free online yoga classes funded by SportEngland, these ran for three months and were a great success. From that Gloucester Cathedral have generously funded another 8 week course running 13th Oct – 3rd Dec.
Starting on 13th Oct – 3rd Dec 2020.
Tuesday Evenings with Robin Watkins-Davis at 7:30-8:30 GMT (UK)
Thursday Afternoons with Florence Cross at 5:30-6:30pm GMT (UK)
The sessions will be taking place on zoom, a secure online video conferencing site.
You don’t need anything other than yourself and access to zoom, you can use zoom on a smartphone by downloading the ZOOM app or on google on a laptop. If you have an exercise mat, that will make it more comfortable for you.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to register.
You can register even if the course has started. Registration is open.
Take a read of the posters below and watch the short 1 min YouTube video to find out more.
What will we be doing?
Hour long movement classes on zoom, combination of faster based ‘flowing’ movements and slower paced exercises to work on strength, building confidence, energy and motivation and stretching deeply, releasing muscular tension. We will also be doing some playful challenging postures to improve balance and have some fun.
No previous experience is needed, the classes will be adaptable for everyone with different stages of postures depending on if you want a challenge or if you want to take it easy.

What others say?
Robin is a fantastic teacher and never fails to make me feel happy and relaxed during her classes. Her yoga classes are perfect if you are looking for a way to unwind after a stressful day at work or just a fun evening activity. Robin is always patient and makes you feel welcome regardless of your ability. Her classes are made extra special by her glowing personality and warm energy.
Thank you so much for the lovely yoga sessions, my family and I have been doing them before bed to relax. You’re a really great teacher!
Yoga helps me feel happy and stress free and is improving my flexibility. (My cat has also been enjoying these lessons as she sleeps through most of them on the back of the sofa!)
We loved it and slept very well after the session :-)
