Treat yourself to a slow and gentle, yet upbeat lunchtime yoga class at Leeds City Museum. The class takes place in the stunning Broderick Hall with Dru Yoga teacher Lucy Bannsiter. This 45-minute yoga session to help you feel stretched and at ease with life’s challenges, in an incredible location.
What should I expect?
This is fun, relaxing Dru Yoga that’s suitable for all body types and levels of experience, set to carefully crafted playlists. Expect a lovely spacious yoga class, that will help you get moving and relaxing whilst enjoying this incredible setting. A lunchtime well spent!
Who is this lunchtime class suitable for?
Everyone is welcome to Lucy’s classes and she teaches a fully instructed class that doesn’t require any prior knowledge of yoga (so great for beginners), and if you need adaptions for fitness level, injury or health conditions, that’s fine too.
For those with more yoga experience, this is a chance to try a new style, one that focuses on your physical, mental and emotional wellbeing. It draws on traditions of Tai Chi, Qi Gong and Pilates and challenges through slower, flowing movements that allow the mind to release the chatter and stress.
What is Dru Yoga?
Lucy’s style is called Dru Yoga and has been described thus: “Dru Yoga seems to be all about restoration and inclusiveness. Movements are slow, deliberate and therapeutic, and the focus is very much on establishing a mind-body connection to enhance overall feelings of relaxation. You are encouraged to reach the stage you are able to, working with and accepting your abilities.”
Where does the yoga happen?
The lunchtime yoga sessions will take place in the Broderick Hall – the centrepiece of the City Museum. We will have private access to this space and can lay out our yoga mats on the map of Leeds, whilst looking up into the domed ceiling and soaking the grandeur in!
What should I bring?
Please bring a yoga mat and a bottle of water. If you can manage to bring a blanket as well that would be great. I can bring you a yoga mat and blankets to borrow if you don’t have one, but you must let me know if you need a mat/blanket in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to book
I take bookings online so that you can register and pay before the class and I know who to expect. You may come along on the day and pay in cash, but places are subject to availability and yoga mats must be reserved in advance.
If you are coming for the first time, and have not pre-booked, please arrive 10 minutes before the class starts. This will enable you to complete the health questionnaire.
