Satsang; in Sanskrit ‘sat’ means ‘true’ and ‘sanga’ means ‘company’, so it can be interpreted as ‘company of the ‘highest truth’, ‘in the company of a guru’ or ‘company with an assembly of persons who listen to, talk about and assimilate the truth’. Satsang usually involves a discussion around a particular yoga-related topic and the opportunity to ask any questions that might arise. On occasion, there may be a reading from a yoga text, followed by reflection on how to incorporate the concepts discussed into one’s everyday life.
The ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi is today one of the most widely practised forms of martial arts in the world. Yet unlike some of its more aggressive counterparts, Tai Chi is known more for its therapeutic benefits than for its application as a method of fighting. It is a holistic meditative exercise, emphasizing the development of the whole person. It works with the subtle bodies and energies that constitute our entire being.
Tai Chi is a practice of meditation within movement, a series of movements performed in a slow, relaxed and harmonised way. It is the Taoist Path to mental, physical, and spiritual well-being, as well as being a powerful ‘internal’ martial art.
Chi Gong or qigong is an internal Chinese meditative practice that uses slow graceful movements and controlled breathing techniques to promote the circulation of ‘qi’ or ‘chi’ within the human body.

Are you passionate about running and cycling? Would you like to ease out aches and pains, improve your flexibility and increase your strength? Both running and cycling involve repetitive movements, so specific muscle groups can become strained and tight as a result. For runners, the hamstrings, calves and muscles of the hips and thighs are particularly affected, while cyclists tend to experience tightness in the hip flexors due to leaning forwards on their bikes. The class will focus particularly on stretching out these areas of the body, while building strength to reduce risk of injury.
