Yoga: Ilkley Yoga Club
Ilkley Yoga Club
Ilkley Yoga Club has been in existence for over 35 years in the town centre, welcoming beginners and experienced people alike.
We meet weekly on Thursdays from 7:30 to 9:00pm in Christchurch Riddings Hall, Riddings Road.
We practise Hatha yoga, which involves holding various postures, short flowing sequences and balances, designed to stretch and strengthen the muscles, improve balance and posture, and improve the functioning of the body. We also use a variety of breathing exercises and ways of relaxing in order to enhance mindfulness and improve well-being.
You don't have to be flexible or athletic to begin yoga. All postures, etc. are carefully taught and there are easier alternatives if preferred. However, sports enthusiasts will find yoga complements their other activities.
Suggestions for future sessions are welcomed from our members, who range from teenagers to retired people. We pay weekly, so if you have to miss a session you are not out of pocket. Visiting friends and relatives may also attend too. Currently we charge £6 per session to cover the cost of room hire and a teacher.
If you would like to know more please phone our tutor Margaret Scott on 01943 431248 or 07914 700538.
