I have been to the Monday Wednesday and Friday classes on a regular basis with Vidyadasa and he makes each of them work for the individuals who attend. I would also recommend his embodied yoga principles as it helps you to reinforce personal strengths and improve areas that need personal development in your life.[/su_quote]
Testimonials for the Wednesday yoga class at lunchtime
[su_quote=”Maureen Atkins-Yoga Teacher”]Vidyadasa leads the practice of Yoga in a way that allows his students to flow from one asana to the next encouraging concentration, ease and softness in the body & breath, whilst developing co-ordination, strength and balance. I believe this is Yoga as it’s meant to be and perfect for a lunchtime class. If you can get to one of his Sunday morning 3 hour Yoga & Meditation mornings they are truly worth taking the time to do.[/su_quote]
