Drumlanrig Castle introduces om-azing new classes
20th September, 2016
Drumlanrig Castle is ready to say ‘Namaste’ and ‘welcome’ to budding yogis with brand new drop-in yoga classes.
The vinyasa flow classes, which coordinate breath with movement and encourage relaxation, will take place between 9.45am and 10.45am every Tuesday from 26th April.
Led by local teacher, Jane Bailey, the classes will give individuals of all ability levels – even those with little or no experience of yoga – the opportunity to enjoy the relaxing practice in the tranquil and picturesque surroundings of Drumlanrig.
Anna Fergusson, Visitor Services Manager at Drumlanrig, said: “We’re delighted to offer these brand new classes. Drumlanrig Castle sits in such peaceful surroundings; yoga is a natural fit.
“The class fee of just £5 allows access to the Estate for a total of two hours, with no standard Estate entry fee on top – so plenty of time for some well-earned, post-yoga refreshments in our Tearoom afterwards.
“Jane is a wonderful teacher, and we look forward to welcoming people of all ages and abilities to give the class a go.”
Jane Bailey, who will teach the classes, said: “I can’t wait to introduce more people to yoga with the new classes at Drumlanrig. Yoga is such a beneficial practice – not only does it improve physical flexibility and strength, but it also improves posture and balance.
“The vinyasa flows I’ll be teaching encourage relaxation, deepen sleep patterns and help people to better cope with stressful situations by boosting the mind. And whilst it can be challenging and physical, it’s perfect for easing the aches and strains associated with higher intensity exercise like cycling and running, as well as preventing injury.”
Classes begin on Tuesday, 26th April at 9.45am, and cost just £5. Participants simply need an exercise mat and plenty of enthusiasm.
