The University of Bristol has one of the most successful student yoga societies in the country. It is taught by our experienced teacher Nathalie Blondel, in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. The classes are designed to increase flexibility and strength while promoting relaxation. Yoga is taught in the tradition of B. K. S. Iyengar. The more dynamic poses represent a useful counterpoint to the more sedentary aspects of a student's life, while the more tranquil ones can act as useful antidotes to exam stress.
The society runs two evening yoga classes a week, during term time, on Mondays and Wednesdays from 5.30-7pm in the University Union building in MR5A. The classes are open to beginners and those who are more experienced and progress in difficulty throughout the year. You can join up at Freshers Fair or online during the year.
The classes cost £3 for members and £5 for non-members. We have a few mats to rent out at each class for 50p each, but these are distributed on a first come first serve basis. We also sell mats at most of the classes for £10 each.
For the classes please wear comfortable clothes that you can move in and which do not cover your feet, e.g. leggings for girls and shorts or cropped trousers for guys. The classes are performed barefoot, so trainers, socks and tights are not allowed.
