Weekly Yoga classes with Caroline Reid

Yoga with Caroline Reid
Tuesdays 10.00- 11.30am
Wednesdays 6.15-7.45pm
My weekly classes are for everyone and I offer plenty of individual help and nurturing adjustment. We practice in a slow, gentle way; dissolving tension and refining movement. As we do this, we find softness, strength, support, vitality and an increasing sense of freedom. I have been qualified and teaching Scaravelli-influenced yoga since 2002. I teach 6 weekly classes in South Bristol and you can attend different times on different weeks.
” Caroline has a way of working that simply and clearly brings the body back into wholeness and in that process of integration aches and pains can disappear or lessen and there is a feeling of utter joy that comes through.”
