Unlikely Positions in Unlikely Places: A Yoga Journey Around the UK

by Elizabeth Gowling

on Wednesday 8th May

Elizabeth Gowling will tell stories from her explorations of yoga. She tells us that " I am not a likely yogini; I am too fond of chocolate and To-do lists, and sometimes fall over my mat. So this is not a 'how to' talk - it's given by an explorer rather than an expert." Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, it evokes the characters and communities met along a fascinating journey, from her dripping day of 'hot yoga' to yoga in prisons.

Please do not arrive before 2.00pm and make sure you bring your PURPLE membership card with you.

You will be aware that parking in front of the church is very limited but there are other church-owned parking opportunities nearby.

Please sign in at the U3A desk inside the church if you park in one of these church parking spaces.
