The course is discussion-based, with also some breathing, movement and
relaxation, including some yoga-based postures and stretches - but
nothing too energetic! please let the tutor know before the course if
you are unable to do gentle stretches, or unable to get down to lie on
There will be flexibility to reflect students' interests and
preferences. A session of circle dance is an option if the group wishes.
