It's perfect for those moving through the lower grades, but also ideal for anyone who has not had formal coaching before.

Sid GrahamSid Graham

I first found my love of yoga in around early 2016 through rock climbing. Having been a member of the GB Climbing Team for five years, it was introduced to me as an application to be practiced alongside climbing in order to compliment the sport. It wasn’t until I began to delve deeper into my own personal practice that I soon found yoga (or Yog) was in its self a treasure, not only through the physical asanas but through the mental and spiritual side of practice where the benefits exceeded beyond my expectations.
