What’s the Community Hatha Yoga about:

 

You are invited to a gentle Hatha flow yoga class, where we will move mindfully together with a focus on the present moment, your true being and the simple beauty of breathing and moving.

Please bring your own yoga mat and any props you may wish to use (Yoga mats are also available at the Centre).

This class is suitable for all levels of experience.

Please arrive 5-10 minutes early to get comfortable in the space. If you arrive after 7pm you will not be able to join, please do not ring the bell as this will disturb the class.

 

Facilitator:

Hazel Watson — I aim to create a welcoming and inclusive environment, so that no matter your body type, age or level of experience, you can benefit from the gifts of yoga. I have a holistic approach including the physical, emotional and spiritual bodies in my classes, encouraging you to strengthen the body, calm the mind and uplift the spirit, and offering a safe space for you to accept whatever is arising.

About donations:

Participation in our community-led events is often on a voluntary ‘by donation’ basis. This means that nobody is expected to make a payment if they cannot afford to do so. However, any donations received will be shared between the Centre and the facilitator, helping to make the events’ programme sustainable as well as to provide some reciprocity towards community facilitators’ time and skills offered.

Where a “suggested donation” is listed, this is just an indication of what the event might cost if it was ticketed – it is fine to donate less (or nothing at all). Donating is one way to show your appreciation for the value of the Salisbury Centre. Please consider ‘paying it forward’ by donating a bit extra if you can afford, helping to keep it possible for everyone to take part, regardless of their circumstances. 

 

To donate: 

  • bring cash on the evening, or 
  • donate online on  www.salisburycentre.org/donate  (using “Hatha Yoga with Hazel” as REFERENCE). 
  • pay with card at the front door, please add a reference (eg. Hatha with Hazel) using the pen icon top right on the pay-point screen

 

This is an invitation to practice ‘Dana’ (generosity) – please pay only what you can afford to attend. If you cannot afford the event, please get in touch with the facilitator to request a free/discounted place.
