Yoga in Pond Square @ Highgate United Reformed Church
Jul 24 @ 1:05 pm – 1:55 pm

Weekly, drop-in class – suitable for all levels, complete beginners welcome. Mats provided. Free parking. I teach Hatha yoga (with Yin, Scarivelli and Pilates influences) – a gentle style that still delivers strength and flexibility in a safe manner and I incorporate pranayama (breathing exercises) into all my classes. Classes are light-hearted, fun and enjoyable.

I tailor classes towards the needs of our modern society. For instance for computer users, to try and neutralise some of the negative effects of office work such as releasing hunched neck/shoulders, stretching the spine, releasing the hips and hamstrings after long periods of sitting. Hopefully, after each class, you will feel relaxed, re-energised, de-stressed, calm and a little bit stronger and stretchier! Come every week or just turn up to the occasional class.

I am well versed in the safety aspects of yoga and can provide modifications or alternatives to poses for anyone with injuries or medical conditions. I have public liability insurance and am a member of the British Wheel of Yoga. Check out my website for testimonials. I also teach private classes in your own home – contact me for details.

I also run a Thursday evening class 7.15pm to 8.30pm (£12) at Holly Lodge Community Centre, 30 Makepeace Avenue, London N6 6HL – but you’ll need to book in with me for this one as spaces are limited.

Summer Shoots: Make a Movie in a Week @ Highgate Primary School
Jul 30 @ 9:00 am – 3:00 pm

Fun, Action-Packed Summer Holiday Camp in Highgate for Ages 4-14.

Your child can take part in the Sparks’ Summer Shoots, a fun and action-packed experience where children produce their own movie masterpieces.

The movie makers enjoy taking on lots of different creative roles and responsibilities and enjoy their sense of ownership over their creativity. Parents love to see their children extremely engaged, confident and developing lots of skills, as well as their child’s proud smiles when they share their finished film at the end of the week.

The small group sizes and a high staff to student ratio (all trained and DBS-checked) at Sparks means that every child gets plenty of attention and support. Parents can feel happy going off to work throughout the summer knowing their child is engaged, learning and having fun.

Check dates and availability, learn more and book your space online at www.sparks-ignite.com
