Yoga is an ancient discipline concerned with developing a holistic healthy and harmonious lifestyle. It is a combination of physical and mental exercises which promote flexibility, reduce stress and increase stamina and strength. It can offer benefits that make your body stronger and healthier and calm your mind.

Taking part in a yoga class regularly can help strengthen your lower body and build muscle around your knees and ankles which helps with balance and can help prevent falls. Yoga is often recommended for older adults.

You are never too old to start yoga – it is a great activity for all ages, and you do not have to be flexible or advanced in yoga to join in a class @ Xcite! All our classes are suitable for beginners you just need to let the instructor know at the start of the class.

Take a class @ Xcite!

Other classes you might like to try are Body Balance and Pilates!
