Yoga & Wellbeing Morning: A journey through Yamas and Niyamas

22 May 2023 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

Yoga & Wellbeing Mornings

Join the team from YMCA Bath for a seasonal morning of yoga and wellbeing in the spectacular grounds of the American Museum & Gardens, just ten minutes from Bath. Take time for self-care and come and find quiet beauty, flow and relaxation in special spaces, where you can reset, connect with nature and be inspired by spring. Our Yoga and Wellbeing Mornings are once a month, with a different seasonal focus and theme for each session.

22 MAY – A journey through the Yamas and Niyamas from yoga philosophy

The yamas and niyamas make up guidelines or moral code by which to live our life – a little like the ten commandments in the Christian faith. The yamas are things not to do, or restraints, while the niyamas are things to do, or observances. These are part of the building blocks of modern yoga and give us an understanding as to where our yoga practices of today fit into the philosophy of past times. Neil will explain these guidelines and look at their relevance today.

Your morning will include:

  • Welcome herbal tea
  • Introduction to the yamas and niyamas of yoga philosophy
  • A yoga class that incorporates some of the more familiar seated and standing postures
  • A second, more gentle class, with postures focusing on relaxation and wellbeing
  • A deeply relaxing guided meditation
  • Healthy brunch from the new American Garden Deli

Yoga & Wellbeing Mornings are always on a Monday, when the Museum is closed to the public, which gives you exclusive use of the grounds and facilities, including expansive gardens with breathtaking views over the Limpley Stoke Valley in the Cotswolds AONB. Wellbeing events at the American Museum & Gardens are organised in partnership with the YMCA Bath – we are two charities working together for community wellbeing.

Things you need to know:

Price includes exclusive access to our Grade II listed gardens on the day. Please note that as we are closed to the public on Mondays, there will be no access to the museum or exhibition gallery.

Numbers are limited to 15 adults.

It is recommended that you bring layers of clothing, suitable footwear and waterproofs, as well as your own yoga mat. You may also wish to bring a blanket and/or cushion for the relaxation element.

Alternative indoor space is available in the event of heavy rain.

All tickets are non-refundable unless the event is cancelled by the organiser. If we need to cancel for any reason, we’ll be in touch.
