Rest, relax, restore – outdoor yoga in the gardens
July 23, 2020 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
There is no better place in the city to practise yoga than in the gardens of Bath’s best kept secret, the American Museum & Gardens. Join our resident yogi, Trish from YMCA Bath, surrounded by the serenity of nature and the stunning views, for gentle restorative yoga to calm the body and mind. The class will be interwoven with beautiful readings and a carefully curated playlist (unless we decide that nature is our music that day).
No previous yoga experience necessary.
Every Thursday 6-7pm.
£12 per person per session. Free car parking.
Booking is essential, see link below. Booking fee applies.
Other important stuff

– if you have a yoga mat bring it along but don’t worry if not as there will be some available to borrow.
– if it’s going to rain we might need to cancel. We’ll be in touch.
Hi, I’m Trish
“I bend so I don’t break”
I have been teaching yoga for many years and have training in lots of different styles, but most of all yoga is about moving with ease, using the breath as a guide, and finding space in our bodies and minds. I am passionate about making yoga accessible to everyone – it’s so much more than those Instagram poses! I love teaching yoga and seeing people turn up to class, initially maybe a little nervous and not sure what to expect, then an hour later leaving the class in a better place, a little more relaxed, nourished or energised – depending on the class! You don’t need to be bendy or a fitness fanatic to give yoga a try – just come along and see for yourself!
YMCA Bath – an amazing charity doing incredible work across Bath and beyond including health and wellbeing, nine children’s nurseries, commercial hostels, youth work through to supported accommodation for vulnerable young people. The YMCA is an international organisation and is very prominent in America running a host of activities including children’s programmes and summer camps; health and fitness – with most Americans leaning to swim at their local YMCA! The YMCA is delighted to be teaming up with the American Museum & Gardens to provide a health and wellbeing programme. Starting with yoga classes (summer 2020) and workshops (planned for 2021) we sense a natural fit between both organisations.
