What does it cost to trial a class?

Yoga £10, Meditation £6 cash on the door or online payment to try a session.  Subsequent classes are payable on a per-term basis and work out a little cheaper for more than one session per week. As classes are progressive & the benefits of practising are cumulative, there are no drop-in classes, although it’s worth making contact if you have special circumstances.

What do I WEAR/bring to trial a class?

Wear loose fitting comfortable clothing in layers. There is no dress code! Bring a yoga mat and blanket/large towel or ask to borrow one. You currently need a mask. Sally can recommend sources for well priced, good quality equipment. People begin to arrive around 10 min before the start of in-person classes and it’s best to get there at least 10 min early for your first session.

What equipment will I need if I sign up?

For Yoga: A yoga mat, specified yoga blocks (1 whole & 2 half blocks), a blanket. Advice is available for purchasing wisely.

For Meditation: Chairs are available for sitting at venues, but for floor sitting/ lying, a meditation cushion or yoga block & yoga/camping-type mat and blanket will be needed.

How do I get there?

Blackwell First School, St Catherine’s Rd, Blackwell, B60 1BN www.blackwellfirstschool.com/tour

From the village shop on Linthurst Newtown Blackwell, turn into St Catherine’s Rd at the cross roads and the school is on your right half way up. There is some parking in the school playground (via the black school gates) but if not, please park on the road outside the school (avoiding the yellow zig-zag markings) and enter via the school gates. We are up the stairs on the left (not the new main entrance), into the foyer and then into the school hall.  If a class is in progress, you are welcome to wait in the foyer. Please do not park in the school staff car park on the opposite side of the road.

The Ark, School Lane, Alvechurch, Nr Redditch,   B48 7SB                                      www.thearkalvechurch.co.uk

The website above provides details on how to get there, but please be aware that School Lane is a one-way system, so if you can check the route ahead of time (actually or on Google Maps), it’s a good idea. It’s best to approach School Lane from Bear Hill and turn left on the first bend, towards St Laurence church, following signs for THE ARK. You will then see the entrance gates to the Church, so drive through the gates and THE ARK is the modern glass building down the drive on your left. There is ample free parking. From the entrance hall, we are at the top of the stairs in the Upper Room.
