Upcycling Fashion

Led by Anurita Chandola

Fast fashion is leading to tonnes of clothing being discarded daily which has a huge impact on the environment. Globally, just 12 percent of material used for clothing ends up being recycled and it takes a lot of energy to recycle them. On this course, you will learn how to create unique and sustainably made garments by giving your old clothing a new life.

Using an old clothing item, you will learn to apply different techniques by using design principles to make a unique piece of sustainable upcycled clothing.

Bring a few pre-loved garments or something that you haven’t worn for sometime to use during this short class. You don’t need any previous sewing experience for this class

Align and Flow Yoga

Led by Deborah Le Vene-Page.

Align and Flow Yoga is influenced by the biomechanics and heart orientated philosophy of the Anusara Hatha style of yoga. With a specific alignment focus within the flow of postures the practice will tone and strengthen the body, improve posture and create more freedom in the body and mind resulting in a calm and relaxed state of being.

Each week there will be a different theme weaving its’ way through the session, but a typical class starts with breathing techniques to centre and ground, poses to warm up and then progresses to a fun and challenging mix of vinyasa and alignment yoga.

This class is designed to cultivate focus, stamina, strength, and flexibility. Leaving time at the end for a well-deserved relaxation.

Come prepared for an energising class that will also leave you feeling relaxed.

Suitable for 18+ years
