Tollcross Community Centre is part of a Community Wing attached to Tollcross Primary School. The Centre provides a base for numerous local and city wide groups to meet up socially and participate in a range of learning, recreational and creative activities.
Thanks to Stan Reeves and the committee at Tollcross Community Centre the yoga classes started in May 2008 and have been running ever since. My aim was to provide affordable drop in yoga classes in a central location on a weekly basis. The classes run throughout the year and students are welcome to drop in to any of the classes.

Ashtanga is a specific sequence of postures linking breath and movement (vinyasa). Ashtanga is an athletic flow class combining strength, flexibility and stamina for a complete practice. Each class will consist sun salutations, a series of standing poses and then seated postures. An Ashtanga class traditionally ends with a finishing pose series including backbends, shoulderstand work, headstand variations and savasana (relaxation). This class will give you the opportunity to flow, breathe, and sweat! Variations are given to suit all levels

The focus in this class is on abdominal and core strength. Based on the principles of Ashtanga Yoga, this class will look at postures which will stretch, tone, flatten and strengthen the abdominal area. We will work to build confidence, flexibility and strength in preparation for arm and head balances. Variations are given to suit all levels.
Bring your mat and turn up five minutes before the class is scheduled to start. There are some mats available to borrow should you need one.
