A relaxed Yoga session which gives wonderful well being.

About the Iyengar method: Yoga is one of the oldest systems of personal development in the world. This system of balancing the body, mind and spirit was formulated by ancient yogis, who understood man’s essential nature and realised a way to utilise all of man’s inner resources to live in harmony with himself and the environment.

Pupils learn through a carefully graded and systematic programme of asana (posture). Pranayama (breath control) is gradually introduced once students have a firm foundation of yoga practise. Yoga practice both relaxes and energizes the body and mind and brings vitality, flexibility, strength, concentration,self-confidence and mental calm. Yoga is suitable for all types of people and all levels of fitness.

Practicing Yoga helps you overcome and prevent many stresses, strains, aches and pains. It promotes a firm foundation for health and well-being.

About Yogacharya Sri B.K.S. Iyengar: The world’s most widely practised method of yoga is that taught by Yogacharya Sri B.K.S. Iyengar of Pune, India. Born on December 14, 1918, in Bellur, India, he has studied and practised yoga continuously for over 70 years.

Iyengar’s thorough study, understanding and mastery of yoga are unrivalled in modern times. Having taught for over 75 years in all five continents, he has won worldwide respect and recognition for his achievements and has made yoga accessible and relevant to people everywhere, no matter what their physical or mental ability.

He continues to set the standard for his teachers and students while his textbooks on yoga have become classics. He is based at and runs the Ramamani Iyengar Memorial Yoga Institute in Pune, India, where his daughter Smt. Geeta and son Sri Prashant Iyengar are also directors.

In 2004 BKS Iyengar was listed as one of the 100 most influential people in the world inTime Magazine.

Musical Youth @ The Meeting Room
Aug 21 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Musical Youth (Newport) group is aimed at young people (approx. 10 yrs+), providing access to instruments, tuition and a space to explore your musical creativity – parents not wanted!
We hold a weekly two hour workshop from 6pm till 8pm every Tuesday (check during school holidays), where the emphasis is on having a fun time whilst advancing your musical skills and confidence.

We usually ask the group to suggest some of their favourite songs to play, we listen to the songs and then select some that are easy enough for the whole group to manage. After that we learn the musical structure of the song and simplify it so that everyone can join in e.g. Shape of You by Ed Sheeran or All of Me by John Legend
We also spend some time focussed on developing rhythm skills – basically lots of drumming and others fun beats.


We aim to put on a small concert at some point and perform the songs in public – a little bit scary but very rewarding!


Being “willing and enthusiastic to learn” is the main criteria for joining in with us.
Instruments: If you have your own then please bring them along, if not, don’t worry – we have loads for you to play and try out.


We are all enthusiastic volunteers with years of musical experience, ready to help you play music that you choose.
