Pilates in the Garden Room with Marianne Flint @ The Garden Room
May 18 2021 @ 9:15 am – Oct 10 2023 @ 10:15 am

Joseph H. Pilates was born in 1883 in Germany. His father, Heinrich Friedrich Pilates, was a prize-winning gymnast, and his mother worked as a naturopath.

Pilates was a sickly child and suffered from asthma, rickets, and rheumatic fever, and he dedicated his entire life to improving his physical strength. Pilates came to believe that the “modern” life-style, bad posture, and inefficient breathing lay at the roots of poor health. He devised a series of exercises and training-techniques related to encouraging the use of the mind to control muscles; focusing attention on core postural muscles that help keep the body balanced and provide support for the spine; teaching awareness of breath and of alignment of the spine, and strengthening the deep torso and abdominal muscles.

Pilates is a method of body conditioning that helps to build flexibility and muscle strength; encourages the development of a strong core and improves coordination, agility and balance. It puts emphasis on spinal and pelvic alignment, toning the deep abdominals and stabilising the back.

Marianne specialises in teaching small classes as well as running private 1 to 1 & 1 to 2 sessions. Pilates Matwork classes include a combination of exercises and stretching techniques.  Classes include the use of small props and equipment.  These are all provided, but are also available for purchase.  Before joining a class, Marianne recommends a 1 to 1 session.

This class begins with flowing movement & a range of standing poses to ignite heat in the body and improve strength/flexibility. We end with floor based, longer held, ‘Yin’ poses to calm and soothe the body & mind. Suitable for all levels of experience as Dani guides you through different options for the poses to suit you.
Musical Youth @ The Meeting Room
May 18 2021 @ 6:00 pm – Jul 9 2024 @ 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.

Iyengar Yoga @ The Garden Room
May 18 2021 @ 6:15 pm – Jun 6 2023 @ 8:15 pm

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 in Time Magazine.
