We're running a monthly donation yoga class with proceeds going to Mermaids UK, a gender awareness charity who campaign for the recognition of gender dysphoria in young people and lobby for improvements in professional services.
Open to all levels, this class will consist of a modern postural yoga practice of fundamental yoga poses. This class is for the LGBTQIA+, queer communities and friends specifically to ensure that everyone feels comfortable to practice yoga in a safe inclusive environment that celebrates gender expression.
Oliver Peto was driven to organise this class as an opportunity for those that have not felt comfortable practicing in other studio classes to come together and be joined by friends and others to create a supportive yoga community in East London. He teaches classes inspired by his training in the Iyengar tradition. Alignment and actions in each pose are used to establish focus and awareness.
