Sheffield Yoga Centre – New Workshops for 2017

Last year a new Yoga Centre opened in Sheffield. Some students may be interested in the workshops and retreats they offer… The leaders are very friendly, I have been on several of their workshops and training days before.

As you’ll see below, they have some real treats in store for 2017.

The centre has a beautiful room for Yoga practice, but it is not huge and places are limited. Early booking is recommended for all these events.
