What you'll do
You'll jump onto the mat of our weekly 60 min yoga class in one of London's East End church's on the historial Roman Road. There is a max of 20 in the class so you'll get lots of alignment correction (if requested) & a community class vibe. Be prepared to connect body & mind to let go of the week's troubles & allow yourself to be PRESENT. You will leave feeling relaxed & rejuvenated. The class consists of - Pranayama (breathing, meditation, asana & massage with essential oils. The church is filled with candles as we flow to help calm the mind. The church was initially built in 1865 as a Baptist chapel, to a design by William Wigginton, but was consecrated for the Church of England in 1870. It was built in a Gothic Revival style, built in yellow brick, banded with red and black. The church was badly damaged by bombing during the Second World War. Following the end of the war the steeple was removed and the church rebuilt, retaining the tower and north and south walls. This remodelling was carried out by J Anthony Lewis of architects Michael Tapper & Lewis, who commissioned the sculptor Don Potter to create "The Four Evangelists" on the outside of the building (c.1957). Potter also created a font in Clipsham stone. The PCC of St Barnabas Bethnal Green supports the Lesbian and Gay Christian Movement and is only the second congregation to have affiliated as a body.
