>> Event Overview

To provide members with some space and time to focus on their mental health and wellbeing, Bex Parker Smith Yoga is offering IIG members a free to attend yoga session suitable for all abilities.

Join Bex for this 45-minute yoga flow, specifically designed to combat the tensions of sitting at your desk. Suitable for all levels, Bex will lead us through a gentle flow, focussed on opening the upper body and creating a more stable posture, before coming down to the mat for some longer-held stretches, targeting shoulder & neck release. We'll finish with a guided relaxation to calm the mind so you can head off into your afternoon feeling refreshed and revived.

For those working with injury or pregnancy, please contact Bex beforehand on Regrettably, this class is not suitable for anyone in the first trimester of pregnancy.

>> Learning Objectives

By attending this event participants will:

  • Release stress and tension that can build up from sitting at a desk all day
  • Engage in stretching and relaxation postures to leave you refreshed
  • Practice wellbeing and mindfulness techniques

>> More about our speaker

Bex was 24 when she first stepped onto the mat and into herself. She fell in love. Yoga healed old wounds and protected against new ones. She learnt to be still, to be present, to be kind to herself.

To this day, no matter how she steps onto the mat, she always leave a little more in love with the practice and with the world, than before. That’s pretty special, and it's what led Bex to teach today.


(This is Bex’s recommended playlist if any attendees would like to practice with music. She recommends playing this off a separate device to the one you're using zoom with as otherwise it can interfere with audio.)
