About the course
We are delighted to feature yoga practice as part of our Wellness Programme this summer. Yoga is an ancient practice that brings together mind and body. It incorporates breathing exercises, meditation and poses designed to build strength, improve posture, encourage relaxation, and reduce stress.
Now on the syllabus at most drama schools, and with far-reaching benefits for all those who train (including actors), we are looking forward to including yoga in our future training.
