It’s a challenging session but the hour and half flew past, leaving much smoother movement and clearer minds. George Lane takes classes on Wed 8- 9pm (also Fri 6-7pm and Tues 12.15- 1.15pm). You will still work holding and changing postures yet George’s class is super relaxing with lots of calming stretches and he has the unique gift of making us feel as light as a feather and beautifully graceful, balanced and uplifted.

avid proposes creating a Barbican Running Club. There'd be twice weekly runs - a shorter run on Wednesday evening around the Podium for beginners/intermediates and a Sunday longer run (6 miles) for the more experienced. Running can be a solitary activity and meeting fellow Barbican runners via a club and maybe coffee afterwards is a great idea.

To gauge possible participants please can you email David at if you're interested in joining.
