Yoga and Dog Walking One-Day Mini Adventures
Join Janice & Frida the Puli for fun and lively dog walks through North and East London and back to Light Yoga Space for dog friendly yoga classes with our pooches. You do not need a dog to join this event, all are welcome
Our Inaugural Walk. Hackney Marshes & The Regent's Canal
Sunday 1st October, 1:00 - 6:00 p.m.
Join us for a fun and lively dog walk through Hackney Marshes, along the Regent's Canal, and back to Light Yoga Space for a doggy friendly yoga class and refreshments
This walk will be both social at times with plenty of time to chit chat and get to know our fellow walkers and pooches. We will also practice up to 2x silent walking meditations, so up to 30 minutes of our walk through the marshes and along the canal will be in silence as we connect within and become one with the nature around us without the distraction of chat
This approximately 2.5hr walk is a really pretty mixture of canal tow paths, green fields, and urban country lanes. It's hard to believe you are in East London.
We will amble along the canal towpath, past Springfield Marina and onto the beautiful fields and lanes of Hackney Marshes past the old reservoirs, and the nature reserve. We will loop back along the canal making our way to Dalston via Victoria Park. We will stop in a cafe on the canal by Springfield Marina for refreshments along the way.
Maximum 10 dogs and 14 people only so early booking is highly recommended
Anyone on our monthly or 6-monthly unlimited yoga class memberships email for a code and join this event for just £17
Your dog, your responsibility!
The Meeting Point
We will meet at 1:00 p.m. just outside South Tottenham overground station which is a 6 minute walk from Seven Sisters underground station and on a number of bus routes including 76, 149, 243, 318, 349 and 476.
The Yoga Class
After the walk we will arrive back at Light Yoga Space ready for a 1.5 hr yoga class with our pooches who will hopefully be exhausted and should all sleep sweetly. One can only hope. Doggy antics to be expected. Absolutely no previous experience of yoga is needed to join this event.
After class much needed homemade vegan refreshments will be served. There will also be a couple of loo and snack stops along the walk. We recommend you you eat lunch before you arrive
The walk and yoga will be led by Janice Kate Fisher proprietor of Light Yoga Space.
Janice has been studying Sivananda classical hatha yoga for over 20 years and has been teaching for 15. She is passionate about supporting herself and others on the journey towards radiant mental and physical health, a healthy body-image, and self-acceptance. She very much believes that every-'body' can benefit from the transformative power of yoga. She is dedicated to Sivananda yoga and believes wholeheartedly in it as a practical force for good in the world.
“I am working more and more with exploring the healing potential of practicing yoga in the presence of animals. Animals seem to be very drawn to the gentle, healing energy of yoga and meditation, and gentle people seem to be drawn to the healing energy of animals.
I believe animals can help us evolve emotionally, energetically and spiritually with much to give us and teach us on their terms, and we are there to love and support them and certainly in this human centred society take care of them and protect them from harm.” — a word from Janice
