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
January Adventure: Saturday 20th January
11:00 - 4:00 p.m.
Wrap up warm and Join us for a crisp and wintery hike through Walthamstow Marshes and along the canal
We will stop for lunch at Mother Works a beautiful plant based cafe/restaurant along the canal near Hackney Wick
We will then continue along the canal through Victoria Park and back to Light Yoga Space for a warm and cosy dog friendly yoga class
Yummy homemade vegan refreshments will be served after class
The walk itself in total is a good 4hrs at least, last time we did it we were clocking about 18-20,000 steps/7 or so miles, so get your walking boots on. We will walk at an easy pace
These walks 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 a silent walking meditation, so up to 30 minutes of our walk will be in silence as we connect within and become one with the nature around us without the distraction of chat
Maximum 8 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 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
A little mention in The Telegraph can only be a good thing right...
