Yoga this Saturday!
Once a month, your weekly yoga practice here at Thames consists of a guided relaxation, such as yoga nidra (yogic sleep) or a progressive muscle relaxation (PMR), a technique increasingly applied in sports psychology to aid recovery and boost performance. This Saturday coming, your teacher Christine will guide you through a short restorative practice, i.e. a sequence featuring fewer postures, moving at a slower pace in order to prepare the body and mind for a progressive muscle relaxation. PMR includes a guided body scan, whereby you’ll contract and release specific muscles or muscle groups as you hear them named, while resting in a comfortable supine position with your eyes closed. Not only is it super relaxing, and you might well drift in and out of sleep, it's also a brilliant way to improve proprioception – that’s the awareness of body positioning in space. Our weekly yoga class runs on Saturdays from 12.30 to 1.30pm, for further information click here.
– Dont forget this weekend is also Bank Holiday so classes on Monday will be as per a saturday Schedule , so 1000 and 1100 :). See you there for the start of testing! (If you are travelling/ away again dont worry we have Wednesday as a make up session for those that might miss out. )
We also have some events planned for being outside in store too!

Time for some outdoor fitness!
Come and join us in the summer sunshine for a taste of the CrossFit Games event “run, swim, run” (1.5 mile run, 800m swim, 1.5 mile run). All you need to bring is your usual training gear, your swimming costume, a towel and £1 coin for the lockers.
Don’t worry if your swimming is not up to scratch, the lido has a shallow lane so you can plant your feet on the floor whenever you need!
