There’s lots of offers and events happening to celebrate the opening:

Open House Weekend
The centre plan an Open House Weekend on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th February, throughout which regular Saturday and Sunday classes will cost just £4.
Taster classes, which give visitors the chance to try lots of different yoga styles in a shorter time frame, will only cost £2. One of the taster classes is also for those new to yoga, so all beginners welcome too.
During the weekend the centre will host two Sunday yoga workshops, suitable for students of all levels and priced at a discounted rate.
Yoga Nidra – The Science of Profound Relaxation with Graham Burns
Graham will discuss some of the key principles of yoga nidra and explore how and why it works, both from the perspective of the ancient yogis and the perspective of modern science.
Yoga & The Art of Loving with Lisa Sanfilippo
Carefully cultivated poses and practices that will help you to shift your body-patterns and thought forms towards greater openness.
As part of the weekend, the team will have a puja (ritual) to invoke the blessings of Ganesha, who, in Indian mythology, is associated with new beginnings and the removal of obstacles.
The puja will begin at 4.15pm on Saturday 12th February and will be conducted in traditional form by Keshava Shastry.
Immediately after the puja, they will round off the day’s celebration with kirtan and music. The kirtan (call and response singing) will be led by Narayani, a well known devotional singer, voicework facilitator and yoga teacher. The kirtan will run from 6.00pm to approximately 7.00pm, after which Ann Malone will play the meditative sounding hang.
Guests on the evening will also receive a treat-filled Life Centre Islington gift bag.
