KEEP YOUR MIND AND BODY IN GREAT SHAPE WHILST STUDYING
We might just have the solution to help you get into the studying zone with this collection of classes which relieve tension, help build focus, promote rest and gives you those ‘oh so welcome’ movement breaks.
These classes are perfect for:
- Students revising for exams
- Those wanting to improve their focus and concentration
- All levels
- Classes 15 - 45 minutes in length
Studying can take a lot out of you: you need to be on full form mentally, whilst you spend hours sitting at a desk building stiffness and tension, and whilst you build your mental power you’re most likely also building up your stress, anxiety and nerves. A few simple steps can really help you to get back on track, feel a whole lot better as you prepare for those exams and help you perform at your best.
