New shop in Uckfield
A new yoga studio is coming to a prime location on Uckfield High Street. Grace Annand of Uckfield Yoga has big plans to change the former flower shop, above Uckfield Volunteer Centre.
This ancient art is a group of physical, mental and spiritual practices or disciplines, and originates in ancient India. Grace has been teaching it in various locations in and around Uckfield for a number of years. Her classes have gained in popularity and many of them are now full.
Grace’s normal timetable will remain the same, but she hopes to add workshops and yoga products. She also plans to offer space to other local teachers, during the day and in the evenings. Grace said that her aim is to help the ‘community’ by keeping it ‘local’. The new studio will be warm, comfortable and welcoming and a ‘grand opening’ is planned.
Corporate yoga is something else that Grace hopes to offer in the near future. Her aim is to offer in-house classes to the thriving business community of Uckfield. This would enable employers to create a healthier workforce, reducing days off through sickness. Classes could be attended during the lunch break, enabling employees to return to work refreshed and batteries re-charged, without having to leave the building. Business is hard work and stressful – yoga is an ideal way to de-stress, stretch and relax and it helps to alleviate many ailments.
A wide range of ages and abilities attend Grace’s classes. She even does chair yoga classes for those who are less able. Students include men, pregnant Mums and Mums with babies. Everyone is encouraged to ‘listen to their bodies’ while doing the practice.
