Flight at the Museum is an exclusive yoga bird themed workshop for adults within the setting of the iconic Dorman Museum, Middlesbrough. Join us ‘after hours’ for exclusive access to the museum and enjoy the surroundings of the atmospheric Nelson Room bird gallery where the workshop will be held.
The workshop, led by fully qualified instructor Yoga Mike, will follow a gentle Ashtanga routine inspired by the beauty of birds. Over the session you’ll glide through a variety of bird inspired yoga poses, some fun balance challenges and end with a blissful guided relaxation session to leave you feeling lighter than air. Suitable for all abilities, everyone welcome. Yoga mats provided or feel free to bring your own.
Tea, coffee and social afterwards, overlooking Albert Park, will be the perfect way to end the evening. Book your place now and don’t miss out on this unique experience.
