Breathing Space


Each week, different members of the St Peter’s House team will draw on the ancient wisdom of their spiritual paths to create a space which is gentle, contemplative and mindful. The sessions will vary depending on the facilitator, but each may draw on poetry, music, sacred texts from different traditions, gentle movement or times of stillness.

  • Drop-in, free.


Yoga on the Healing Journey


Living with chronic pain, fatigue or stress makes connecting with pleasant physical experiences hard, and that’s where simple, mindful movements become invaluable! This session is breath-led and ‘non-achieving’ - the focus is on reconnecting with the body in positive ways. Slow-moving, gentle and surprisingly joyful, these sessions are suitable for beginners and people of all levels of ability and fitness.
