In the past, yoga was a pastime set aside for the overtly spiritual or new age, but these days it is becoming much more widely accepted as an important component of health and wellbeing. Especially when living in the city and working long hours sat stooped behind a desk, yoga provides a way to nurture both your body and your mind. It can also be a great way to meet friends and to enjoy some peaceful and relaxing time together.
Blue Cow Yoga is not just about manipulating your body into complex stretches, it is also focused on the gentle relaxation and nurture of self. Thus, in addition to yoga and pilates classes, there are also a wide range of treatments available at their wellbeing spa – and judging from the reviews online, these are rather special. The vast variety of massage treatments they offer here can be great to help you with all sorts of problems – both physical and psychological – including stress, back pain, sports injuries, digestive problems and fatigue.
