FITNESS CLASSES

THE 40 WINKS WOR...

The 40 winks workout

Research has shown that taking a regular nap each day can offer a number of health benefits. From just twenty minutes a day, it can help to improve your memory, lower your blood pressure and help to provide a better focus throughout the rest of your day – and even burn calories!

We will dim the lights in Studio 2 and make sure the temperature is just right. Yoga mats and blocks will be available for you to use. Please bring a small blanket or towel if you wish. No need to get changed into athletic kit – just wear something you’re happy to nap in. Once everyone is settled, the instructor will begin the session and you will be encouraged to relax, close your eyes, and take a little nap. You will be left, unguided and uninterrupted in this state for 20 minutes. At the end of the session, the instructor will return to awake you.
