Surrounded by stories of the past, we’ll dive into some of yoga philosophy’s greatest stories and myths – while moving through a slow, juicy asana class. From Arjuna’s dilemma on the battlefields of The Bhagavad Gita, to the great leap of faith taken by Hanuman, these stories are varied, rich in symbolism and unravel some of life’s deepest contemplations.

Whether you’re interested in stories, philosophy, or simply a physical yoga practice, this event is a rare opportunity to move, breathe and flow in a beautiful, iconic space. Suitable for both beginners and experienced yogis alike - everyone is welcome at Yoga in the Library. Please BYO yoga mat and water bottle.

Morning classes aren't your thing? No problem! Come along to to an evening session on Tuesday 12 February, or join us for another morning session on Tuesday 5 February.
