Restorative Yoga

Eliza from Yoga Me Happy will be leading parent/carers in an hour of self-care at the new WFPF dedicated restorative yoga session. As a parent of twins with additional needs, Eliza is well-versed in the challenges the roll as care-giver involves, and with over 10 years as a yoga instructor, is excited to combine both passions to help ease the pressures faced by dedicating so much of yourself to someone else's care and bring much needed balance back to body, mind and breath.
