Stitch Yourself Happy – Yoga & Yarn

Numerous studies have shown that crafting is just as beneficial for your personal wellbeing and mental health as Pilates, yoga and mindfulness are for both physical and mental health. These holidays will combine craft sessions with our most popular experts with mind & body sessions from experienced qualified tutors to leave you relaxed and refreshed and full of crafting inspiration! **Knitting with Jane Crowfoot** Join Jane for a couple of fun and informative hand knitting workshops where you will be shown how to work the 2 handed fair-isle technique, how to add beads and decorative stitching to your knitted fabric whilst working on a small bag project that would make the perfect place to stash your yoga class essentials such as your water bottle and socks. *“The inspiration for my bag design comes from my trips to Mysore, India. The images are intended to give you an idea of techniques we will cover in the class rather than the final colours and detailed design you will work on.”* If you are relatively new to knitting or want to choose an easy project you can opt to work a simple moss stitch bag with simple bead work or, if you are looking for more of a challenge, you can add a fair isle border. Participants will need a good knowledge of knitting stitches and terminology and will need to know how to work from a written pattern. **Yoga with Molly Melhuish** Molly teaches both flow yoga and yin yoga.  Flow yoga is a series of postures linked together and yin yoga is a class where simple floor stretches are held for a few minutes each. Molly will adapt each session to the abilities of the group.
