about

our society

We are about all things yoga and wellness. We hold regular yoga classes from qualified instructors most days of the week during term time, as well as specialized workshops and social events.

 

YogiSoc is for everyone, not just experienced yoga practitioners. We have several classes suited for beginners and of course, modifications can always be made during our other classes. Yoga is so much more than physical exercise, but if a workout is what you want, we have classes for that too!

 

Regular social events are also held, bringing together like-minded people.

 

If you have any questions, please head over to our contact us page to get in touch.

The History of Yoga

 

We at YogiSoc think it is important to acknowledge and attempt to understand the complex history of Yoga in order to prevent appropriating it and the cultures from which it originates. While there are many different forms and aspects of yoga across the world, at YogiSoc we focus on movement.

To help our members learn more about the origins of yoga, and its cultural appropriation, we have put together a list of places where you can find out more:

Social justice stories in the yoga community

Yoga and cultural appropriation: mini film

ABCD Yoga and social justice resources

Additionally, Yoga with Adriene hosts an online book club dedicated to books about Yoga and its origins, and an 'essential' reading list for you all to check out!

Some yogis we suggest following for further information and resources are:

Nadia Gilani (instagram: @theyogadissident)
Tejal Patel (instagram: @tejalyoga)

It is also important to us that our classes and events are inclusive to all. With this in mind, if you have any suggestions about how we can improve our inclusivity (or our resource list!) please do get in touch and let us know!
