The dynamic Hatha yoga class invites fluid movement as the expression of a subtle exploratory awareness, helping to bring a sense of evenness to body and mind. Precise suggestions are offered as to how align the body, so that the individual can tailor these suggestions to their individual experience. They cover the spectrum of breath, the physical relationships of the body and some of the energetic dimension. The class lasts for 1.5 hours and is open to all. There are options for beginners and plenty of challenges for the experienced.
Cranham Street used to be a blot on the city
Before Grantham House was built, the site became notoriously derelict, making Cranham Street according to the local press a ‘blot on the city’ – wrecked by local children, and a refuge for rats and for ‘layabouts sleeping off the drink’ who were repeatedly evicted by the police.
Where the name Jericho comes from?
The name Jericho is probably taken from the parable of the Good Samaritan. Traditionally the name was given to places where travellers who arrived after the town gates had closed at sunset could find lodgings overnight.
