This class is devoted to exploring breathing (pranayama) practice and meditation. Time spent dwelling on our breath is particularly conducive to creating a settled condition for meditation. Participation in this class is greatly enhanced by coming with regularity. All are welcome to this class whether we are new to this kind of work or experienced. The cost is £5 or according to your means. It comes after my yoga class. it is great to do both, but this hour is also self-standing. Once a month or so, this class will be devoted to community Kirtan, which is a lovely and joyous activity to participate in. See my website for details of this and the dates on which it happens. On those days there is no meditation class.
Margaret Thatcher used to live here?
In her Oxford days, she lived at 12 Richmond Road. It is alleged she shared the house with two red-hot communists who lived on a diet of sausages. This may account for her later views on socialists and known dislike of sausages.
The origins of Walton?
Walton is derived from “wall town” which was used centuries ago to indicate a location outside the Oxford city walls. The ancient manor of Walton was certainly in existence before the Norman conquest in 1066.
