Yoga at Oscailt
For us, Yoga is about working with each individual body, building strength from the inside out, and opening to the flow of life.
We believe that everyone can practice and benefit from yoga regardless of age, experience, or level of flexibility.
Oscailt aims to create a sanctuary where mind, body and spirit get a chance to recharge, and chill out.
