We currently offer up to 18 free Wellbeing Classes for patients and carers. As an Autumn Special Offer we are offering 8 free sessions of Gentle Yoga, Dance of The Heart and Evening Yoga.  All classes are held in the Mulberry Room. You will be guided through the class according to your ability. Equipment is provided, please dress in comfortable, loose clothing.

Your health and wellbeing is very important to us. Whilst we try our best to keep our classes inclusive and suitable for mixed abilities, that is not always possible for all classes. Before accessing classes all clients will need to be assessed for suitability by the class teacher. With this in mind, please arrive fifteen minutes early for your first class and in good time generally.

Spaces are limited so please book in advance with one of our welcomers or by contacting Front Office at The Mulberry Centre on 020 8321 6300 / email talk@themulberrycentre.co.uk. Cancellations require 12-24 hours notice.

Come and give something new a try – you never know what you might enjoy until you do it!
