Stretch like an astronaut with Guerilla Science in association with the UK Space Agency. This intergalactic yoga class will take you on a tour of the cosmos, and reveal what happens to our bodies and minds when we travel to outer space.
Join this spangled cosmic laboratory, as we use real exercise to experiment with gravity and explore weightlessness – uncovering what it really does to our physiology and psychology.
Taught by both a certified instructor and space scientist, interstellar yoga moves will prepare you for space travel and combat the strange out-of-this-world effects of zero gravity environments.
Space Yoga is a revolutionary new approach to practising yoga, combining exercise and space science. Bend in the name of science, and train for your very own mission to space..
