Barnstaple: Rock Park
Join our new Park Yoga sessions in Rock Park, Barnstaple.
9.30am – 10.30am every Sunday morning from 5th May to 22nd September.
Train: From the train station follow signs towards the Town Centre and once you have crossed the bridge over the river turn right past the museum and follow the river up into the park.
By foot from Park & Ride: Please follow the footpath, at the far end of the car park. As you reach the end of this short path (perhaps 2 minutes stroll) you will come to a road with a field to your right on the other side of this road. Please cross in to this sports field and walk along the single track path, turning right, with the sports field and river (on the other side of the field) to your left and continue through a path fenced off from the road. Once through this you will see a play park, outside area and green space ahead of you. Our meeting point is to the right of this green space.
Please allow approximately 10 minutes to walk form the park and ride to our meeting point in Rock Park.
Getting there by road: If using SATNAV, the nearest postcode is EX32 9AJ, which brings you to Ladies mile, the road that runs alongside Rock Park. There is limited parking at Rock Park and so we ask you use Park School Carpark wherever possible.
There is parking available at Rock Park but we advise wherever possible you use the Park School Carpark (formerly park and ride car park – EX32 9AX) as there is not much space around the park area.

Tiffany is the founder of Croyde Yoga and has been sharing her love of Yoga in North Devon since 2013, she is a Senior Yoga Teacher registered with Yoga Alliance UK. Her style of teaching is relaxed, non-dogmatic and from the heart. Trained in Ashtanga Vinyasa, Yin, Pregnancy & Postnatal Yoga, Baby Yoga and Teen Yoga. Mama to 3 little ones and forever learning. “Yoga for me is about connecting mind, body and breath to find a sense of heightened awareness. A realisation that we are more than our emotions and much more than our external appearances and situations. By moving our body alongside our breath and taking the time to tune in we can re-connect to the true self and be so much more present with others and the world around us.”
