Trowbridge: Town Park
Join in with yoga outdoors in Trowbridge Town Park.
The beautiful, well-kept park, originally known as the People’s Park at its opening in the late 19th century, is truly the focal point of Trowbridge. With its open, grassy spaces, children’s play area, mini golf, tennis courts, amongst other features, and the park lake is home to a number of ducks and other waterfowl. There’s also a ‘bug hotel’, a firm favourite with young fans of creepy-crawlies! The park is also perfect for picnics, games or simply relaxing while reading a book. The park also offers a 1k ‘Trim Trail’ for fitness enthusiasts, and is also dog-friendly.

Meet your yoga instructor: Lucia
Lucia is a local yoga teacher who lives in Trowbridge. She has been teaching yoga and mindfulness to adults, teenagers and children since 2017. Lucia firmly believes that yoga should be accessible to everyone; and that the wellbeing of all the people who attend her classes is of the utmost importance. With Lucia, mental and emotional health is as equally important as physical health and wellbeing. Pose adaptation and modifications are always available; no two bodies are the same.
Lucia loves being out in the countryside connecting with nature, to Lucia being out in the natural environment is a ‘soul-food tonic’ therefore, being asked to join the Park Yoga team felt like an absolute joy to have the opportunity to combine her love of being outdoors and her passion to teach yoga. Lucia’s classes typically include pranayama (yoga breathing) asana (poses) vinyasa flows (flowing sequences) mindfulness/meditation practices, affirmations and mudras and most importantly she offers a deep relaxation practice at the end of the class in savasana (the ultimate relaxation pose). Relaxing in savasana allows you to assimilate the effects of the yoga practice while offering a feeling of completeness, openness and wholeness.
