    All Levels Yoga – 09.00 

     

    Hatha simply refers to the practice of physical yoga postures, meaning your Ashtanga, vinyasa, Iyengar and Power Yoga classes are all Hatha Yoga. … Hathapractices are designed to align and calm your body, mind, and spirit in preparation for meditation.

    Vinyasa, also called flow because of the smooth way that the poses run together, is one of the most popular contemporary styles of yoga. It’s a broad classification that encompasses many different types of yoga, including Ashtanga and power yoga.

    Power yoga is a general term used to describe a vigorous, fitness-based approach to vinyasa-style yoga. … Power yoga incorporates the athleticism of Ashtanga, including lots of vinyasas (series of poses done in sequence) but gives each teacher the flexibility to teach any poses in any order, making every class different.

    18:00 -23:00
    29/02/2020

     

    The world’s most beautiful music, the finest in the new generation of established international musical talent, a wholly new approach to performance, and an astonishing venue are the four unique ingredients that go into creating Amy Dickson Invites…

    On Saturday 29th February 2020 the Duke and Duchess of Rutland will be opening their remarkable home – Belvoir Castle – to Brit Award winning and Grammy Nominee Amy Dickson and her special invitees, Adam Barnett-Hart (violin) and Simon Mulligan (piano) for a soiree that includes fine classical music, an immersive experience moving around the exquisite public and private rooms of the spectacular castle seen to such wonderful effect in the Netflix series The Crown, and a fine-dining experience in the State Dining Room.

     

March

The Vale of Belvoir is a vibrant and lively area with a wealth of events ranging from brilliantly organised sporting events to food fayres and long-established music festivals. We spend a lot of time searching for events in Melton Mowbray and the surrounding villages and receive many contributions from the community and event organisers. If you have an event in Melton Mowbray or the surrounding area that you know about or are involved in running, please let us know and we’ll include it. There’s no charge for this and we are happy to support local events.

Please contact us if you would like to include anything on the events page.

As well as the events happening in Newark, Melton & Grantham, the busier towns of Nottingham, Leicester and Derby are also within an easy drive. Check our Facebook & Twitter pages for the very latest news.

Make sure you also check out the list of the area’s main attractions listed here. From beautiful National Trust properties to the thrill of skydiving centres, there really is something for everyone. There’s also a wealth of great quality local accommodation if you’re planning a longer stay.
