Free Yoga Session in the Quarry To Tempt First-Timers

One of the region’s leading health and wellbeing companies is celebrating ongoing business growth by launching a first-of-its-kind weekly event in Shrewsbury’s Quarry. 

My Soul Space, Shrewsbury’s only dedicated yoga studio, has launched its Yoga in the Quarry classes which will offer individuals of all ages, genders and abilities, the chance to join together for an hour’s yoga session every Saturday throughout the summer, with the first attendance free, starting from Saturday 4th June at 10am. 

“After trialling the event in the Quarry last year, we received hugely positive feedback from attendees and so we’ve been working hard to make it a more permanent arrangement this year and are delighted to be hosting classes each Saturday across the summer months,” Emma Burton, Owner and Instructor at My Soul Space, explained. “The Quarry is such a beautiful venue, and yoga is one of the most enjoyable and accessible exercises available, so to combine the two whilst making the most of the outdoors is really exciting.”

Yoga is a proven form of exercise which aids the body’s flexibility, builds muscle strength, improves posture, as well as lowers blood pressure. According to Emma, Hot Yoga involves doing the exercise in a room heated at 37oc, and helps back, neck and shoulder pains, as well as depression, anxiety, stress, and insomnia.

“The first class is completely free if booked online, with the price thereafter just £5 for an hour – half the price of attending the studio,” she added. “We wanted to do this to encourage people who’ve never tried yoga before to give it a go. We currently have clients spanning all ages and abilities, including women with young children, high-flying corporates, as well as men who have long-term aches and pains, who have overcome a sports-related injury, and who have more physical jobs such as bricklaying, so it really is open to everyone.”

“I’d encourage anyone interested attending the first complimentary class at 10am on Saturday 4th June to register their place online at or get in touch with a member of the team on 01743 387 087,” Emma concluded. 

Based in Shrewsbury, My Soul Space is a specialist yoga studio which offers a wide range of corporate, one-to-one and group classes covering a comprehensive range of exercises and sessions, from hot yoga, which is held in a room heated to 37oc, Thai Yin Yoga aimed to strengthen and de-stress the mind and body, as well as High Intensity Interval Training.
