With Rachel

Pilates is all about strength, balance and alignment, and – seriously – have we ever been in more need of being strong, well-balanced and getting things a little more lined up?! This session gives you the chance to do something for yourself – Stand taller! Stronger! 

Yoga for beginners

YIN YOGA

With Esmerelda

A slow-paced yoga style, with poses held for longer – often seated or lying down – Yin yoga has a meditative approach. A goal is inner silence as postures create an interconnection between body and mind. Increase flexibility and strength through poses that work with connective tissues whilst increasing circulation in the joints. No experience necessary.

study sessions in the cafe!

with Mary

After a change of scene during exam-season? Filter coffee and tea re-fills all afternoon? Quiet zones, co-working space, loads of plug-in points and a seriously studious vibe…? Bring your laptop, books, highlighters, study-buddies or whatever gets you in the zone and join us for these designated study-sessions after-hours in Milk & Honey.

Thursday

mindfulNess: shared silence

With Hannah

Throughout life’s ups-and-downs many of us can feel trapped in flight-or-fight mode. This is a shared, meditative space to ground our awareness around the simplicity of breathing. The session will be largely unguided, creating time for re-connection and stillness. 

 

a change is going to come...

With Esmerelda

Peri, post or menopausal… no one knows the experience better than those of us living the (hormonal) highs-and-lows every day. And whilst high-profile campaigns have increased visibility to some extent in recent years, day-to-day activities and support seems patchy and a little ‘secret’.

Join our weekly session for yoga postures to support with muscle and joint pain, improved sleep, managing ‘hot flushes’, and bringing a sense of peace when overwhelm and anxiety flare. Information around nutrition, lifestyle and HRT options will also be available.

Most importantly, there will be space to develop relationship and community with others (stay for lunch in Milk & Honey cafe afterwards if you can!)

Thursday at 12:15 -1:00

picture house: our new community cinema!

Fancy watching independent, art-house, new releases or other great films that you may not get to see elsewhere? All in a community-led, accessibly-priced and famously-friendly venue…? You are 100% going to love our new idea.

Every month we will be asking you to help us select a new film from a short-list we’ll make available online and in Milk & Honey. All you need to do is come along, load up with drinks and snacks, settle down, and enjoy the show! There’ll be space to stay for a short post-movie conversation (but you’ll also be welcome to just head off, you do you.)


Coming Soon

'caring for the carers' day

A day of special care for those who care for others – including massage, yoga, gardening… and of course lots of cakes and treats in the café. 

It doesn’t matter if you’re a registered Carer or not (we know some people don’t take this status if they care for a family member) – you care, now let us care for you.
