Sound Bath

If you’re looking to spend a wholesome day nourishing your soul and relaxing with your friends then why not book a private sound bath at Bollington Yoga.

Afternoon Cheese

If you like the idea of a delightful afternoon tea with friends but sweets and cakes aren’t your thing, this could suit you down to the ground!
