The River Room is a dedicated space to provide retreat from the noise, stress and demands of daily life. The room is spacious, light and situated on the banks of the stunning River Lune. One empty open-plan room (100 square meters)is perfect for group activities such as yoga, meditation, mindfulness, qigong, tai chi, breath-movement awareness, therapeutic dance, reading groups and more. The room can easily accommodate 30 mats and a teacher.
Adjacent to The River Room is The Periscope Space, a small, beautifully lit, square area with chairs and a rug. The Periscope Space is ideal for smaller one-to-one sessions such as coaching, counseling, therapy, massage, acupuncture, shiatsu etc. (can easily fit a mobile therapy couch). Both areas are well heated, simply decorated and have bamboo flooring thanks to the generosity of Dawn Keyes. Yoga and meditation equipment are provided by Will and Rebecca. Special thanks to Larry Wright for helping lay the floor and to everyone who helped paint the room.
The River Room and The Periscope Space are on the first floor of Halton Mill, a vibrant, environmentally friendly and ethical business hub. We are very excited about the number of spaces for contemplative mind-body practices now available at Halton Mill. Check out Halton Mill website for information on additional spaces.
Access to the River Room is currently up a set of steps. A lift is due to be installed in February 2019 which is fantastic and long awaited.
