Dear River Room Users
The River Room is currently closed due to Covid Lockdown 2 Restrictions. Please contact your specific teacher as they may well be continuing to teach on-line.
Hopefully we’ll be back open in December.
Big thanks and love to all
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. The River Room has just had a fresh lick of paint so is looking particularly bright and cheerful. Thanks especially Dawn Keyes for donating the bamboo floor and the eco-paint. 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 first and the second time. 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 can be up a set of steps but we are also so happy that a lift has now been installed which is fantastic and long awaited.
