Course Description

Indian Club Swinging is rooted in the martial and yogic traditions of ancient India and Persia.  During Victorian and Edwardian times Indian Club Swinging was one of the most popular health and vitality exercises in the West, practiced by adults and children across Europe and North America. It was even an event in the early 20th Century Olympic Games! In modern Iran related exercises are performed as a spiritual practice, whilst martial artists throughout the world value its unique dynamic method of strength conditioning. This beginners class introduces a relaxed and gentle approach to the ancient art of Indian Club Swinging, with a focus on relaxation, postural alignment and whole body flowing movement for flexibility, balance, strength and endurance. In flavour it’s more like Tai Chi than Weight Training.
