Kickboxing & Yoga Weekend in the Peak District

Good for: Those wanting to combine some kickboxing classes & yoga in the countryside in a friendly and upbeat atmosphere.

This weekend offers you the chance to combine an activity you enjoy or have always fancied trying with some time away in the beautiful countryside.

With Tony Mousah
26-28 October 2018
Hartington, The Peak District

Everyone can enjoy this class – it’s both technical & practical as well as good fun. Learning to kick pads is very satisfying for beginners and non-beginners alike. You will practise classic kicks hitting a pad – not another person!


If you have never tried kickboxing before, you will learn some basic moves using a large kicking pad. You will be surprised at how much you can progress in a short time!

If you already enjoy kickboxing, you will be able to have a great session and an opportunity to get some tips from an experienced 5th Dan Black belt.


There are many physical and health benefits to practising yoga – from relieving tightness and greater flexibility to calming the mind.

This is a combination of Sivananda and Ashtanga yoga. Tony has an inclusive teaching style, guiding beginners & non-beginners through a flow of poses and sequences that will improve flexibility, stamina & strength, enhancing posture & encouraging a sense of well-being.
