Bridie Apple is passionate that the joys and benefits of yoga should be available to everyone.
Working to remove the barriers to people starting their yoga practice such as…
- I cant afford a £10 yoga class
- I am not fit enough
- I am not flexible enough
- I dont have any nice yoga clothes
- I am not the right body shape
- People will giggle at me in the poses
- I dont have transport to get to the yoga class
- I wont fit in
There is such a long list of possible barriers which many people face to them accessing yoga and getting their foot in the door of their first yoga class.
Yoga was never designed to be a commercial commodity…
Yoga is recorded as being designed by ancient communities in India from a need to connect body and mind. All of which Bridie is working towards with BridieApple.com is to bring yoga back to these two core principles of yoga:

Examples of community yoga with Bridie Apple
Bridie is working with many different community groups across Dorset, Devon and Somerset, with the aim of bringing yoga to the community at an affordable cost.
An example is an 8 week Big Lottery Fund funded yoga community program running in Weymouth Dorset, UK. This project will see yoga classes running at the Littlemoor community center in the heart of the community at an affordable price (£2.20 per class). Click this link to read more.
Another example is the Christmas Day yoga class put on to give people who would be spending Christmas Day on their own, or who suffer from mental health triggers during the festive season to have somewhere positive to go and have some kind human interaction on what can be a hard day for many. In addition we raise nearly £200 for Mind Dorset and helped 17 people not spend Christmas on their own. Click this link to read more.
