Ilkley Yoga Club has been in existence for over 35 years in the town centre, welcoming beginners and experienced people alike.
We meet weekly on Thursdays from 7:30 to 9:00pm in Christchurch Riddings Hall, Riddings Road.
We practise Hatha yoga, which involves holding various postures, short flowing sequences and balances, designed to stretch and strengthen the muscles, improve balance and posture, and improve the functioning of the body. We also use a variety of breathing exercises and ways of relaxing in order to enhance mindfulness and improve well-being. 

You don't have to be flexible or athletic to begin yoga. All postures, etc. are carefully taught and there are easier alternatives if preferred. However, sports enthusiasts will find yoga complements their other activities.
Suggestions for future sessions are welcomed from our members, who range from teenagers to retired people. We pay weekly, so if you have to miss a session you are not out of pocket. Visiting friends and relatives may also attend too. Currently we charge £6 per session to cover the cost of room hire and a teacher.
If you would like to know more please phone our tutor Margaret Scott on 01943 431248 or 07914 700538.

Wharfedale Beekeepers' Association

Wharfedale Naturalists LogoWharfedale Naturalists
Based in Ilkley, the Society has as its recording area the whole of Wharfedale, Littondale and the valley of the Washburn. With over 500 members, the Society runs winter lectures, carries out conservation work, advises landowners on conservation management, manages its own reserves and arranges walks and visits to sites of natural history interest. Strongly committed to conservation of the local natural heritage, the Society has been maintaining natural history records within its area since its inception. This lengthy run of data assists in monitoring wildlife sites, and providing credible comment and criticism where development is proposed.

The winter evening illustrated talks are very popular. They cover a wide range of subjects from geology to marine life and botany to conservation. While many deal with topics of local concern, others range across the globe. During the summer the recorders, and guest specialists, lead numerous walks to explore our area. These are attended by large numbers of friendly and helpful members who are happy to welcome new faces and to share their own knowledge. Walks may have wild flower, geological, fungus foray or birdwatching themes.
