"The Cat's Whiskers in Soho was a live music club and the birthplace of the hand jive in the 1950s - the place was so small, a new style of dance with limited movement had to be invented."

With all the shops and restaurants, sometimes you forget that there are some beautiful residential properties around Charlotte Street.

Yoga Therapy London - Ante Natal Yoga Holborn

Dragons Hall - Holborn & Covent Garden
Yoga Therapy has been used in India for thousands of years to help heal many illnesses and physical injuries. It uses a combination of yoga practices to help restore the body and emotions to full health when illness is present. It is much more specialist than yoga with all sessions tailored to a specific ailment or injury. Yoga Therapy assists the systems of the body to function as efficiently, effectively and naturally as possible. The aim is not simply to help heal the specific symptoms but to target the cause and therefore help to stop the ailment or injury reoccurring. Much medical research is now available showing that Yoga Therapy is very effective in treating many conditions. Yoga Therapy is complimentary to western medicine and should not be viewed as a substitute for a medical diagnosis or the services of a physician. Yoga Therapy can be practised in conjunction with medical treatments being received and also in tandem with other complementary therapies. Website

YogaBugs
