*****Coronavirus Yoga & MS Dance Class precautionary Cancellations*****

In light of the ongoing Coronavirus outbreak, and as a precaution,  the MS Society North Durham Group in consultation with the class tutors has decided to suspend all seated yoga and dance for MS sessions for a period of three months (subject to review) with immediate effect.

Our prime concern is the health and safety of the staff and those attending the classes.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused, however, we hope that people will understand that the health and safety of everyone involved is our priority.

Keep an eye on our social media pages for any updates.

Thank you.
