Knit2gether

Discover the similarities between yoga and knitting!

After discovering stitchlinks.com which focuses on ‘the use of therapeutic knitting as a healthcare tool – unravelling the neuroscience behind the bilateral, rhythmic, automatic movements and the complex combination of physiological, psychological, behavioural, social and creative benefits experienced’ we developed Knit2gether. There are definite similarities between the two activities of yoga and knitting. US Yogi Sara Stiles says ‘Knitting feels very meditative, like all the yoga stuff I do," she explains. "Because you're doing a similar pattern over and over, it becomes very calming. It has that effect that yoga and meditation have, that you stop thinking about all the things you have to do, and you're brought right into the moment." 

During your workshop experienced yoga teachers will focus on exercises that will improve your sitting posture, relax your shoulders, improve your vision and allow knitting to be a beneficial pastime rather than one that makes you tense and stiff. It will be aimed at beginners and experienced knitters and yogis, all levels should benefit hugely from this practice. If you are a beginner you will learn to knit too!
