Manchester-based instructor Will Mitchell completed training with some of the city's best instructors - Jamie Clark and Dulcie Aguilar of The Yoga People. He teaches Rocket yoga, a faster-paced variant of Asthanga that incorporates dynamic and physically demanding practices.
Rocket is a powerful, fun and accessible form of yoga, that Will teaches in a focused and traditional Ashtanga style with a set sequence of movements. Pulling from the primary, intermediate and advanced Rocket yoga series in his classes, Will keeps an open mind and attitude towards yoga and movement practice.

Although we would love to avoid work at all costs when we’re travelling, sometimes it’s inevitable. And the longer we’re away from the home, the higher the likelihood you will need to tend to some work. For this reason, Whitworth Locke uniquely houses a co-working area for our residents and guests - where you can brainstorm, collaborate, share ideas or work in isolation. Our design-led co-working spaces have been designed to accommodate everything from the Lone Wolf to the Herd of Black Sheep, containing over 80 different spaces each with their own designated power points and complimentary WiFi access.
Foundation Coffee House offers dynamic, independent creative public workspace fused with speciality tea and coffee. Challenging the traditional coffee shop, they bring a new and exciting environment that aims to provide service that are conductive to the evolving needs of life in Manchester.
Whether you are presenting, conducting a brainstorming or team building session, holding a board meeting or need a quiet place to meet, this space has been intelligently designed to foster creativity and improve focus/productivity.
We encourage creative travellers and locals to come together for a variety of reasons and provide a place in which they are comfortable to stay as long as they like. This includes a range of food and drinks from high quality local artisan producers, so it's easy to keep yourself fuelled all day long.
