About The Core Zone


The Core Zone  is a hidden Sanctuary for the mind and body, located in a converted barn studio between Banbury and Brackley.

The fast pace of modern life often means we neglect our general health and wellbeing. To enable our minds and bodies to work efficiently it is vital that we take greater care of ourselves. By dedicating a small amount of time to our bodies regularly, our capacity to function effectively is greatly increased.
