The aim in the classes is to work within a healthy mobility range to improve strength, flexibility and stability. Movement is synchronised with the breath to loosen up tight areas and to find balance and calm. All classes are friendly and non competitive. Everyone works from their own starting point. We modify poses if there are any tight areas and use props such as bricks, belts, blocks and blankets.
A typical class includes different yoga poses (asanas), breathing exercises (pranayama) and elements of meditation. After a moment of centering we will work through a well rounded sequence of poses. The class finishes with a rejuvenating relaxation to allow the body and mind to completely let go and rest.
After a gentle warm up to increase mobility in the joints and spine, you will be guided through a balanced, slow-paced yet energising sequence of yoga poses, coordinating movement with breath. A great class to build up your strength and stretch those tight muscles, using props or modifications if there are any problem areas.
Level: beginners and level 1. This class is also suitable for complete beginners.
This contemporary and fun style of yoga will tone, strengthen and stretch the whole body, linking breath with movement. It’s a more fast-paced flow of yoga poses and exercises which will increase strength, flexibility and endurance. A flowing sequence of poses and vinyasas will build more heat in the body. The blissful relaxation at the end will leave you feeling energised, calm and connected.
Level, beginners and level 1.
Yin & Yang Yoga
A yoga class to balance Yin & Yang in your practice, while working with breath awareness. The more active yang poses will strengthen and stretch the muscles. Yin poses are held for a longer time to target the connective tissues and release tension and energetic blockages in the body. This is your time to renew, nourish and slow down.
All levels - suitable for complete beginners.
Chair Yoga for Seniors
A gentle yoga class, using chair support to combine a variety of sitting and standing poses. Chair yoga is especially helpful for people who cannot get up and down on the floor easily or who are limited in the ability to kneel or sit cross-legged. Slow, measured movements will build muscle strength and improve balance, reducing the risk of falling as you age. The exercises help keeping the joints in the body healthy and supple, increasing flexibility and range of movement. Restorative breathing exercises, relaxation and meditation are also incorporated.
