A lovely Hatha yoga class for anyone who would like to take things slowly and mindfully.
We explore a range of asanas (postures) and breathing techniques to encourage focus, build strength and balance and increase our range of movement, ending with a deep relaxation to leave you feeling refreshed and energised.
I am a British Wheel of Yoga (BWY) teacher in training, studying the Level 4 BWY Diploma in Teaching Yoga. This has been a thorough 3 year course and ends in October 2021.
I came to yoga almost 15 years ago because I was stiff in my joints and was very inflexible, which was starting to affect my mobility and I worried that things were only going to get worse.
What a life changing discovery!
I found that yoga is wonderful for getting every part of your body moving and feeling better, but also for finding space in your head – a mindful, peaceful awareness. I may still not be particularly flexible, but that doesn’t matter, my body feels better and I love it and I want to be able to share that with you, to enable you to explore your own body and mind.
We practice in blocks of classes, usually about 6 weeks and have a simple theme (for example from the old yogic texts or a specific physical idea to explore, such as lengthening our spines). We have a voyage of discovery about ourselves and how we relate to ourselves physically, mentally, and perhaps spiritually, and how we relate to challenges and life on and off the mat.
Class numbers are limited to support social distancing. The room will be as well ventilated as possible. Masks are worn until everyone is settled on their mats. Unfortunately I will currently be unable to provide mats and props e.g. blocks and belts, should you not already have these. If you contact me I can advise on where these may be purchased. They are not expensive items.
£8 per class payable in advance by BACS transfer, or cash if that’s difficult for you.
I do like to book in blocks of classes at a time. So if you want to drop in or give a class a try, please contact me beforehand to see if there are spaces available to save disappointment or to ask any questions.
