A slow-paced, fully inclusive and open to all ages and ability levels...embodied with enough yogic philosophy to maintain a practise deeply rooted in yogic tradition, taught in an informal and friendly group setting, with a good dose of humour.
Each session is a blend of movement, including joint mobilisation, spinal mobility and stretching to strengthen, improve balance and the posture.
Breath work to enhance breathing and improve the respiratory system.
Relaxation and meditation practices to counteract the stresses and strains of everyday living.
When we combine these together we have a complete system which can be transformational and improve our overall health and wellbeing.
We shall explore physical movement in preparation for classical yoga postures (asana) and provide confidence to work within the individuals limitations, breathing (pranayama) as a stand alone tool as well as a way to find our way in to and out of the movement and a variety of relaxation techniques to quieten the mind. An understanding of why we are moving, breathing and doing will be explained throughout, and all health benefits highlighted.
