Cost: £20

Day: Wednesday

Duration: 4 weeks

Tutor: Lou Moore

Course code: 20SU087

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.

Students new to this course will be required to complete a confidential health questionnaire to establish any prior learning and to ensure that any specific needs can be taken into account in lesson planning. Please provide written consent from your GP prior to enrolment if you have a medical condition which may affect your ability to participate in the physical practices.  All new students to this course will be required to fill in a PARQ form and email to adultlearning@rossettschool.co.uk prior to the start of the course.

Lou Moore

Lou first attended a yoga class almost twenty years ago, and knew straight away that it would become a way of life and a passion that she wanted to share. She trained with the British Wheel of Yoga, Dru Yoga and further specialist training in Trauma-informed restorative Yoga and Yoga Nidra and began teaching in 2007, whilst also discovering the joys and stresses of motherhood. Her students to date have ranged in ages from two to ninety two, but she much prefers teaching well behaved adults!

Lou is also a qualified massage therapist and takes a special interest in adapting a yoga practise to suit any physical or health limitations. When she is not promoting calm and stillness Lou likes listening to loud rock music and whizzing down a mountain on a snowboard!
