Get back into the swing of things with a great elongated session of yoga this weekend – 10th & 11th January 2015.
On Saturday morning (10 – 12.30, Ryhall Village Hall) and Sunday afternoon (2 -4.30, Preston Village Hall) I’ll be running 2 Core Strength workshops which will include suitable exercises for all levels of fitness and yoga experience.
If you are a complete beginner we will start with finding your core muscles, plenty of images and fun ‘explorations’ to actually locate where your core is, what it does and why it is important to keep it healthy.
For those more experienced in yoga and familiar with our class work, I will be teaching a breathing technique called Kapalbhati Pranayama. This practice is a great cleansing exercise and is fantastic for activating and strengthening the core muscles.
This is an active workshop – we will be moving our bodies about for approximately 1 and a half hours working through a range of postures including the Balancing Cat and the Plank. The rest of the time will be spent on breathing exercises, meditation and relaxation. The session is well paced with plenty of options for rest and interspersed with fun visuals, anatomy and philosophy talks.
We’ll be relaxing as usual at the end of our workshop with a longer deep relaxation so bring plenty of blankets and cushions to help you get the maximum from this practice.
