STRETCH & RELAX

These classes are ideal for beginners or those with problem areas (physical or mental well being). They are suitable for all levels of fitness; men and women over 18.  No previous experience of yoga is necessary as postures and practices are demonstrated and thoroughly explained.  There is scope for plenty of extension work for those more able.  We warm up all parts of the body and work on stretching and strength asana (postures) – sometimes flowing and sometimes static.  In this class you will learn about your own body, strengthening weak areas and opening stiff joints. We work on breathing exercises (pranayama) and end with a 15 minute relaxation session dissolving stress and anxiety.

YOGA

These classes are suitable for all levels of fitness.  Some previous experience of yoga is highly beneficial to gain the necessary understanding of yoga practice and to develop the strength and flexibility of your own body. The class includes asana work with the emphasis on physical and mental equilibrium.  We incorporate pranayama for relaxation and to develop concentration where we sit still for short periods of time. The practice of mudra, bandha, mantra and chanting are sometimes included.  We end the class with a guided relaxation.

All classes are planned in detail beforehand; I work to themes for each academic year with each term building a picture around the theme and each class building knowledge and understanding around the theme. In this way students develop thorough understanding of themselves, their bodies and how yoga works. My classes are kept small to  enable personal assistance throughout the class. This produces competent students who are able to develop their own personal practice to work on in between classes. Due to the nature of my classes, I don’t offer ‘drop ins’.

Please book by email beforehand as places are limited and arrive 10 minutes early to settle in. You will need to bring a mat, blocks and blanket.  Please allow extra time before your first class to find the hall and fill out a registration form.
