FREE ON LINE YOGA
The following videos offer simple exercises to give you an idea of what we do in the Do Yoga! classes. If you have not practised yoga before it please read through the BASIC GUIDELINES before you start. Always listen to your body and treat it with respect. Never do anything that causes pain.
EXERCISES TO STRENGTHEN YOUR BACK
This is an easy set of gentle exercises to strengthen the muscles running down both sides of the spine. It is also useful if you have a weak side – regular practice will help to balance both sides. It’s not a suitable exercise for pregnancy or any abdominal or breast issues as we lie on the front of the body for quite some time. If you have a problem with your neck, back or sacro-illiac joint, proceed with great caution!
DID YOU GET OUT OF BED ON THE WRONG SIDE?
If you got up feeling grumpy and your back feels a bit tight then these stretches are for you… This practice will give you some get-up-and-go plus give you a little compassion for yourself. This is not suitable for pregnancy or problems which will feel uncomfortable if you lie on the front of your body.
BALANCING CAT EXERCISE
In this video we’ll work gently through the balancing cat exercise – this will strengthen your arms and shoulders, back, legs and hips. A real all round strengthener – just be careful if you have any problems with your wrists – you can still do it but take rests often and always stop if you feel any pain.
FREE ON LINE RELAXATIONS
These exercises give you an idea of the work we do in class – it’s a good idea to relax regularly as the body as the body gets more used to being relaxed and knowing when it is tense. You can listen to these audios when lying on the floor (cover yourself with a blanket) or sitting in a chair or in a meditation position. Do not listen when doing any other activity – driving or handling machines – the aim is to give 100% of your attention to the relaxation and in this way you train your mind to become more focused.
AUTUMN LEAVES MEDITATION
Spend a few minutes quietly with this practice which focuses on accepting change and letting go of old stuff that no longer has purpose in our lives.
BALANCING THE LIGHT AND DARK
This meditation reminds us that without the dark there can be no light.
SOFT EASY BREATHING
A simple breathing relaxation focusing the awareness on the lungs and the gentle movement of the body as it responds to our natural breath.
